Photography on the Wall

A huge thank you to Mass Collective for inviting us to join Photography on the Wall on Thursday, an insightful panel discussion alongside Steve Macleod, photographer and director of Metro Imaging.

Exploring the value of exhibiting and printing a photographer’s work in the digital age, and recognising the inherent changes to the physical and virtual ‘wall’, we asked how these physical spaces are still relevant in a digital world.

Key questions were raised on printing process, techniques and what to expect from a professional printing lab; the value of working with a gallery and establishing relationships; what makes photography valuable – limited editions vs open editions; and advice for early-career artists on and pricing work.

In case you missed it, listen to the full discussion below.
