On the Wall

Fragments of Tokyo

After the usual dramatics (the styrene boards wouldn’t stick to the wall; one fell down while i was out getting padded tape… which then needed trimming, and forced me to re-order the shots) the exhibition is on the wall at Place M. I should probably mail them about fixing the link to my photograph on the front page.

Here’s hoping that they stay stuck to the wall until everyone gets to see them…

I’ll be there on Thursday from around 3pm, and most of Saturday and Sunday afternoon. The afternoon party has become an evening thing, from 6:30pm until they throw us out. It’s not clear to me how or why the time changed, but this appears to be the final answer.

Watanabe-san made the above poster for me. It’s not actually part of the show. Mostly because i couldn’t get it clean enough. Looks like it was used to clean the house! Feel free to grab it and re-blog it. <hint hint>

Fragments of Tokyo Exhibition

My first photography exhibition is opening next week, Monday, 8th of February, and is up until Sunday, the 14th.

We are having a little soiree on Thursday afternoon (what is a soiree in the afternoon called?), the 11th. It’s a national holiday (建国記念日 – founding of the nation day) so hopefully a few people will be able to drop by, have a glass of wine, and a chat. The gallery (Place M) is open from 1pm, but that’s not a particularly civilised time to start drinking… so how about 3pm? Oh, and don’t get your hopes up, we’re not – so there won’t be cases of wine!

I’m putting up nine pictures… or maybe ten… or eight… won’t really know until i see them on the wall. It has been quite the experience getting from negatives to getting A2 prints hung on a wall. Along the way i’ve lost a little sleep, worried and drunk too much, and acquired a printer. Here’s hoping that it’ll be easier next time… assuming there is a “next time”.

Edit: also, this, which Watanabe-san kindly made as banner ad, but we don’t have anywhere to use it:

It’s great having talented friends.
