Coronet Inside Out: Joanna Vestey & At The Bus
Photographic artist Joanna Vestey returns to Coronet Inside Out with MASKED, a series of limited edition prints created in collaboration with AT The Bus.
Masked: AT The Bus
Grayson Perry, Philip Pullman, Dawn French, Juliet Stevenson, Cornelia Parker and Jenny Saville are among 24 leading figures in the arts, education, communications and law, shown wearing their masks for a series of portraits by award-winning photographer Joanna Vestey.
Aiming to raise £150,000, all proceeds from the sale of the MASKED limited-edition prints will go towards the vital work of AT The Bus, a charity delivering a school-based programme of art as therapy to young people aged 7-18 in Oxfordshire and London. Sessions take place during the school day in a purpose-designed therapeutic studio space in a double-decker bus located in school grounds.
The portraits explore the theme of communication during COVID-19. Each sitter is shown in their own space, captured in a moment shared with Vestey abiding by the social-distancing regulations sitting two metres away, with pared back equipment and using only natural light.
