With the launch of Season 5, I believe the Collections of Captured52 now represent one of the largest collections of large format contemporary photography in the world. Certainly, individual photographers working in large format have bodies of work that surpass ours, and museums and institutions have comprehensive photography collections. But from the standpoint of a single stand alone image from each of 52 invited photographers per Season (currently 190 from 42 countries) we’ll represent 260 large format photographs by the end of Season 5.
That’s quite a few photographs exclusive to large format.
Every day, I look for those images that I feel will be especially compelling printed large—a unique portfolio of work that really does represent a global view. And someday, I imagine a warehouse or hanger show with every singe image—now that would be big! And of course, we’d print a coffee table book to accompany the show!
