Rob Ball: Dreamlands
Until 2 AugPrint Sales Gallery presentsDreamlands, a new body of work by British photographer Rob Ball. The project comprises a series of tintypes created on the site of the disused Dreamland amusement park in Margate, which reopens to the public this Friday.Rob Ball: „Our image of Margate is one of repair rather than a renaissance – something that was broken and is slowly being put back together again. This, I think, is echoed in my own work, where cracks, dust, the materiality and vulnerability of each plate is tangible.“Admission freeOn Sat 4 Jul from 10.00-17.00 Rob will be staging a special Portrait Session using the vintage tintype technique. £250 per unique portrait. Please contact Print Sales Gallery on 020 7807 9300 to book.Dreamland (Portrait), 2013-2015from the seriesDreamlands
