Fujifilm has an annual photography exhibition called Printlife in New York City that’ll include some of my pictures, and also some pictures captured by my wife, Amanda. The Printlife Exhibition will be at Grand Central Station from October 16th through the 20th, and will showcase a whopping 13,640 small square prints. Three of those pictures were captured by me, and three of them captured by Amanda.
The intention of the Printlife Exhibition is to celebrate and encourage the printed picture. It was open to anyone to submit, and so Amanda and I decided to participate, both of us sending in three pictures, the maximum allowed per person. In return, Fujifilm sent us printed copies of our submissions for free. It’s cool that they did that, and it’s cool that our pictures will be included in this massive display in New York City.
Unfortunately, there’s no way that I will be able to travel to New York and see the exhibition in person. Are you planning to go? Do you have pictures in this exhibition, too? Let me know in the comments!
Got 3 in myself, they just took the first 13,000 plus and winners will be drawn at random. Getting the prints was cool. Mine were from X-Pro2 and X-E3 with 50mm F2 Summicron Dual Range with a 7Artisans adapter.
Yeah, it didn’t require any skill, other than perhaps punctuality, to get selected. The requirements were very minimal. It’s still pretty awesome to be included. It’ll make for a good story, at the very least. Are you going to go to the exhibition?
Had my fill of NYC when I lived up there. 😉 Rural now. Used to go to guitar and car shows. I think it’s a great thing that anyone could enter.
Happy where I am snapping sunsets, flora and animals, Fujifilm cameras have got me interested in photography again. I have 3 and a pile of lenses, just bought a Godox V350F flash. Might do an album of black and whites of old barns and houses here. Dave Trewren is my inspiration.
Awesome! There’s something to be said for rural living. B&W barns and old homes sounds like an excellent project.
I’m sure the exhibit will be amazing. Wish I could go, but it just isn’t in the cards this year. Take care!
I submitted but not sure I’ll make it over. I’m about two hours away. Maybe. 🙂
Two hours isn’t that far, but I understand that “life” happens, and you can’t do everything, you have to pick and choose. I do hope you make it.
Congratulations Ritchie. Where is the exhibit? For how long? Perhaps I can go and find your and Amanda’s prints.
That would be awesome! It’s at the Grand Central Station in NYC late next week (Wednesday through Sunday).
Congrats, RItchie! It’s always a nice experience to see your own photos as prints and even better, when being presented in print form to other people. Enjoy!
I appreciate it!
