Social Clusterings

Antony Coleman’s photographs explore social clusterings in everyday spaces, whether in an infants gym where the protagonists ‘find a space’ to operate independently of each other or in the urban setting of Canary Wharf. The processes that structure these geometries can be practical such as a need to function unhindered or be based on the desire to maintain a personal space. Space and people are rendered entirely dependant upon each other – people’s behaviour is determined by their shifting surroundings but space, too, is provisional: it is human activity that defines, informs and qualifies space, ie that articulates it.
Anthony Coleman is a photographer based in London.
