2: 15pm London Trilogy
Artist talk by Milan Svanderlik
Following his two most recent exhibitions, 100 Faces of London (2012) and Outsiders in London, Are you one, too? (2015) both of which highlighted the great diversity amongst Londoners (they are still available online) Milan has recently completed his third major project on life in the capital. While Londoners at Home: The Way We Live Now, which forms the final part of his 'London Trilogy', can certainly be seen as furthering Milan's interest in exploring the extraordinary diversity of the capital's inhabitants and the lives they lead, in his latest project, he has stepped out from the studio, photographing and interviewing people in their own homes or the places where they live.
