How should I hang lots of photos together?
Jun 8, 2013

I have about 60 ft. of horizontal space and a 10' ceiling to hang photos.  Most of the images are 12" X 18" and I'll use roughly a 4" mat and black wooden gallery frames.  Prints are about 60% landscape, 30% portrait, and 10% square.  Images typically have nothing in common except that they are my best shots.  The majority are color, but there are some B&W also.

Several years ago, the frames always seemed to follow the image contents, e.g., landscape images were framed in landscape frames.  Then they went on the wall whichever way they could.

Recently, frames all seem to go the same way in galleries, fine restaurants, etc., especially portrait, and the mats are cut to fit the image and frame both.

I am also looking for advice on the most pleasing distance between frames horizontally.

Any suggestions and/or references are appreciated!
