On Thursday, April 4th Alexis Gross & The Gallery next to The Burgundy Room will present 1000, a solo photo exhibition by photographer Ben Rayner. 1000 is an explosion of sorts of Rayner’s brain, with the exhibition aptly featuring 1000 photos spanning the past ten years of Rayner’s subjects covering the walls. A sensory overload of good times, faces, places, objects and dogs- a life collage.

Ben Rayner is a british photographer based in New York. Rayner has had solo exhibitions in New York, London, and Tokyo and has released two monographs of his work “Powerballads” in 2010 and “(Un)Familiar” in 2012 as well as numerous zines such as “Hello Buddy” which was entirely dedicated to dogs. Rayner has shot for magazines such as Vogue, Vice, Dazed and Confused as well as the likes of Nike, Converse, and Adidas.

I don’t think I’d be alone in saying that Ben Rayner is one of London’s finest portrait photographers. A plethora of great talent has stood in front of his lens, from Alexa Chung, to Wolfgang Tilmans, and if it’s good enough for them, it most certainly is for me. Some great editorial features too that shouldn’t be missed, including work for Vice, Vogue and Wonderland.” Alex Bec – It’s Nice That.
