Harry Harrison Posted September 20, 2022 Share Posted September 20, 2022 Went to the Vivian Maier exhibition at the MK Gallery in Milton Keynes. The last week, closes on Sunday. Very good if you admire her work and I do. B&W images are all from her Rolleiflex, 12" x 12" gelatin prints, beautiful quality. Also 35mm colour prints, she left a very large number of 35mm Ektachrome slides as well. What I didn't like - pretty low light levels apparently forced on them by the owners of the exhibited works. In fact the first room wasn't lit at all, one person was even using their phone torch! I asked about it and after a while someone came and opened up the skylight a bit, much better. It seems there had been an electrical problem that caused them to remove the lighting tracks entirely in that room. The owners had also decreed that the captions were all about 1 metre off the ground so you had to bend down to read them each time, and so casting a shadow from the dim spotlights which made them even more difficult to read. Really they should have provided handouts with the captions on. Still mustn't be churlish I suppose, great to see such an important exhibition reasonably locally. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
