Now that I’m pretty much finished shooting for the tribal series which I started shooting in July last year, I’ve been thinking about how to go about putting another exhibition on. Is the printed and framed images on a gallery wall the way to go? It’s a very costly way to go and there is absolutely no guarantee of making my money back. I had thought about doing a kickstarter to raise money but there are holes in that plan as well.
It’s all well and good having a lovely opening night in a gallery but 95% of the people who come along are friends and family who aren’t in the photography buying world. So I’m happily taking suggestions on alternatives. People have suggested hanging works in cafes but given my work is nudes I’m not sure that there are many cafes willing to do that.
If you’ve ever seen a creative, outside-the-box way of exhibiting work then please let me know. I’d love to hear some ideas. Unfortunately I am not rich enough to hijack everyone’s phones and get apple to put my work directly onto people’s devices. Shame.
