The Face

The Face is a giclee print by contemporary photographer and printmaker Mark Vessey. This high quality, Fuji Crystal Archival Print is from a limited edition of 25 and comes with a signed and numbered COA.

The print depicts a neat stack of The Face magazines. Born in London in 1980, and rebooted in 2019, the iconic British magazine dubs itself “the original, definitive style magazine.” Vessey’s stack runs from March 2000 to June 2003 in (almost complete) chronological order, a perfect square of red and white spines, finish with thumbnail icons and black text: who know neatness could be so aesthetically pleasing?

Vessey is known for his images of vintage collections. From magazines to LPs to perfume bottles, Vessey’s photographs capture the simple beauty that order and uniformity can create. The Face is a must-have for the culture-vulture—and the lover of all-things orderly!

    About the artist
    +

    The work of British photographic artist Mark Vessey is inspired by collections of everyday objects. 

    Driven by his own vintage magazine collection, Vessey photographs neatly arranged stacks of journals, LPs and even vodka bottles. Taken out of context, these collections assume new meanings in Vessey’s work, becoming single objects of aesthetic contemplation, rather than a series of separate items. 

    Vessey explains: “My work is about trying to establish a sense of order. There is comfort in collecting things, studying things that people take for granted, grouping every day objects into such a way that they become something special, seeing how they fit together to become a thing of great beauty.” 

    Vessey has collaborated with Brighton-based DJ, Norman Cook (aka Fatboy Slim), immortalising his record collection through his distinctive photographic approach.
