“Paris: A Journey on Film” Show Opening at The District Gallery

Hey friends! I’m so excited to share the news that my film photos from Paris have been seen, curated & selected as a Gallery Show at The District Gallery in Knoxville, TN. Sweet!!! I can’t tell you how excited for Paris: A Journey on Film to be featured in such a wonderful local gallery. Here’s the deal, I’ve never done anything like this before. Yikes. I’ve had work featured in Museums for shows but this is a full gallery based on my work. Admittedly, I’m nervously excited. And, I want to make sure that you come celebrate with me for the Opening Night party on Friday, October 11, from 5:30-9pm. The kick-off party & show will be held at The District Gallery, 5113 Kingston Pike, Knoxville, TN. We’ll have food, drink, music & beautiful images displayed. I’m working with some fantastic folks to help bring new substrates to life featuring some of the photos. And of course, the pieces can be purchased & there will be prints available for all price ranges. But most of all, I would genuinely love you just to be there & help me celebrate. I’m inviting all of my favorite people & hope you’ll be able to come. It won’t be the same without you! And oh yes, invite your friends!

From the Press Release:

“The District Gallery is pleased to present a photographic journey through Paris as seen through the lens of photographer Ben Finch. PARIS: A Journey on Film features classic scenes of Paris and modern views of iconic landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre. Finch also captures common details of everyday French culture and turns them into memorable images with his timeless aesthetic and traditional film photography.

According to Finch, “Film feels genuine, and in this digital age of editing it’s refreshing to revert back to the way pros photographed years ago. Film challenges you to capture the right natural elements since there’s not much of an option to edit.” He says not only is the show about the photographs but also the substrates his images are printed on. Photos will be displayed on wood, metal and burlap.

Award-winning photographer Ben Finch, owner of Finch Photography, has grown locally and internationally, with photo sessions in Paris and Mexico just this year. He was recently named one of Knoxville’s top photographers and has won multiple ADDY Awards. Finch has been featured in At Home Tennessee magazine as well as on WBIR’s “Your Stories” with Abby Ham. He specializes in editorial, commercial, wedding and lifestyle photography and is based in Athens, TN.”

The gallery will be held at The District Gallery // 5113 Kingston Pike | Knoxville, TN 37919 | (865) 200-4452 | www.TheDistrictGallery.com [For more information contact Cinamon Airhart at cinamon@thedistrictgallery.com ]

Paris Fine Art Prints


Bonjour. Ladies & Gentlemen, I bring you “Paris: A Journey on Film,” a collection of Paris Fine Art Prints I photographed while visiting earlier this year. All of the photographs were shot on Medium Format Film, Kodak Portra 400/800 & Ilford HP5/Delta 3200, on my Contax 645. I chose to shoot film to give the images a more classic, nostalgic feeling which I associate with the beautiful city of Paris. Plus, it was a personal challenge & I love the delayed gratification that comes when taking a photo & waiting weeks before I know how it turned out. As a result, I’m extremely pleased.

We currently have a Gallery show lined up for later this year in Knoxville where featured prints & pieces will be displayed (more details to come). As well, we just sent our first design draft of an 8.5″x8.5″ softcover book to the printers & if it is up to par, we’ll be releasing the product in the next month or two. In the meantime, enjoy looking through the blog gallery & pick out a few of your favorites. I’m daily adding to an online print ordering gallery, http://finchphoto.bigcartel.com/, where you can purchase prints up to a size 13×19. All prints are archival grade pieces that we carefully look over to ensure they look as we intend. I set a lower price so that we could get more prints into people’s hands. I’d be honored for you to purchase a piece of this collection for your home, office, or as a gift. Larger prints & additional product options are available by emailing me info[at]finchphoto.com. Enjoy, au revoir.
