Valhalla, N.Y., – Starting October 17-20, FUJIFILM North America Corporation will host the first 2018 FUJIFILM Print Life Photo Exhibition in Vanderbilt Hall, at Grand Central Terminal. This is the first time in the U.S. that thousands of people had the opportunity to upload their images to the FUJIFILM Print Life Photo Exhibition website, during a nationwide photo exhibition call for entries that took place from July-August, 2018. Fujifilm believes that every photo is print-worthy and the exhibition will include over 13,000 pictures.
This effort is based on the “PHOTO IS 50,000-person Photo Exhibition" which was introduced in Japan in 2006 and has grown every year into what is now Japan’s largest photo exhibit. This success has led to a global initiative that included the United States, Canada, Europe, Thailand and Malaysia.
“In the US, there are billions of photos taken every day and unlike the film photography era, images are shared through social media quickly and easily instead of being printed,” said Ken Sugiyama, President of FUJIFILM Holdings America Corporation and President and CEO of FUJIFILM North America Corporation. “Fujifilm strongly believes in the power of the printed picture. The 13,600 printed photos that will be on display carry the power to tell a story of their own. They are different from photos taken by professional photographers, but are personal and beautiful their own way.”
