‘White Pigeon, Brooklyn’ 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.
Fantastically symbolic, ‘White Pigeon, Brooklyn’ depicts a gritty urban scene - grey asphalt, graffiti’d walls, erupting weeds - as a striking, white pigeon flutters across the frame.
Filled with religious overtones, the image is reminiscent of the traditional Christian dove: a modern apparition in the streets of Brooklyn.
