I need to know what the right thing to do is.

Hi everyone:

I recently published (self) a book of my photos on Amazon. It is called Urban Dada, and it is my vision of street art/posters/ephemera as abstract collage art.

My question is this: I would like to send copies of my book to various experts in the genre to get their perspective and (hopefully) recognition. Is this a good idea? Is this how it is "done" professionally?

Or should I try to win a contest or show in a gallery first????? (presuming I succeed at those).

I also wondered if it was more appropriate to send them actual hard copies of the book or email them a PDF of the whole book. I know nothing about photography promotions or etiquette.

Perhaps you know of a way that is more effective/acceptable/ commonly done?
