127 Day Online Exhibition - 12th of July, 2020

Welcome to the 127 Day online exhibition for the 12th of July, 2020! Despite unprecedented worldwide trauma, 21 intrepid souls across four continents virtually joined together to make these photographs on the 12th of July, 2020, using 127-format analogue media - sometimes under the most trying conditions. I encourage you to page down to see the wonderful variety of individual styles, subject matter, cameras, and films.

If you photograph on film or other analogue media in 127 film format, you're invited to join us for the next 127 Day on the December 7, 2020.
 
Enjoy!

Tomorrow is 127 Day!

Tomorrow, Sunday, the 12th of July, 2020, is 127 Day!

127 Film Photography will feature 127-format photographs made on the 12th of July, 2020, in a special online exhibition. You're invited to participate!

No fees, no competition, just a friendly virtual community joining together to make 127-format photos on the 12th of July, 2020.


To show your work,

  1. Take 127-format photographs on the 12th of July, 2020.
  2. Send one of your 127-format photographs from the 12th of July to 127 Film Photography. Please email one jpg file, 500 pixels wide, to 127filmformat ~at~ gmail.com, by September 12, 2020. (This allows two months to get your film developed and scanned).
  3. In the subject line of your email, type "July 2020 127 Day."
  4. In the body of the email, please include the copyright symbol, your name, the title of the photograph, location, camera and film types, and your website address (or other link to your work).

All types of 127 film format* are welcome, whether the film began its existence as 127, or you used 35 mm film in a 127 camera, or you respooled 46mm film, or you cut down 120 film to 127 size ... or maybe you have a technique that I don't know about yet - if so, please tell me so I can share it with others who love this format (with full credit to you, of course - or perhaps you'd like to write a short article for 127 Film Photography about it!). Photos made on 127 film in a different size camera are welcome too.

127 Film Photography will publish all photos received (as long as they are in 127 format and do not contain images of nudity, violence, or exploitation).

I look forward to seeing your 127 Day photos! 

 

Good light and happy photographing!


*Sorry, digital photos in an aspect ratio similar to 127 film (or any other digital photos) do NOT qualify.

One month till 127 Day - 12th of July, 2020

Recent months have brought upheaval, grief, and rage. The continuing global COVID-19 pandemic kept (and is keeping) many of us in our homes and brought fear, uncertainty, economic devastation, and loss. The horrific murder of George Floyd by police officers became the latest in a centuries-long history of racist violence perpetrated by deeply entrenched systems of white supremacy. I stand in solidarity with the Black community in voicing outrage over this violence and over racism in all its forms.

And ... 127 Day continues as scheduled. Keeping regular, stable routines is one way to help manage stress and uncertainty. The community of this worldwide event is a way we can virtually be together in a traumatic time. And making art can function as a form of self-care, which I think it's probably fair to say we all need these days. 

127 Day is just one month away - on Sunday, the 12th of July, 2020. This would be a good time to make sure your camera is working and you have the film you need.


127 Film Photography will feature 127-format photographs made on the 12th of July, 2020, in a special online exhibition. You're invited to participate!

No fees, no competition, just a friendly virtual community joining together to make 127-format photos on
the 12th of July, 2020.

To show your work,

  1. Take 127-format photographs on  the 12th of July, 2020.
  2. Send one of your 127-format photographs from the 12th of July to 127 Film Photography. Please email one jpg file, 500 pixels wide, to 127filmformat ~at~ gmail.com, by September 12, 2020. (This allows two months to get your film developed and scanned).
