Editorial Reviews

Review

"There is a crying need for a business perspective to the contemporary creative arts. My colleagues in the professional world rightly despair at the progressive reduction in confidence and breadth of knowledge of those wishing to enter the world of commerce."
-Geoff Clark, photographer and exhibitor with 40 years' experience

This book is very thorough in it's approach.
Brian M. Stoppee
Sometimes it feels like there is too much information, too much to read, but it is very helpful.

Yet, inside the book there are over 200 pages of quotes.

Format: Paperback
Here's a book aimed at serious photographers. In case you might have made a mistake and thought this book would show you how to display a photograph on your living room wall, it is instead for folks who want to display their photographs in a public venue.

After a general introduction to the subject, the book discusses finding an exhibition space, including a few that might not come readily to mind; planning and research for the exhibition; publicity; preparation for installation; and the actual hanging of the work.

The book is about the logistics of exhibiting and not much about the art, although Read makes suggestions relating to both the preparatory phases and the actual installation that will help in a more artful presentation. My first thought, as I opened the book, was that this was just common sense. However, I've lived long enough to have made a lot of mistakes and as I read along I kept encountering advice that I wished I had had before making some of those mistakes. For example, Read tells you that when it comes to the actual hanging, lay out the installation on the walls completely with pencil, ruler and level before you drive a nail. If I had done that on a particular occasion, I probably wouldn't have ended up taking down a bunch of pictures because my last frame was butted up against a corner. Emphasizing the importance of backwards scheduling in detail might have prevented the pile of advance brochures that arrived the day before the event. It's this kind of nitty-gritty detail that can keep one out of trouble. And of course the advice that, if you cut yourself on the glass for a frame, you should walk away from the framing area immediately to avoid bleeding on the work is a good reminder.

The book covers all the aspect related to exhibiting with a simple language so that it is easy to follow even for amateur or beginners.
Too bad the kindle version had black and white illustrations.

It is not simple to find a book that explain clearly the techniques about organizing an exhibition: this text is well written, clear, and very useful both for photographers, artists and, well, exhibition curators. Worth every dollar you pay, if you are a Fine Art photographer who wants to know how, when and where exhibiting your precious images!

This is a challenging economic time for photographers. Exhibiting is an excellent venue for getting a photographer's work in front of a new audience.

Shirley Read's book surprised me. I thought I was well versed in the topic. However, she and the team of photographers who share their experiences illuminated my insights into photographic exhibition to a far greater scale than I had anticipated.

It's not a book of pretty pictures. I'd term it "text heavy" in a most positive way. This book is very thorough in it's approach. With a variety of voices adding to Shirley's expertise, this book is more than one person's vantage point.

"Exhibiting Photography" stimulates the creative business mind.
