100 years after the triumph of photography, the Centre of Attention presents A Man, A Woman, A Machine. This is an exhibition with a twist: an acerbic, witty take on the age-old story of the impact of a beautiful woman on a man.

While its message may be on the redeeming power of true love, A Man, A Woman, A Machine has something to say on Romance, Modern Art and the social cut-and-thrust of the upwardly mobile nouveau riche, and does so with sparkling humour, real visual dexterity and against a backdrop of ravishing ideas. Photography has never seemed so dazzling.

Oreet Ashery, Shaheen Merali & Manuel Vason Oreet Ashery is a Jewish female live artist. Shaheen Merali is a black male artist. Manuel Vason, a former assistant to Nick Knight and live art photographer, witnesses their morphing into each other's ethnic and gender identity.

Gary O Dwyer is a painter, video artist and photographer. He directs and has curated many of the Centre of Attentions exhibitions. In 2001, he exhibited at Studio Voltaire in Clapham and at the Notting Hill Arts Club.
