Sewell’s new book consists of beautiful landscapes, domestic interiors and still-lives that make up a delicate portrayal of today’s English countryside. The artist explores how our idea of this land, and the pastoral symbolism related to it, intersects with contemporary culture. Sewell goes beyond the clichés in order to create a visual experience in which the noise of contemporary life melts into bucolic conventions and habits.
Andy Sewell, born in 1978, lives and works in London. He received international acclaim for his first publication “The Heath” (winner of the International Photobook Award in 2012), a beautiful wander around the Hampstead Heath Park in London.
