Further to his photographs of the unseen world of the iconic museums and attractions in New York, we are delighted to announce the second UK exhibition of work by Matthew Pillsbury - LONDON.
Freezing the passage of time is the camera's most conventional trick. American artist, Matthew Pillsbury, takes this further and his photographs capture the experience of time, both physically and psychologically. Utilizing his definitive style of natural light and long exposure these new images capture the human traffic through the extraordinary and unseen spaces of London's business and cultural institutions and private rooms. The figures are absorbed in and illuminated by, back-lit displays and incidental lighting. Transitory and shadow-like as they pass against the permanence of the surroundings; the diverse environment and architecture of London.
Born and raised in France, Matthew Pillsbury has studied at both Yale University in 1995 and New York's School of Visual Arts. Pillsbury's work has been widely exhibited throughout the US and Europe and is held in several collections including the Whitney, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Guggenheim, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Art in Houston, the San Francisco MOMA and Elton John's Photography collection in Atlanta. In 2005, PDN voted him one of the top 30 emerging artists and he won the 2007 HSBC award for photography.
