Peter Anderson: Bright and Risen Angels
Loud colours. Big words. Edges curving out of the frame. London based photographer Peter Anderson uses a Widelux camera to warp the world around him.
Distortion fuels the photographs – from car parts to the drag racing strip – what you see isn’t always what it seems. Anderson makes photographs, he doesn't just take them. Details of the Mojave desert are captured in grayscale silver gelatin prints – flashes of black and white shown among over-saturated digital prints. Colours twist the scenery of places closer to home too. From beach-side graffiti to the agricultural machine-scape of rural Normandy, France.
San Mei gallery presents Bright and Risen Angels, an exhibition of new digital inkjet prints by photographer Peter Anderson, alongside a selection of his existing body of work made in the darkroom.
The exhibition will be accompanied by an artist talk and a screening of ‘Available Light’ by John Edwards, a film made about Anderson’s photographs and process.
