Three of the twentieth century’s most influential photographers explore identity and self-expression in ARTIST ROOMS Self Evidence: Photographs by Woodman, Arbus and Mapplethorpe at the Scottish National Portrait Gallery. From Francesca Woodman’s experimental images to Diane Arbus’ raw, compassionate street photography to the touching self-portraits that track the final years of Robert Mapplethorpe’s life – each of these artists has used the camera to tackle questions of performance and truth, investigating the space between who we are, and how we choose to represent ourselves.
