LONDON.- Eleven presents Anglia, new photographs by Harry Cory Wright. Through his 8 x 10 camera he vividly depicts Anglia, a rich parallel world which retains strong geographical references but is at once removed from any specific place. With nods both to Dan Brown’s historically steeped narratives and to Iain M Banks’s conjuring of future worlds beyond our own, he creates a series of photographs which prompt us to reconsider new ways of observing the timelessness of the present.

He explores the eastern lowlands of the British Isles, an area which holds deep traces of the old as well as the new, the ancient and future and the world that lies in between. Each image hints at these dichotomies. In The Eve of St. Agnes (2015) the thick pillars, archways, vaulted ceilings, with the stained glass held by them, make up the nave of this venerable space. Through removing many of the characteristics associated with images of its everyday functionality, Cory Wright allows this empty space to become of universal contemplation where future possibilities can be glimpsed and grasped.

He infuses historical sites with prospect, with visions of what may come. Through abstracting elements of the environments he photographs, we re-evaluate these spaces and see the enchantment held therein. From the context of stars and constellations above and ancient scripts and carvings below, a land of magic is revealed. Made from centuries of human endeavour, each place transcends, becoming something intriguing, modern and full of potential.

Cory Wright uses a 10 x 8 inch wooden Gandolfi plate camera to produce negatives of immense clarity. His printers in London, Bayeux, work closely with him to create the initial prints which start to reveal the information from the negative. Grieger, in Germany, then enlarge the photographs and it is at this point that the incredible level of detail really starts to appear. The c prints are available in two sizes – 58 x 71 in / 148 x 180 cm (edition of 3) and 32 ½ x 39 in / 83 x 100 cm (edition of 7).

Eleven will be also be exhibiting Cory Wright’s works at the inaugural edition of international photography art fair, Photo London, at Somerset House from 21st to 24th May to coincide with his exhibition at the gallery.

Harry Cory Wright was born in 1963 and lives and works in Norfolk. His work was included in Landmark: The Fields of Photography at Somerset House, London (2013) curated by William A. Ewing which also featured work by Darren Almond, Elger Esser, Hirsohi Sugimoto and Thomas Struth. Solo exhibitions include Hey Charlie, Eleven (2013) and Place in Mind, Eleven (2011).
