This February, East London photo gallery theprintspace will open its doors for Sample 12, an exhibition showcasing a cross-section of images by photographers and artists who have printed at theprintspace in 2011. The exhibition was compiled by Sample 12 curator, award-winning reportage photographer Toby Smith. “Curating a themed exhibition from such a diverse collection of images was always going to be difficult. Instead, I have picked work that is strong on both technical and aesthetic grounds as single images or diptychs. Dislocated from their context the shots can become even more mysterious and hopefully encourage the audience to track down other works in the same series.” Sample 12 opens at theprintspace gallery at 74 Kingsland Road on 3rd February and runs until the 28th.
