Picture this: The funny thing about Melbourne gallery-goers
The Van Gogh Seasons exhibit is smashing attendance records at the National Gallery of Victoria.
And it seems to have given rise to a new brand of gallery-goer: the photo-taker.
Ross and John have fielded several reports of these people, who thrust themselves in front of the painting and dozens other visitors to snap away – often with flash on!
Young and old are involved – this is clearly not a generation trend.
But what we don’t know is this: What on earth do they do with the photos?
Have they never heard of Google Images?
Below is a photo diary snapped by 3AW producer Matt Cram in the NGV yesterday.
