Robin Maddock was recently described by photographer Martin Parr as one of the 'rising stars' of British photography. His first two books have been published by Trolley, 'Our Kids Are Going To Hell' in 2009 and most recently 'God Forgotten Face' which was also his first solo show at the gallery in 2012. Parr added "Maddock’s work clearly demonstrates that he is a force to be reckoned with within the tradition of British documentary photography. In his second book, God Forgotten Face, he builds a narrative around the city of Plymouth that just seems to work; the project is heightened by being “for and against” his now ex-girlfriend. Maddock’s views and snatches of life are both surreal and individual. He has the enviable ability to turn nothing much into something quite profound. The image is of Jesters nightclub from the book and exhibition of God Forgotten Face, and was also the cover of the last Trolley Books catalogue.
