London SE1 wrote:Southwark Council commissioned the work, titled 65,000 Photographs, on behalf of developer St George, who funded the sculpture through a section 106 agreement...
The towering sculpture is a product of Khan's personal archive of images from the past six years – some 65,000 images... The sculpture represents the volume of photography in the modern age and draws attention to the almost forgotten art of photographic printing, in our ever more digitised world... Cast in aluminium, the textured surface of the sculpture echoes the delicate edges of each photographic print.
Quote:The agreement will... enable the local authority to secure, or the developer to offer, restrictions on the use of the land or the operation of the development or to make contributions towards the local infrastructure and facilities.
