Description

From the Kurdish Community Centre to the Masons, the Fabian Society, The Indian Workers Association and the National Association of Flower Arrangers, Bridget Smith's portraits of London's private clubs, fraternal orders and ethnic societies reveal rich, hidden worlds within the city, spaces where communities are forged. Smith has an ongoing interest in architecture and the public realm, and an international reputation for photographing sites of public leisure (cinema auditoria) and private fantasy (themed hotel rooms, glamour studios). Her interiors always offer resonant and evocative portraits, but "Society" sees a shift in attention towards subject matter that some would argue is more resonant--community, the expression of identity, and the creation, in artifact and architecture, of homes-away-from-home.show more
