about

To mark the closure of the Queen Elizabeth Hall, Purcell and Hayward Gallery in 2015, Platform 4 undertook a series of conversations with people who had intimate connections with the building: the staff, past and present.

By asking them to think of a special place to be photographed - a place with a particular meaning to them - a different part of the building is illuminated to us, and something about the person who chose it. These photographs were then presented as a series of portraits, with the accompaniment of this music, and the words of the interviewees.

The music, like the portraits, is a series of snapshots - short miniatures in which the person, the place, and their shared history can all assume prominence. Solo piano versions are also included.
