Mark Neville – London/Pittsburgh at Alan Cristea Gallery

25 November 2014
London/Pittsburgh is the latest exhibition by world-renowned British photographer Mark Neville – working at the intersection of art and documentary his socially focused projects incorporate photography, film and book publishing and are often based upon new research by expert sociologists.

London/Pittsburg is another such project, focusing upon work Neville undertook in 2012.  In the first project, a commission by New York Times Magazine which won him a nomination for the Pulitzer Prize, he documented the stark contrasts inherent in London society and subcultures and in the second, moved on to live amongst divergent communities in the industrial heartland of the US, creating work under commission by the Andy Warhol Museum.

Metro were thrilled to produce two large black and white prints and eleven large C type prints for the pairing of these two significant projects, Here is London and Braddock/Sewickley. Side-by-side for the first time they show the contrasts in British and American society and further emphasise social disparities whilst at the same time reveal behavioral characteristics that are shared, regardless of economic circumstance, cultural factors or geographic location.

“I had viewed both London and Pittsburgh through a prism mixed with Charles Dickens and Norman Rockwell. Sometimes the bringing together of two bodies of work made in different locations can generate new insights and reflections upon social divisions in each.” - Mark Neville
