Greetings Large Format Photographers,

After waiting several months for AIPAD to determine dates for 2010 no one yet knows when the event will take place.

The New England Large Format Photography Collective had hoped to announce the 3rd annual Cancer Benefit (aka Raid Our Gallery) to coincide with this grand exhibition of photography in NYC. That is not going to happen.

Only time will tell if we have waited too long to publicize the next Raid Our Gallery for 2010. The grand reception and exhibition will be one of the middle Thursdays of April 2010 here in central Connecticut.

More information will be forthcoming but we felt it imperative to make the LF community aware of our ongoing commitment to this most worthwhile cause.

Warm Regards, Steve Sherman

Excellent news, Steve. It's a wonderful event for a very good cause, and most of us could learn a thing or two from how well you manage and coordinate the photography aspect. I proudly display my two event posters. Looking forward to adding a third.

A weekend of Large Format activities will begin immediately following Thursday's exhibition of Large Format photographs. Details to follow.

Man, I sure don't want to do anything that will benefit cancer, but I sure hope that your wonderful efforts support the fight against it. Good luck.

:) How many times have we heard "Give money in support of muscular dystrophy" etc.

Always been one of my pet peeves.

My vote, Orange jump suit, cleaned, pressed and accented with Red and Blue 2009 World Series championship tie, and don't forget the yellow crocs!

I would get arrested with that outfit in the general public. That suit is only for darkroom use.
Looking forward to visiting your area of the world again, I hope Paul can come up again with some of his magic formula. I want to take home as many as I can carry this time.

Don't worry, Bob. I'm in, and will bring as much as I can carry.

Steve:

Although I am not local, I am an East-Coaster at heart (NJ) and may well move back to either RI, CT or NH is a few years when my daughter attends college somewhere in New England (hopefully RISD).

If you'd take a print from a desert-dweller, I'd be happy to contribute.

Of course, we would be thrilled to accept prints from the beautiful Southwest. Details will follow.

I'll take the hit on this one, my apologies for not being more specific in that the LF Exhibition is held to benefit Cancer Research with all proceeds going directly to the Middlesex Cancer Center.

That now being cleared up Brian we do hope you'll support the exhibition and even join in the weekend festivities here in Connecticut come next April.

Cheers!

Having participated for the last two years I can't wait to contribute again. Not only is the cause worthwhile, the weekend events that Steve lines up is an incredible synergy of photographers. It truly is an excellent example of what is possible when a community of photographers pool talent, effort and willpower. Thanks Steve for driving this.

Steve,

no worries. I checked. The restraining orders Connecticut put out on Carnie don't expire for a while. We should be okay

McCutchen + Dumante Manhattans = Nuclear Holocaust, so I guess that means that now we have to drop Paletti.

Wait a moment now.
Mr Paletti is bringing up a magical formula for me and under no circumstance should he be dropped, unless he sends it up by fedx then thats ok.

Sorry Steve, I should have put a smilie at the end, I knew what you meant, the heading just struck me as funny. I can't travel that far for the festivities but I'd be glad to submit a print once you get the details out.

So many wonderful friends we have met through the medium of photography and in particular the LF exhibition to benefit Cancer Research.

Mr. Paletti will always be in the top of the batting order so there'll be no pinch hitter there.

Happy to report, the Dumante is now local and we'll have plenty on hand

Well, that's certainly a relief. If Paul weren't coming I'd have to drop out. I don't know how to make a Manhattan.

Steve, can you give us approximate (I'm talking really ballpark here) due dates for submission of work? both scans and prints? thanks.

The short answer Jim is March 1st for prints and scans, Dumante and George Stagg @ the door

This is the most difficult part of the process, realistically 30-40 days prior too. Invariably we get photogs asking for a few more days or a week, our hands are tied because we've made a commitment to the Cancer Center and quite possibly have turned away contributors because we've met our quota, therefore we are at everyone's mercy once you've pledged support.

NELFPC meets about four weeks before the event to photograph and catalog 150 prints, that is a big project and we need many hands. So when we set a date to do that we need to have all the entries on hand.

It truly is an inspirational event to be a part of but for that week or so when NELFPC's general stress level rises dramatically, nevertheless, we can't wait.

Details and guidelines will be posted before Labor Day.
