Nigel Shafran b 1964

Shafran first became known for radicalizing fashion photography in the 1980’s. His current work focuses on the still life details of everyday living-scenarios that are drawn from domestic spaces and the mundane world. Shafran’s Charity Shops series is part of an ongoing exploration of this ‘ordinary London’

The high production values of this work together with the artist’s deep interest in the commonplace, has led to the creation of melancholic portraits of people and places.
