Tomorrow is 127 Day!

Tomorrow, Thursday, January 27, 2022, is 127 Day!

127 Film Photography will feature 127-format photographs made on January 27, 2022, 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
January 27, 2022.

To show your work,

  1. Take 127-format photographs on January 27, 2022.
  2. Send one of your 127-format photographs that you took on January 27 to 127 Film Photography. Please email one jpg file, 500 pixels wide, to 127filmformat ~at~ gmail.com, by February 27, 2022. (This allows a month to get your film developed and scanned).
  3. In the subject line of your email, type "January 2022 127 Day."
  4. In the body of the email, please include the following information: copyright symbol, your name, the title of the photograph, location, camera and film types, and your website address (or other link to your work). In that order. Please follow this example EXACTLY (you don't have to use initials if you prefer to be known by your full name!). If you want to direct people to an Instagram page, please use the URL for the page, not an "@" handle (which will not work as a link).

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 an 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!

127 Day Exhibition - December 7, 2021

Welcome to the 127 Day online exhibition for December 7, 2021! Twenty artists in six countries across three continents joined together virtually on December 7, 2021, using 127-format analogue media, to make these photographs. 4x4 twin-lens reflex cameras were popular this time around, being used in over half the photographs, and yet there were several made with Brownies and with rarer cameras. I encourage you to page down to see the wonderful variety of individual styles, subject matter, 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, which is coming up soon, on  January 27, 2022.
 
Enjoy!
