#2. "RE: Showing my work at an exhibition for the first time" In response to Reply # 1
My question is this, over the past year I've been working on a project photographing people on their allotments with the aim to put on an exhibition at the end of it.
The people who are in the photographs knew about my plans and my exhibition and there was no objection whatsoever, I just wanted to show my work thats all. The photos are 16 x 12" framed and mounted.
The question was put to me about selling the photographs but I want to know legally were I stand with that as I've no model releases for any work I've done because they were originally only for hanging in a gallery.

I think I would pu t this question in the Turning Pro-Going Professional forum, or alternately the English Cafe.
I am not in the UK, so I can't tell you how the laws apply there. In the US there is a certain amount of leeway based on whether or not the subject could presume some privacy in a setting. On the street, little privacy can be presumed.
