The photographer's Gallery is to host an exhibition by Fiona Tan.
Called Vox Populi, London, the exhibition will run from the 15 – 30 September 2012.
Following her work in Norway, Sydney, Tokyo and Switzerland, Tan has been invited by the Gallery to take part in its Soho Projects commissions and make London the focus of her fifth and final instalment in the series. Presented as an exhibition and an artist’s publication, Vox Populi, London sees Tan collecting photographs from a wide range of Londoners’ personal family albums to create a portrait of the city and its community.
Approximately ninety residents of the city were asked to provide the artist with their photo album collections. Individuals taking part in the project were chosen following careful research into the different communities in London and approached via a personal invitation. The final selection of images showcases the city’s diversity through its inclusion of various cultural, social and economic backgrounds.
