In cooperation with Rogaland Theatre we are delighted to present the very famous "Persons Unknown" series by Tom Hunter.
Woman Reading a Possession Order, 1997. C-print. 152 x 122 cm. Edition of five. Tom Hunter (British, born 1965) © Tom Hunter 2011. Statoil art collection
Tom Hunter is one of the leading art photographers and has been exhibited internationally in several major solo and group shows. Many regard the Persons Unknown
series as his "breakthrough" on the international art scene.
Tom Hunter lives and works in East London and his work is often particular, but not exclusive, to his community and neighbourhood.
In the Persons Unknown
series Hunter captures the lives of squatters living in Hackney, East London, through a series of photographs which allude to the paintings of the 17th century painter, Jan Vermeer.
Several of the photographs in the series have become iconic and taken their place in the history of photography. Opening:
Saturday 12 May 2012 at 17.00.
