The main purpose of the Leica store is not to sell prints but you know that.
Anyway your prints and presentation look very clean and professional, high quality ... they fit in with the store environment.
I hope it will be successful for you one way or another.

Wooohooo, very Cool, Congrats !

I for One Like 'Title Cards'.... It gives me a Glimpse into the Photographers Thoughts and Mind. Sometimes I do enjoy a clever or comical Twist , the Play of Words & Visual

Whenever I go into the Leica store here in NYC
I have never had the Staff mention the works that are hanging on the walls
nor that they are for Sale or do they hand me info about the Photographer & Pricing....
I have to ask !!

Many thanks Helen! Yes I find it a bit curious as well regarding the 'austere' presentation of the photos. I mean heck, they're taking a 50% commission on the photos, so why not be more explicit about the fact that they're for sale?

BTW the folding chairs in one of the photos are from the 'artist talk' that I gave last Sunday. It went pretty well - about 12 people attended, and at the end of the talk I let the attendees leaf through a box of loose 11"x16" prints from the collection that were not on display in the show. Thought it was an idea for them to see some prints 'beyond the glass'.

Many thanks Klaus -- more sales are of course always appreciated. I'm also hoping that another Leica Store will pick up the show and exhibit it.

Very nice, clean presentation. It's similar to how shows at the SF Leica Store are hung, although your space is somewhat different in feel. I think at the SF store there's one spot with info about the photographer and the pieces, and there are programs on the counter with the photos/sizes/prices listed. That's de rigeur for a lot of galleries that I've been to.

I like the additional photos you've posted. Some very lovely work, congratulations!

Update on the Mapping the West show -- it will be traveling west to the Leica Store in Bellevue, Washington in April of next year!

The store chose 16 different pieces from the album (I think there are maybe 3 shots that are carrying over from the DC show). Very exciting!

The show is scheduled to be installed on Sunday April 10th, with a reception (maybe) the following weekend. The store is located in a shopping mall, and they have had receptions in the store in the past with varying levels of success. We'll have to see what is ultimately decided. They're also talking about wanting to do a Leica Akademie event of some kind -- maybe a walkabout/field trip?

One of the things that I particularly appreciated is that among the photo 'choices' is a photo that I just took a week ago in New Mexico.
