Haunting hyperreality from Phillips, manipulating light and fading beauty in this experimental print series, a technical tour de force.


John Phillips says ‘In a world of increasing proliferation of photographic imagery and the recording of all aspects of our lives, there is a need to reclaim photography as a route to creating startling images. The Vanitas prints seek to reclaim the discarded and overlooked, and look to tradition in Western Art, particularly painting, and the theme of Vanitas – Mortality.’
