Benedict Redgrove: New Work

Work / Photography

Photographer Benedict Redgrove’s aerial shots pack a mighty Cold War punch

If you’ve ever harboured secret desires to become a spy then you’re in for a treat care of Benedict Redgrove’s espionage-inspired photographs. The international man of mystery (how does he take those aerial shots?) has been amassing a large body of images that evoke the thrill of cold-war plots and international missile crises. The combination of panoramic aerial photographs of US suburbia sat alongside similarly lofty desert-scapes seem to drag those decades-old narratives into a modern context, echoing the east-west tensions with which we’ve all become so familiar.

Quite apart from the political narrative, Benedict’s images look incredible and offer a breathtakingly open sense of perspective to our terminally land-locked species.
