A place unlike and like any other
The vision of Grimhaven is one of beautiful desperation, fascinating decrepitude and inadvertent jocularity. Nestled lovingly between
desolate concrete vistas and the tenuous dreams of urban family mythology, this is a world where irony and transient flotsam collide within the familiar
context of the everyday.
Gordon Arthur is a traveller through this parallel world. Through his captured visions we are witness to the crossing over points in which our
known world and that of Grimhaven merge. He has adroitly captured the essence of his surroundings via a medium that is germane to the subject matter.
