Photo London 15

August 24, 2015

Recently I was honoured to be commissioned by Photo London to create the award for 'Master of Photography 2015' Sebastião Salgado, a photographer I've always admired.
By deconstructing the Photo London logo and showcasing its shapes and contours, I was able to create a Kandinsky-inspired piece that used glass, richelite, silver, copper and walnut. Only from above can you see the logo, otherwise the piece is seemingly abstract. I really enjoyed using different materials in a larger scale, while still expressing my style of work with strong lines and soft curves. The lens I used magnifies the silver structure and copper inlay below, creating a distortion while linking the glass with that of Salgado's camera lens.

The exhibition itself was inspiring and it was a privilege to have played a part in such an iconic event in the world of photography. For those of you who haven't had the chance to see it, Sebastiao Salgado: The Salt of the Earth is an amazing tribute to the man himself.
