‘Goal Posts, England’ 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. Quintessentially British (this could never be New York!), ‘Goal Posts, England’ depicts a football goal under a grey sky, nestling beneath weeping willows on a freshly striated lawn.
Pexton has slightly diluted the colour, in a way that accentuates both the lush verdure of the English countryside and its perennially dismal weather - and all in the single snap of an isolated football pitch: sheer genius.
