South Bank Show for photography student Anna Whittall
YOUNG photographer Anna Whittall has a four-day exhibition in London’s arts hub.
The 22-year-old was chosen from hundreds of artists across the UK to take part in Zealous X, on the South Bank.
Her photos go on show from Friday, November 29 in the Bargehouse, a warehouse gallery that is part of the Oxo Tower and close to the Tate Modern, the Royal National Theatre and the Royal Festival Hall.
Anna’s Derelict Perspective images examine how we see and react to abandoned spaces.
The project began when she focused on derelict buildings at night in her final year studying photography at Plymouth College of Art.
“I found it quite hard to get permission to go to these places – especially at night,” says Anna. “I decided to start building a series of miniature-scaled domestic spaces based on the problems and effects produced by the current recession and explore exactly how things become derelict.”
