Portrait of Jason Brown
This is the first work made for Cab Gallery that uses directly the taxi driver as subject matter. Set in the tip-up seat, the colour photograph is of Jason Brown, wearing a hat and coat and standing in front of a brick wall. Whilst on taxi journeys the passenger seldom learns very much about their driver, and can only form a picture from the back and what they see in the driver's rear-view mirror. Here they are unknowingly and unwittingly confronted by a very open straight-forward portrait of the curator of Cab Gallery.
