Tom Hunter's new work for this exhibition takes as its subject the lives of the ordinary residents of Hackney, as reported in local newspapers. These often startling stories are told in carefully staged photographs derived from Renaissance paintings. Hunter's reputation has been established with a series of engaging, puzzling and provocative photographic reworkings of paintings from the past. Tom Hunter won the Kobal Photographic Portrait Award at the National Portrait Gallery in 1998. His winning work, 'Woman reading a Possession Order', was a beautifully crafted photograph based upon a painting by the 17th-century Dutch master, Johannes Vermeer.
