Coverage: A lot of it...

With my premiere exhibition in Hamburg, Germany, alot of other media sources found the topic worthy of dicussion or treatment... here is a synopsis and some links (this is probably a very incomplete list)...

Online News: Spiegel Online (again)
Being an official sponsor of the exhibition, they contributed a second article on the topic shortly before the opening event. The turn out was wonderful and feedback even better.
link to their follow-up article

Television: RBB | Polylux
An extremely popular news magazine, wanted to put together a very entertaining piece and was present at the opening event filming. I played into their desire to create something entertaining, had fun doing it, but wish the treatment had been a little more serious.
Watch the video

Television: RTL/RTL2 | Unknown Program
Interviewed me in the gallery and covered the second event at the gallery, a party and judging of the photography contest submissions. I have not seen their piece yet and don't have a link at this time. Perhaps it has not aired yet because they requested a follow-up at the closing event.

Television: SAT1 | News
Produced a short news piece about the exhibition, interview segments with me, and a some footage of me trying out a few Hamburg locations via camera tossing. No link at this time.

Radio: DeutschelandRadioKultur
Interviewed me and a couple others from the community who had given the camera toss technique a try. No link at this time. Another program on this station has requested another interview.

Unrelated to the Exhibition...

Television: CNN-IBN India
After arriving in Europe noticed that there was some activity on the topic in India. I had been contacted by this reporter but he ended up putting together a story using India sources before I could find time to work with him.

Web Magazine Article:
Before leaving for Europe this photgraphy centric web magazine wrote an online article about camera toss and recieved permission to use an image.
Read the article

Online News/Magazines: Italy
Two articles have appeared in the last week in Italy. None of them contacted me and I'm quite curious what they say. If anyone can translate these two articles I would truely appreciate it.

clickykbd's picks - issue 17

A second installment of photo pool selections in my attempt to catch up while travelling in europe for my photography exhibition in Hamburg, Germany. Making this posting from Vienna, Austria. Intentionally throwing cameras, and my work, was a very hot topic in German media. I'll update the "In the Press" side-bar section shortly.

Way behind on the pool picks! Issue 16 and 17 will be from when I left the USA to current. Some really wonderful work while I have been out of touch. The following is the first installment uploaded since issue 15.

Flags the Camera Toss Way, by Offstage4

Germany by Offstage4

Offstage4 has outdone himeself with this Camera Toss'd tribute to the countries of the world, particularly their flags, appropriately timed the current Winter Olympics. I was very impressed. I encourage all to have a look at his entire photo set. If you think creating these was easy, think again... and read his blog posting about how he did it!

Inspiring work shane!

Attempt at catching up...

Just a posting to say I've been way behind on keeping up with this blog, and the developments in the Camera Toss community due to my exhibition in Hamburg, Germany... and the travelling I've been doing on the side.

I just wanted to say, after having reviewed the photo pool finally for some new pool picks postings, I'm very impressed with the work of the community of late. Several people have latched onto the idea and taken it in some very new directions. I'll be attempting to highlight some of this work in the coming postings. I have a week to rest in Wien (Vienna) before returning to the gallery and eventually home to Austin.

If you include press coverage of the exhibition, our "in the press" side-bar element is also extremely dated now. It seems like I couldn't walk without stepping on a journalists toes!

Keep inspiring and exploring new worlds!
