You know when people say they have to write something down to realise it has actually happened… last couple of weeks have been quite surreal, I don’t even think writing helps me realise what is happening… My Exhibition Opening night, the talks with visitors, the meetings with the models behind the portrayers, the talks with […]Read more "Exhibition Opening, work in progress"
Ichtys – The Fisherman’s Daughter – Exhibition Research time I never thought how much preparation may be required to make an exhibition happen before I started organising one… The choice of location and venue is maybe one of your most important decisions that would define the success of your exhibition. Of course there are several things […]Read more "How to Prepare a Photo Exhibition"
