Made Up Love Song documents a new work by internationally acclaimed artist Bettina von Zwehl - a captivating series of 34 miniature photographic portraits that record her evolving relationship with sitter Sophia, a V&A gallery assistant. These intimate and beautiful portraits are presented together here for the first time, with an introductory essay by photography curator David Chandler that discusses the philosophy and history of portraiture, as well as von Zwehl's inspiration from the V&A's extensive collection - from Hans Holbein the Younger to John Burrell.

Published to accompany the display of this arresting photographic series, Made Up Love Song is an elegantly produced study of von Zwehl's methodology and sensibilities, and an introduction to the practice of an innovative contemporary artist.
