THE HEROES OF MODERN UK MANUFACTURING
Ends – 31 October 2011
The 1981 self-portrait taken by celebrated photographer Cindy Sherman was sold at a Christie’s auction Wednesday. The sale surpassed Christie’s estimates of $1.5-2 million ringing in at a final price of $3,890,500. That’s not only a record for the photographer, but also the “highest price ever realized for a photograph,” says Daniel Kunitz, editor in chief of Modern Painters.
Our third year Photography Ba (Hons) students are currently installing their degree show into the School of Art and Design’s ‘Lanchester Gallery’ in preparation for the launch this Wednesday. The show, titled ‘Photo Synthesis’ will run 25th May – 8th June in Coventry before moving on to the ‘Rag Factory’ in London (24th – 26th June). Full details can be found on the dedicated Phosyn website.
