Dee King’s début solo show ‘All the King’s Men’ showcases her body of work of the same name, an exploration of male’s with great achievements, accross a diverse range of professions, including; actors, artists, directors and writers, humanitarians and Queen’s Councillors. Among them, Christopher Richardson and William Burdett-Coutts – both major contributors and instigators of the Edinburgh Fringe, Sir Roy Strong – former director of the National Portrait Gallery and the V&A.

King captures the persona of her sitters through a subtle but intimate exchange between photographer and subject, she seeks to unravel the hidden depths that transcend the various layers of masculinity that cloak today’s man. The project sets out to engage with these accomplished, respected male figures, who give so much to their disciplines but may be relatively unknown to the public. Through this engagement, King utilises the moments of intimacy to capture a moment of honesty in her sitters. The portraits form an impressive series of faces, expressions and reactions.
