About the artworkDahlia #14 is a rich and elegant Archival Inkjet print from Contemporary photographer Philip Gatward. All prints are produced to order. Lead times between 5-10 days. Gatward's first personal project, 'Dahlias', focussed on the intricacies of this unusual flower. In this ongoing and varied series, Gatward shoots his subjects, which range from flowers to animals, against the same neutral grey background, which brings out the fascinating symmetry of seeing something seemingly ordinary from very close up. The stunning variety and intense colours of these images are irresistible. As he studies the beauty and uniqueness of his subjects Gatward compels you to notice the minute details that distinguishes them all.
Philip Gatward has worked as a successful photographer, predominantly in the advertising industry for over 20 years. During that time, some of his most significant campaigns have included work for Nike, Conde Nast, Elle Decor, Phillips, Boosey & Hawkes, Coca-Cola, Heineken, the V&A, Wrangler and the Design Council.
Philip has exhibited work at Crane Kalman since its first group show â€˜Eclecticaâ€™ back in 2006, featuring his on-going major project â€˜Dahliasâ€™. Focusing on one of the plant worldâ€™s most varied and diverse flowers, Philip chooses to photograph each flower, close-up, against the same neutral background to heighten the extra-ordinary detail and beauty of these flowers.
