Got yourself a photography exhibition? Here are some tips to make it a success:
Consider Your Images
A photography exhibition is all about your images. Nearly anything can be displayed, but depending on the gallery it may be wise to make sure every photo is suitable for a general audience and is non-offensive.
Think about the space. Are the walls aged with painted brick and cracked plaster?. Or is it a more clinical space. There are may different types of gallery and venue. Which of your prints works best in that space?
If your space is large or small, don’t overcrowd it with too many prints. And don’t have too few prints. Usually one or two rows of prints works best. The number of images you want to display will determine which size of space you book to display them in.
Consider making the images suitable for the venue, or booking a venue that is suitable for your images. A Cafe by Kew Gardens will probably suit different images that a small gallery in Shoreditch. And the audiences will differ too.
