From Dog Walkers to Butchers and Squash Players, there is always this subtle combination of leisure and raw commitment in Dave Imms’ projects. It’s all about ‘the things we do to get by’. Here we uncover the fragile nature of the human condition in these post-game portraits. These harsh, revealing images are strengthened by the dissection of the playing areana with the markings and the natural studio-esque appearance of the courts themselves.
