Danny Treacy

Danny treacy's photographs from the series "Them" are powerful & disturbing at the size produced here. Produced life sized and knowing that the costumes portrayed are made out of dis-guarded or lost clothing found on wasteland and in woods must make them bloody terrifying. How did the clothes get there? Who did they belong to? What's the dark or seedy reason for them being left? Then the way they are put together as a complete covered costume puts you in mind of say Buffalo Bill in "Silence Of The Lambs" He currently has a solo show at The Photographers Gallery, London until the 14th September Treacy was born in Manchester and also studied at Stockport College for a while.
