‘Coffee Cart, New York’ 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.
‘Coffee Cart, New York’ depicts a line of people queueing for a coffee on a snowy morning in New York City. Pexton normalises the iconic metropolis, stripping it of its monumentality and glamour, and offering, instead, an image of a place that feels real. There is a beauty in this gesture, which is matched by Pexton’s use of grainy film, to create an evocative vignette of everyday life in New York.
