‘Beetle’ is a Giclée print by contemporary photographer David Pexton. Printed onto 300gsm Minuet Paper, the print is from a limited edition of 50 and is signed and numbered by the artist.
British-born, and now Brooklyn-based, contemporary photographer David Pexton is a master of the lens. His ardent passion for the city that never sleeps is infectious: roaming the metropolis, Pexton is able to capture every tiny detail of the urban space, or express the character of a passer-by in even the smallest gestural expression.
With an exceptional eye for colour and composition, Pexton’s work - which incorporates 35mm, Medium Format and Instant film - really packs a punch.
’Beetle’ depicts a black, retro VW Beetle, poised in the quiet suburban streets of North London. Against a sandy brick wall, and surrounded by green foliage, there is something majestic and peaceful about the print: a moment of nostalgic oasis in one of the world’s most chaotic, modern cities.
