Blushing, I acknowledge I did not know this photography gallery existed - yet it is seven minutes away by shanks' pony. Often have I been to a rival photography gallery, in the opposite direction, only to find its taste not to mine. I am open to 'expansion' but not to detonation! STILLS in Gosbell Street expands.
The Magnum Contact Sheet exhibition expands my thinking. Each contact sheet has a range of shots taken by a photographer, showing the ones that s/he thought of and discarded, and circling the one finally chosen. It is fascinating to work out not only that which worked, but also that which did not. The floor talk, by Fiona Rogers from Magnum (UK) was low-key, yet cut through much of the crap that surrounds this creative pursuit.
