Angela Wynter @ Underexposed by Franklyn Rodgers
This month marks the arrival of two fantastic photography exhibitions at the National Portrait Gallery. The main idea behind these exhibitions is to give much-needed exposure to the Black acting talent which resides in this country. It's no secret that celebrated thespians such as Chiwetel Ejiofor, David Harewood and Sophie Okonedo, have all had to up-sticks and relocate to the USA, or risk being confined to a life-time of caricature roles: cue, Gus from Eastenders. The two exhibitions are unique in their own right. 'Underexposed' by Franklyn Rodgers presents a series of stunning black and white portraits. While 'Want to see more of me' by Donald MacLellan features his subjects photographed in a beautiful looking stately home.
