Bad Reichenhall, Bavaria
Today I managed to hang my prints of the “Forcola” in our adult education centre’s main hall as part of a group exhibition of our local photography class. The venue is the ancient fire brigade’s car hall, with a more than difficult lighting situation as the now glass-equipped doors provide enough light to cause all glossy surfaces to act more as mirrors than to reveal a photograph’s fine nuances and details. But with the square arrangement of my square crops I was quite happy in the end – after the difficult and tedious work of glueing them on foamboards. Should I ever sell such an image, I will happily provide it matted but certainly not mounted on one of those boards. There are too many possibilities for faults, invariably destroying the print as a merchandise.
