Transformations 3 by Leo Fitzmaurice & Inspiration from Film Packaging

Leo Fitzmaurice’s work challenges our perceptions of the ordinary using drastic changes in scale. His latest installation, Transformations 3 at The Lowry in Salford Quays, is inspired by film packaging from two of the largest photo companies, Jessop & Kodak. The exhibition runs until September 5th, 2010.

“Fitzmaurice’s bold approach to design and scale completely re-imagines the space, creating an extraordinary installation that turns the gallery walls into oversized packaging boxes. Inspired by colours and patterns found on old-style 35mm film boxes, he turns the commonplace into the thrilling.” – Lowry Exhibition page
