Solo Exhibition - Need a Name for the Exhibition
Hi apugger colleagues,
I'm working on a solo exhibition in April 2008 and need a title for the exhibition. I'd like to call on my APUG friends to please help me name the exhibition.
Genre: Portraits and Environmental Portraiture
Medium: Black & White Photography
Sample of my work: http://www.nicoleboenigmcgrade.com
Type of work displayed: Portraits predominantly of Australian children, lifestyle; also the older community; thoughtful; quirky; strength; vunerable; honest; soulful...
Pretty much an array of emotions.
I hope to bring some of this work to the Foto 3 conference in Colorado in 2008.
If you have any ideas.... I'd love to hear them. I'll keep you posted with the final choice.

OK, a few ideas off the top of my head based on the weight of the subject matter:
"Spare the Rod" (and spoil the child!)
"Patience" (an essential quality to have when dealing with children)
"Children of the Light" (a bit of an obvious photographic connection but also perhaps to the light they may shine etc.)
"Now Hear This" (a reference to giving children a voice)
"Seen and Heard" (as above and a contradiction of the children should be seen and not heard maxim)
"The Least of These" (a biblical reference referring to what Jesus said about the importance of children)
"Past and Futures" (incorporates the older community)
Good luck with this. Not an easy job, trying to distill an exhibition into a few pithy words which captures your feeling and vision. I'm sure you'll come up with your own fine title eventually!
"A Place at the Table"
"All of Us"
"Friends and Neighbors"
It's not easy sometimes. You don't want to sound smarmy or cheesy, but....
IVe been struggling with a title for my work, too Nicole!! I'm not sure I can help much, but I will give it some thought.

kind of fun to just make word associations...
I'd just leave it Soul, leave a bit of ambiguity and have the viewers guessing.
