We would like to express a huge thank you to all of those who made Medium 2014 a spectacular success! Once again we witnessed an amazing week of unforgettable lectures, inspiring portfolio reviews, and stimulating dialogue from photographers who came to San Diego from across the country, and for the first time, internationally (thank you Japan!).
From the keynote lecture with Duane Michals, to the amazing range of lectures all weekend, it was easy to feel invigorated by those who are pushing the boundaries of contemporary photography. The free lectures with Chantel Paul, Mary Virginia Swanson, Lytro, and Open Show LA were a great addition to the festival and a wonderful opportunity to offer no-cost events to the public.
Our third annual Open Portfolio Walk (a free event held the first night of the festival each year) is always a fun and exciting evening! It’s a great opportunity to see so many photographers’ portfolios up close and chat with the artists about what they have been working on.
Thanks to everyone who supported by this year’s FLASH! Pop-up Shop in between lectures on Saturday and Sunday. Tinytpe necklaces, vernacular photos, and fun & funky SNAP t-shirts were just a few of the unique items for sale. We look forward to bringing it back next year with some new items, including our custom Medium apparel! If you missed picking up a t-shirt and want to purchase one, email scott b. davis and we’ll send one out to you!
Of course, we can’t wait to see another round of creative photographers next year! Mark your calendars for Oct 22-25, 2015 at the Lafayette Hotel in San Diego.
