Saul Fletcher

Untitled#210 (Birdcage), 2009
black & white Polaroid 13.3 x 10.8 cms

"In his photographs Saul Fletcher visualizes human existence in all its temporal dimensions and physical fragility. The scenes he depicts achieve a concentrated intimacy: In order to take in every detail, the viewer is compelled to get as close as possible to the work. His careful still lifes draw attention to details; the discarded moments of the everyday become the focus, and in this way are imbued with new or altered meaning.”Extract from catalogue for the 4th Berlin Biennial (2006)
Saul Fletcher is showing photographs and installations at Alison Jaques Gallery, 16-18 Berners Street, London W1 until 27th June.
