The premiere show of David Solomons’ “Up West” work encompasses a portrait of London’s West End over the the last ten years, depicting fluctuations in the area’s landscape and the people who flock there in droves to eat, shop, find entertainment and engage in nights out on ‘the lash’.
The show at Cardiff’s newest photography gallery is a must see for anyone interested in contemporary photography.
David Solomons was born in London and started out as a self-taught photographer before studying Documentary Photography at Newport, Wales. Since then he has focused on self-initiated documentary and portrait projects. He has self-published two books of his work: Happenstance: Black and White Photographs 1990-2007 and Underground, both of which have been exhibited.
Third Floor Gallery is run by photographers Joni Karanka and Maciej Dakowicz. Located in a period building a stone’s throw away from Cardiff’s bustling waterfront and the Millennium Centre, Third Floor Gallery shows the most exciting national and international contemporary photography.
