Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin (1970-; 1971-)
Artist of 18 portraits
Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin have been working together for the last eight years. Based in London, they began taking photographs together while working as art directors on Colors magazine, which they relaunched for Italian publishers Benetton. Their first exhibition Trust was shown at the Hasselblad Gallery in Sweden. A book of this work was published under the same name, by Trolley, who have since published two more books by the photographers: Ghetto, a study of twelve closed communities around the world, for which they were awarded the Vic Odden Award by the Royal Photographic Society, and Mr Mkhize's Portrait, about South Africa ten years after the end of apartheid.
