Charlie Kwai – Overtime
Metro is excited to be supporting British street photographer Charlie Kwai, known for his up close and candid approach to photography as his new project Overtime launches with an exhibition in London, along with a book of the same name.
Metro has produced over 20 vinyl portrait prints for the exhibition in which Charlie peers into the obscure and humorous daily grind of the modern businessman. Bringing into sharp focus the cold, hard truth of working in the city Overtime exposes the side effects of riding the high and lows of the stock market, cutting deals and lifetime of lunch at your desk – an amusing and sobering look at the reality and occupational hazards which come with the dogged pursuit of success.
The series of candid photographs were all shot over a two year period within London’s square mile and feature grey unhealthy looking men, morally beaten up as if the out of control system that they help prop up has well and truly taken them for a ride.
