Ken Grant: Benny Profane (Signed w, Print)
Ken Grant’s photography is characterised by slow and deliberate series made - often over years -in the Northwest of England.
Benny Profane is drawn from a long term engagement with a dockland district that Grant first knew as a labourer in his youth. Bound by a few square miles at the edge of the River Mersey, it dwells on the river's hinterland and, in particular, the vast expanse of the Bidston Moss, to become an immersion into one area and those who depended upon it. It is an involved and tender body of work, an account of kinship and defiance in a difficult land.
Ken Grant’s photographs are held in important collections of photography, including those of the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Folkwang Museum Essen and other international public and private collections. He currently teaches Photography at Belfast School of Art.
