Exhibition submissions

by Stefan Fletcher May. 19, 2010 4843 views

I prepared these as my submissions for an exhibition in Salon-de-Provence. It looks like I won't be able to submit them because I have to go up to Paris for yet another family emergency. I really should be getting used to them by now.

Anyway, I'd much rather show these to you instead (even if you've all seen them all before - sorry).

There are three sets:

1. Les Fleurs du mâle, a terrible pun on Baudelaire's book of poems by (almost) the same title and which here means ‘flowers by a male’, i.e., yours truly

2. Marmara, pictures of statutes

3. Περιπλανήσεις, which means “wanderings” in modern Greek

The prints are 30 x 42 cm.

The files were optimised for printing, not for the web colour space (sRGB), so the colours are probably faded and dull compared to the prints.

Excellent collection. Beautiful even if the colors are not as brilliant as your prints.

Your photos will always be numnero uno for me Stefan. Hope you get another chance to submit your work and that the family debacle is resolved soon.

these are truly wonderful. big wow especially to last two... I think this platform is better than any exhibition but of course, seeing your own pictures enlarged on a wall rather than a computer screen is something special... I`m sure there will be other opportunities and being there for your family will be more rewarding than the exhibition.

I like "περιπλανήσεις" (obviously) but I think #1 is the best! Very well done - better luck next time with the exhibition and all the luck with the family!

You have already won our appreciation......wonderful images.

A bunch of really good shots, some of which I've admired before, I love that graffitied street. Having been on PB for a while now and spent some time fossicking around and not wishing to be rude, I'm not entirely convinced that there is any need for more macro shots of flowers; or is that just me?

ce sera pour une autre fois! mais nul doute que cette expo aurait eu du succés, vu la qualité des photos!
la 1 et la 3 restent mes préférées!

You should submit them somewhere. They deserve to be shared more broadly. Good luck with the family crisis. Hope it resolves quickly.

Now, That's one beautiful series of pictures ! Each one of them worthy of being saved into the 'favourites' by the members of PB!

This is a wonderful series of photos and it is a shame that you won't be able to submit them to the exhibition. Hope all turns out for the best, for you and your family! Thanks for sharing them with us!

I couldn't access your blog sooner (Photoblog technical problems it seems) .
I love the selection.
I like all of them (even #4 - the funny philosopher with his scary gaze - was it you who glued Cheerios onto his eyes ;) ?! ) but #1, 3, 7 and 9 sing to me.
I know them well already but they look handsomely enhanced with the framing and titles, ready to take flight for an exhibition :(
So sorry you couldn't submit this time, but it will be a next time for sure :)

More importantly it's taking care of your family problems and I really really hope it's something that could be solved with ease and as soon as possible. I wish you luck.
