The first UK exhibition by Hugo Scott, the New York-based photographer and filmmaker; ‘On the edge of town’ features new and recent photographs documenting contemporary life in the USA. Scott’s work spans social documentary, fashion and portraiture and is characterised by its spontaneity and empathy with the subject. His work has been featured in the New York Times, Love Magazine, Dazed and Confused and Print Publication. He is part of the photography collective DoBeDo.
An Elvis impersonator, a lonely American diner and twin girls standing on top of a military tank are all subjects in Hugo Scott’s exhibition On the edge of town, which welcome visitors to SWG3’s newly created Acid Bar, also opening on 20th April. These highly charged colour photographs are characterised by a sense of immediacy and Scott’s remarkable empathy with his subjects, encountered during visits to conventions and festivals across the world.
