120X120

Save The Date! 120×120 Exhibition is happening on 14 – 16 May.

Armed with a passion to build interest in and expand the analogue photography community in Singapore, local photography collective OKB.sg is organising the 120×120 exhibition on 120 medium format photography to celebrate the 120th anniversary of the film format, since its inception in 1901.

The medium format was invented by Kodak while film photography was at its peak in 1901, and is still used in film photography today. As such, the 120X120 exhibition is conceptualised to re-introduce this format with exposure and education in mind, with an aim to reconnect it with photo enthusiasts and photographers alike. Together, we are pleased to celebrate the medium format’s 120th anniversary by featuring a collection of medium format photographs from all walks of life.
