About the artwork
The limited edition LDN3_157. 2014 (negative date), 2018 was produced in support of Tate by Antony Cairns on the occasion of the exhibition Shape of Light: 100 Years of Photography and Abstract Art 2 May 2018 – 14 October 2018, Tate Modern. Created as a limited edition of 50, each work is signed and numbered by the artist.


'Photographing cities began as a personal project in London, which saw Cairns taking pictures of historical buildings such as closed-down pubs and vintage shops. But on returning to these places, he realised that many of them were disappearing and being replaced by “huge conglomerate mega-complexes”.

He decided he’d like to photograph the new landscape but, as these large scale developments are often owned by property developers, he would often be told he needed permission to shoot on his 5 x 4 camera. He resorted to sneaking around late at night instead, using a small electronic camera that helped push him into a more abstract approach.

Noticing the same developments in other countries, Cairns began to take photographs using similar methods in cities, including Tokyo, Osaka, LA and Las Vegas. The idea is to build an archive of images, he says, not of “each city” but of “city”, to capture “the ambience and atmosphere of cities in general”.'
