I just imagined one day playing all of these portraits in a space together with the same soundtrack in a homage to Warhol.” – ZOOBS ANSARI

Extract from an extended interview with Dr. Jean Wainwright, art historian and Professor of Contemporary Art and Photography, and artist Zoobs Ansari, London 2019.
