About

Acclaimed artist Tom Hunter is best known for his photographic reworkings of old-master paintings and for being the only artist to have had a photography show at the National Gallery. For the RSC he has created a new series of photographs inspired by Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream and the paintings of the Romantic artist Henry Fuseli. Hunter's contemporary reworking of the play focuses on real lives and communities in Hackney where he lives and works. By using different groups in his neighbourhood including samba dancers, pearly kings and queens, a thrash metal band and a pole dancer, new meanings are given to the everyday.
