"There are many fine documentary photographers working today but David Chancellor is one of the finest. London born, his work brings him across the world, from the tribal lands of Kenya to the somber mountains of Scotland. His interests are mapping that jagged and bloody line where Man and Beast meet. This excellent retrospective also highlights the other node in David’s universe: his family. You will be hard pressed to find more touching images of mother and child in contemporary photography. Ultimately each body of work activates the other: loss and love intertwined forever."
