Im not really new to apug, ive been reading and occasionally writing for about a year now. But i felt it was about time i shared a little and now i have something to share. Yesterday was the opening of my first solo exhibition. It is a group of twenty photographs, 9 black and white and 11 color (all are analogue prints except two of the color ones, and all except three were printed by myself). The website is http://www.gallery-now.com (click 'exhibition now' on the left) I just wanted to say that it was thrilling to see my photos in a gallery. I was amazed at how good it felt. i know i love photography, but there is something very special about seeing your prints in hanging on a wall. The other interesting thing that i had not considered before the show was how exciting it was to see complete strangers looking at and being interesting in my work. I know that this is what happens on the web as well, but something very important is missing from it. The show is in Seoul, Korea. Ive been living here and teaching english for the last year and a half. I came here after i graduated from university looking for a creative spark. i basically using teaching as a means of funding my photography. By the way, this site has helped immensely with my work, i order raw chemicals, mostly, and would not be able to use them without this site. So Thanks!
