Wed, 1 Mar 2017, 09:00 – Mon, 17 Apr 2017, 22:00 GMT
Mark Haddon is an internationally respected novelist. He is best known for The Curious Incident of the Dog in Night-Time (2003), written and illustrated by Haddon, it has sold nearly three million copies in the UK alone. Since launching the award-winning book it is now featured in exam syllabuses across the UK, and has been adapted for a stage production, which has been seen by an audience totalling over one million.
Haddon has always been fascinated by making pictures of people and writing alike. He believes that his life has come full circle and admits that it’s portraits which fascinate him more than anything else; partly because he is fascinated by people more than anything else; partly because portraits are so difficult; and partly because, when you can really capture someone, something mysterious happens.
His exhibition will reveal portraits of alongside artists, academics, family members and friends.
