Beautiful Crime

Police Raid/Robin Maddock

I was privileged to be on the panel of the Descubrimientos PHE as part this June’s Photoespania in Madrid. Robin Maddock’s work particularly intrigued me. The mix of beautiful Carravaggio lighting with the harsh brutal nature of the subject matter is very effective and very unsettling. Maddock has worked on arrests for drugs and arms in North London, portraying the routine nature of such operations since 2005 showing the endless cycle of arrests and bail bonds.
