Elliot Wilcox: Walls 2014

Elliott Wilcox is a London based, British photographer who studied MA Photographic Studies at the University of Westminster. He first exhibited with Crane Kalman as part of the Cream 10 Graduate Showcase in 2009, featuring early work from his celebrated ‘Courts’ series. Wilcox has now completed his second major series ‘Walls’, which was recently exhibited at the Bau-Xi Photo Gallery in Toronto. The new work continues to explore Wilcox’s interest in minimalism and abstraction through its focus on the outwardly simplest and uniform of subject matters.

Franck Bohbot: House of Books 2015

We are pleased to present a beautiful new body of work, House of Books, by French photographer, Franck Bohbot. The series, which has been receiving much critical and press acclaim, is a visual compendium of magnificent libraries, each space selected for its distinct grandeur, reflective of the fantastic, complex beauty contained within their shelves. The series was begun in Paris, continued in Rome and Providence, Rhode Island and will encompass libraries all around the world (with libraries in the UK to be photographed later this year), from the monumental to the intimate, the ancient to the contemporary.
