Dougie Wallace Harrodsburg Book Launch & Exhibition
Tue 21 March 2017, 19:30 – 22:00 GMT
theprintspace Gallery are proud to announce the official book launch of ’Harrodsburg’ by photographer Dougie Wallace published by the renowned Dewi Lewis.
Critically acclaimed photographer Dougie Wallace continues to push the boundaries of the social documentary genre in his latest book, turning his attention to the rising economic and political power of the 'one per cent'. Harrodsburg: an up-close wealth safari exploring the wildlife that inhabits the super-rich residential and retail district of Knightsbridge and Chelsea.
The book is a powerful, timely and stark exposé of the emergence of an ultra-affluent elite who have turned London into a global reserve currency, changing the face of our city. Upper middle class natives have been priced out of Central London, first time buyers excluded and even old wealth is marginalised from their time-honoured habitats.
Wallace’s Harrodsburg exploits have been captured on film by documentary filmmaker Jack Cocker in a new series of ‘What Do Artists Do All Day’, which will form part of a BBC Four’s season celebrating British photography this spring.
Join us on Tuesday 21st March, from 7.30pm where Dougie will be launching the new book to accompany the series.
Entrance is free and drinks will be provided. We look forward to welcoming you to theprintspace Gallery.
