Funny that I haven't read anything about the upcoming exhibition in Athens. I will check with the National Archeological Museum in order to find the dates the thing will start and will try to be there at the opening (if it's not invitation-only). Sounds interesting.
I looked briefly on the net for information but found nothing about the exhibit. I have a feeling that the show has not been set up yet. If you find out anything more I am sure that APUG readers will be interested. Your impressions of the show would also be an interesting post.
A rock pile ceases to be a rock pile the moment a single man contemplates it, bearing within him the image of a cathedral.
I had 3 Pentax ME supers with 1 having a motor drive. Typically 1 loaded with Ektachrome 100 and 1 with 800. The 3rd would have B&W tri x. I did my own E6 and slide mounting and used my Durst M601 for the B&W. I also had a Minolta Autocord, Yashica D and Mat. I still have all of it except the Minolta Autocord.
I started photography in 1988. My first camera was a found Minolta 7000AF with a 35-70 zoom. I was hooked right away and upgraded to a Canon T-90 and Canon F1N, Olympic (Lake Placid) edition.
My most used films were Tri-X and HP5.
Or they can freely start their own thread, chock-a-block full of riveting interest.
In 1988, I was shooting a Canon A-1, with the motor drive. Used the high speed setting to get my five year old son jumping into a swimming pool. Thought I was oh, so cool. Burned half a roll of film on one jump. (He hesitated. :-)
Bought my first Rolleicord around then, and my first medium format folder.
Film... For the Canon is Kodachrome 64. I did not like the look of negative prints.
hard to think back, but it was proably a low point for Photography, I had just spent half a year on a contact where my job involved shooting 16,000 shots a day of documents on an automated system using a Kodak MRD-2 Camera Head on Kodak Datacapture Microfilm. processing done by a secure lab so I never saw the results, just got general feedback...
What little I did for myself at that time was mostly on Movie Negative short ends sent away for slides on MP print film. (the old get a free roll with every roll processed.)

Hah, I was using a Canon A-1 bought new in 1984 and a T90 purchased in 1987. Still using both of them along with an AE-1, F1-N and an EF.
Black and white film in those days was Tri-X, FP4 and the comparatively new fangled TMax films. All bought in bulk and reloaded.
Not much has changed film wise since then. Loads more genuine FD lenses after selling off some third party gear.
No experimenting with a million different films/papers/developers. I settled on that combo, or the same in 35mm, and never changed. That is, not until numbers 2 and 4 went away for good. Everything I do today, digitally, aspires to that look and that simplicity of technique.
