The Ballad Of British Folklore Exhibition at Christie's, South Kensington, London.Well it finally happened. My platinum prints are now on display at Christie's auctoin house in London. They form part of The Museum Of British Folklore's exhibition 'The Ballad Of British Folklore'. The prints, which are from my Rushbearers series (and can be found on this site here and here), feature amongst a great many folklore artefacts and the work of fellow photographers including the excellent Homer Sykes and Sarah Hannant.
On the night of the private viewing we had attendance figures of around the 1,000 mark and were treated to a number of talks, live demonstrations and performances and I had the pleasure of discussing my work with a good number of people. It was superb fun and absolutely lovely to see the work in situ. The exhibition runs from 25 July – 1 September 2016 at Christie's Auction House, South Kensington, London. www.christies.com/exhibitions/2016/the-ballad-of-british-...If anyone should find themselves in London over the summer please try to pop by and give the museum (and me!) their support.
Talking of support I'd like to give thanks to the excellent Hahnemühle UK for allowing me to use its new Platinum Rag paper for the project. It produced excellent results and if your interested in trying it yourself then that's another good reason to visit Christie's to check it out. :)
Anyway here's some pictures from the official opening to give a little flavour of what went on.
