Burroughs, Lynch and Warhol - The photographer's Gallery - London

Three discrete shows, three figures of huge cultural importance, between them producing unquestionably seminal works across numerous media. Lynch presents a series of gritty, (Lynchian) B&W shots of abandoned industrial sites accompanied by a soundtrack reminiscent of one he made for The Air Is On Fire at Fondation Cartier in 2007. Warhol's photographs are clearly the materia prima of his print works. They verify beautifully a quite genuine fascination with his chosen subjects, later elevated by his own fame beyond the banality he so appreciated. The real surprise here is Burroughs. Aside from the sheer range of experimentation both intellectual and pictorial demonstrated in this show, he seemed able to produce snapshots of disarming, fragility and beauty. There is a luminous, delicate quality to some of the most impromtu images combined with a formal sense of composition which is entirely unexpected and oddly moving. This is a really fine piece of curation and offers perhaps the most original insight into the thinking of this much examined artist I have encountered. All three shows are fascinating and complement one another beautifully. Essential viewing. Until March the 30th.
