This month some friends invited me to join their photo exhibition, "Eclectic Wonders 2", in Yokohama. It was my first exhibition and I was quite excited. For my theme, I decided to use photos taken on my 1958 medium format film camera. I extended my theme by using portraits only. Some of the subjects were strangers I approached and asked if I could take their photo and others were people I already knew.
I left my camera hanging on the side of my assigned space. I think that caused more questions and comments than the actual photos. How does it work? Where did you get it? Did it really take these photos? Is it safe there?
For me, the most interesting part of the weekend was when a group of photographic students said they were impressed by the portraits and then I let them try out the camera. Of course, I enjoyed seeing the work of the other photographers and being part of that group. Here are the photos that I exhibited.
