Photoblogger Sneak Preview of Adams/Eisenstaedt at the AGO

The exhibit: Photography by Ansel Adams and Alfred Eisenstaedt.

The event: A Photobloggers Sneak Preview and Photography Panel with Louie Palu (G&M Photojournalist), Rannie Turingan (Photojunkie.ca) and John Reeves (Pro Photographer).

The exhibit: Brilliant and worth seeing - particularly Eisenstaedt's photojournalistic work. You'll find yourself smiling at the work on the wall.

The event: A well-attended and well-organized gathering of Toronto's photobloggers, but otherwise - if I may be brutally honest - completely uninspiring. The "photography" discussion lasted 5 minutes before becoming a "photography industry" discussion in which John Reeves went on fidgeting wildly in his seat and dropping names of all the 'great men' who have made and are making ground-breaking photography in the industry... before dismissing photoblogging as a way to make an impact.

Suddenly I didn't feel so bad that I had to wake up my friend and sneak out early to attend a previous engagement.
