Mead Carney Fine Art is pleased to announce a new selling exhibition of photography by Rich Hardcastle.

Mr Detective Man presents an insightful, thought-provoking and playful critique of contemporary culture framed through a stylised and cinematic narrative that draws on the familiar tropes of the crime thriller and the police procedural.

Hardcastle has cast some of the world’s most recognisable faces in this striking visual drama, with model-of-the-moment David Gandy providing a powerful and poignant presence as the story’s eponymous protagonist.

Supported by a high-profile cast including Jacob Anderson (Game of Thrones), Paul Anderson (Peaky Blinders) and Adam Hills (The Last Leg), a darkly comic narrative is played out through a series of familiar yet darkly dissonant scenes that follow Gandy from hospital bed to interrogation room to morgue slab.

‘Rich Hardcastle brings excitement back into photography. His ideas are truly inspiring. You never quite know exactly what mad idea he has planned until you get to the shoot. He's a true creative, a true artist.’ 
 - David Gandy

Hardcastle’s highly-detailed portraiture combines an intelligent and acutely-observed visual humour, frequently imbued with a quiet pathos. His striking, highly original aesthetic has attracted industry-wide acclaim and has led to commissions from publications including Rolling Stone, Esquire and Harper’s Bazaar.

During his 25 year career, Hardcastle has worked with a roster of stars of stage and screen including Ricky Gervais, Billy Zane, Michael Sheen, and Stephen Fry.
