A visit to Gnestaplanket 2012, a photoexhibition and photo fleamarket.
As I wrote about in my last post, we, me and my son, visited a photo fleamarket and photoexhibition in Gnesta, a little rural village a bit south from Stockholm.
The flea market was kind of small, and the best things had already been sold when we got there, but I bought a photobook, some film and a couple of filters. Quite enough.
The photo exhibition was much more fun to see. About 20 something photographers showed their work on the wall on the backside of an old trainstation building.
Very inspiring! Here is a couple of photos from the exhibition.
These are absolutely gorgeous! Whenever I see such great shots I immediately feel like going back to film. Great stuff!
Thank you very much! 🙂
Hey, what’s stopping you? It is a great feeling too, working with film, very organic and hands-on, it gives me the pleasure of “being in charge” of the whole procedure, it is so wonderful for the creative process.
Wonderful people shots — the tones are excellent, especially of the young woman. What a great idea for an exhibition space!
Thank you so much! 🙂
Yes, isn’t she great? I asked her if it was okey to photograph her looking at the photos, and I just love that she looks so unconcerned by my presence.
It really was a great place, a very rough and different place to put photos on. There was everything between inkjet prints on stationary paper, set up with staples, to beautiful fine art on fibre paper, properly framed. And the variety was wonderfully liberating.
A very inspiring day indeed!
Just trying to get back into this after a few weeks; these pix are really great (as yours always are) and make me even more determined to get back into black and white film and to find T-max developer for my T-max film (but 35mm).
Thank you very much!
I have been away too, but just for one week, so I’m working on catching up myself…. 😉
Yes, film is gorgeous to work with, so please keep up your fantastic work, I just love your photos and blog!
wow! so happy at finding another person who still values the value of film….(!)…i hope that makes sense…! just love your shots…beautifully composed and artistically presented! carry on the good work! vive la film!
I’m happy too, finding other that also loves film! Thanks again for your kind words!
Film is forever!! 🙂
What an awesome venue! The images absolutely scream out quality and make me want to go out with my Leica.
Thank you James for your always so kind words, most appreciated!
But hey, what’s stopping you? Leica is a great companion on a photowalk! 😉
So very true, he says rummaging around in his camera bags. This weekend it shall be by my side.
There’s that cheeky smile again. No honestly I am going to use the camera..Have a great day!
Cheeky? Oups, sorry! It was meant to be kind, I’m just glad for your decision.
Have a great day you too!
I am sorry but sometimes the English humour does not always translate very well. I did not mean it as rude or insult about the cheeky smile. It is just lovely to see the smiling face at the end of your reply. He appears a lot which means to me a person with a happy soul. Thanks for your understanding and hope the day is going well. Kind regard, James
Do not worry, no offense taken. Everything is good, so here’s another one 😀
Thanks Marie lol and big smiles
wow, beautiful set!
Such nice, smooth tones on all the photos. I really do appreciate the analog look, but with a wistful sigh, I know I have to stay where I am. Life’s complicated enough right now! Thank you for the share –
Thank you very much for your kind words, and I hope you soon will be seeing a brighter future!
Really love this series. Thanks for inspiring me with your film exploits.
Thank you very much Gnat, it is huge to be able to inspire others!
And I truly feel the same about your blog, great inspiration!
