Follow the above link to see all the images from Cabby Dave. The images are taken in and around London in the Barbican Area. They have a real sense of honesty. If unknowing of dates of the images they could be from any time period. Even more so with the black and white images. They make me think of work be people like Paul Trevor. You get a real sense of the old and the new with the buildings and regeneration on browsing thought the images . I really like the fact the Photos are all taken from the same level. On further investigation you see they are taken from the window of the drivers taxi. The images may to some lack slightly on composition but make up for this with fact they are relevant and original. As well as the factor of working in the constraints of a London Cab A very special peace of work

Hello! I get about a bit so here about me first. I am a visual artist and poet who works within the context of fine art. My work is grounded in documentary, exploring the inner beauty of everyday life through various lens based media. Notions of nostalgia and social commentary are present, but from a definite northern working class perspective. Instinctively I exploring the townscapes of North Wales and the North West, often producing work that reflects the every day minutiae of life.
