Metro is delighted to have produced prints for a new exhibition ‘With A Conscious Eye’ featuring the work of three highly regarded, contemporary photographers, Nick Danziger
, David Constantine
and Justin Partyka
. Each photographer has used their medium to provide a unique and powerful insight into the lives and traditions of various communities and individuals around the world.
David Constantine has a unique physical and emotional perspective from which he photographs having been paralysed from the neck down and confined to a wheelchair since the age of 21. His work has taken him around the world often photographing subjects facing life in difficult environments in developing countries and communities striving to recover from conflict. He tries to capture people who are or have lived through times of great change in their country, resulting in work which conveys a humanism in a direct yet gentle manner.
Nick Danziger’s career has led him around the globe, documenting people in unusual or challenging circumstances, from conflict zones to political crises and impoverished inner city communities. His work presented in this exhibition captures Hindu pilgrims in the throes of India’s greatest sacred rite, Maha Kumbh Mela, the largest religious gathering in human history.
Justin Partyka’s series of work is focused on the lives of people closer to home, photographing the lives of “the forgotten people of the flatlands” - the remnants of the agrarian community of East Anglia. These people live on the margins of modern society in one of the country’s most rural and agricultural regions. His timeless images are the result of many years spent in the farmlands of the area, patiently watching how man and landscape intimately shape each other, offering a glimpse into a disappearing way of life.
