The limited edition print, True Stories 8
, 2000, was created as part of the series Ten Artists, Ten Images
, a portfolio of ten photographs commissioned by Tate Publishing to celebrate the opening of Tate Modern in 2000. Ten contemporary artists working with photography were invited to make an artwork inspired by the Bankside building and its surroundings. The resulting artworks chart different aspects of the site’s development from power station to museum of modern art under the direction of Swiss architects Herzog and de Meuron.
Hannah Collins’ photograph shows a view of the London skyline from the Tate Modern. St Paul’s Cathedral and surrounding architecture across the Thames river are surrounded by tower cranes, as if the city is under construction. The edition of 50 is signed and numbered by the artist and is unframed.
