    The exhibition looks so beautiful! I love the setup, the contrast and the purity of the space behind your photos.

    Full disclosure, I’ve never actually been to a gallery before, but this definitely inspires me to check one out someday 🙂

    Congratulations on your first exhibition. It has been good to follow your progress through the blog and hear of the highs and lows that you went through. In my past experience of art exhibitions it is not uncommon to sell little to no works when you are starting out however as you mentioned the contacts and response from those attending is worth a considerable amount. Becoming known is the hardest part after which making sales becomes that much easier. Your photographs are stunning so I’m sure greater success is just around the corner. Good luck with your new career as a full time photographer.
