Description - Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad
For the latest in the Four Corners Familiars series, artist Fiona Banner (born 1966) recasts Joseph Conrad's novella Heart of Darkness as a luxury magazine with new photographs by Magnum photographer Paolo Pellegrin. First published in 1899, Heart of Darkness is a story of trade and corruption that proceeds from a boat moored on the banks of the Thames into the heart of the Congo. For her new edition, Banner commissioned Pellegrin, a conflict photographer who has worked extensively in the Congo, to photograph London's financial center, its streets and trading floors, its costumes and strip clubs--the City of London as seen by a veteran war photographer. The collaboration between Banner and Pellegrin emerged from an initial invitation from Peer, London, to work with the collection of the Archive of Modern Conflict; a selection of Pellegrin's images are now part of the Archive, filed under "Heart of Darkness, 2014."
