An exhibition of black and white silver
gelatin prints of the Square Mile by Anthony Jones.
Anthony Jones was born in London in 1962.
Since the late 1980's he has developed his fine
art photography practise working with a Hasselblad camera and
black and white silver gelatin prints.
Though many of his black and white photographs were
taken in the city of London, they are about the spirit of a place,
not the geographical location itself. The aim being to convey
a sense of mystery about the figures and to question their purpose.
His work follows a modernist tradition, creating
the city in dark shades, a haunting place. Roger Watson, curator
at the Fox Talbot Museum has compared his work to that of Bill
Brandt and Paul Strand.
His work has been published widely including the
British Journal of Photography, Victoria and Albert Museum Magazine
and features in many corporate and private collections.
In 2011 his work was exhibited at the George Eastman
House and featured on the blog of award winning book and exhibition
designer Elizabeth Avedon.
