So last Wednesday, Beat Streuli came back to Ikon Gallery in Birmingham for a conversation with Jonathan Watkins about his recent exhibition ‘New Street’. In this there was the discussion about the work in itself and how Streuli has changed his vision over the years with the digital paradigm shift. For me, an important point he mentioned was that he stays clear of what has been done over and over, because how can he better it. Some themes have been over done.
As part of my Internship, I was asked to photograph this event for Ikon’s archive and newsletters. I have added some of the images here. Photographing events is not something new to me; however, it is all good experience. I asked Simon Taylor exactly what he was looking for. He said to photograph individuals as portrait and more open shots as landscape.
