Here is the curator statement from Tony Othen who runs The Greenwich Gallery.

The subject 'Crowds' is very broad and was purposely chosen to enable photographers to interpret it in a variety of ways.

The entries for 'Crowds' are very distinguished and have meant that the curators have had a very difficult task.

While looking carefully at each of the 142 entries there are a number of ways of grouping them together under headings such as:

Visual Geometry,
Contained images,
Uncontained images,
Story narative,
Unusual angle place or activity,
Emphasis on movement,
Interaction within the shot,
Irony (Crowds, what Crowds?)

An initial selection of 48 were made and that meant that a few could be chosen under each grouping.

Then came the hard bit - narrowing it down to just 10.

Actually we failed and had to settle for 15 so we hope this means that more people are happy to be on the gallery walls.

All the 15 photos which will be physically exhibited are shown on 'Crowds' page.

Below are the 33 entries which are chosen for Digital Exhibition in the Gallery.
