The Production Line of Happiness

15 - 4 - 2015


A new show opening at The Whitechapel is a survey of the work of Christopher Williams, an artist who takes the idiom of commercial photography to explore the imagery of consumerism.




Accustomed as we are to seeing 'perfect' images in our daily life, have our eyes become immune to the trickery of the camera? We read Williams' images reflected through this learned view but the discovery of a break or a blemish highlights the beauty of imperfection.




There is the thrill of playing detective when looking at these works, especially as Williams's technical skill is equal to any advertising photographer. Go the the Whitechapel from 29th April - 21st June and look a little deeper.
