No worries - I've checked with the security at Teochew building and they have assured me that they are opened on Sundays and public holidays too :) :) Anyway, I'm glad so many of you enjoyed the exhibition and I hope the next time around it'll be even better :)

There is some room for improvement. I was quite saddened at how many prints were damaged due to careless handling - dirt, scratches, creases, and even marks from writing with a hard ballpoint pen (using the soft gelatin surface of the photo paper as a "desk mat"). I'm not sure who is responsible for this, but I noticed similar problems at other photo exhibitions at Ngee Ann Kongsi (NAPE 2006 & 2007) before.

The effort to promote photography as an art would be more credible if the photographs would be treated with the care and respect commonly afforded to art objects. I pity those who contributed their photographs in good faith - to them it must feel like a slap in the face.

Hmm... maybe you can point those pictures that were damaged to the organiser?

I noticed some of the damage too and regret the damage. But alot of the the photos were very old prints contributed by the photographers and some of them were in the condition that it were when we received them. But we will take note and strive to do better in future exhibitions.
