"Print' is an installation by Orlando photographer David Lawrence. He along with a team of skilled creatives will be setting up a pop up photo studio for anyone to come, sit for a professional portrait, and leave with a print of themselves in hand.
This will be David’s Second Year at “Immerse”. Last year across 2 days, he photographed just over 300 people at his pop up studio!
"I believe that print is dying. Less and less are the days of seeing a photo of yourself off of a screen or pictures of your loved ones in an old photo album. My hope is that people will hold a print of themselves in their hands, see how beautiful print can be, and be inspired to begin creating and capturing moments that can live off of screens for years to come."
Simultaneously Lawrence will be displaying images he has captured of loved ones on a gallery wall next to the studio. We will print a second copy of each new image captured in the studio and add it to the gallery wall.
Similar to last year, over the course of two days we will build a print gallery of 100's of individual portraits of people from all across the city. The goal this year will be to make the installation bigger than last year, photographing at least 400 people.
This ideally will be a semi permanent installation that can be left up and looked at after “Immerse”.
To cover the time of everyone involved and the physical cost of this installation, we need some help. Altogether we will need about $3,500.00
