News paper sofa!

By maggietear
We saw this in the Saatchi Gallery in Chelsea on the Open London Weekend, last September. What is great about the gallery is that you are free to take photos of any exhibits. I liked the fact that that this sofa is making very little impression on the visitors!

Thanks for looking

The risk would be of visitors making an impression on the sofa...
I like the way you have seen this, portrait with strong foreground plus the three figures. I must bear this place in mind.

I get the feeling the gallery people didn't trust visitors not to sit on the sofa. Well composed and interesting image Maggie.

I think I've see that there is a Sale on these at the moment.
But ... you have to hurry - the after Sale price is doubled.

Great shot!

Moira's right: excellent composition - and interesting that photography is allowed...

On my list of must visit places. Art galleries are so full of interesting things to look at, apart from and as well as, the art. Smile
