Puppet is the new photographic exhibition by Pirasteh Gourang, inspired by her battle with essential tremor. The artworks demonstrate the innovative ways she's found to work around limitations that would usually put a stop to the career of a professional photographer. The resulting images are compelling for their first glance serenity and beauty, but slowly reveal the turmoil and isolation of the condition.
After decades of struggling with essential tremor Gourang found the invaluable help of the National Tremor Foundation, who are supporting this exhibition. She aims to raise awareness of this largely unknown condition with images that explore the unravelling onset of the tremor, in search of the calm and peace the affliction denies.
Puppet takes place from September 5th to 17th at Menier Gallery, 51 Southwark Street, SE1 1RU. The opening night is on Tuesday 6th from 6 - 8.30pm, it's free to attend.
