BENIGN SAMUEL: A London based British artist/fine art photographer of Ghanaian descent. “BENIGN” as in ‘kindness of disposition, pleasant and beneficial in nature or influence’; “SAMUEL” as in ‘heard of God’/’God has heard’; SAMUEL not Sam! In rabbinical literature, Samuel is considered the last of the Hebrew Judges and the first of the major prophets—placing him at the cusp of two eras. His work occupies the cusp of what is traditionally considered art and photography, challenging the artistic sensibilities of the observer.
Is photography art? “SAMUEL NOT SAM!” sets out to answer that question. You be the judge.
Private view on Friday 9 October 2015 from 6.30 to 8.30pm.
