For one week only, The Coningsby Gallery presents photographic works by Andrew Stanney.

About

Andrew Stanney has used an extraordinary visual archival history left upon the walls of forgotten and undeveloped tube passageways to create fine art photographs that, although qualifying as a visual record, possess their own individual gravity and narrative within the hidden and the exposed.

Stanney’s tenacity in creating his artworks is a narrative in itself, he had a suspicion his subject matter lay within the tunnels.  Research, willing station staff who showed him the evidence, TFL denying all knowledge (then confessing) to the tunnels’ existence, the negotiation of a license to publish, a paid chaperone, (informal) weekend visits, the carrying of experimental lighting and heavy equipment with the keys to the door, Stanney has proved himself as a contemporary journeyman artist.

The exhibition also features interior images of stations devoid of human presence. Equipped with a Hasselblad camera and shot in medium format, Stanney realises a symmetry and depth of field similar to the visual exactitude found in the films of Stanley Kubrick.
