NEW LIMITED EDITION PRINT BY JOHN SEXTON
I am pleased to announce a new Limited Edition print of a favorite image, Lower Cascade, Roaring Fork River, near Aspen, Colorado. This photograph accompanied Arthur Ollman's foreword in my book Recollections. I enjoyed the challenge of printing this negative when making the print for the reproduction in the book, and have included the print in two museum exhibitions, but have never offered the print for sale – until now. I enjoy the intimate feeling of this smaller – rather than larger – reproduction in Recollections, and decided to offer this Limited Edition print in 8x10" size to maintain that intimacy.
The print, shown below, is offered in a Limited Edition of 100 signed and numbered silver gelatin prints, plus 10 Artist's Proofs. When the edition is sold out no further prints will be made for sale in any size. The introductory price of this Limited Edition print is $800 - a 20% discount off of the normal retail price of an 8x10" Limited Edition print. After June 15, 2016 the retail price for any remaining prints will increase to $1,500, and escalate as the edition sells.

JOHN AND ANNE TWO PERSON MUSEUM EXHIBITION
Anne and I are excited to share our first two-person museum exhibition this coming fall at the Longview Museum of Fine Arts in Longview, Texas. The exhibition, Inspired by Light: The Photographs of John Sexton & Anne Larsen, will be on display from Saturday, October 15, 2016 through Saturday, December 17, 2016. We will both be attending a series of special events related to the exhibition on the weekend of Saturday and Sunday, November 12th and 13th. We will be presenting an all-day seminar, Exploring the Expressive Print, on Saturday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. The seminar, which is limited to thirty participants, will offer instruction in both the aesthetics and technical considerations in making expressive photographs. It will include a digital slide presentation and a showing of prints, as well as a walk through of the exhibition and a question and answer session with both Anne and me. The fee for the all day seminar is $179 per student, which includes a catered lunch at the museum. Since space is limited, early enrollment is advised. The last time we offered a similar seminar together it sold out very quickly.
On Sunday, November 13, I will be presenting an illustrated slide lecture from 2:00 to 3:30 at the museum, which will be followed by a reception in the galeries until 5:30 pm. We hope to see some old friends as well as making new friends in the great state of Texas. You can download an application form for the all-day seminar here: LMFA Invite and application form
The Longview Museum of Fine Arts staff has been great to work with. They are dedicated to making the exhibition as beautiful as possible. We have worked closely with them on the lighting of the prints, as well as the wall colors. We are busy now making prints, and are planning to include some never-before-exhibited photographs from both of us.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR USERS OF 120 FORMAT KODAK PROFESSIONAL FILMS- PLEASE READ
As many readers are likely aware, I have used Kodak Professional film continuously for more than four decades. Over the years I have found Kodak film to be of the highest possible quality and consistency. However, anomalies can occur from time to time. There have been recent reports that appear to be associated with certain batches of 120 format Kodak Professional film.
The problem can easily be seen in the photograph below recently made by William Wetmore. I appreciate William allowing me to share this example with readers. You will notice the word Kodak clearly appears in the sky, along with frame number '13' multiple times. I first became aware of this situation a few months ago when a former workshop participant brought some online discussions on this topic to my attention. Unfortunately, as time has passed, I have encountered a number of students, colleagues, and friends who have experienced this exact problem.

LEXUS - ANSEL ADAMS: CHASING LIGHT VIDEO FEATURING JOHN SEXTON
NOMINATED AS FINALIST IN DIGIDAY VIDEO AWARDS
Exactly one year ago Anne and I were in Lone Pine working with a young and energetic production crew from The Enthusiasts Network (TEN), on a video for Lexus. The production, undertaken with the cooperation of The Ansel Adams Publishing Rights Trust, culminated in a 13-minute video: Chasing Light – Inspired by Ansel Adams.
Lexus Vehicles at Ansel Adams' Winter Sunrise Location
Well, the video has just been nominated as a finalist in the prestigious Digiday Video Awards in the “Best Video Design - Consumer” category. I was pleased to be a part of the production, and Anne and I thought the final result was excellent. We are thrilled for the hard working production team at TEN, and have many fond memories from the intense week we spent with them visiting photographic locations around California. Our days regularly began at 4:00 am (ugh!!!) and on occasion we were still rigging or driving after midnight! It was hard work, but we had fun!
You can read in greater detail about the project in last year’s eNewsletter here.
If you haven’t already seen it, I hope you will watch the video here.
By the way... those Lexus SUV’s are very comfortable! It was the fist time I had experienced air-conditioned seats in a vehicle (aka bun chillers!). I hope you enjoy the video, and I am sure you will learn a thing or two about Ansel that you might not already know through the insightful comments of William Turnage, the Managing Trustee of the Ansel Adams Publishing Rights Trust.
Sexton is frequently conducting lectures, seminars and book signings.
