Alan & Gretchen are a London based photography collaborative. The pair, both born in New Zealand, met in 2004 and have been working collaboratively for 8 years. Gretchen graduated from Auckland University of Technology with a Bachelor of Visual Arts, Alan assisted photographer Tim Flach.

We are introduced to romantic landscapes, creeping vines, archaic hotel rooms, dusty dried flowers, peeled hard boiled eggs, smoke, suspended furniture, staircases leading to nowhere, crumbling buildings. Connections between these bodies of work relate to the fragility of nature, presented in a dream-like stillness. This veneer of meticulously lit textures; precariously balanced found objects, landscapes resting in twilight uncover a dark and mysterious world, where the viewer is invited to contemplate nature in a somewhat unsteady manner. Igniting the viewer into a highly emotional and physical state of connectivity.

Each project is carefully planned, executed with all technical, conceptual and aesthetic problems solved before touching a camera. "We have very clear ideas about the work we produce, often the decision or moment to film or photograph seems spontaneous, this option is only available because the idea and preparation was occurred at an earlier point in time, sometimes several years prior. Thinking on a subject is critical to our on-going investigation of modern philosophical questions and human behaviour in this increasingly over populated world". Read Less
