Kar photographed Riley at her second exhibition at Gallery One, 16 North Audley Street, London, in September 1963. This was the final show before Victor Musgrave closed the gallery, saying 'It has been very good but it's not very creative. And I don't like the atmosphere of the gallery world as much as I used to'.
