Here at Oxford Executive we believe in opportunity for all, which is why we’re is delighted to be supporting an art project being run by the homeless charity Crisis. The ICON project brings together Crisis artists with celebrated Oxford-based photographer Rory Carnegie. Together they have been recreating a series of iconic British photographs that represent what it means to be British.
Carnegie, who has had exhibitions both in the UK and broad, has been working closely with a number of individuals who are keen to learn about the different aspects of making a photograph – from composition and lighting to make-up and prop sourcing. The work will be a response to stimuli from the photographs selected.
The resulting exhibition, to be held at the Old Fire Station in November 2019, will be a series of photographs representing some of the most recognisable and famous people, or moments, in recent British history – recreated by those who are often disregarded or ignored by society.
