Quilts, Photographs and Galleries - Paul Sugden - This article was written for The Australian Forum for Textile Arts. In it, Sugden discusses an issue that arose with a photographer who was hired by a gallery to take photos of an exhibit. The photographer susequently published the photos of the quilter's artwork on his own website, claiming he had copyright of the photos.
Sugden provides a clause that artists should require to be inserted in any contract that a gallery or other venue has with a photographer. NOTE: artists could also amend it for insertion in the general publicity permission statement they sign with venues for exhibitions.
