The Photographers' Gallery asks us to consider the
photograph as object. We are asked to appreciate that some artists do
things like expose photographs under water, or purposely damage their
prints and negatives or even (as in one of Andy Warhol's less exciting
interventions) literally stitch pictures together in a hopeless attempt
to make them less dull.
away on the top floor of the gallery are 10 "Overpainted Photographs"
by the German contemporary artist Gerhard Richter. As a selection, they
are haphazard, but the opportunity to see any of these brilliant little
things is too good to miss.
