This summer at Messums London we will focus on photography as part of the wider picture alongside our debut for Emerging Artist Atong Atem.
Alongside these works will be two images by the world-respected photographer and film-maker Neal Slavin. Though he has photographed celebrities such as Steven Spielberg, Harrison Ford and Barbra Streisand, Slavin is best known for his Britons series – group portraits of ordinary societal life. Slavin has worked for most of the major magazines including The New York Times Magazine, Rolling Stone and The Sunday Times Magazine and has works in institutions such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Centre Pompidou and the John Paul Getty Museum.
Images of lone stars, ordinary people, or the photographers themselves, these images have in common a discerning and singular eye and we are excited to be showing them alongside each other.
