During the Pop Art era, Jim Dine's works largely involved things one might find in a hardware store: saws, hammers and screwdrivers, to name a few. He later became well known for his "gravure" print-making. But it's his recent experimentation with photography and digital image-making that are featured in Jim Dine: Photographs. Alan Cristea Gallery, 31 Cork Street, London. Information: 0171-439 1866. Until 23 December.
