Tom Hunter’s latest exhibition 'Axis Mundi' - Supported by Metro

11 November 2013
Metro is delighted to be producing work for celebrated British photographer Tom Hunter’s latest exhibition ‘Axis Mundi’ which opens at Purdy Hicks Gallery, London later this month.

‘Axis Mundi’ is a remarkable series of images in which Hunter has captured the landscape of the areas surrounding his childhood home, remote areas of South West England which contain fascinating ancient stones and megalithic architecture, and has explored the connection with the landscape that they inhabit.

Hunter explains,  “Creating Axis Mundi has led me on a pilgrimage through the landscape of our past.”
He continues, “The sites, which were built from as long ago as 3,000BC, have no documentation from their creators to illuminate their functions or meanings, so hover in our imaginations as places of magic and mystery. From this, local folk tales have become part of the language that connects the people with the stones.”

“One thing is certain whilst visiting these sites: the stones have a powerful presence and a gravity all of their own. In some ways the stones not only become monuments and shrines, but statues in their own right.”

Metro processed the 5”x 4” E6 film Hunter used for this project, our expert technicians then scanned and worked the images up to 37”x29" supergloss prints ready for our finishing and framing team.
