The Photographers' Gallery, London : presents New Editions by Vee Speers, Edgar Martins and Maurizio Anzeri. An interview with Gemma Barnett, Print Sales Manager

We were slightly shocked when we heard that the Photographer's Gallery will be closing down. Alas, it is not a rumour, the gallery is closing for good indeed. However, only for 14 months. In late September, the circumstantial renovations will commence, which will bestow the building with three new interiors and a new façade – small preview enclosed

Some exhibitions will be postponed, events will be planned outside of the gallery. In the meantime, the print sales division has published new editions. And who better to introduce them than Gemma Barnett, the print sales manager in person.

- What made you choose Vee Speers, Edgar Martins and Maurizio Anzeri as they all alienate/customize their work?

Our New Editions page has been created with the intention of showing clients the most recent work made by our represented photographers. Vee Speers, Edgar Martins and Maurizio Anzeri have all released new work in the last few months and we decided to begin the New Editions with these bodies of work.

- Is there a trend of strange, yet morbid forecast pictures?

They do all have some interesting similarities - Maurizio Anzeri and Edgar Martins have created fiction and fantasy from the real world or in Maurizio's case, 'real' people. Vee Speers has always made use of the playful and theatrical in her work and this new series is an extension of her unique vision. All three artists have adopted very different techniques to present their eerie and arguably disturbing worlds. The presentation of three artists working in this way may seem to demonstrate a trend but it was more of a curatorial decision than a discovery of an overriding trent.

- In your opinion, which of all the new images will be the one the most in demand?

Each of the artists already has an established and growing reputation and they will be likely be in demand by different collectors. All three artists works in very limited editions but Maurizio Anzeri creates unique pieces that bring their own appeal. Vee Speers and Edgar Martins are already widely collected and have numerous awards between them. Collectors that have previously bought their works are likely to be interested to see their most recent series.

What a nice way to tide over the gallery's renovation.
