Kazem Hakimi & Henry Underhill
Portraits from Oxford - Archives old and new
This temporary exhibition at the Museum of Oxford brings together portraits of Oxford citizens, taken about a century apart.
Henry Underhill, a grocer with a shop on the High Street in the late 19th/early 20th century, took striking photographic portraits of his friends and family in their moments of leisure. Some 100 years later, Kazem Hakimi, owner of the well-loved chip shop on Iffley Road, takes similarly candid photos of his customers, quickly capturing them as they’re waiting for their order.
The exhibition was co-curated by Kazem Hakimi (photographer) and Marta Lomza (MOX Community Engagement & Exhibitions Curator)
