Post-gallery opening blog post...

My little show opened on Thursday, March 17th, so I wanted to give it a bit more coverage as you can see it until April 16th. The gallery is open on Saturdays, but If you give Thomas Schultz a call, he says he will open up at just about any time if you want to stop by. More info here and here.
The show features 25 framed peel-apart Polaroids, and three large archival prints. The large, unframed, signed prints are for sale at $250 (which may seem to be expensive but a large portion of that is the cost to print). The original Polaroids are not for sale. If you are interested, contact me!
The night started slow but picked up as the sun set. I had a steady stream of visitors of all ages. Most were curious about the format. A couple color shots of the show, Type 669 and Fuji FP-100C with the 195.

A small collection of visitors with Thomas Shultz, gallery purveyor, at center.

Another shot of Tom chatting with friends...

A future Polaroid fan!

Photogenic hair...

And photogenic faces...

Standing around and obviously discussing my work! =P

And fire dancers! There was other activity at the center and this was the most anticipated of the night...

All in all, I had an excellent night. Just enough visitors to keep me busy and social, but still a small enough gathering to keep things comfortable. Please check it out if you are in the area!

Take some time and read this article about El Mirage.
Until next time, seeya!

  3. Awesome!!! And congratulations Sean. Looks like a wonderful show! I really like how all the cameras are set out so people can see the tools of your trade. Very nice edition to your show. I so wish I was closer so I could see it in person.

  4. Hey Sean, Congrats on your show. I have been following your blog and your flickr account for a while now and they never cease to amaze me. I'm glad that your work has gotten exposure (no pun intended) out in the real world and not just on the webverse.

  8. Hi Sean. I hope you don't mind, but I've saved all of these excellent images to use as a slideshow when we run the short piece about the show in the next FW video podcast. Lemme know if not.

    Cheers,

    Ed
