    Presences

    Many months ago - last year - I started a theme involving volunteers of a local community of artists in my home town.
    The members were invited to be photographed by me in the place they usually work. Unfortunately, only eight people volunteered.
    The goal was to make an exposition with the photographs side by side with their own work.
    The exposition is scheduled for the 18th January 2013 at last !
    Here is a sheet with each of the images.

    EDIT - Sorry but I erased the image

    Hi António,

    Always glad to see you back here - it looks like you have been busy.

    I wonder if they might like their pictures on their business cards?
    (next time they get some printed)

    Cheers,

    Very nice, hopefully eight is enough. If not, you could also showcase their work stations without the artist in the image. I was at an art museum recently and that was one of the exhibits, the artist's work area.

    Re: Presences

    Thank you Dave and John

    The images are printed and in preparation to be framed.
    I printed them on Hahnemuhle Fine Rag Baryta 215gr with my R3000 printer.
    Excellent paper but rather expensive.
    The prints are a bit smaller than A4 (11.7 x 8.3 in) because a little margin is necessary for the canvas which is 10 cm large (about 4 in).
    The hole is sustained by a frame.
    Later, the opening is on the 18th this month I will be able to post some images.
    I hope everybody likes the images. Only two people of the eight have seen the photographs.
    I intend to act like in a theatre at the opening because all frames will be wrapped in a common paper and I will be taking it away !

    I think these are excellent. Beautiful lighting, compositions and B&W processing.

    After people view these I bet more artists will regret not volunteering.

    Antonoi what a great exhiition of portraits. The quality of your photographs is impressive.You show them well and we can see them as they work and what they created. This is a winning concept IMO. Magnifico!

    Excellent work. Portraits with the subject in their natural environment are far more natural than studio shots.

    After my enforced absence due to my father's illness, I am only now getting to view and read threads posted during January.

    May I add my compliments to those already given above. This is a very impressive set of images. I also think that your idea for the project has been excellent and you have given me some ideas fro what I might do.
