‘Window in Derelict House’ 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. Strikingly beautiful, ‘Window in Derelict House’ depicts the view from inside a tumbled-down building.
Dark and dingy inside the house, Pexton has positioned the camera so that the window frames the hazy, out of focus vista of dense leaves, sparkling in the sunlight, like a painting on a gallery wall. Sublimely peaceful and contemplative, Pexton captures the oasis of the natural world through the architectural motif with masterful sensitivity to light, colour and composition.
