Involved in the process was working with 12 other photographers to choose a theme, choose dates, find a venue, promote the exhibition, organise an opening night, not to mention choose our own images, get them printed and mounted. A lot of work was put in by all, and it really paid off.
The exhibition has been well attended, and well received. People enjoyed the diversity of the group and the quality of the images. From the Group’s point of view, we have learned quite a lot about mounting an exhibition and what’s involved.
On a personal level, my confidence has been boosted by how people received my images of the Museum of Civilization. I have had some interest in people wanting to buy any or all of my prints.
As an artist, it is sometimes hard to know how people will react to your work. However, I am always interested in what others see in my work. The diversity of comments I received were really quite revealing. How my photos speak to others varies radically from person to person.
I have the exhibition bug, and want to see how I can be part of future exhibitions.
The London Independent Photography Central Group’s exhibition has been extended and now runs until the 25th November. It is at the Mile End Art Pavilion.
