Darren Almond

Darren Almond (b. 1971, United Kingdom) is a prominent conceptual artist who works in various media including photography, sculpture and video. Almond attends in his work to concepts of time and space, whilst observing industrial aesthetics and public means of transportation: their isolation and sublimation. In his photographic work Almond often uses long exposures which place the passage of time at the center of the creative process. Almond sees time as a meditative state in which the captured objects gain an accumulative quality, raising questions about history and personal and collective memory. Almond was the recipient of the Turner Prize in 2005.
