Whatsapp closes when i press "Show All" after "View"

Hi there,

my good friend and i send media (mainly photos) very often, and it has reached the 1500s mark. I meet with Whatsapp closing automatically when i choose "Show All" after "view"-ing the photos one by one.

For normal contacts when there aren't so many (maybe about 20 media items), it is really nicely grouped into "This Month", "This Week" or "Recent".

Is there a maximum number, that when exceeded that automatically shuts it down, like in my case? Or if not, how can i tackle my problem, and view all systematically, without having my Whatsapp close each time i do that?

Thank you.
