写真家のJohn Sypal(ジョン・サイパル)さんからネブラスカで撮ったプリントをご寄贈頂きました!

My contribution to the So Books support sale thus weekend in Tokyo is these two prints from my Nebraska series.

Photographers and photography lovers from all over the country and even the world have kindly donated photobooks and prints for a fundraising sale this weekend in Naka Meguro to help support this locally owned and well loved store after it’s disastrous loss of stock due to flooding this past June. You can see what will be available from the tumble from which this image was reblogged.

Seen: 氣の果て / The End of Qi

Who: Tomona Hayashi

Where: 3rd District Gallery, Shinjuku

When: September 9 - 21, 2014 / 1pm-8pm

Tomona told me she thought that directly pinning her prints to the walls of the gallery is a more fitting way to display them compared to being neatly matted and lined up on the wall. It’s true that work in this current show would have a different impact on the viewer if it was exhibited such a traditional way. That’s the thing- the number of ways to deal with pictures is uncountable. So what you see in a gallery is what you get- it’s the physical result of the time, talent, desires, and whims of the artist and their environment. If what you see doesn’t connect there’s no use in struggling with it- move on. If what you see creates a spark- or makes you look at life afterwards a little differently then it’s worth keeping in mind. Tomona’s work has this effect on me, anyway.

The responsibility of the viewer isn’t to try and determine the intention of an artist- it’s to figure out what the things you see mean to you.

The responsibility of the artist- the only responsibility- is to keep on working. I’m glad that Tomona keeps on making pictures.

Musashino Art University
Fujifilm Instax 500AF

The newly announced (and previously hinted at) Fujifilm INSTAX WIDE 300 looks to be an updated Instax 500AF, a camera first released in 1999. As someone who’s been known  I’m pretty excited and am planning on getting one the day it comes out.
The 300 shares the same waaaay off to the side positioned viewfinder as the 210. (Since the film ejects out the top of the camera this was an unavoidable design element.) With my camera I was able to solve some parallax issues when framing with a small strip of tape on the top of the lens housing to help center the lens before shooting.
