PHOTOGRAPHER Jamie Abbott will exhibit a cross-section of his work in the Stock Exchange building from May 15-22.
Mr Abbott secured the sought-after exhibition space after being noticed exhibiting his work in the BankWest Tower lobby earlier this month.
Mr Abbott said the exhibition location was ideal if he was to attract buyers from his target market – the corporate sector.
The exhibition will feature 40 photographs featuring scenes ranging from the jungles of Ecuador to the pavements of inner-city New York.
Mr Abbott sold around $1,500 worth of his work in the BankWest showing and anticipates that he will sell half of the artworks in the Stock Exchange exhibition, with prices ranging from $250-$450. The highest price ever achieved for an Abbott original was £1,000, from a UK business.
“I’m not really one for business plans. I am trying to establish myself as an artist instead of limiting myself to just selling my pieces to magazines,” he said.
“In Perth, photography is not embraced as ‘art’ in the same way painting or sculpting is, therefore it is more difficult to get commissioned work.”
