Exhibitions

Atlas Gallery ( http://www.atlasgallery.com ) is showing a selection of surreal photographs under the title : The Psychic Lens. The exhibits from the 1920s through the 1960s include both standard photographs and experimental techniques including solarisation, montage, collage and others. The work of Man Ray is well represented along with a number of others who I have never heard of. The exhibition is a nice complement to Tate Modern’s The Radical Eye.

My visit to the gallery was preceded by a quick look around the newly opened Design Museum in Kensington ( designmuseum.org/ ). Fascinating building, beautifully finished and promising a range of exhibitions and events that will make return visits well worth while.
