Antony Cairns generously produced LDN3_157. 2014 (negative date)
, 2018 on the occasion of the Tate Modern exhibition, Shape of Light: 100 Years of Photography and Abstract Art, 2 May 2018 – 14 October 2018 in support of Tate.
Growing up in the east end of London, and travelling to Los Angeles, New York and Tokyo, Cairns has been photographing the city as his main subject from the age of 15. Cairns uses analogue photography and shoots almost exclusively on black and white film. However the most characteristic aspect of Cairns work is in the printing process. He prints all his own work using chemical-based techniques and experiments with light distortions, printing surfaces, and even electronic ink from e-books. For his editions for Tate, two images taken in London have been printed using silkscreened ink onto silver metallic paper. Each print is signed and numbered by the artist and comes unframed.
