    First French Large Format Conference & Exhibition in N&icirc;mes, France next June 4 and 5, 2004.



    Dear Large Format friends

    [pre]
    It is a pleasure to announce the first Large Format Conference &
    Exhibition in N&icirc;mes, south of France next June, Friday 4 and Saturday
    June 5, 2004.

    For those who will travel to Western Europe next June, welcome to the
    conference. N&icirc;mes is located not far from Arles, a well-known
    photographic "mecca" in France (even Ansel Adams visited Arles,
    invited by Lartigue !!). N&icirc;mes can be reached easily by motorway and
    high speed train from Paris, Lyons and Marseilles. Major French
    airports are Paris seconded by Nice on the riviera ; closest large
    domestic airport to N&icirc;mes is Montpellier. Travel time to N&icirc;mes by
    high-speed train (TGV) from Paris are : 2 hours to Lyons plus 1h30
    from Lyons to N&icirc;mes ; direct TGV from Paris to N&icirc;mes in only 3 hours.

    The conference is organized by Henri Peyre
    (http://www.galerie-photo.com) professor of photography at the N&icirc;mes
    School of Fine Arts. The conference is hosted by the N&icirc;mes School of
    fine Arts, admission is FREE. Language will be... French ;-);-) but
    many contributors do speak English fluently.

    On Friday June 4, 7 conferences on LF photography plus one workshop on
    panoramic photography. On Saturday June 6, hands-on various view
    camera models plus a pinhole workshop. Acces to conferences is free
    and unrestricted, however the number of attendants to the practical
    pinhole worshop is strictly limited to 10.

    An overview of the program :

    on Friday 4, conferences by Henri Peyre, Henri Gaud, Emmanuel Bigler
    will try to convince you of the interest of large format,
    high-resolution photography. So since you are already convinced, you
    can skip this ;-) Marc Genevrier, Arnaud Frich and Yvon Haze will
    address the question of fine digital prints in all aspects,
    resolution, color calibration, and fine digital print from large
    format film. Chrsitian Nze will close the series of conferences with
    alternative fine print processes (e.g. platinum, palladium etc..)

    On Friday 4 evening a panorama photography workshop will be conducted
    by Arnaud Frich.

    On Saturday 6, pinhole workshop by Robert Colognoni ; exhibition of
    large format prints either silver-halide or digital, informal
    gathering and hands-on view cameras as well as panorama cameras.

    N&icirc;mes has a rich Roman heritage including a Roman Circus and one of
    the most well preserved Roman Temple, the Square House. Participants
    to the hands-on sessions will be invited to pratical photo sessions
    dowtown N&icirc;mes.
    [/pre]



    Looking forward to meeting you in N&icirc;mes June 4 and 5 2004 !

    Monsier Bigler,

    It's "this June"!!! ("next June" by convention usually means June 2005).

    "Monsier Bigler, It's "this June"!!! ("next June" by convention usually means June 2005)."

    well - it depends on where your conventions are from - where I come from next June would mean the next one coming up (i.e. 2004) - this "next June" meaning 2005 in this context used to confuse the heck out of me when I first came to N America...! (people would say on Friday something was "next Sunday" meaning 9 days time or whatever, when I thought it meant two days time - what they meant was what I would refer to as on "Sunday week" :-) )

    Tim - if you think you had difficulties, I wonder what on Earth the poor N. Americanos made of your references to "Sunday week"... ;-)

    Good luck with the conference Emmanuel.

    Cheers,

    Sounds like a grand opportunity-- I hope it is a success! While I'm stuck in Fresno CA for the forseeable future, I'd certainly like the opportunity to attend some time in the future. Good Luck Emmanuel!
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.

    Sorry for 'next' this is an (incorrect) word-to-word translation of 'juin prochain'. So the 1st French LF conference will be held this june, Friday 4 and Saturday 5 i.e. next month ;-)

    This reminds me another common mistake in German : "meet together at 6:30" is 'halb-sieben', not 'halb-sechs' ;-);-)

    though not incorrect if you are English :-)

    "This reminds me another common mistake in German : "meet together at 6:30" is 'halb-sieben', not 'halb-sechs' ;-);-)"

    Or if you are English - "half six" (I've also confused a good few Americans with that as well - one actually though I meant three o'clock....!)

    <HTML>Just a few words about this conference held on June 5 and 6, 2004 : we had about 40 people attending the conference in the Nīmes School of Fine Arts, not counting visitors to the companion exhibition.

    Besides traditional-style lectures, we had a pinhole workshop, a panoramic workshop, an informal display of various LF cameras and equipment. The French HELIOS group
    www.photo-helios.org
    made an interesting presentation of more than a dozen of comparative B&W printing techniques from platinum to heliography in side-to-side comparison with inkjet techniques, all from the same original subject.

    The companion exhibition demonstrated various printing techniques from MF/LF original images, either traditional or digital/inkjet, plus some visual examples of specific capabilities of large format camera movements ; upon special request from enthusiastic visitors, the exhibition will be re-displayed in other countries, an unexpected, good surprise to the organizers.

    NEXT ;-) MF/LF French conference is scheduled in 2006 ; a small group of enthusiasts federated by www.galerie-photo.com has already started to work on it.
