Sophisticated photography for racquet sports enthusiasts. Often I suggest that men incorporate their passion for sports into their space. These photographs by Elliot Wilcox are a great way to do just that. Additionally, the abstract and architectural quality of the work makes it accessible to a much broader audience. According to Danielle Frost of Bau-Xiphoto:
Elliott Wilcox is an emerging British photographer who has recently been the recipient of several awards including a Judges Award at the Nikon Discovery Awards, a New York Photo Award in 2009 and the prestigious Lucie Award for the Discovery of the Year at the International Photography Awards. Another exciting highlight of his career was being made a finalist in the BBC documentary show, School of Saatchi, following high-profile art collector Charles Saatchi on his quest to find the next big artist.
Elliott’s photographs empty tennis, racquetball and squash courts. In photographing them absent of the fast paced action we are so familiar with, these environments reveal themselves in a new light. The resulting images, with their bold colours and structural lines, recall abstract modernist paintings.
