Today our club members are putting up their panels of prints for the club's annual exhibition, there is no selection process to go through, you put up what you like, usually in a panel of six prints, or whatever number you think will fit into the space available to you.
With some 60+ people exhibiting there will be a wide range of genres for the public to view. The viewers comprise people who come in off the street and have very little or no idea about the photographic process that has been gone through to arrive at the pictures on view, and photographers.
It is usually the former group that enjoy the exhibition for what it is, a display of pictures, and go away pleased that they have spent 30-60 minutes visiting, depending on the weather outside!
The second group, the photographers, spend ages looking, examining, discussing amonst themselves the why's and wherefores of the pictures.
So perhaps the old saying "Where ignorance is bliss, 'tis folly to be wise" is applicable to looking at pictures.
