Greek-born, London-based artist Aristotle Roufanis presents his critically acclaimed "Alone Together" series at London Art Fair (stand G38). This is the first time the series is shown in the UK, following its recent presentations in Mexico City and Miami Beach.
"Alone Together" is an ongoing photographic project by Aristotle Roufanis that deals with the phenomenon of urban isolation and our human need for togetherness. Each work in the series is a super high resolution photograph created through meticulous editing and printed in large size as to allow the viewer to immerse themselves in the urban landscape it depicts.
Swiss media platform Kapaw has produced a short video about the series, which you can watch here: https://www.facebook.com/kapawmedia/videos/1987522427930138/
"Alone Together" has been featured in The British Journal of Photography, one of the world’s oldest and most respected photography magazines. A photo from the series series was also shortlisted in an open call judged by MoMA curator Katerina Stathopoulou, on Life Framer photography platform. And the curators of Behance, one of the world’s largest online communities for art and design, have selected the series to be featured on the website’s front page in September 2017.
