TV dinners and living room deer like you've never seen them before
Leading East London photographic gallery theprintspace will play host to a fantastic exhibition of still life and commercial photography from acclaimed photographer Ed James.
Formerly one half of advertising photography giants Giblin & James between 1996 to 2009, and now working alone, James' photography is creative, bizarre and extraordinary. His clients include leading brands such as Nokia, Renault, Barclays and Mastercard.
Amongst the collection of photography is a series on TV dinners, shooting the dinners under photographic studio light, paying attention to every detail and showing people who usually eat this food by the light of the television set, what it really looks like.
Another photograph captures a wooden deer head in a living room, illustrating the irony of hunting. The wallpaper shows the animal in its environment; with the wooden trophy suggesting the hunter cannot quite do the deed of killing the deer.
Ed James' exhibition opens with a private view at theprintspace gallery from 7pm on July 22nd and continues 9am-7pm Monday-Friday until August 17th and is photography not to be missed.
