#6 days until the #exhibition 'Living with #PTSD' opens in #Leicester ...

It's hard to believe that work on this exhibition started nearly seven years ago.  It started with tendrils of smoke floating up to the ether as the pipe dream began ... slowly taking shape, gathering support and momentum ... and it's now at the stage where the work load - carefully managed ... is almost complete in terms of preparation.

The canvases have been printed and stretched and are looking good.  Many thanks to the staff at Grange Print for all their help with that.

Stella Couloutbanis, my project manager, has been working hard at securing other venues for the exhibition as well as helping me with lots of other bits and pieces to ensure I don't get over-stressed.  We finished attaching mirror plates to the last four prints last night!

The poetry boards and captions have been printed and mounted and are looking just right.  All credit to Ian Robinson Design for that. You can email him on ianrobinsondesign (at) tiscali.co.uk if you have titling, or caption needs.

Literature wise, I have today finished uploading the kindle version of the book accompanying the exhibition:  Living with PTSD - Journey of a Veteran.

I'm only getting 25 copies of the paperback in stock ... and I'm hoping that most of them will go on the opening night.  Other copies will be available from Amazon and all good book shops.  The Paperback ISBN: 978-0-9564885-4-1 and costs £9.99.  The title contains all the poetry and photographs used in this exhibition.  Many thanks to the staff at Lightning Source and Nielsen Book Data for pulling out the stops and getting the title ready in time for the opening night.

If you'd like to reserve one of the 25 copies please drop me a line on Facebook or email me (wolf (at) wolf-photography.com).

I've literally just finished chasing up all the agencies that will be having a presence at the exhibition.  So various leaflets for Veterans and civilians regarding PTSD will be available, as will booklets about the basics of Intellectual Property rights.

I've also liaised with Ian Davies at the Leicester Peoples' Photographic Gallery re Thursday and all systems are go for putting up the various partitions that we need to structure the layout for this exhibition.

I guess that's it for the exhibition update for now.

All the best,

Villayat 'Wolf' Sunkmanitu
