If you are in the Twin Cities and haven’t already received an email from me or one of the other six photographers, mark your calendars to join us for the Opening Reception, 7-11 p.m., Friday, April 30, at Gallery 332 in the Northrup King Building, 1500 Jackson St. NE in Minneapolis.
The show is coming together, quickly. I’m in the middle of printing: sixteen 14″x21″ prints on Epson Exhibition Fiber 17″x22″ paper (see my prior discussion of conversion to the Exhibition Fiber medium). Eleven printed so far, and they look magnificent. I have found I’ve had to make small adjustments using Hue/Saturation and Curves adjustment layers to faithfully replicate screen appearance. (A principal problem, encountered with all papers in my experience, is a tendency to block up the shadows, which is corrected by slight lightening in the very darkest portion of the prints — pure black still goes to black, but the shadows contain detail as I see them on my CRT.)
Police Overreaction Department
A story of police overreaction here. If true, it seems rather outrageous, especially if it occurred with cooperation with a compliant judge who issued the search warrant, and especially since the warrant seems to contain no signature and is based on erroneous application of the law.
