Exhibition in London: The Sweetest Taboo by Frieke Janssens

For the first time ever, I'm exhibiting my best-known work in London in collaboration with the Ingrid Deuss Gallery. The exhibition will run from 12 to 22 April @TheBrickLaneGallery-TheAnnexe and will showcase some of the work from my latest book: The Sweetest Taboo, published by Lannoo.

London, UK National Portrait Gallery: Victorian Giants: The Birth of Art Photography

This major new exhibition brings together, for the first time, the works of four of the most celebrated figures in art photography, Lewis Carroll (1832–98), Julia Margaret Cameron (1815–79), Oscar Rejlander (1813–75) and Clementina Hawarden (1822-65). These four artists would come to embody the very best in photography of the Victorian era. Their experimental approach to picture-making and radical attitudes towards photography have informed artistic practice ever since.
Featuring striking portraits of sitters such as Charles Darwin, Alice Liddell, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Thomas Carlyle, George Frederick Watts, Ellen Terry and Alfred, Lord Tennyson.
