Norfolk Street gallery hosts an exhibition by local photographer Ian Farrell
Head down to Norfolk Street’s Changing Spaces gallery this month to check out Someone You Love, the latest exhibition from Cambridge-based photographer Ian Farrell. Beginning on 8 February, this week-long show is a continuation of Ian’s Open Studios project, in which he asked all of his subjects to think of the same thing while he photographed them: someone that they love. The results were then printed in real time and hung on the wall throughout the day.
“It was an experiment that turned out to be far more popular than I imagined,” says Ian. “I think visitors liked reading the pictures’ captions and scrutinising the faces in each picture to find the emotion.”
The 2016 Someone You Love exhibition will follow a similar format, showing many of the pictures captured in 2015 while also offering visitors the opportunity to sit for a portrait themselves. Photographs shot during the exhibition will be printed and displayed throughout the week – and participants can take home a print in return for a small donation. There will be a special late-night opening (until 9pm) on the 14 February to celebrate Valentine’s day.
