So far nobody wanted to show my photos from the series “Die Dunkle Seite” (“The Dark Side”), therefore I started my own exhibition.


In a photography magazine I happened to come on a give-away: a test account for a virtual gallery at Graphtwerk.

It is half year, free trial, in which you can setup max. 5 different exhibitions with 100 pictures, each. You upload the images to their server and then add information on size, style, price, title, etc.  to each work.
You can only upload the images and also add the information one-by-one, which is thus is a bit cumbersome. According  to Graphtwerk they’re working on a new version which should be a bit more comfortable to work with. If you have uploaded all the pictures, you create a new exhibition, for which one first selects a showroom. Here are a few examples:

The images are assigned to the exhibition and must be positioned on the walls. The editor works just fine but it does not always apply all changes, what you realize until afterwards, when you starting the preview.

Also, there are a few bugs, such as the switch to hide the already hung pictures from the entire list doesn’t work. You can also assign a frame to the images which does not always work right away. So it was fiddle until I had finished the exhibition. But overall it’s a great opportunity to show his photographs in a virtual space. Click on the image to launch the exhibition:
