Last Tuesday night the Flaere Gallery on Cork Street was
bursting at the seams with eager folk including Dougray Scott,
Michael Gambon and Jeremy Clarkson all trying to look, read and
congratulate photographer Tom Craig and Vanity Fair contributor
A.A. Gill on their latest show.
The work is made up of highlights from the duo's assignments
spanning four continents and eight years; from the glaciers of
Greenland to a North Sea trawler to war torn Chad.
The photographs are accompanied by text; while Craig plays with
light and composition, Gill plays with words and syntax. But
all the while there is a sense of a relationship and ongoing
conversation between photographer and writer. The experience for
the reader/viewer is 'get two for the price of one'; not a
collaboration but a personal story told twice.
