What is it?

The exhibition FACE UP explores the relationship they have both developed to the photograph as portrait, the term Face Up suggests a facing up to truths or a sense of landing upright in the right place.

In much of their work Gupta and Fox use a very controlled approach to photographing their subjects, directing them quite specifically in order to explore and extend their radical ideas, revealing aspects of life that normally remain concealed.
Both photographers work from the starting point of the personal and the private; their work questions past representations & raises new questions and dilemma’s concerned with race, gender and identity.
