    los angeles river orotones _ exhibit

    I just thought i'd post a notice of the exhibition in Pasadena of my large scale "orotones" from the los angeles river -- [see my gallery for a brief explanation and some very difficult to understand images - they don't translate well from the original gold mirrored quality] -- i've been working on the project for quite a while and it's nice to see them get some air.

    i would love to see some LApug-ers on saturday!

    I'm supposed to go to an ex-roomie's opening that night but I'll do everything in my power to be there -! I'd love to see your stuff.

    Being on the East Coast, I can't make your opening. I will, however, be in the area later in the month, and will definitely stop in. The pictures from this series are amazing, and I can't imagine how beautiful they are in life. All the best with your opening.

    Hello Matt,

    I made it by the show tonight. Looked for you but I was there between 715 and just before 8 and asked a few people but they weren't sure where you were. Sorry I missed you as it would have been nice to meet a fellow apugger who does such beautiful work. They really were incredible. What a presence. I had business here and was lucky to have had it fall on the day of your opening. I shoot wet plate collodion and have wanted to try orotones, so maybe this will help motivate.

    Once again great work. Sorry we missed meeting.

    All my best,

    Zebra,

    Monty

    I called Saturday night about 10 minutes to 7 to ask some questions. Got a recording, no one answered. Called again later, got the answering machine with no useful information.

    I decided to do something else instead.

    just wanted to let you know - those of you that are interested in possibly seeing the work - that we are throwing a little party at the space friday november 30, 7 until whenever (probably just before Roscoe's closes for chicken and waffles).

    hope to see some of you there... sh!t hit the fan at the studio just before the opening, but hopefully i'll be able to be there early (ok, on time) this time.

    Mathew,
    Wish I had known about your exhibit earlier. I don't have time to drive up from SD before it closes, and I am a fan of orotones.

    sorry jim, actually despite what the invites say, they will be up through the new year - owner of the space was too busy to put a new show up in december... so... if you want to come up, let me know and i'll introduce you to my version of the orotone/fauxrotone (size dictating materials/method in this case).
