Vinet Exhibit Report! - Xoanon @ 15:26 PST
Lotho Sackville-Baggins writes: We went to the last day of the Pierre Vinet exhibit in Santa Monica today (Saturday 19th) & I just wanted to share with you how truly wonderful it was.

Mr. Vinet was there himself, autographing postcards of his image of Ian McKellen as Gandalf. These photos were far more than was on exhibit at Casa Loma. There was a large room full of color shots and a smaller room of the black and white portrait shots. The color images were wonderful - rich saturated color - greens that were so vivid, rich earth colors, just wonderful. You could almost smell the landscape.

Mr. Vinet was so friendly! What a wonderful man. It is hoped that there might be a catalog of his works - but nothing is definite yet. I hope all Los Angeles fans made the effort to visit the gallery - it was really something special.
