Yorkshire Sculpture Park presents Anne Purkiss

Anne Purkiss: Sculptors
4 March–4 June 2017
Upper Space, YSP Centre

“I see photographs as documents of people, recorded in the context of their environment and their time. The interpretation of my subjects, or my part of being creative, lies in selecting the context, the environment and the moment in time.”

Anne Purkiss is a photographer whose portfolio includes portraits of artists, scientists and public figures as well as photographs of artwork. This exhibition presents a collection of Purkiss’ portrait photographs of sculptors, all of whom have exhibited at Yorkshire Sculpture Park (YSP) over the last 40 years.

The exhibition documents artists at various stages in their careers, covering three decades, through photographs borne out of Purkiss’ personal interest in sculptors as a subject and those commissioned as part of her regular freelance work for press and government agencies, museums and galleries.
