A walk around Tate Britain #photography #Lowry #Fautrier (1)

We went to the Tate primarily to see the marvellous Lowry exhibition. It was very busy but we loved it. One cannot take pictures in special exhibitions. Elsewhere only natural light  which suits me fine. Later I was gratified to visit the Prints and Drawings section – hidden treasure in the Clore building – to see magnificent prints by Jean Fautrier, who Jean Paulhan described as “l’Enragé”.

I shot Raw with my Nikon D3000 and 18-55mmm Nikkor lens, some in Monochrome. Of course natural light (no flash).

I am grateful to the Tate for allowing us the sheer pleasure of discovery. I wish to thank the curator of Prints and Drawings for her help and kindness.
