Exhibition at the Mall Galleries

100_0576


For some reason I never posted again about this photography blog entry, in which I announced that I had been shortlisted as a finalist in the Currys Our Lives Digital Photography Competition 2008.

My shortlisted photograph was to be exhibited in The Mall Galleries near Trafalgar Square in London, and I was invited to a presentation evening there.

It was so so exciting! The photograph which had been shortlisted and was on display was Graffiti Artist At Work With Tools:

The other photographs were fantastic, there were some really inspiring and stunning works, and I felt proud to be a part of that. The competition had received 10,000 entries, so to be part of the 100 or so which had been chosen felt incredible.

And seeing my work on those walls, with people looking at and enjoying it, was something I can't describe. The whole thing - free champagne, celeb guest, talking to the other photographers, being in London even, was a great experience.

Going down there for the weekend also meant many London photo opportunities! We were unashamedly touristy, so many of them were taken from an open-top bus, but it was all good fun and I'm keen to go back down to take some floor-level pics too!

Since the exhibition, I have been acutely aware of mentions of The Mall Galleries. Firstly that they are almost always referred to as "the prestigious Mall Galleries". Secondly, I was watching Dragons' Den one night and a sculptor, Guy Portelli, who extracted £80,000 from them, had bid for the money in order to fund an exhibition at the prestigious Mall Galleries!

So, here's to art, photography, and prestige ;-)

Well, there's nothing nicer for an artist than seeing the public experiencing his work. I bet you feel proud of yourself. congratulations. I'd like to participate in the next contest.
