Sean Smith: On the margins

Free

In the spooky setting of Kensal green cemetery, Guardian photographer Sean Smith exhibits his less familiar work. Alongside gruesome images from the inside of an abattoir, we see the well established war photographer swerve down side streets of conflict ridden cities, seeking out those teetering on the society’s edge.

A New Artists N/A organised exhibition.

cannot recommend this highly enough. the setting is daring, but the curators pulled it off. the photography is superb. i'd also take the time to wander through the beautiful cemetery afterwards to reflect on Smith's work. This is a retrospective of an extraordinary career, it manages to communicate what a compassionate chronicler of life Smith is. To use the words of a fellow visitor, "the humanity displayed in the images left an indelible impression on my consciousness" and I couldn't agree more. This is an acutely relevant exhibition and shouldn't be missed.
