‘Selfish' at The Dazed Gallery

The Dazed Gallery in London is capping off a year of creative and diverse exhibitions and events with a unique egotistical exhibition entitled ‘Selfish’ that is described as ‘absurd.’

The concept of ‘Selfish’ is to feature work from photographers "whose practices are so resolutely at odds with each other that the very idea of a ‘group’ show seems kind of absurd," explains John-Paul Pryor at Dazed Digital.

The inspiration behind ‘Selfish’ is a quote by photographer Damien Fry, who is featured in the exhibition as saying, well, that "people are all ultimately selfish."

"The photographer is the director and the executioner," explains Fry. "In a society where we are all driven to be more selfish and want more, we are the people who show you visually what you are supposed to want, and how you can go about getting it."

Selfish runs from November 20, 2008 until February 5, 2009 at The Dazed Gallery in London, UK.
