Avtarjeet Dhanjal
Images for a Hayward Gallery Exhibition Catalogue

The Background

I met Avtarjeet when he lived next door to me in South London. He was already an established sculptor securing commissions for public installations and exhibiting widely. I started working with him to interpret his work in slate photographically for publication in magazines.

Curators putting together an exhibition of the work of Afro Asian Artists in Post-war Britain, entitled 'The Other Story' at the Hayward Gallery, on London's South Bank wanted to include Avatarjeet's work. These images were then included in the catlogue for that exhibition and subsequently in a book by Brian McAvera about Avtarjeet's work entitled: 'Ploughing the Stars'.

The Technicalities

My photographs of the slate pieces series were shot with B&W negative film in a London gallery. Portraits and further images of artwork using B&W negative and colour transparency film were captured in the artist's studio where I had the benefit of scaffolding to obtain an arial viewpoint and on location where pieces were installed.
