Taking Shots: The Photography of William S Burroughs Focusing solely on American Beat author William S Burroughs' photographic work, the exhibition at the Photographers' Gallery reveals a visual counterpart to his 'cut-up' writing style. The controversial writer's work, which often drew on his own experiences as a heroin addict living in London, Paris, Berlin and Mexico City, was fragmented and non-linear in style and this approach can be seen in his other artistic endeavours, including his photography. For his photo collages, Burroughs would arrange images together and photograph them, then cut some of the images up and repeat the process. "He is quite well known for his 'cut-up' technique [in his writing], cutting up sentences and mixing them all up, then reconfiguring them into something else," says Clare Grafik, head of exhibitions at The Photographers' Gallery. "I guess thats what he was doing visually with his collages."

 

About Photographers' Gallery

The Photographers' Gallery - Britain's leading centre for contemporary photography - emerged from a 3.6 million pound redesign in May 2012 revealing the work of Irish architects O'Donnell and Tuomey. Relocating from Great Newport Street, its home for the past 27 years, to occupy a former warehouse built in Ramilies Street in 1910, The Photographers' Gallery has three floors of galleries, a studio floor for education activities, a bookshop, cafe and print sales space.
