Thanks Matt, I had read a DIFFERENT exchange and thought this was it.

I'm more than happy to ship worldwide, if that helps with the final pairings. I normally pack my submissions to withstand direct nuclear strikes anyway.

Once a photographer is convinced that the camera can lie and that, strictly speaking, the vast majority of photographs are "camera lies," inasmuch as they tell only part of a story or tell it in a distorted form, half the battle is won. Once he has conceded that photography is not a "naturalistic" medium of rendition and that striving for "naturalism" in a photograph is futile, he can turn his attention to using a camera to make more effective pictures.
Welcome in Andrej and Kevin!
My latest list. Please let me know if I missed anyone:
Edward (Ed Bray)
Ken (Ken Nadvornick)
Kevin (Kevin Kehler)
I made it to the short list. This will be my first run and I'm looking forward to it!
Now, what shall I shoot & print? I'll think of something ... That's half the fun.
Maybe a bit of Bronica SQ-B, Natasha 618 pinhole, Leica III, my converted Gevabox (into pinhole) or my Canonet camera?
So much options ....
(BTW: I'm willing to ship worldwide)

Hello everyone, looking forward to this...
Oh, dot wanna miss this! Just got back into town, do please add me to the list.
I like the concept of this so I'm in for this round. I've read the FAQ. I don't mind shipping worldwide. Eugene, I'll send you a pm with my address.

in postcard exchage you have to send a card to every participant of that round, or you select a slightly smaller amount of cards. So you have to deal with 20-40 cards every round.
In BPX you have to send only one, but usually larger print.
Costs are not that expansive, if you avoid sendig a real huge print overseas. A decent print can be sent in a large enveloppe.
