Past Perfect (2008 - 2016) is a photographic series highlighting the pervasive and visual relationship of war and conflict within public museums. These images form a study on how this violent past is preserved and presented to society across the world. “I have focused on the infrastructure and artifice of these spaces, to bring a new perspective on how manufactured history and memory can be within the museum space.“
Born 1979, the British photographer is internationally recognized for his long-term social documentary projects, environmental portraiture and landscape reportage. His immersive process and slower approach to journalism allow for comprehensive bodies of work that reveal and frame important social, economic and political issues. His work is often concerned with contextualizing present realities through historical legacies. He has published different important books, especially after his works in Egypt and South Africa.
