Slim Rich and Famous

Following a journey through the harsh realities of war as a combat photographer, Aarons then decided to explore the elite world of glamour, fame and wealth. It wasn't long before he was swept into a whirlwind of luxury and extravagance and became an integral part of his subjects' lives.
'Slim, Rich and Famous' is exhibiting at the Getty Images Gallery for the next month.

Much of Ryle's work reminds me of Nick Meek's from composition of shot and choice of location, to the similar 'bleached out' effect.

However, Ryle explores other dimensions in both mood and content and I think his work has a more atmospheric feel to it, which differentiates his work from Meek's. In particular, much of his 'places' work posseses a serene and calm quality, which is all created through setting, use of tones, the stillness and lack of presence within the pictures.

Ryle is also developing his portraiture work.

He also takes interest in logo design and typography and has formed graphic shapes with letters of the alphabet.

Alison Carmichael

Clean Me, is the first in a self promotional series by Alison Carmichael. “We projected my artwork on to the back of the van so I could trace it in the dirt with my finger,” she explains.

The queen of hand lettering shows the beauty of words when they are hand lettered as illustrated in her previous works, most particularly the infamous 'Cunt' poster.
