Open Eye Gallery’s curatorial team have selected six artists whose work is thematically grouped around ideas of social portraiture for Open 1. The show brings together photography that narrates individual stories and yet addresses issues of collective relevance and general public interest. Each series on display has a personal dimension (often more introvert, suffered and lyrical) and a public-facing one (socially and politically engaged and more militant). Such tension is differently resolved in the work of each selected artist/photographer.
Featured artists: Billy Macrae, Deborah Kelly, Helen Marshall, Louis Quail, Richard Ross,Sonal Kantaria
