Micheal Ormerod Photographs from 'States of America''

Following in Robert Frank footsteps four decades on, Ormerod reflects a very different mood to the optimism described in Franks photographs which seduced the foreign sensibility of the 1950s. Particularly poignant after the events of September 11th 2001, the exhibition shows a culture full of contradictions.

The photographs juxtapose the beautiful and the ugly, suggest a hidden sense of menace and corruption, whilst others are sympathetic portraits of people who display a knowingness and wounded acceptance of their fate.
