200 Yards is a San Francisco-based photo experiment presented as an offshoot project by the fine folks over at Lightbox SF.
- Choose a venue. The sponsors find a gallery in San Francisco to host the show.
- Draw a 200 yard radius circle around said venue.
- Set photographers loose in this 200 yard radius of the gallery to explore and photograph every detail of the neighborhood.
- Display the best photos from the pool of photos submitted back at the venue–the nucleus of the 200 yard circle.
Winners for Show #4 have been chosen. Two of my prints will be displayed among the 15 or so other prints that were chosen. Here are the details:
Dates: June 24 – July 22, 2011
Opening Reception: June 24, 6pm-9pm
Location: Dickerman Prints at 3180 17th St, San Francisco
So come on by and have a gander at the chosen prints. One of them that I got a preview of is a mind-blowing panorama of several hundred stitched-together photos of an entire city block.
I got a tour of Dickerman Prints tonight and ran some prints. Let me just say that this place is a wonderland of digital darkroom goodness for the most demanding photographers. The place was designed by photographers for photographers. There are self-serve cubicle workstations with perfectly-calibrated monitors running Lightroom and Photoshop. Just set up your prints on a digital paper canvas and drop it in the queue to go to the monstrous Italian Polielettronica LaserLab printer–considered by many as the finest photo printer made.
Show #5 is currently open, with the epicenter at Leavenworth & Post St. So put on your photo eyes and hit the streets of the TenderNob. See 200yards.com for details
Here are the photos I submitted for Show #4 within the 200 yard radius of Dickerman Prints. Two were chosen. I was in a dark B&W mood that day:
