Exhibition Opening!

A very successful opening with the Sheriff of Nottingham...

Sunday, 8 March 2009


Above is my display at the exhibition.  I am happy with it, i was trying to decide if it would be better just stuck on the wall, it was annoying me that they weren't straight and that the portraits kept on slipping so that it wasn't level.  It may have been smarter if it was on the wall but i think that it fitted well within the market displayed as it is.  I liked that people could walk around it and i was a lot happier with it once we opened up the other shutter and rearranged the space a bit as i feel it all worked better together. 


When my final images were chosen as far as i was concerned i had broadly 2 options for the display...
1. To frame or mount the images and put them on the wall, either in a long line or 2 rows of 3.
2.  The market had the right ceilings for us to suspend the work ad have it floating.

I decided on the second option because i think it added another dimension to the piece.  I made structures so the each set of three was clamped in a triangle shape and then suspended at head height.  This means that the viewer can walk around the images, interact with it and experience the different sides a person can have.

Photos to follow shortly....

Help Needed-Second Set of Images

My second set of images will consist of the stereotypes mixed up with locations.  However i am struggling to cut it down to one images from each, I have an idea of which ones to pick but it would be good to get other peoples opinions.  There are more on the flickr as well (link on the side of my blog) if you think none of these are suitable.  In the set i am going to have one image of the hippy, one of the goth and one of the chav.  This is the set that i may alter after my shoot on tuesday.
So, i am going to number the images and if people could put their favourites in the comments section that would be extremely helpful! It will either clarify my initial thoughts or throw in some other interesting ideas!




Final Images

So for the exhibition i am going to produce two sets of images, one set of 3 and one set of either 3 or 4.  I still have one shoot left to do so i may need to add in those photos.  I have come up with a few quite different options for displaying these two sets of images but all with be revealed at a later stage...!
The first set of images will be three that i took in my garden (see below) if anyone thinks there are others on my flickr that would be better please say!
