    Report on Foto Nova 19 show at Modernbook Gallery

    The show was very well attended, one estimate put it at 600 people. Large crowd for a moderate sized gallery, not easy to see the pictures on the wall. The portfolio showing went well. I showed my work one-on-one to about 25-30 people and really appreciated the feedback from the knowledgeable viewers. I sold three photographs and a few more people expressed interested in buying a piece. A curator invited me to present work to her gallery. Had a nice talk about my work with a photographer whose work I admire. Some of the other photographers sold more, some less. The economy is down, of course. Overall, a very nice and worthwhile experience.
