From October 1 to October 21, the theprintspace Gallery in London is presenting Harrodsburg, an exhibition of works by Dougie Wallace.
Critically acclaimed photographer Dougie Wallace continues to push the boundaries of the social documentary genre with his latest body of work. Turning his attention to the consequences of the rising economic and political power of the 'one per cent', the result is Harrodsburg: an up-close wealth safari exploring the wildlife that inhabits the super-rich residential and retail district of Knightsbridge and Chelsea.
Through the prism of London’s lavish designer shops, resembling minimalist art installations, Dougie Wallace tells the story of glut, greed and the wealth gap playing out on the streets of a city which has seen a 400% rise in demand for food banks in the last year.
Employing his trademark wit and keen eye for the absurd, Wallace has produced an uncompromisingly revealing series of pictures which satire the super rich and their spending habits in uncomfortably intimate, gaudy detail.
