Advertisement for Myself

 

On 11/1/2018 I walked through my neighborhood and shot 301 photographs of sidewalks and pavement, to create a body of work for exhibition.

 

I was curious how the pictures would look when matted and framed, so I made a paper mockup and taped it to the wall. The image came out of my printer and, considering I used ordinary office paper, it turned out pretty well.

 

The masking tape and the sticky-notes are there to make it arty.

 

Thank you for indulging me.

That is an excellent idea for previewing how a picture might look framed. I hope you will be posting the sidewalk pictures.
Larry Bliss: I might. If they are accepted, I will certainly post them.

Change nothing

It all looks good Larry
Larry Bliss: Unfortunately I don't think a gallery would accept a paper facsimile stuck on they wall with tape.

What a great idea, Larry - I would love to see the exhibition
Larry Bliss: ** If ** it happens, I will send full details. The transatlantic flight would be dear, but the gallery I am considered has good parking. smile
You are funny, Larry. I am sure we would all like a bit of that bliss.
Larry Bliss: For sale cheap! smile
Always nice to know how your photo exhibit will look beforehand, Larry. This mockup gives you a good sense of that. Good luck on being accepted.
Larry Bliss: thanks, Beverly. I think it's my best work, but the market for photography around here is weak. People mostly want paintings.
i think you put much more effort than i would, Larry. and creative too!
