Better late than never but last weekend I had the pleasure of heading up to the Seoul Photo & Imaging Show to check out the first exhibition comprised of expats living here in Korea. It was all made possible by the hard work of Dylan Goldby. I am grateful for his hard work and friendship and being one of the lucky 50 photographers selected to be a part of this show.
If you are not familiar with the “P&I” show it is the largest photography exhibitions in Korea. I have blogged about it before but this was the first time that I was actually a part of it. Typically this show has (in my opinion) 4 parts: the gear, the girls, the geeks and the galleries. The biggest draw is usually the first 2 “g’s” as dudes from around the country come to oggle the gear and take pictures of the girls holding the gear. Geeks like myself usually stick to the gear and the galleries.
At any rate, for me the biggest draw up to Seoul was getting a chance to meet a lot of the people that I have been talking to over the internet for years. I think that the overall feeling was that we all sort of knew each other but not the face. It was strange meeting so many people that I have followed and chatted with for so long and finally met in person. It was a really good time and I am happy that I got up there.

Here are a few more shots from the meet up
