Pacific New Media has been holding its annual Contemporary Photography in Hawaii exhibition for the last 10 years. It's certainly the best exhibit in Hawaii that's solely dedicated to photography. This year there were over 300 entries and 45 were chosen. One of my five photos was included, the second time in three years I've had something in the show. Funny though, I thought it was my weakest entry. The opening reception was August 3 at Marks Garage in Chinatown and the show will be up through August 31. For more information about location and hours of the exhibit, see the previous blog. You can also see a slideshow of all 45 entries at this address: https://pnmlab.com/2018/08/08/contemporary-photography-in-hawaii-2018-gallery/ I helped to install the exhibit which gave me an opportunity to meet some of the photographers and that's been the best part of this whole thing. I was especially glad to meet James Knudsen whose work I was just introduced to and which I like alot. You can find his website here: www.jamesknudsenphotography.com Below are photos I took at opening night.
Pacific New Media Foundation is starting its 10th annual photography exhibit this coming Friday, August 3, at 6pm at the ARTS at Marks Garage in Chinatown. After the opening reception, the exhibit will be open from 12 to 5, Tuesday through Saturday, until August 31. In my opinion, this is the best photography exhibit in Hawai'i. PNM had over 100 photographers submit over 400 photos and 45 photos were chosen. I was lucky to get one photo in the exhibit this year. Two years ago I had two photos in the exhibit, the first time I'd submitted anything, and last year I wasn't able to get anything in. I helped a bit with the set up yesterday and I can tell you the quality of the photos is excellent. I also enjoyed getting to know several photographers and finding out more about their work. I'll do another blog next week that highlights some of my favorite photos. Below is a PDF about the exhibit.
