a visit to the National Portrait Gallery 2

Once again, time to visit the National Portrait Gallery.

There is an exhibition on downstairs of images by Sarah Brown. Although these are of famous people, the choice is interesting with captions that give some insight into how the photographs were made and the person who was portrayed.

I also looked at an exhibition of Mughal style paintings by the Singh sisters from Liverpool; another exhibition was about the Indian portrait. It was interesting to see these stylised works and although far removed from photography, there are certain parallels if only in composition.
