'Pictures of People' is the first UK solo show by Brazilian Vik Muniz. Presented as photographs, Muniz's portraits are drawings with a difference. From caviar and chocolate to diamonds and peanut butter, his artists' palette is nothing if not astonishing; breathing new life into the iconic, where Marlene Dietrich sparkles in diamonds, and Elvis is composed of chocolate.
