Alan Newnham London

From 7-16 November, Pearlfisher’s gallery space will become home to the exhibition of an exquisite personal collection by renowned photographer Alan Newnham.

A fork is an intimate object. We interact with it in a unique way, everyday and without thinking. Alan Newnham’s personal work considers this relationship as the central theme in this exhibition. He looks at these objects of utility and puts them in a place where they can be admired for their beauty. Frames that were originally crafted with skill and now refashioned complete the artwork, acknowledging the beauty of utility and the patina of age.

Patina: a Photography Exhibition by Alan Newnham, 7-16 November, Monday – Friday, 10am-6pm, or by appointment. At The Gallery at Pearlfisher. Find more details here.
