NIGEL GRIMMER in ’30 Artists 30 Days’

Based on a True Story – Nigel Grimmer

Friends and family enter Nigel Grimmer’s photographic work through his continual reworking of the family album format. Disrupting our expectations of “traditional” family portraiture Grimmer obscures the identities of his models, protecting them from the viewer’s gaze; his family are pictured turning their backs to the camera, or masking themselves with a variety of disguises. Grimmer will be exhibiting work from several of his best-known series including Roadkill Family Album and The Dunces, as well as new work Extended Family Album, created for 30 Days 30 Artists.
