After the excitement of the Saturday before last – giving my talk to a packed audience and seeing piles of people inside the gallery space – I wanted to walk around my exhibition on my own.
So one day last week I slipped in and had a quiet stroll around the room with just a few other people around.
It’s completely surreal to see everyone we met and photographed around the world, up there on the walls – or in the case of Sultana (the Bangladeshi beauty from Jamaica, Queens, NY) standing proud outside the Museum of Sydney (the image below).
I only wish I could let her, and everyone else in the exhibition, know.
For those who won’t be able to make it to the exhibition before it ends (November 24), I took some pics inside the gallery space …
As with the first exhibition of my Sydney based project, there’s an extra AV component, showing another 100 or so images that aren’t on the wall with an accompanying voice-over, as well as some video I shot. You can just see it through the number 5 below.
And attention all Kickstarter crowdfunding supporters – remember as part of your Reward, I said I’d include your names in the exhibition? Well, here they are, in the panel below – the first thing people see before they take a walk around the gallery.
By the way, I’ve had several emails asking me if prints are for sale. The answer is, yes, they are. I’m in the process of setting up an ordering system on the blog and hopefully it’ll be done within a week or so. If you can’t wait, please just email me directly and I’ll organise it. The choices will be – various sizes, printed on cotton rag (beautiful) or photographic paper, and framed or unframed.
The book will also be available for pre-order on the blog too.
Okay, that’s it for now. Speak soon.
