Photographs By Julia Fullerton-Batten at NPG

The National Portrait Gallery presents A Picture of Health:

Photographs By Julia Fullerton-Batten, on view through September 10, 2006. The health sector is the subject of a highly topical display of sixteen newly commissioned large format colour photographs. A Picture of Health profiles some of the outstanding men and women who have shaped healthcare at the beginning of the 21st century. Julia Fullerton-Batten's intriguing portraits include key figures working for the National Health Service as leaders, clinicians, and Primary Carers. Campaigners and Government policy advisors are also represented.

All the subjects have made a difference to our lives. Fullerton-Batten's cinematic approach captures her sitters in settings that provide an insight into their working environment. Sir Iain Chalmers, the founder of the Cochrane Collaboration, is photographed in his office, balancing on a footstall and surrounded by more than two hundred photographs of the colleagues who collaborated on this international project on the effects of healthcare. Marjorie Wallace, Founder and Chief Executive of SANE, is depicted as a romantic crusader wearing blue silk and sitting at a grand piano at the charity's research centre in Oxford. Other portraits on display include Claire Rayner in a recording studio, Nick Partridge at the London Lighthouse, and Lord Winston who is photographed in his London home.
