Hasselblad Masters Winners Tour 2012 is a Globetrotting Triumph
16/11/2012 Photographers and devotees of image capture at the very highest level are turning out in their droves on two continents to see for themselves exactly what it takes to become a Hasselblad Master.
The first two Masters Winners Tour events, held recently in Tokyo and New York City (check out our event videos below or directly on htv.hasselblad.com) were packed with hundreds of photo-enthusiasts, who made the trip to meet a Master or members of the Grand Jury, and witness for themselves the 2012 winners’ images – and the brand new Hasselblad Masters Book Vol. 3 - EVOKE.
Paul Waterworth, Hasselblad’s Global Photographer Relations Manager said: “I have been completely overwhelmed by the buzz and excitement these events are creating – and we’ve still got four more to go. First we have Los Angeles tomorrow (Nov 17) before we notch up our third continent with similar events in Berlin and London, with the tour culminating in Shanghai.”
He added: “The sheer power of these works is incredible. I watched in amazement at photokina where, in the Boulevard of Competitions, people were just mesmerised by the authority of the Hasselblad Masters prints – incredible pictures taken on great cameras and printed on superb media. And the images have the same drawing power everywhere we exhibit them.”
Each (free) event offers attendees a unique opportunity to get their hands on a Hasselblad and to shoot alongside a Master in a studio setting, engage in a seminar experience and indulge in a social evening event.
Are you in LA tomorrow? (Nov 17) You can still try and get access to the Smash Box Studios venue.
