A London artist calls in the great photogram picture this weekend

Davies and Lattimore are well-suited to each other: Davies a solicitors, Lattimore an artist. They started their business together after learning in law that you had to have professional design qualifications to call yourself an artist. Her latest exhibition, such as it is, is called Mary Lattimore: Has Harp, Must Travel, and it turns out that she’s been wondering around all over east London this weekend, wishing away her melancholy by creating exhibition-piece-sized photograms.

The four prints, which are spaced about 45cm tall and around 70cm across, were made via separate pen-and-ink drawings, then assembled, in a contrasting, faint grey-white pattern. Their swirling, ethereal forms are produced by a computer (a Glue Stop!), and the result is magnificent. Someone unearths them on Sunday, and celebrates with red wine.
