Ellie Davies with Latitude Photographers: Opulence

    photo by Ellie Davies

    In the run up to, and during the Christmas holiday Latitude Photographers take residence in a disused shop in the East End. As part of Photomonth09, the artist collective curates a show that critically explores the notion of Opulence. Responses to the theme encompass artists’ considerations of its meaning in our culture, asking whether opulence is an antidote to the recession, aspirational escapism, or a utopian ideal. The abuse of wealth has caused economic and social neglect, so how have perceptions of opulence shifted within the contemporary psyche?
