Review of Exhibitions
On the 28th of May, my mum and I went for a day out in Birmingham, in which we went to 2 exhibitions about different kinds of photography.
We got there at around 1130 off the train and our first visit was to the Birmingham Museums and Art Gallery.

Vanley Burke: Photographing Birmingham
We arrived at around 12 pm and the admission price was free. We walked around the venue and I gathered from the photographs that he only took pictures in black and white.
I didn’t really enjoy this exhibition, as it was basically all the same photos. They were mostly of people in black and white.

It was a good experience to gather evidence from another photography practitioner. Although I didn’t like the photos as much as my second exhibition, I’m sure other viewers would’ve liked it.

IGers Birmingham: Best of Birmingham Exhibition
After the Vanley Burke exhibition, we went on the tram to the Jewellery Quarter to visit the IGers Birmingham Exhibition.
We went in and it was a free visit walk around the show.

This exhibition I thought was really nice. Because it was ordinary people like me taking photos of different landmarks in Birmingham, that don’t really have that much popularity, and they enter into a competition and the winners have been chosen from over 1200 entries.

The photos there were really nice and there were many different ‘perspectives’ of the photos, from different people.

This was a really enjoyable and memorable day. And I will really recommend going to an event like this.
