ANDY GOTTS: THANK YOU, BUT NO
Maddox Gallery is pleased to present Thank You, But No, a solo exhibition by British photographer Andy Gotts at Maddox Gallery Westbourne Grove.
One of only a select few to be awarded an MBE for his services to photography, Andy Gotts has spent the past three decades photographing some of the world’s most famous faces. However, Gotts himself is the first to admit that the early days of his career as a celebrity photographer were far from easy with a seeming endless wave of rejection letters. Now, three decades later, Andy Gotts' Thank You, But No is a retrospective and a celebration of his most notable 'rejections', and how he turned them into his most illustrious monochromatic portraits.
“Rejection is the grain of sand in an oyster, that niggling irritation which ultimately produces the pearl” - Andy Gotts
Thank You, But No, is running alongside Faces Of Soccer Aid, an auction of signed celebrity portraits by Andy Gotts with all proceeds donated to UNICEF. For more information about Faces Of Soccer Aid, please click here.
