Primary colours, block shadows and gradient skies highlight dynamic outlines of corrugated iron and brick chimneys, whilst showcasing developments in minimalist postproduction and digital art. Steve Bainbridge (b. 1974) expresses a vision for disassociated topographies, where geography is a fluid concept which alludes to a multitude of identities. The series looks at the future of an industrialised and technological planet, where buildings become replicated beyond control and are no longer separated by distinguishable features or indicatory details. Bainbridge’s desire to formally train as a photographer was inspired by the candid documentary works of Tim Page, Don McCullin, Henri Cartier-Bresson and Elliott Erwitt. Recording daily life has since become an enduring personal project for the London-based artist, capturing both interior and exterior spaces with a keen vision for contemporary iconography and defined environments. www.stevebainbridge.com.
