Choose a Photo: Photography Exhibition

Including another two photos for you to choose from for the next photography exhibition.

Should I include abstract images in this exhibition or not? Why?

Chefchaouen, Morocco, Africa, Manhattan, New York, North America

For the past seven weeks, I have taken a rest from writing Indonesian travel articles and instead, asking everyone to help choose images for my photography exhibition.

Your comments have been very helpful but I also find it interesting the reason why a person chooses one photo over another.

Image Earth Faces was the last photography exhibition in 2018 pre-COVID and hosted by the beautiful Erika from Piano B – Event Project Management. The stunning medieval Palazzo Sersale in the village of Cerisano, Calabria in Southern Italy, is a superb venue for any function but especially for an exhibition. The world has changed so much since 2018 with travel only a distant memory.

Organising a new portfolio for an exhibition is tough but there is also a lot to organise. It will be helpful if you comment your thoughts on some of the following decisions that I need to make…

Choose a theme

  • Street?
  • Portrait?
  • Landscape?
  • Candid?
  • Urban exploration?
  • Abstract and Conceptual
  • Street art?
  • Travel?
  • Castles?
  • Country or continent?
  • Social issues?

Choose a Medium

  • Black & White?
  • Colour?
  • Frames? Frameless glass?
  • Canvas?
  • Acrylic?
  • Foamboard?

Choose more

  • Number of photos?
  • Size of photos to exhibit?
  • Orientation (landscape or portrait)?

The next two photos for you to choose from as I am still not decided on B&W photos, colour, or both. If you missed the previous photos from which to choose, check out these links:

Please help me choose one of the following photos to include in the exhibition and let me know why you decided on that photo. Your choice printed on canvas, framed, glass, other?

Chefchaouen, Morocco, Africa
Chefchaouen, Morocco – Photo 1
Manhattan, New York, North America
Manhattan, New York – Photo 2

Feel free to check out more of my work on Nilla’s Photography or Image Earth Travel and help me decide.

Appreciate all of your help!

    the Chefchaouen one for the colours. abstract is good and you could include it depending on the theme of your exhibition xx

      Thanks Gill! This is the problem, I can’t decide on a theme for the exhibition and the reason I’m asking for feedback. 😉 x

    If you like abstract, do include some. Part of your diverse talents.
    I would chose Manhattan… (Wonder why?)

      Thank you for your great feedback!
      I usually throw in a bit of everything in an exhibition but the experts tell me this isn’t the way to do it…ah well, I’ve never conformed so not about to start now. 😉
      A large canvas of the Manhattan cube is hanging in my bedroom as really love the strong colour – no post-production, this is what it looks like on the inside. Have you seen this sculpture?

        Clients used to call me “the expert”. And I told them I was no expert, if experts really knew anything the world would be a much better place. 😉 Don’t trust the experts…
        I “missed” the cube. Never seen it. (Need to gp back to New York!) 🤣
        Be good…

        Ha, ha, I don’t believe in the term “experts” as every expert that I’ve met has been far from an expert and more like a pretend “expert”. 🤣
        Bummer, but a good reason to return to NY.
        Always good… 😉

        My point exactly. All “experts” I’ve ever met were a disaster…
        How’s the virus situation in OZ? Be careful. 🙏🏻🌹

        We agree!
        Not great as you’ve probably heard – our powers that be decided to copy the UK/EU and that’s work well so we’re finding ourselves in the same boat as the rest of the world. We were doing well until the politics started to take precedent – an election looming.
        How are things there? I’m triple vaxxed now and hoping that the medical profession has got things right. We had a few cases at work but luckily, I was WFH and not in the office at the time.
        Thank you – hope that you and your family stay safe also. 🙂

        We need to get rid of politicos the world over. Or re-train them… Something has got to be done. They’re absolutely hopeless. (And believe me I’m not a radical anarchist…)
        Triple vaxxed too. But the new variant seems to “not care” at all. At least, vaccination does seem to lessen the effects of the bloody virus. You can still catch it but it should be “less strong”. At any rate, one should keep as much distance as possible. We just had two virus scares in the family, daughter #2 a contact, but came out negative. And son-in-law (MD!!) with a false positive… End-of-year family reunion suspended by a thread for a few days…
        Fa molta attenzione amica mía… 🙏🏻😷

        Totally agree and perhaps it’s time for a global revolution to flush out/purge the useless vultures that don’t think about the people but just line their pockets.
        Yes, that’s what I’m hearing also and if we catch it and can stay out of the hospital system then this leaves room for critical patients, but not all think like us, Brian.
        Sorry to hear it’s getting too close but happy that they’re OK.
        Sì, lo so e ci provo, ma anche tu amico mio… 😷

        One day at a time… ✊🏻

        Indeed… 😉

    The Moroccan photo … it’s probably the multiple colours that attracts me (and looking closer to see what exactly it is …)

      Happy New Year! 🙂
      Thank you for the great feedback!
      I’m still in two minds about whether to add abstract or not.

      1. wetanddustyroads Avatar

        Happy New Year to you too 🎉.
        Abstract is a difficult form of art (for me) to understand … but it does make you look twice at a photo/art and my common sense tells me if you look twice, it’s definitely interesting!

      2. Image Earth Travel Avatar

        Ha, ha, that’s quite interesting but strangely, I know what you mean. 😉
