The Program and Schedule
Thursday morning starts with registration and "5 prints in 5 minutes," and opportunity for participants to share their images with others.
Thursday afternoon there will be the traditional and very popular blind print exchange. Those wish to participate will bring a print that will be randomly exchanged with another person who brings one.
Thursday evening there will be a lecture at the Santa Fe University of Art and Design, Tipton Hall, by one of our 5 Mexican photographic presenters, Cristina Kahlo, who will lecture about her great grandfather Guillermo Kahlo who was well known Mexican photographer during the early 20th century. Guillermo's position as an influential figure in Mexican photography has been overshadowed by his having been the father of Frida Kahlo. Ms. Kahlo, a noted photographer in her own right, will enlighten us.
Following the lecture: A reception for the exhibition of photographs by our 5 guest Mexican photographers in the Marion Center at the University.

Five Prints in Five Minutes
A unique and fun way to see each other's prints. Maddy wields her gong. She can count to five. She recently retired from teaching the second grade so she knows how to discipline a group of rowdies!
Blind Print Exchange
Bring an alt photographic print and randomly receive one in exchange. Jan Pietrzak runs the random generator. You takes your chances, but it is always fun.
