Nick Riley Bentham began assisting photographers while living in New York during the summer of 2008.
Since then he has worked for photographers such as Peter Lindberg, Collier Schorr and Brett Lloyd for Brands such as Dior, Gucci and Primark, publications such as Another, GQ and Vogue.
“The layout of the show explores the idea of how we interact with image in modern day society. Firstly the volume of works on display relates to the way we consume images at a touch of a button. Secondly the size of the works on display reminds the audience that while interacting with a device there is a wider world around you. This pokes fun at the idea of social media campaigns that use 100 megapixel medium format digital cameras or hand print 6x7 negatives only to create images that we view at low resolutions on our devices. Finally the caption distorts the context of the image. By associating the image with a brand does it give it more importance or diminish its worth?”
The show consists of seventy digital prints
105 x 148 mm on a 300 gsm silk stock in
