NEW ARTISTNick Meek (UK)
Coming from the North of England, where life can be grey and the summers short, Nick grew hungry for warmth, colour and adventure. “It made me want to explore the world and I think my photographs show more than anything else, a world full of light." Creating award-winning campaigns, Nick feels at ease both photographing stills and directing moving image. His work touches on everyone’s ability to sense and feel atmosphere. Whether it is a galloping horse in the desert, kids crossing the street, discarded shoes on a carpet or a majestic landscape, his pictures capture, not only a sense of the moment, but also the feeling.

Alone Together- Aristotle RoufanisOpening Feb 27th“The bigger the city, the lonelier we feel. It is important for people to understand that although lonely, they are not alone. Individuality does not equal to alienation.”Momentum in conjuction with the Color House, presents Alone Together by Greek Artist Aristotle Roufanis. Opening Feb 27th.Since 2016 Roufanis has been creating super-high-definition images of urban landscapes that are an intimate look into the lives of city-dwellers and their loneliness.The starting point for this project was the artist’s own experience as an expat in London a few years ago. His initial observations of people tending to feel isolated in big cities led to further research into the phenomenon of urban loneliness in modern societies. This revealed that the issue is so widespread that it is often described as an epidemic. In the US alone, rates of loneliness have doubled in the last 50 years; according to a survey, nearly half of Americans report sometimes or always feeling alone or left out.London, Paris, Hong Kong, Miami, Athens: for Aristotle Roufanis, urban habitats and the loneliness of city dwellers are surprisingly the same wherever you go. By isolating only a few illuminated windows in each photo, the artist seeks to raise awareness about the epidemic of loneliness in big cities and at the same time take a positive stance about it. In his own words: “The bigger the city, the lonelier we feel. It is important for people to understand that although lonely, they are not alone. Individuality does not equal to alienation.”
