Film’s not Dead Printroom announce "HIATUS", A solo exhibition from Street/Documentary photographer Dan Wood.
The exhibition is presented by Film's not Dead Printroom at 13 Mount Pleasant London WC1X 0AR running from the 3rd until the 25th of June 2013.
The show will display a wide variety of Dan’s insightful yet gritty street photography, from his travels across the world depicting people, life and scenes that he’s encountered. The exhibition will be a small but an exquisite presentation of 20 black and white 16×12 prints, all hand printed on ILFORD MULTIGRADE paper by the man himself, from ILFORD film stock.
Dan said, “First thing that comes to mind is ‘Hiatus’ as I had grown up working in the family business and I started to break away when I discovered travel. So more and more I started taking long breaks from work to go travelling.”
He continued to say, "I have always been dedicated to black and white photography using film and traditional methods. I have not been swayed by the digital revolution, if anything, it has confirmed my loyalty to film. For me, it is in the darkroom where the work of the artist meets the work of the artisan. Personally I feel it is this that sets the traditional photographer apart from the modern day digital photographer.”
Film's not Dead commented by saying, "Not only does he manage to capture fantastic street scenes from around the world, he ties this in with a sensitive approach to perhaps overlooked objects, and all of this is held together by his amazing printing. A man who makes his own prints is a man that knows what it is to understand light, whether it be capturing or distributing, Dan Wood is that man. His photographs/prints dance over the lines of classic reportage and fine art, exactly what you would expect from somebody who controls every aspect of their process."
