    We had one last year, but what about this year. All expressions of interest should be posted.

    Cheers

    NO PIXELS - 2009

    Fintan can I read from your responce that you might now want to allow work other than analog to be shown? May the world stop turning.

    I missed out on the last one through ill health but would certainly be up for this one ok.

    I kinda like the 'no pixels' name for the exhibition btw.

    I did like the name but after a while sounded negative sortof describing what the prints weren't and not what they were if you get me.

    You could turn it round and say what it is. "Pure Silver" for example?

    (Not that it's any of my business as I'm not in Ireland - it's just good to see people promoting analogue photography :smile: )

    What about "NO PIXELS -IRELAND 2009". I think that the name is interesting and does encompass what the exhibition is about - traditional photography featuring work from / of Ireland.
    To establish a name I feel is important,it can travel down the years with only a change of date to suit.

    Cheers

    I agree that the name should promote what we are about rather than what we are not. No Pixels was fun/novelty name we came up with last year and it worked well but I think a new name should be chosen for a new exhibition.

    Something like Pete's suggestion would be good. APUG Ireland presents "Pure Silver"

    Anyway the important thing is a venue, what had you in mind Vincent, its kinda late to get one for this year?

    By the way, I'm just a maybe as my time will be limited when the nipper arrives.

    If the show is going to be in a Blue State, then instead of "No Pixels" how about "Just Say No to Pixels" or "Just Say No to the Dark Side"?

    I'd really like to take part this year as I missed out last year and thought it was a really great exhibition.
    You all have my permission to administer thumb screws if I don't come up with the goods on time..

    I'm game to offer a few prints for consideration of the elder Rodinal sniffers amongst you.

    I Think No Pixels is negative and makes it seem like analog is a lesser process, we shouldn't mention the dreaded digital in the heading. I like Pure Silver as it is positive and sells the idea.
    TEX is right though that we have to have a brand that can be maintained by simply adding the year on. I'll throw a few off the cuff suggestions into the ring, not all serious.

    Silver Ireland
    Ireland in Silver
    Captured in Silver
    Captured on Silver
    Captured by Silver
    Stories in silver
    Silver Storytellers
    Pictured in Silver
    Silver Rebels
    Silver Alchemists
    Isle of Silver
    Life in Silver
    A Life of Silver
    Shoot, Enlarge, Frame

    United Axis of Analog
    Silver Junkies

    Tex and his amazing multi-silvered dreamcoat !
    Fizz does Silver (probably sounds too porno!)
    Waiting for Rodinal !

    After WB Yeats : “The Cloths of Heaven” with a subtitle more photo related as that poem kinda captures what it is all about in a roundabout way. (for me anyway ) and the poem and a laymans explanation of how silver produces a photo could be the introduction on entering and on posters.

    He Wishes for the Cloths of Heaven


    Had I the heavens' embroidered cloths,
    Enwrought with golden and silver light,
    The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
    Of night and light and the half-light,
    I would spread the cloths under your feet:
    But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
    I have spread my dreams under your feet;
    Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

    William Butler Yeats




    I wonder could we get the Gallery of Photography and combine with them to run 30 minute darkroom slots for schools during the day. All those teens who think Holgas are cool. And they get a quick demo of printing in the darkroom, that is the hook to get new converts. It would be good for them too and good for photography. Might get them a few converts. Sometime in September when schools are just back and still not exam driven. There has to be some synergy with business to give this traction in my opinion: Just a thought.

    I think the name of it is a secondary (but important) consideration. Key question really is can we find a venue in time for this year?

    Is Airfiled possible Fintan? Or do we want somewhere different?

    That's my favourite Yeats poem..the words of which are painted on the ceiling of the Astrology exhibition in Birr Castle in Co. Offaly ..

    This is the same Castle the Countess Mary Rosse, wife of the Earl of Rosse began experimenting with the Daguerreotype in 1842.. There's a fascinating exhibition there where many of the contents of her original darkroom are on display.. She was an amazing woman..

    History lesson over.. back to normal transmission... :rolleyes:

    I really like the name Pure Silver too by the way...

    I haven't approached Airfield, actually Peter did that last year. I would say it's too late for this year there. TEX has suggested Dublin Camera Club before but I'm not sure if he has progressed that.

    some interesting names people.

    Since this is APUG and we are Ireland, I wonder if 'APUG Ireland Region Annual Exhibition 2009' would be too obvious??

    "when the nipper arrives"

    Peter this is the first I heard about your expected arrival. Congratulations to you both. Don't worry about missing out on anything. That's the great thing about analog photography it's not going anywhere, it has already arrived and will remain around without change until you have time to return.
    In the meantime practice up on your baby snaps & remember Infrared should not be your first choice when shooting.

    Cheers
    Vincent

    Thats a nice title Pete, do like it.

    Anyway I missed out last time but would like to get involved this time.:smile:

    Peter

    Keep the Infrared handy It works a treat on babies, just drop the filter. Also useful for portraits.
