Re: Exhibition Space for Photography
Interesting mix of survey replies that I have received in last 2 days.
Established photographer - willing to pay for exhibition venue & commission rental
Emerging photographer - willing to accept commission cut and minimum venue rental
Amateur - not willing to pay for rent and hesitate on commission cut , and on top of it some does not have enough quality work to fill a wall space.
Underlying is most photographers are not prepared to sell their works as art.
There is difference between selling an end "product" as art as compared to sell as "image".... It seems to be either lack of the knowledge, lack of time, lack of committment etc....
What do you think? Have you been through any of the situations above?
