‘Times Sq, 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.
‘Times Sq, New York’ depicts what must be one of the most photographed spots in the world but, through Pexton’s lens, the area takes on a palpable immediacy that’s unfamiliar. Forget the iconic shots from movie scenes: here we are, transported to drizzly Times Square, where people pass the neon lights under their umbrellas.
By taking out the glamour, Pexton offers something real in the image of New York - a refreshing and novel depiction of the iconic city.
