An extraordinary exhibition of large scale work by the acclaimed British documentary photographer Paul Reas. A project made in response to the regeneration of the Elephant and Castle in South London.
This powerful exhibition consists of very large-scale photographic prints dramatically lit within the large gallery at LCC. The images combine fraught and tense street photographs with calmer portraits, all taken within the Elephant. These contrast with two series of still life details: one of incense cans bought in the open air market and one of abandoned furniture collected by the photographer from the surrounding streets. The resultàÂ is a quirky, personal, highly original and deeply involving body of work.
The exhibition forms part of The Elephant Vanishes project, a long-term documentation of the regeneration of the Elephant and Castle, directed by Patrick Sutherland.
The exhibition is curated by Paul Reas, Patrick Sutherland and Monica Takvam.
