Sebastião Salgado Gallery Reception

Filed under: photography — Tags: , , — richard @ 8:42 am

One thing about shooting film is that sometimes you’d forget that you have taken photos that have not been developed yet. Such is the case that after the Sebastião Salgado talk, we went to gallery opening a few days later. Alas, due to the long drive through commuting traffic, by the time we arrived, Mr. Salgado had already left.

It was an eye opener to see some of the images printed large, and sure enough, even though he switched to dSLR on shooting Gensis, grains are added to the images so that when printed, they look like film images.

I like the bird’s eye view of gallery openings. You can see many interactions:
