    WT Photo Selection, part 2

    Tuesday, June 15th, 2010

    First of all: thanks for all comments and ideas regarding the photo selection I’m going through. It’s been a huge help and it’s helped me focus. Thank you.

    I’ve found out that I want two themes for the exhibition (thanks, Chris 🙂 )

    1) The Expedition
    2) Nature/Culture

    , where 1) is (surprise) thematically focused on the expedition side of WT, whereas 2) will be focused on the natural/cultural diversity of the World.

    The selection for the Expedition part is shown below (or view as a standard photo album here (30 photos)):

    The selection for the Nature/culture part is shown below (or view as a standard photo album here (33 photos)):

    My aim is to cut down each series to around 20 photos (i.e 40 in total) and it’ll be a huge help for me to hear, which photos you think would fit in with the exhibition, which photos could be skipped (like one of those sunset shots or one of the “curvy road” shots from China in the nature/culture series etc.)

    I hope to hear from you.



    WT Photo Selection

    Tuesday, June 8th, 2010

    Over the past 3 months I’ve been going through the photos I’ve taken since 2006. 63,000 is the number. Massive task.

    One reason for all this sorting is that I plan to do a photo exhibition (more on that later) with selected pictures from expedition.

    I’ve come down to an agreeable 35 pictures and naturally, lots of darlings have been killed along the way. My aim is to select some 12 to 15 pictures and this is where I need YOU. I need your comments, ideas or suggestions for other images that I might have forgotten.

    The criterias used have been loosely defined, but I have generally selected photos that:

    – Explain themselves
    – Tell a story
    – Are technically suitable for a large format (approx. 70×100 cm, maybe larger)
    – In different ways provide an insight into the world, or into the life on the expedition
    – Are relatively simple in its expression (minus the slaughter of the cow :-))

    The 35 photos can be seen HERE or below…

    And please, be honest with me, be brutal if that’s what it takes for me to kill more darlings.

    I appreciate any help. Thanks.
