PHOTO / WORD •  The bigger picture - a story told twice. by photographer Tom Craig and writer A.A. Gill

‘The one thing words and pictures have in common is that their craft is all in the editing. Out of the streaming confusion of information and images, we have to sift and select the things that make a cogent, coherent, engaging plot...

...What is happening just outside the picture are the words. And when we get it right, the image and the writing, when they come together, they make something that is greater than their binary parts. They’re not illustrations or captions, but a tandem, complimentary work, without repetition or duplication." A.A. Gill

Adrian Anthony Gill (born 28 June 1954) is a British writer who uses the byline A. A. Gill. He is currently employed by The Sunday Times as their restaurant reviewer and television critic and Vanity Fair magazine as a restaurant reviewer.

His essays are known for their humour and satirical content, and have caused offence to various groups, including the county of Norfolk, Welsh, Manx, Albanians, Germans and the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender communities.’ Cited from his Wikipedia entry.

We are impressed by the degree of so much political in-correctness.

'The bigger picture' shows works by British photographer Tom Craig (born in 1974) accompanied by writing by A.A. Gill.

He and the author A.A. Gill are a well-oiled team – they have been working with clients on four continents over the course of the last eight years.

The exhibition might combine word and image, but GoSee likes to stick to traditions and showcase the pictures for now.

However, if you happen to be in London, you can go and check out the words (and images) yourself – GoSee says hi!
