Gallery 46 in Whitechapel is our new sister gallery to be used as Londonewcastle Project Space. The new space, established through the partnership of Martin J Tickner and Sean McLusky and Fruitmachine founders, Martin Bell & Wai Hung Young breaks fresh ground for the open-source, non-conformist curatorial approach Tickner and McLusky employed at their (rightly) notorious MEN Gallery, in Shoreditch.Housed in a pair of newly renovated Georgian houses in the grounds of Whitechapel Hospital, GALLERY 46 is set over 3 floors and 8 rooms and is a kaleidoscopic addition to Whitechapel’s burgeoning gallery scene and close by its artistic...→

**A Show of Faces** is the first solo exhibition of photographer Ted Dwane. Armed with his trusty Rolleiflex, Dwane captures the many faces he encounters on the road as part of one of the most successful British bands of the last 10 years, *Mumford & Sons*. Dwane’s work employs the use of traditional photographic methods with portraiture at the centre of his fascinations.
The exhibition will include a small collection of existing work, however, the main focus will be on the work created in the space over the course of the show. The gallery will not just act as a vehicle for exhibition, it will also accommodate the concept, creation and process of the work with the exhibition yielding its own exhibits.
“I will be creating 16×20 inch direct to positive portraits. The camera will be in full view and the portraits created will be on the wall before they are dry. My aim is to immerse, inspire and excite people about the photographic process whilst creating portraits that capture the essence of the individual sitter.
The longer exposure times required created pictures that are far beyond simple snapshots of what a person looks like. The aim of these portraits is to confront the viewer with as much of the sitters disposition as can be gathered by a photograph.”
