The Fitzrovia Gallery is proud to open its doors to the public with 'Andrew Stanney: Photographic Works'. The exhibition brings together a selection of digital and hand printed silver gelatine prints, dating from different stages of Stanney's artistic practice in his native Lancashire and, more recently, London. Exploring the theme of Psychogeography, Stanney documents settings as he encounters them by chance. In accordance with the method of Psychogeography, defined by Guy Debord in 1955 as 'the study of the precise laws and specific effects of the geographical environment, consciously organized or not, on the emotions and behavior of individuals', Stanney's creative process is an attempt to record in pictures the individual universe of subjectivity. Depicting fragments of urban backdrops, such as remanants of wall-posters, often torn to the unrecogniazable, the individual prints are expressions of time passed and the continuous interaction between the city and its population.
'Photographic Works' is the artist's third solo exhibition (past exhibitions include St Pancras Hospital and Red Gallery, both 2013) and the first to include works from the artist's collaboration with Hasselblad Camera.
