“I used to think that I could never lose anyone if I photographed them enough. In fact, my pictures show me how much I’ve lost.” – Nan Goldin

Gallery Submissions

As a photographer, I have always found the process of submitting my work to galleries to be both exciting and nerve-wracking. It’s a way for me to gauge whether my artwork is viewed positively or negatively in the eyes of others. While I could rely on the opinions of my friends and family to determine the quality of my work, seeking feedback from someone with an art background and experience in viewing a wide range of art is a much more reliable indicator of my talent.

My journey as a photographer began with a passion for capturing the world around me. I found solace in the art of photography, a way to express my creativity and tell stories through the lens of my camera. As I honed my skills and developed my own unique style, I began to feel a sense of pride in my work. However, I knew that I needed to get a more objective perspective on my photography if I wanted to grow as an artist.

Submitting my work to galleries allowed me to do just that. The process of selecting pieces that I felt best represented my abilities and then sending them off to be evaluated by professionals was both exhilarating and terrifying. I knew that my work would be judged on its merits, and I was eager to see how it would be received.

As I continued to submit my work to galleries, I began to notice a shift in the quality of my photographs. I was no longer just taking pictures; I was creating art that resonated with others.

In the end, submitting my work to galleries has been an invaluable experience. It has allowed me to grow as an artist and refine my skills. While not every piece will be a masterpiece, the process of seeking out feedback and learning from my mistakes has been an essential part of my journey as a photographer.
