The Landscape of Murder – Antonio Olmos
Currently exhibiting at Rich Mix in London until 30 May having just moved from the Format15 exhibition at Faculty of Arts, Derby University where it was showed from 13 March to 12 April. Antonio’s record of each of the 209 murder sites within the M25 were taken between January 1st, 2011 and December 31st, 2012. It’s a striking series of images combining as they do the inevitable mundanity and familiarity but managing at the same time to create, what, a slight prickling? There’s nothing voyeuristic here; we’ve all seen the type of location, the people, the grey clouds but Antonio’s eye – and doggedness – has discovered and recorded a kind of ‘after’ effect.
