This last weekend I attended the showing of Pressing On: The Letterpress Film at the Interrobang Film festival.
Pressing On: The Letterpress Film trailer
Here is the description of the film, directed by Erin Beckloff & Andrew Quinnat from the Interrobang website:
"The modern world was born on a printing press. Once essential to communication, the 500-year-old process is now in danger of being lost as its caretakers age. From self-proclaimed basement hoarders to the famed Hatch Show Print, Pressing On: The Letterpress Film explores the question: why has letterpress survived? Worlds of each character emerge as unusual narratives—joyful, mournful, reflective and visionary—are punctuated with on-screen visual candy, every shot meticulously composed. Captivating personalities blend with wood, metal and type as young printers strive to save this historic process in a film created for the designer, type nerd, historian and collector in us all."
As I do every year I'm reflecting on photos I entered into the Iowa State Fair Photography Salon.
The Photography Salon is a juried competition which draws entries from all over the United States and the World.
This year I'm entering four photos in the categories:
I'll get a card in the mail at the end of July with the results.
Wish me luck!
