looking at art, a gallery on Flickr.

When Flickr first introduced galleries, I began to curate. Naturally, blur became prominent, but the ones I keep returning to are photographs of people looking at art. I have ten galleries of these.
What is it about images like these that appeals to me? I like the moment of quietness, of contemplation, of trying to see what can be seen.
Hope you like them too.

  1. Thanks for including my photo Brendan… I take these photos because I feel that humans bring life to art galleries and museums … what would be the point of the galleries existing if people didn’t want to enjoy them? And I hope that humans add another element … of life … and allow me to create a different kind of “art”.
    Anyway …!
