Exhibition – 2011

photo.alingham.com

Exhibition is a slightly different web project that I have been working on. It’s not so much a website, as it is a portal for a photography exhibition.

Essentially I took the idea of walking around a gallery, where the photos are presented nicely in frames. I made background frames for the photos from a photo of a frame. The photos themselves are pulled in from a Flickr Set. Links can be made to different tags or sets from the URL and the photos inside the frame changes. You can click on the left or the right to go to the previous or next photo by scrolling horizontally. The website will also automatically move to the next photo after a predetermined amount of time, unless your mouse is over the photo.

This does however have its limitations. Photos that are panoramic in their aspect ratio are displayed at the set width, but the frame does not adjust. Likewise, photos taken in portrait format are cropped to fit the standard 6×9 photo frame size in landscape more. Fixes for these are yet to be developed.

You can view this project in action at my website.
