The posting below is a joke!
In New York, the intense expense for printing up large images and framing them is overwhelming.
Any photographer or artist who shells out the money for this will understand that financial hurt real quick!
It also takes a real fool, not to know that there is less than a 1% chance of anyone at a gallery showing, actually hiring a photographer for anything.
That's just not the way the industry works!
People don't look at fanciful, artistic photographs at an art showing, then turn around and hire you to do fashion, weddings, product photography or other wise.
Hoping for a chance of that is incredibly unrealistic.
Promising photographers "Industry Exposure" in exchange for the expense and effort they endure to put a showing together is simply absurd.
The only individual(s) to benefit from such a crack-pot situation is the "venue".
If you're a young photographer starting out, do yourself a favor and ignore this idiotic type of posting!
