    Midwest Large Format Asylum Print Show January 27th

    The Midwest Large Format Asylum will hold its 11th annual portfolio print show on, what we call "Inspiration Saturday," January 27th at the Best Western Indian Oak hotel in Chesterton, Indiana. We will start at about 9 am, depending on weather & will go all day. We average about 15 to 20 portfolios. We light for about 20 prints. Each photographer shows their portfolio one at a time & can comment or answer questions afterward. There is no judging....just looking & enjoying. Order of showing is determined by drawing numbers from a hat. Lunch is catered in. All skill levels are welcome. The only rule is that the images you show were made with a LF camera. This is a free event. Many photographers stay Friday and/or Saturday night and enjoy the company of other large format shooters after at dinner and breakfast. You can find more information on our website (www.midwestlargeformat.com) or on our Facebook page (you will need to ask to be accepted). Hope you consider putting a stack of prints together & join us for a very exhausting, but inspiring day.

    Here is a YouTube video shot by Craig Sheaks at our print review in 2016. It will give you a pretty good idea what the day is like.

    It can be an exhausting day but is more fun than anything else you can do on a January day in northern Indiana!
    Politically, aerodynamically, and fashionably incorrect.

    I plan to head over on Saturday. Looking forward to seeing a lot of interesting portfolios. Something different every year. The older I get the more inspiration I need to haul that heavy camera around.

    This was my first time.....and it was great. Such talent. It has been going for over 10 years. Over two dozen came for the event and most brought their work.

    I'll second Francis. Another good print show this year. Had 16 people show work. Various subject matter but consistently high quality prints. Thanks to Francis I got to see my first 20x24 contact prints. And nice to see some younger people attending. This stuff will carry on as us older people fade away.
