This exhibition presents portraits of strangers, exploring issues of trust between photographer and subject.
Both photographers invited total strangers to participate in their projects – Sipke Visser using the classifieds website Gumtree and Elizabeth Gordon using posters in the local area.
The subjects had to take a leap of faith in participating in the projects – with Sipke Visser, visiting his home rather than an established photographic studio; with Elizabeth Gordon, meeting a stranger in a park.
Catalogue includes an essay by Lisa Robertson and introduction by Viewfinder curator Louise Forrester.
The Viewfinder Photography Gallery is a registered charity which showcases the work of emerging art photographers.
