Choose an Exhibition Photo

Another two images for you to choose from for the next photography exhibition…

Let me know your reason for choosing the photo as I’m always interested in why one image is chosen over another.

Photographic exhibition, Braşov, Romania, Rome, Italy, Europe

Due to COVID over the last couple of years, I’m noticing loads of virtual exhibitions but have to say that I never attended an online exhibition. For me, it’s making the effort but also the experience of going to a museum or an art space to fully immerse myself in the exhibition. I’m not a great fan of virtual exhibitions although I understand why these have emerged. Over to you, virtual or in person and why?

With my last Image Earth Faces exhibition, I was lucky enough to have been invited to exhibit my work in the stunning medieval Palazzo Sersale in the quaint village of Cerisano in Calabria, southern Italy. The beautiful and vivacious Erika from Piano B – Event Project Management gave me the opportunity to exhibit my work and curated this memorable event in 2018.

There’s always so much to think about when holding an exhibition and it can be quite stressful, especially the first time. Organising exhibitions get a little easier the more you hold, but the fact that your work is out there for scrutiny and criticism by everyone while you’re present during that feedback can be a little daunting. Artists never really know how their work will be received.

Some of the choices to be made are included in this list, so let me know your thoughts…

A theme

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

A Medium

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

Extra decisions

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

    1. Thank you for the great feedback. Actually, they’re both Ilford but I just forgot to include that, edited that now.
      As you know, I don’t like to muck around with my photos so give my audience an image of what I saw. I didn’t even crop the guy at left out of the photo as thought that added perhaps to the girl’s intense look. A story/perspective that it could have been someone leaving her/saying goodbye? 😉

    2. First one. The black Lady. (So pleased someone is still using Ilford. It was magic to me)
      Story? Every picture is a story. Most don’t see it, but some do. Remember Blow-up?


    3. Well, you know me, I love film and especially Ilford…must dust off one of my 35mm film cameras.
      A great cult movie. I have the movie poster but I only saw the movie about 10 years ago – loved it!

  1. For me I think the Rome photo as I like the stark contrast of dark/light and I love the detail in the woman’s hair and her lovely and soulful face. Though I do also like the patterns in the old lady’s clothes.

Love hearing from you!
