Raw Talent 12x12 2011 Exhibit

After a month and half long wait the day finally came to see all of the 2011 12x12 Vancouver Photo Marathon contestants photos all on exhibit for the first time last night at PhotoHaus Gallery. I was very relieved to see that all my photos actually turned out. It was also very interesting to see all the different interpretations by all the other photographers on the 12 themes that we were given. There were a lot of common elements used but each had its own nuances. Everyone who went to the show were encouraged to be their own judges and to pick their favourite among the 60 exhibits and submit their ballets. I wonder if anyone actually spotted the number 29 in the tile mosaic that I submitted for the first theme that was your entry number plus a different angle. If you missed the show you can still see all the contestants photos now in an online gallery. The winners of each theme received canvas prints and the overall best picture, best theme and best series winners got their prints mounted on aluminum, how cool is that. I'm already thinking about what to do next year. Here's some shots from the exhibit.
