Burroughs, Lynch and Warhol at TPG
05 February 2014
Until 30 March, The Photographers Gallery will be exhibiting photographs by American greats William S. Burroughs, David Lynch and Andy Warhol. The exhibitions provide a brilliant overview of the current trend of diarist photography, and together they give an insight into the use of photography as a tool to aid the creative process across many disciplines.
William S. Burroughs, famed for his achievements as a novelist, also documented street scenes, radio towers and people as an essential part of his creative process. His exhibition entitled, Taking Shots, a reference to his drug addiction, showcases for the first time his passion for photography.
The iconic cinematic style of David Lynch’s films like Mulholland Drive and Blue Velvet are echoed in his series of factory photographs and sound installations. The series, which is exhibited for the first time in Europe, explores dramatic black and white industrial scenes, and Lynch finds detail in manmade landscapes to create a range of emotive works.
The black and white 35mm compact film camera of the 1970’s developed Andy Warhol’s interest in capturing the everyday. Known for his colourful screen prints and films, Andy Warhol's works processed between 1976 and 1987 are a welcome exploration that reveals photography was central to his practice.
