two shows at different ends of a train ride - Face to Face at the Herbert in Coventry had a wide range of intriguing images of people throughout time - Paula Rego's striking image of Germain Greer has stayed with me and at the Barbican Sophie Clements's Shall I This Time Hold You? is mesmerising and Mesmerising by Richard Mosse holds you.  

Seeing his work in Venice was a haunting highlight - if you get the chance - see the work created in the Congo. Also check out Lion - you will cry like a baby!! especially if you wait till the end within the credits.
