Matsuri Exhibition – Half-time Report

It’s Sunday morning in Tokyo and the exhibition is going great. First I need to say a huge thanks to the team that helped set up the exhibition. We were meant to set up on Monday night but due to the typhoon I arrived more than 36 hours late. Tuesday, should have been a day off for the Pentax staff, but at 10AM on Tuesday morning Pentax staff, the crew from Frame-man who mounted the prints, and the man from Horiuchi Color Ltd who produced the giant B0 prints all came to help. It was such a wonderful group effort, with everyone really excited to make this exhibition special.

A steady stream of visitors have seen the exhibit, including staff from various division of Pentax, pro photographers and several friends who were able to stop by. For all those of you who can’t make it I made a couple of 360 panoramas on my iPhone which you can check out. If you look at the links with your iPhone or iPad you can even use the gyroscope function to move around.

That’s all for now, but if you’re in Tokyo this week, please stop by and say hello.

    Hi, I visited your exhibition last week. It was good to see some positve photos of Japan. The big prints were really fantastic and i liked the two gaikokujin in the bottom left of the “human mass” picture. Shame you were not there as it would have been good to meet. Maybe another time.
