Liam Gallagher, Azealia Banks in groundbreaking photo exhibition

By
Music stars including ex-Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher and American rapper Azealia Banks appear in a groundbreaking new portraits exhibition.

Face to Face, by established music photographer Tom Oxley, opens its doors to the public at Londonewcastle Project Space in East London until Sunday 28 October.

The innovative portfolio of never before seen 'video portraits' includes many popular musicians. Professor Green, Mark Ronson, Wretch 32, The Maccabees, Rizzle Kicks, Delilah and Miles Kane are just some of those being projected larger than life.

Each moving portrait, accompanied by a music track of the subject's choice, enables the viewer to study the subject up close, providing them with an intimate glimpse of the artist.

A look at the Face to Face exhibition:

The show's organisers said: "The technique used for the installation pays homage to the practice of 19th century photographers and delivers these methods into the 21st century for a modern audience.

"Sitters in the past would often have to remain still for an extended period of time (usually up to three minutes) whilst the exposure set onto a glass plate.

"In today's world, we rely on the speed of modern cameras to capture the subject's personality in a split second. The installation aims to show that it is this play on time, extending the frame of portraiture, which becomes the greater study in character."

Londonewcastle Project Space is open Monday to Friday from 12pm to 8pm and Saturday to Sunday from 12pm to 6pm. Admission is free. For more information, visit the Face to Face official website.
