Dave Imms’ work is inspired by the notion of the day-to-day, the things people do with their lives and the overlooked moments that are ubiquitous in our surroundings. Whether meeting surfers on a trip abroad or a chance encounter at his neighbourhood mechanics, Dave is influenced by the feeling of uniqueness in these found experiences.
In recent years his focus has been on creating these moments, making pictures on location and in his studio. Exploring his relationship with the world though a post-documentary lens, Dave’s personal work is often imbued with melancholy – a quality that tends to bring an essence of the uncanny and sublime to his pictures.
