Blue Moon Camera and Machine celebrates our sixteenth anniversary with a presentation of our Fifteenth Annual Customer Show. As one of the last optical printing labs in the country, Blue Moon Camera handles film from thousands of photographers around the globe throughout the year. Tens of thousands of images pass through the lab – some destined for the walls of a gallery, others for an esteemed place on the refrigerator.
Regardless of what our customers do with them afterward, each photo that comes through the lab is, at one point or another, held in the hands of a staff member and looked at. We count the prints, check for dust, and make sure that they reach our standards of quality. We also, occasionally, stop. We hold a print in our hands that makes us feel something and we stop. It may be especially creative, it may be a perfect execution of technique, it may be touching, profound, or just plain lovely. When this happens, the staff member brings this stop-inducing photo around to the rest of the staff to share the experience, and, if the majority approves and the photographer gives their blessing, it is selected for the Blue Moon Camera Customer Show.
We’re always excited for this show as it is an opportunity to exhibit the work of our incredibly talented customer-base. It’s also an opportunity for a unique community of creatives to get together and have a fantastic time.
We hope to see you all there, dressed in your finest, ready to get into some shenanigans with the Blue Moon Camera Crew.
