Canon Headquarters Exhibit Preparation and Showroom Video (Podcast 615)

After three months of running at full speed, last week I needed a rest. Not being one for just sitting down and doing nothing, I changed gears and gave myself a week to make some background music for a video I'd put together to show some of the large...

    Congratulations Martin
    Greetings from the UK.
    You should feel very proud and honoured to have this kind of exhibition, well done.
    I do not follow many other photographers or explore their websites but I have to say you are the best..
    The wooden lighthouse is still there at Dovercourt albeit with a wind farm in the distance.
    Have a great show at Canon.
    Best Regards

      Hi Fred,

      I am indeed very proud to have this opportunity. 🙂

      It was only about 15 months ago when I shot the Dovercourt Lighthouse, but I’m pleased it’s still there.

      Thanks for the comment and kind words!

    As always, enjoyed the podcast with the video being a nice bonus.

    The exhibition looked superb with the prints quite stunning. I’m so glad that you included “Umbrella man at Skógafoss”.
    It is a personal favourite as it reminds me of Werner Bischof’s “Shinto priests in the garden of the Meiji Temple”.

    Keep up the great work

      Thanks Keith!

      I’m really poleased you enjoyed this.

      Is there anywhere online I can see Werner Bischof’s image? I just searched and came up dry, but I’d love to check it out if you know of somewhere.

    Hi Martin,

    The image was taken in 1951 when Bischof was travelling around Japan. If you google “Courtyard of the Meiji shrine” you should get it.
    It’s part of the Magnum Catalogue.

    A similar image I also like is “Town of Kyoto. Kiyomizu temple”, again taken in 1951, and also part of the Magnum Catalogue.

    Happy hunting!

      Hi Keith,

      Aah, yes. I’ve seen that photo before. Beautiful! Thanks for the information and recommendation. And for thinking of such a classic image on seeing mine.

    Congratulations Martin. Stunning exhibition. I really enjoyed reading “Silence and Life”. Just about sums it all up.

      Thanks, Ulana!

      I wondered if anyone would bother to stop the video and read that. 🙂

      Looking forward to visiting some of those locations with you in just a few weeks now!

      Thanks, Janny! I’m pleased you enjoyed this.

      The exhibition was actually extended until the end of this month, and I’ll be going with a friend probably for the last time next week. It’s been a wonderful opportunity and experience.
