GIANT - Christian Fletcher - The Epson Print Gallery

Event Title: GIANT.
Participating Artists: Christian Fletcher.

Venue: The Epson Print Gallery, Team Digital, 268 Lord Street, Perth.

Description: We are all told, size doesn't matter! In most cases this is
true. If you're talking about photography though, SIZE DOES MATTER.

Christian Fletcher, not a very big man himself, caught on to this idea many
years ago. Stitching with a 5D Mark II was the order of the day. Multiple
shots, multiple headaches, it got the job done but it was just outright
annoying. Christian wanted big files, big prints and more resolution that
you could poke a small guy at.

Along came the mighty PhaseOne camera. First he was happy with 60MP but he
wanted more, he wanted to go GIANT. Enter from the right the Phase One
IQ180. All his prayers were answered. From a single capture he could make
the sized prints that really had "the right stuff".

In this exhibition Christian wants to show the detail that is there but
often muffled and confused by lesser cameras. He wanted images that
reflected more than what the eye can see, a hyper reality.

Giant words for a GIANT exhibition..
