Savoy | The Restoration series
Captured during a documentation of the hallowed interiors of the world famous Edwardian hotel the ‘Savoy’ during the three-year long refurbishment – the epitome of Art Deco luxury and elegance. The Savoy project formed the subject of a solo show at the 81 Leonard Street Gallery, and was produced with a book tie-in, with Savoy | The Restoration being released by Dewi Lewis Publishing in 2011.
The book’s frontispiece was an evocative shot of the individual gilded metal letters from the hotel’s external sign lying in the shell of the famous Savoy Grill Room, where they spell out the word ‘S-A-V-O-Y’. This striking image was selected by the Royal Academy of Arts, London to be exhibited in their Summer Show 2012.
In 2013, the project was selected by François Hébel, Director of Les Rencontres d’Arles photography festival, for the exhibition ‘Impresa Fotografia Bologna’, held in Bologna, Italy. A wide-ranging exploration of corporate photography, this exhibition showed works by, amongst others, Brian Griffin, David Goldblatt, Mark Power and Henri Cartier-Bresson. Siobhán’s work was exhibited in the form of a permanent projection, and was installed in a magnificent ex-orphanage – itself in the process of reconstruction.
The Savoy prints are available in 3 sizes in a stepped edition.
Prices depend on the size and the edition available for each individual print. For example, the Savoy Lettering photograph is priced higher because of its popularity and limited number available. Click ‘bespoke options to purchase‘ tab at the bottom of the gallery for sizes and pricing. All prints in the series are Giclee type and printed on Hahnemuhle FineArt photorag cotton paper.
All prints are available framed either flat mounted or floating and with optional glass specification. Normal glass will reduce the framing price, however we recommend Non Reflective (NR) glass for the best presentation.
