· Daniel Arnold
Paris London Hong Kong is pleased to invite you to Goodbye Stranger, an installation of new work by Daniel Arnold. The exhibition opens with a reception for the artist on Friday, October 24 from 5 to 8pm.
Daniel Arnold has taken thousands of photos of people on the streets from New York to San Francisco; posting them to his Instagram account, where he now has over 100,000 followers. His photographs capture a seemingly unreal, yet totally unstaged and unapologetic look at everyday life in the cities Arnold roams.
The subjects of Arnold’s photographic narrative are both improbable and poignant. Patiently observant, his lens is focused on the continuous events that unfold in front of us everyday. Where naturally occurring schisms typically go unnoticed, Arnold manages to celebrate these moments, providing a perspective otherwise unseen.
The works that compose Goodbye Stranger highlight some of Arnold’s recent travels and wanderings. In the context of a gallery, the effect of seeing an image scaled up to a large format print provides the viewer an opportunity to experience the rich detail and absurdity captured in each shot. With nine new works and a portfolio available, Goodbye Stranger allows Arnold’s work a whole new context in which to be considered.
