THE SLOW: JESSE LIZOTTE - Saturday 11 August 2018

For his debut into the Asian market, photographer Jesse Lizotte’s series of photographic artworks will be showcased at The Slow for a month from this Saturday 7pm onwards. No stranger to the art world, Lizotte’s works have previously been shown at galleries spanning from Los Angeles to London, and premiered on acclaimed covers from GQ to Oyster. Lizotte is inspired by how those individuals regarded to be on the ‘fringes’ of society still influence popular culture and fashion, consequently Lizotte’s subject matter naturally gravitates towards subcultures such as musicians and skateboarders. His images are both familiar to the viewer and yet with his photographic skills, he presents the viewer a innovative and different perspective of what is thought to be the familiar. The Slow will be showcasing a series that consists of 10 black and white images in their gallery space- Room 13.
