Notman sent his photographs to all the major international exhibitions in Europe and North America and to many local ones as well, where they received the highest praise from critics and top prizes from the judges. The items that attracted by far the most attention in these exhibitions, because of their uniqueness, were the composite photographs. A rarity they were in truth, for few other photographers engaged in the practice and fewer still produced composites with anything like the skill exhibited by the Notman team. Their huge size alone was enough to confirm the uniqueness of the ones Notman sent to various exhibitions.
