  • Portraits


Ansaphone is a collection of video portraits recorded on a specially made spinning camera. However, each person’s portrait or appearance in the video is determined by the length of the ansaphone message they have left on George’s machine at one time or another. As it is based on George’s ansamachine, the people in it are chiefly friends. Most prominent are Martin Amis, Paul Smith and Suzanne Moore, who have lain down in order for George to take their portrait.
