London Art Fair

Last night I went along to a talk at The London Art Fair on behalf of the Whitechapel Gallery about Gillian Wearing's work (their exhibition runs 28th March - 17th June 2012). It was really interesting in relation to a new project that I am shooting which, up until now, had been dealing with still lives. I've been teetering with getting back into self-portraiture, something that initially drew me into photography. Some of Gillian's new work in which she photographs herself using prosthetic masks of not only her own face, but others such as Andy Warhol have got me thinking. Great inspiration!

We also realised that despite only having a ticket to a free talk we could walk around the entire exhibitions without having to buy a ticket. Score! Here's some random snaps. I didn't catch the artists - sorry!
