Study for a Portrait of 'Simon Ironing', Thomas Zummer, 2005
Touchstone is a display featuring a single photograph on our Eranda Studio Floor.
Visitors are invited to respond to the photograph, through writing and drawing, using pencils and cards provided. This programme links with The Photographers' Gallery's wider educational emphasis on visual literacy.
The current display features a study, by the philosopher and artist Thomas Zummer, relating to a wider series 'Portraits of Robots'. For this series, Zummer creates drawings of photographs of robots. The photographs date from the 1940s to the present day.
A wider selection of Thomas Zummer's work is on view until 5 June at Drawing Room as part of the exhibition Double Take: Drawing and Photography, organised to coincide with the the exhibition of the same name at The Photographers' Gallery.
