InstaBAM! - Richard Simpkin
Pre-Instagram and long before your auntie was duck facing, Richard Simpkin was quietly building the world's largest collection of celebrity selfies. Over 27 years the Australian has collected over 2000 photographs with celebs. By 2000, Simpkin had enough photos for his exhibition 'Richard and Famous'.
The exhibition explores our burgeoning celebrity culture and its increasingly blurred boundaries.
The show does not merely chart the fashions and faces of a multitude of stars from Audrey Hepburn to Muhammad Ali, but also documents Simpkin's own journey from teenager to a man in his thirties.
