This morning, after a restless night dreaming that I’d missed the start of the exhibition and nerves keeping me awake, I spent a really fun two hours sending the Tribe images out into the world via twitter.
A friend insisted that to have a proper exhibition launch I needed champagne. So he and his boyfriend had a champagne breakfast twitter exhibition party for me. There were four of us sitting around laughing and chatting as I uploaded the images one by one to twitter. They would retweet or favourite the images and comment on them. A couple of them needed a quick lesson in how to use twitter but it was a really lovely way to do it. If it hadn’t been for them I’d have been sitting at my computer at 7am this morning alone tweeting with much less merriment.
It was a really interesting way to launch a photographic series and I had some fantastic support from people in Brazil, Germany and France as well as lots of friends here giving me some twitter love.
My website is now updated with the images on there. I’m looking into the best options for an online store addition to my website but for now any purchase requests will have to be via email. The images are available in two sizes. The larger size is 30cm x 45cm (11.8″ x 17.7″) and each image is limited to 5 prints, all signed and hand numbered printed on beautiful Canson 310gsm Baryta Photographique Paper for $300. For the first time I’m also offering a smaller size of 21cm x 30cm (8.3″ x 11.8″) with each image limited to 10 prints, signed and numbered on the same Canson paper for $95. The smaller option offers people to purchase all three images of a model.
For those of you that joined in the twitter conversation this morning, thank you very much for your support. It’s greatly appreciated. If you haven’t seen all the images yet, visit brentonparry.com
