Location: The Outsiders London
Dates: Tuesday 2nd of August 2011 to Saturday 13th of August 2011
The Outsiders is pleased to announce that Boogie's exhibition Demons has been brought to London by popular demand, for two weeks only!
Boogie has used antique photographic techniques to invoke a diabolical aspect in his modern-day subjects. The people in his portraits – young and old, the slick and shambolic alike – seem under the possession of infernal forces.
"I used a wet plate collodion process" says Boogie. "It was amazing to feel like an alchemist, mixing chemicals and pouring plates in my tiny dirty basement. There's dust and dirt everywhere and temperature varies, so the results are unpredictable. After doing the first few plates, I realised that something about this process captures peoples' darker side. So I named the series Demons. Every picture was taken in Belgrade in late autumn and winter. It was grey and gloomy, the photo exposures were long, and you could see people going crazy trying to keep still and staring in the lens."
