15 -17 June
Milo Hale is a young London based photographer whose interest in urban exploration and free running inspired him to document his experience, creating photographs that use his environment as a canvas.
Hales first solo exhibition, Personal Space features works from 2015 to the present. Raised during the explosion of social media, and indeed establishing an initial reputation based on his Instagram following, the photographs explore the dialectic between the camaraderie of a tightly knit collective community of urban explorers and the deeply personal experience of taking ones own path through the environment.
He describes his photographs as experiential rather than technical. I am not interested in what makes a technically perfect picture but more about how the place Im in makes me feel, and the experience I have in that moment. Im often looking for a moment of stillness in the least expected of places.
Having originally developed his work in his home city, Hale has recently expanded his urban outlook to new settings, including trips to Iceland, Berlin, Amsterdam and New York.
Hales work has previously been featured in EyeEms Future London exhibition (2015), The Observer and The Evening Standard.
Photographs are available to purchase in limited quantity. Please enquire or contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
