Roman Road Project Space is hosting the first solo show by American contemporary fine art photographer David Welch until 18th May.
The exhibition presents a selection of twelve large format photographs and two sculptures from his ongoing series MATERIAL WORLD.
It may look that the images are retouched digitally but everything in the photograph is real and it is, in my opinion, a series of images that very cleverly and in a stylistic way criticise our consumer culture (the big amount of goods that are nowadays mass-produced in the form of consumer commodities).
The project takes influence from Karl Marx´s theory of objectification, a concept that considers humankind’s relationship to material forms. According to Marx, objectification is the process through which individuals externalise themselves via the objects they produce.
Very inspiring. Pay a visit to this new exhibition space on 69 Roman Road, London E2 0QN (at the heart of East London’s Bethnal Green) and make sure you join their mailing list for upcoming shows.

Last thursday I arrived to Madrid on my way back to London and attended the Aristocrazy party in C/ Serrano where they presented a little jewellery accessory called ‘Feeler’ for the new Blackberry Z10. The event was deejayed by the stunning Gala Gonzalez (amlul.com).
Other attendees included Pelayo Diaz, Cup Of Couple, Marina Jamieson and Caritina Goyanes to name a few.
It was an Aristohour surrounded by friends and Madrid’s coolest jewellery.
