Thanks to Marc Prust, I have my first look at the FotoGrafia di Roma photobook exhibition. Very nice!

Regretfully due to a change in travel plans, I was unable to attend the grand opening of Fotografia di Roma last week. Looking at this photograph by Marc I can see that Margherita Nuti along with Marco Delogu, the Artistic Director of FotoGrafia, Claudia Caprotti and their support teams designed and installed an excellent exhibition space. Thanks to you all!

I have to admit, I feel a bit like those at the turn of the twenty century who were able to for the first time view photographs of far away lands and look at images of sights and views that they could not directly experience themselves. I find it odd that for as often as I view photographs as a photobook review, that this would be an experience I felt. I need to reflect on this experience some more.

Nevertheless, Marc has captured the essence of this exhibit in this one photograph; the physical photobooks that are accessible for viewing and inspection, the stream of interior photographs on the adjacent wall and my artistic statement hung in the midst of this exhibition. Very nice indeed.

I am looking forward to the postings of other photographs and comments of those who attended. Please share!

Cheers!!

  3. I drop a leave a response whenever I like a article on a website
    or I have something to add to the conversation. It’s caused by the sincerness communicated in the post I browsed. And on this post Fotografia Photobook Exhibit – First look The PhotoBook. I was excited enough to drop a thought :) I do have some questions for you if you do not mind. Could it be just me or do some of these comments appear as if they are left by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are posting at additional places, I’d like to keep
    up with you. Could you list the complete urls of all
    your communal sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
