Men Of Wisdom at Leo Burnett

Men of Wisdom is finally up!

It’s hanging in Leo Burnett’s swanky offices in London.

I wanted another pair of eyes to assist me with this so Jason at Deadline who works on all of my branding was tasked with curating the exhibition.

We measured up the space, and he came back to me with a layout. I was immediately struck by the decision to print the to panorama’s 3 metres wide. It was the main idea he pushed. I’m reallyglad he did.

Mark Foxwell at Genesis imaging printed and mounted the work on 5mm foamex. The test prints were pretty much there, and we worked on making sure that the grading done by The Laundry Room really came through.

Jason, Keiran and myself hung the finished prints yesterday, and they will be there for the next month.

If you’re interested in having the exhibition at your agency please get in touch with myself or my agent Mark Gibson.

About Gray Hughes photographer

Gray Hughes grew up in southwest London but has always had strong connections to the USA. He has spent many summers on road trips, visiting family in California. In his early twenties he moved to New York and assisted various fashion photographers before returning to London to shoot editorial sports and lifestyle. He soon graduated into shooting commercially for brands including Coca-Cola, Asics, Nike, Adidas, Reebok and Powerade. Gray has always loved film and music – his mother exposed him to Hitchcock at an inappropriately young age. As a young teen he used to record music demos on a four track recorder. Then in 2001 he took a break from photography to pursue a career in music, remixing dance music for four years before returning to his first love, photography. Gray’s personal projects have taken him to cowboy country in Montana, USA as well as Rio de Janeiro and more recently, around the grassroots rugby clubs of Britain. His film, ‘Heartland’ was a finalist in the 2015 AOP awards, with the accompanying photographs featured in the Sunday Times Magazine. He directed his first commercial for Glamorgan Brewing Company in 2015 and then subsequently joined Ridley Scott Associates where he was added to the photgraphy and moving image roster, he is on an indenpendent arrangement while he grows his show-reel so is free to collaborate with other production companies. So far this year he has directed films for Reebok and Standard Life and has shot a global advertising campaign for Vodafone.
