David Hill Gallery
Having studied photography at Berkshire College of Art & Design, David Hill then worked in the music industry for twenty years before opening David Hill Gallery in West London in 2015.
Exhibitions have included Sanlé Sory’s first solo show outside of West Africa in 2017; Mario Carnicelli’s sharply observed mid-1960s American street photography, which also debuted at the gallery, and Hunter Barnes’ extraordinary work documenting those on the margins of mainstream American society.
In 2020 David collaborated with fellow curator and art historian Carrie Scott to show the work of Brooklyn’s Harold Feinstein. Continuing to work together, their next show was the critically acclaimed Tête-à-Têtes – West African Portraiture from Independence into the 21st Century, which showcased the work of four artists working in post-colonial West Africa; Sanlé Sory, Malick Sidibé, Leonce Raphael Agbodjélou and Benin’s Rachidi Bissiriou.
In 2022 Scott and Hill presented the debut exhibition Ben Hassett’s Beer Soda Lotto series, a portrait of Los Angeles shot in the mesmerising light of city’s morning golden hour.
David Hill Gallery has an eye for meaningful, yet often overlooked and unseen, works representative of cultural and political shifts. SHOWstudio, June 2021
