Traces PV Friday 12th

Traces Photography Show with Albumen Gallery and Rodic Davidson

Photography Show of Edmund Sumner's Series 'Traces' Supported by Albumen Gallery and Rodic Davidson

The ‘Traces’ sequence collapses the binary opposition between the material and the metaphysical, peeling back invisible and visible layers of the architectural form to expose latent resonances from generations past.

In representing contexts as culturally and topographically diverse as Hacienda Holl in Mexico and Inagawa in Japan, it identifies cultural ‘traces’ as spiritual as well as historical phenomena; innate, eminently personal, yet universally felt and perceptible through an art-photography capable of documenting lived experiences in real time.

Each photograph reads as an aesthetically engaged histogram, reflecting the incredible depth of engagement which is not only perceptible in, but fundamental to architectural history.

Wallpaper Review

'Contemporary House India offers stunning portrait of the country's new modernism'

'Sumner has travelled extensively in India and his photographs place each house in context, from urban density to suburban sprawl, to remote villas that are set against a backdrop of spectacular scenery. The very welcome addition of plans and sections makes this much more than a glossy picture book – even though the glossy pictures are exceptional'

Greyscape Feature on Artists support Pledge

We live in curious times, but for me the positives far outweigh the negatives. I hope that when the dust settles, we will all be in a better place.

I have been using the time to re -imagine the places and spaces that I've been lucky enough to have experienced.

Making prints has been a sideline of my practice for many years, but I'm increasingly drawn to it again and jumped at being involved in the Artists Support Pledge .
