CHEESE slices and animal heads are the type of headgear appearing in an

exhibition called the Masked Ball.

The photographs in the upcoming exhibition at the Viewfinder Photography Gallery in Peyton Place, Greenwich, range from the disturbing to the plain silly.

Artists, who will be exhibiting their pieces, from March 18 until April 5, include Laura Hensser, who takes self-portraits wearing mundane objects on her face, including red jelly, cheese slices and a map.

Stuart Southwell presents portraits of three generations, dressed for a variety of roles, from a general to a doctor, wearing distorted, disturbing masks.

The series by James Reid, was shot on location in big brand boutique stores in Paris and shows smartly dressed humans wearing animal heads.

Curator Louise Forrester said: "Although each photographer is using masks in portraiture, the results in each series is markedly different.

"Some unsettling, some funny, there is something here for everyone.
