Question:

*Why* exhibit your photos?

What is the functional purpose of exhibiting your work? What are the negative consequences of *not* sharing and exhibiting your photos?

Exhibeo in Latin— to hold forth, to share, present, show, reveal.

Habeo

Habeo in Latin means “you have”. So you have all these great photos … and you own them. But from your ownership of these images, to share your photos is to share your visual wealth.

We are social creatures. Thus, when we use our photos as social-interaction and social impact objects, we derive great joy!

The simple idea:

You make photos you’re proud of, and then you share these photos with others. These photos strike delight into the heart of your viewers, which in turn strikes delight into your heart. As a result, you have the zest to continue to keep shooting and producing more beautiful images!
