| Chris Burden | Metropolis II |  

I first came across the work of Chris Burden (artist) about 10 years ago. Ever since then I have been struck by his ambition to create work that pushes the boundaries of what we imagine to be art. Metropolis II is no exception. I urge you to watch this little film until the end, it’s quite fascinating. Enjoy!

A & G Taylor | A Strange Story

In 2003 I bought and refurbished a 300 square metre warehouse in an industrial yard in South East London in which I still live and work. The building has allowed me to work comfortably as a photographer with my print room, small studio, equipment storage etc. Then a few years ago I attended a historical talk on Forest Hill where the building is located. The chap who was speaking mentioned briefly the ‘old photographic works’ at Victoria Works, which is where I live! So, it turns out that my house (warehouse) was once owned by the largest photographic company in the world, A+G Taylor. They lived in Forest Hill and ran part of their business from my building from 1860 to 1917. During those years they managed to become photographers to Queen Victoria and because of that their business flourished. They had studios from as far as away as New York, Philadelphia and Boston to Paris and just about every city in between. I have been collecting their photographs for a few years now with the idea of a small exhibition. Above are a few of their pictures that remind me of my series ‘From The Garden’.
