‘Fire Island, 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.
Leaving behind the metropolis for ‘Fire Island, New York’, Pexton photographs the stormy waves at Fire Island. There is exceptional clarity in the ocean detail - every splash and every film of surf is pin sharp - while the foggy sky abstracts the hovering sea birds and the people on the beach. Pexton has produced a stillness out of the tempestuous scene, which is beautiful in its contemplative aesthetic.
