(jiří macek) The Them exhibition of photos by British photographer Danny Treacy at the Photographers’ Gallery in London is open only until Saturday, September 20. If you are planning to go to the Design Festival in London, be sure not to miss it.
Portraying the reverse side of fashion, the Them project plays with methods of fashion stylists and brings phantoms and tender freaks from the darkest nights into the world. Clumsy creatures composed of discarded things seem to be confused in the hidden corners of the world, longing for beauty in a very awkward way. One can find tenderness, irony, and nightmares in one sentence.
A graduate from the Royal College of Art in London, Danny Treacy often walks the darkest alleys of our dreams in his work. The photographer, whose name is well known from such influential fashion magazines as I.D., Tank, and Another Magazine, as well as from a whole range of anthologies of contemporary photography including Vitamin Ph and New Perspectives in Photography published by Phaidon, looks for lifeless retreats and forgotten items, allowing them to tell their own story.
If you do not manage to see the first solo exhibition of Danny Treacy, have a look at www.dannytreacy.com. . His other projects, such as Those and Grey Area are real masterpieces. However, they are slightly scary.
