ABOUT THE WORK
This colourful still life is created of products the photographer found on Dalston’s Ridley Road Market, located in the London borough of Hackney.
‘Over more than a year, living between my studio and the market I collected every type of organic and inanimate object and debris, found or given to me by the sellers: plastic bags, worn, mouldy planks, clothes, wigs, dust. These found objects were to form a distillation of the market as still life sculptures, a reassembly of its raw elements with my own hands, reworking the anatomies of its characters attempting to capture and communicate the essence of this unique place .’ – Lorenzo Vitturi
