An extraordinary work covering 45 years of photographs of one woman by one man, Portrait of the Artist's Wife was begun when Sally MacLeod and Marcus Reichert were 18 years old. The beauty of these images is captivating in itself but the intimate relationship between artist and subject is revealed with such directness and subtlety that we are swept along from one encounter - and consequent moment of illumination - to the next. Epic in its steadfast determination to define the poetry that exists in such a collaboration, Portrait of the Artist's Wife is a profoundly exhilarating visual experience.
