Photo for a Photography Exhibition

Would love your input to help me choose between these two photos for the next photography exhibition…

Back to candid photos as I love this medium.

photography exhibition, Venice, Italy, Europe, Marrakech, Morocco, Africa

The past eight weeks have included photos for you to choose from as I’m taking a rest from writing Indonesian travel articles. Your feedback has been very helpful but I also find it intriguing why someone chooses one photo over another.

Have you been to a photography exhibition since COVID struck? If so, what drew you to that particular exhibition?

Image Earth Faces was the last photography exhibition in 2018 pre-COVID and hosted by the beautiful Erika from Piano B โ€“ 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)?

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?

Photo 1: Marrakech, Morocco (Ilford 35mm B&W film)
Venice, Italy, Europe
Photo 2: Venice, Italy (Ilford 35mm B&W film)

You can see more of my work at Nillaโ€™s Photography or Image Earth Travel and help me decide.

Appreciate any help!

    1. Hi
      Art is so subjective, isn’t it?
      This child was playing hide and seek with his friends in Venice’s alleyways when I stumbled across him to take this photo. So in this instance, the photo isn’t a sad one, but the chile was definitely intense while counting… ๐Ÿ˜‰
      Thank you for your comment.


    1. I know! I’m following you but still don’t receive your notifications – very annoying and frustrating! WP tells me I need to advise my followers to re-follow. People should only have to do this once but WP is going down the FB route, so here we are…
      Thank you! I have this one on my wall in the lounge room. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. I love the hide and seek photo, a fun nostalgic childhood memory. It was also a good one to have younger siblings stay put so we could escape from them ๐Ÿ˜‰ As you know, I enjoy your black and white photography. Have fun with the photo exhibition.


    1. Hi Suzanne
      Love to hear from you and thank you for the great feedback. I think using 35mm B&W film for this shot was the right medium and I actually have this one handing on my lounge room wall. ๐Ÿ˜‰
      Not sure when it will be with Omicron ruling our lives but we have to hope and prepare.
      Hope things are manageable with you.


    1. Thank you for the feedback!
      This local was a cloth maker sitting quietly in one of the back streets on the way to Jemaa el-Fna square. Quite an intriguing scene so took the photo with my 35mm film camera, which was loaded with Ilford B&W film at the time. ๐Ÿ˜‰


    1. Thank you, Rebecca!
      Wandering the streets of Venice, turned the corner to this scene so had to take the shot and only had my 35mm film camera in my hand at the time as the DSLR was around my next.
      Your continual feedback and support, definitely helping. ๐Ÿ™‚
