Photographer David Stewart Turns His Lens On The Faceless World Of Paid Content And The Dehumanisation Of Corporate Globalization

After graduating at Blackpool and The Fylde College, Stewart moved to London in 1981 where he persued a career in photography, rapidly establishing himself as one of the UK’s most highly accomplished photographers.

Winner of the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize 2015, Stewart turns his lens on the everyday—focussing on the advertising agency culture he has long inhabited.

In a brilliant set of images, the vacant souls of Stewart’s subjects play out an exploration of the changing face of the workplace in 2018—with surreal iconography like mouthwash and air fresheners helping depict the dehumanising effect underway as the growth of large, faceless corporations strip individuality from an increasingly globalised workforce.

“It is the people and culture I see around me everyday that influence my work,” the photographer declares. “There is nothing stranger than what I see in real life, which is why my photographs appear slightly surreal.”
