Theam Spuma, Siem Reap Province, Cambodia, 2008 Simon Larbalestier, Platinum/Palladium Print


Ta Prohm #5, Siem Reap, Cambodia, 2004, Simon Larbalestier, Platinum/Palladium Print

Simon is well known for his collaborative work with Vaughan Oliver and the design studios 23 Envelope with whom he has provided  photographic imagery used on album artwork for bands such as the Pixies, Red House Painters, Heidi Berry and other artists on the 4AD label. He has an interest in decayed textures and unusual juxtapositions of subject matter as well as empty spaces, desolation and loneliness. What I love about Simon’s work is that is full of detail and texture that translates so well when printing with platinum & palladium. I will post the scans of the full series when complete.
