This fascinating exhibition has no language barriers; it works from Australia to Europe, USA, Asia the Middle East & everywhere in between. Richard Simpkin has been able to capture his life in photos over twenty four consecutive years, that itself is impressive but then you add the people that he has been photographed with & it adds another dimension to it.
You not only see him change throughout the years but you also see certain celebrities change as well, fashions come & go, celebrities come & go, you get to see the everlasting legends & the one hit wonders of the day.
Today with technology being what it is, everyone is getting their photos on their phones & other devices.
The Richard & Famous exhibition started long before the invention of camera phones, it captures an innocence between fan & celebrity that today has been lost.
The exhibition has come at the perfect time as almost everyone these days has a photo or two with a celebrity, but it is hard to deny that Richard Simpkin undoubtedly has one of the most fascinating self portrait exhibitions in the world today.
