Visit to Manchester Art Gallery-Mark Leckey – Work and Leisure
Whilst in Manchester I visited the Manchester Art Gallery. They had an exhibition by Mark Leckey, a Turner Prize winner.
The exhibition did not contain Photographs. So why did I go? Well Mark , as part of his exhibition, uses video. Now that many DSLR’s are able to capture video I thought I would see how he does it.
The exhibition covered key moments in his career and covered parts of his life in Manchester including the Manchester dance and music scene.
It was interesting to see how the videos were shot and placed into his exhibition. I don’t know how they were shot.
I have read that many photographers are now taking videos as well as taking images as they are demanded by newspapers and news companies, I suppose that this has increased due to the internet, with papers also having news websites.
