‘Portrait Trouvé’, an exhibition by local photographer and Currell employee David Gwinnutt, is currently on display in our Islington office and was celebrated by a launch evening at the end of April.

The exhibition is a selection of portraits taken in Islington and east London from the 1980’s through to the present day. The images portray some of the most iconic people of our time and reflect an interesting contrast between different eras.

David was inspired to become a photographer while working as an assistant to Brian Moore, to whose studio David Bailey was a frequent visitor. David started taking photos of his contemporaries on the (now notorious) club scene of the time, producing documentary like photographs of his subjects in intimate settings.
