Portraits + Architecture

Friday 11 September until Sunday 15 November 2009

This exhibition explores creative process and identity. Seven architect teams known for their contemporary and highly distinctive work have created installations reflecting their creative philosophy. The architect teams each invited a photographer to create inventive portrait photographs within a modular format. The installations and portrait photographs have been commissioned for exhibition by the National Portrait Gallery.

The National Portrait Gallery exhibition Portraits + Architecture is an experiment. The participants have been asked to think about their creative practice in a new way. The exhibition explores the relationship between creative thinking and identity and incorporates new photographic portraits of creative individuals and groups.
