It's been a very long time since I exhibited my photographs. I'm really looking forward to seeing them up on the wall next year.
I find it strange that the majority of photographers do not print their work. It is one of the greatest joys of doing what I do, to see my work in hard-copy. The image is transformed from something that is abstract into something that is concrete. It exists and I can hold it in my hands. But it's also more than this: printed images have a finesse and attention to detail that is completely missing on a computer monitor. This is one of the reasons why I love beautifully printed photographic monographs.
Doing an exhibition can also be food for the soul. I've found on the other occasions when I set up an exhibition that the whole experience gave me a few things back. Firstly there was a sense of completion. I feel images aren't really ever finished until they are printed, matted and framed. Secondly, matting enhances the impression of the work - it gives it a setting in which to be shown and lastly, once the images have been framed, they take on an air of being more than a photographic print. The presentation of how you put your work together is vital in showcasing your work. I find this part of the process very absorbing.
My exhibition next year will have around 28 prints on display from my visits to Hokkaido Japan, the Bolivian Altiplano, Patagonia and also Iceland.
