Marcus Davies, ‘Broadgate Chessboard, London’, 1991, Gallery Vassie

This photograph is a hand printed silver gelatin print, printed by Marcus Davies.

Series: These distinctive black and white images are an oblique interpretation principally, of the ‘figure’ in both cityscape and landscape in the world around him. For ten years Davies travelled throughout Europe, capturing scenes from his own characteristic viewpoint. Taken from a high and detached vantage point, Davies’s photographs catch reality off-guard and report back from the abstract corners of unmitigated sensation. Characters captured in these scenes become elements of a wider composition, where superfluous details are stripped to reveal a timeless image, contributing to his unique style.

Signature: Signed, numbered & titled in pencil verso
