Format Festival hanging guide
Here’s the hanging plan I used for my exhibition at the Format Festival earlier this year. I wanted to use images of different sizes, and I was growing exceedingly tired of the traditional horizontal grid. I felt I needed something a little more organic that gelled more closely with the meandering way I made my photographs.
This hanging plan was the result. At the festival’s opening night, I was boogying on the dance floor with the delightful girl who hung my work. “Hin, to be honest I was terrified of making a mistake! This was the most complex thing I had to do during the whole week!” While I sympathised in the flesh, a part of me quietly rejoiced internally: I wouldn’t have had it any other way!
