A Show of Faces

About

A Show of Faces is the first solo exhibition of Photographer Ted Dwane. Armed with his Rolleiflex and mobile darkroom, Dwane captures the many faces he encounters on the road as part of one of the most successful British bands of the last ten years, Mumford and Sons. In an age when most photographs are never processed into a physical image, Dwane's fascinations are focused on the traditional photographic process where all edits are conducted in the moment of taking the picture. The exhibition will include a small collection of existing work, however the main focus will be on the images created in the space over the course of the show. Titled ‘Major Minor Portraits', the work aims to immerse, inspire and excite people about the photographic process whilst creating portraits that strive to offer the deepest possible insight into the individual sitter. Major Minor Portraits is a live collaboration between Dwane and immersive theatre group Reuben Feels. Sitters will be selected at random from exhibition visitors and asked to become part of the spectacle they came to experience. Dwane will create a ‘Direct to Positive', one-off image of his subjects, a live soundtrack will accompany the longer exposure times in an attempt to intensify the existing mood of the individual. The portraits will be hung whilst still wet with the entire process taking only ten minutes. A questionnaire completed by the sitter will hang alongside their image, conveying a yet deeper representation of their portrait. By the end of the exhibit Dwane aims to have created over 100 unique portraits, each with a unique story attached.
