Admirers of David Lynch and his film work should definitely check out a running exhibit in London. If you’re going to be in the English capital in the coming days, we have details for you to check out and take note after the jump!
Aside from being a renowned film director of psychological thrillers and surrealist films, David Lynch is also an effective visual artist and photographer. Looking at the mysterious and slightly unsettling black and white photos above, one is bound to agree that his ability to instill a bit of anxiety in his viewers extends from motion pictures to still photographs.
The photos above are actually part of an ongoing exhibit in The Photographers' Gallery in London. Entitled David Lynch: The Factory Photographs, the exhibit showcases a series of eerie monochrome snaps of industrial structures shot in various locations such as Germany, Poland, New York, New Jersey, and England.
“I love industry. Pipes. I love fluid and smoke. I love man-made things. I like to see people hard at work, and I like to see sludge and man-made waste,” Lynch says about his Factory snaps.
Accompanying the exhibit is a fully illustrated book which is available in the Gallery Bookshop.
Should you want to visit the exhibit and take a look at Lynch’s enigmatic monochromes (alongside photography works of William S. Burroughs and Andy Warhol), here are the details you need to take note of:
