RPS International Print Exhibition

April 22, 2008

I was quite surprised today to receive an email from the Royal Photographic Society informing me that one of my prints had been selected for this year’s International Print Exhibition. It is always a great pleasure to have work accepted into this show which this year attracted 3000 entries and selected just 124. Although I was delighted to get the news, I was puzzled by the fact that what I deemed to be my strongest three pieces had been omitted (including my pinhole entry) and the photo I included for the sake of variety and which I didn’t count as “serious” work was the one to make it into the exhibition. Perhaps there is a message here for me!

The rejected photos were my pinhole “Still life in ice – magnolia leaves” and the two below which are digital images made at the same time as my pinhole equivalents. I think I lost my nerve when making my submission and felt that the lensed versions were more likely to be accepted than the pinhole versions. I should possibly have submitted the pinhole work with more confidence and conviction.
