Today, in the esteemed company of my favourite Aussie, I went to see the Yoko Ono exhibish at the Tate Modern.
Some thought provoking stuff in there.
Along with some properly barking stuff.
Suffice it to say, you don't generally get one without the other.

Last weekend, I went to a 100 years of surrealism exhibition in Brussels. Which took a broad view of the movement and themed the groups of (mostly) pictures by ideas from the manifesto (rather than, time or place). Which was interesting. And made for something more varied than melting dreams and fish!

Francesca Woodman and Julia Margaret Cameron at the National Portrait Gallery. Some interesting similarities,  and I enjoyed both of their work.

A selection of Dorothea Lange images in Washington. Moving and accomplished.
It is simpler than it looks.

I went to the big Dorothea Lange exhibition at the Barbican a few years back. Maybe it was tainted by the fact they had trawled up just about everything to fill a big exhibition. But apart from her one famous photograph and maybe a small handful of others, they were technically very poor: composition, exposure, focus, just about everything. Moving? Yes, absolutely. Accomplished? I'd have to disagree.

It's been interesting seeing a number of other photorgraphers work from the time, and earlier. I think nowadays we demand much more technically proficient images, as a result of the advancement in technology and the advent of digital.

I think that the importance of the image itself sometimes take less precedence than it should. I know nowadays I am very harsh on off exposure and focus errors than I would have been in the manual film era.

Finally got to the Holbein exhibition at the Queen's King's Gallery.

Being able to be that close to the drawings was rather wonderful.
The supporting book is also a joy.

Saw the hanging today, of an exhibition that starts tomorrow - of my photos of gigs at our local venue.

More by chance than anything else but there's an exhibition of Vivienne Westwood's career at the Northampton town museum.
It's a small exhibition, but gives enough space to the various phases of her work.
As might be expected in Northampton it does tend to major on shoes.
I wouldn't go purely for this special exhibition, but if you want to pass a couple of hours in Northampton the museum has a gallery devoted to shoe making (with a pair of Beryl Burton's cycling shoes) and a small art gallery.

That must be really exciting! (and nerve wracking)

Yes!

Well, it opened yesterday and seems to be going well. Very odd seeing my images up on the walls. Some have sold already!
