Gillian Wearing

My grip on life is rather loose! Gillian Wearing









Gillian Wearing’s photography interests me because of what it has sparked through the media. Although from the 1960’s they have a timelessness. The photographs above are from her  Signs that Say What You Want Them To Say and Not Signs that Say What Someone Else Wants You To Say collection but on the social campaigning of the internet this format is being used more and more frequently to send messages and gain awareness. A way of putting a face/ identity on to a social campaign, making it more powerful as we are focused to look into the eyes of the people campaigning.
