The origins of the exhibition are quite unexpected. In the year 2020, when the Covid-19 pandemic caused a sudden halt to Davies' flourishing career as a music photographer, he chanced upon his true passion. With not much to occupy himself, he started clicking studio portraits of artists from South London whom he had gotten to know during his daily lockdown strolls.
His Instagram posts received a massive response from artists, inspiring him to embark on an exciting new project. He has already photographed over two hundred contemporary artists in their studios across the UK, with a commitment of five weekly shoots. He has approached emerging young UK artists with a refreshing and unbiased perspective, highlighting diversity and richness. He visited various locations, including less explored areas, to capture intimate studio spaces and form meaningful relationships with the artists. This adds warmth and openness to the final images, showcasing his creative vision and personal connection with the artists. The exhibition features over forty artists but here are some of the featured artists in this exhibition.
