Jo Spence : The Final Project Exhibition Review

In 1990 Jo Spence was diagnosed with leukaemia. She died in 1992.

The Final Project took shape during these two painful, final years; recording the photographer’s contemplation of her own death.

The exhibition hosted by Richard Saltoun Gallery and curated by David Campany, presents a selection of photographs from The Final Project. The display alternates self-portraits with allegorical compositions and double-exposure images. The later of which appear as the most striking development of Spence’s practice: the photographer manipulates images taken before her illness by exposing one slide on top of another.
