Postcards from Babylon

Christian de Sousa

"Postcards from Babylon" is a book of photography and writing about cities, subcultures and the state of the world. It is a portrait of the way we are living, and it is a journey in search of freedom, transformation and the remembrance of who we are.

Emerging from leftfield traditions of reportage photography and writing, it weaves together influences from film, graphic novels, poetry, meditation, electronic music and the dancefloor, to create an entirely new kind of photobook.

To officially launch the book, the gallery will be filled by a light installation inviting visitors to 'step inside the book'.

Can Ts Pelle

C.A. Halpin

A journey celebrating the overlooked, the left behind and the lonely. Using a camera as a sketchbook the artist takes images of her surroundings, events and objects, made memorable by being noted and seen. It is the idea of drawing and the wry wit on the spur of the moment that is found in these images.

Carole Suety and Matthias Olmeta

Carole Suety, Matthias Olmetta

Carole Suety will be showing her latest work alongside her previous series ‘Globe de mariée’ (2009). Through her work she aims to deconstruct western ideologies and myths in order to reveal how they determine our relation to marriage, family, sexuality or death. While ‘Globe de mariée’ explores relationships through the appropriation of an old French tradition of keeping a bell jar to preserve the memories of married life, her new project examines the construction of the female identity using unsettling still-lifes.

An established photographer whose work has recently been shown in New York as part of a group show with agnès b. , ‘Certain French young photographers’ and after Photomonth moves to ‘Paris Photo’. Don’t miss in store at Spitalfileds.

It is there. It is always there; that desire to take a photograph - not a work of art - but a photograph. An object suspended with a future in view; an impassive precursor. The object is always recognizable, biographical, narcissistic and obsessive. Nothing eludes us in this already substantial body of work, because everything is here. After so many years it is part of him: psychiatric patients met in Cuba, transvestite friends, encounters with prostitutes, and finally most importantly - his family. Add to this list the phallus, the importance of which cannot be excluded, as its story integrates with that of his photography.
An object among other objects, an autonomous animal that binds together this little world as an essential hidden presence, dissolving and merging into a monstrous chaos. We are oblivious as to how it is done, but what results is a Photograph. Chemical and handmade, its very existence defies the industrial act and new technology. We catch a glimpse of elements which in the past have been regarded with disdain a love of texture, of the fusion and confusion between sensations and affects. These images subvert the discourse of contemporary critics. As the monochrome nuances of the substance-matter, essential to our perception, is a far cry from a neo-picturalism long gone.
The moment the people and objects are impregnated with this hazardous alloy straight from the 19th century we are confronted with an almost mystical feeling and forced to contemplate them, hieratic, the consequences of some mysterious recovery. The photographs cannot be categorized as aesthetic and ascribe little importance to reality. Constantly manipulated they are soiled and damaged, to ultimately become glorified. Above and beyond the filter of a machine, the photographic act enables a life experience to be assimilated and digested. François Cheval

Taking a Stance: Advocacy, Journalism and Human Rights


Is there a shift in photojournalism away from objective documentation towards involved activist participation? Are photojournalists becoming photo advocates- should they be intervening to create change or merely documenting? We are joined by an expert panel including photographer Gideon Mendel, Fiona Rogers from Magnum, Save the Children picture editor Jess Crombie, and others for a discussion to ascertain if we can trust photos with an agenda. The event is chaired by picture editor Colin Jacobson.

True Defiance: What next for Tunisia’s Jasmine Revolution?

In mid January, Tunisia's protesters forced the country's long time dictator Ben Ali into exile – the first expulsion of an Arab autocrat by a popular uprising in recent history. Photographers, film makers and citizen journalists played a key role in the revolution, using social media to communicate with each other and with the wider world. Dr Lotfi Kaabi will join photographer Ons Abid, film maker Yossera Bouchtia and other prominent figures to discuss Tunisia’s rite of passage to democracy and ask whether elections in Tunisia have delivered what the revolution demanded?

Christian Kraatz

Uncertain Truth is a series of street photographs from all over Europe boldly presented as posters on plywood. It tends to show just daily life situations. Moreover there is some kind of mystery in the pictures which is difficult to grasp. A strong presence of something invisible. The way it is presented is an artistic approach reflecting anticipation of destiny. By doing that Christian Kraatz gives an additional layer to the photograph which is underlining it's ability to communicate more than just visual information.

“When I Grow Rich” say the Bells of Shoreditch

Dougie Wallace

Once synonymous with strip clubs, Shoreditch has become one of London’s most popular nightspots, attracting both locals and cultural tourists dipping into the scene for the night. Dougie Wallace has been photographing the area for a decade, capturing a wide gamut that runs from rampant exhibitionism to furtive drug taking. His street photography captures ironic, oblique moments in contemporary urban settings with a focus on youth culture and nightlife. His open and direct approach to documenting sets his work apart, giving it an autobiographical dimension and a candour that draws in the viewer.

Radical London in Focus

David Hoffman, Ed Thompson, Jenny Matthews

London has a proud history of radicalism, of protesting against injustice, inequality and racism, of rising up in favour of a fairer society and seeking to improve the lives of ordinary people. The East End of London has also undergone radical changes within its landscape from the redevelopment following the Blitz of WW2 to the current regeneration created by the 2012 Olympics. Photographers David Hoffman, Ed Thompson and Jenny Matthews have documented different aspects of ‘Radical London’ from the Poll Tax riots, to ‘Reclaim the Night’ and the Occupy movement. They will give talks about their practice and show images of their work during October and November 2012 at the Bishopsgate Institute and author David Rosenberg will give a guided tour exploring the radical history of the streets of East London.

Phil Maxwell

Forty Years On is a taste of Phil Maxwell’s photographic journey from the 70’s to the present.
“As a visual artist photography facilitates my exploration and interpretation of class, culture, human relationships and society... I try to capture and celebrate the reality of life as it is for the majority of people rather than a minority of jaded ‘celebrities’…. ”
Celebrating 40 years of Phil Maxwell’s work and its archiving for public use by the Bishopsgate Institute. The exhibition will take you on a journey from his youth in Liverpool to his life and passion for the East End of London.
Housed in two venues - the Bishopsgate Institute & Rough Trade – you will experience the vibrant East End first hand through Phil Maxwell’s lens where the East End is his backdrop and canvass as you walk between venues.

Jenny Matthews became a photographer in the early 80s seeing this as a means of being an activist, of documenting social issues and becoming part of campaigns to change society for the better. She was part of Camerawork, a photographic collective based in the East End of London, which promoted documentary photography. Her own practice was propelled by becoming part of a women’s photo agency Format. As feminists they felt it important to document women’s lives and their struggles. In recent years this has led Jenny to photograph the effects of war on women in other parts of the globe. Tickets £6/£4 concs

LUCE is a series of 12 images created by harnessing the light of the moon and the lights of the city - creating an ethereal and unique glimpse of London at night.
Equipped with only a tripod and using a long exposure setting, the photographer framed the reflections of the moon and city through a tilted attic window in her North London studio. With a series of fluid movements, she captured this series of soft "light paintings" with the night sky serving as the perfect backdrop.

Sumptuous and often melancholic imagery, and a unique take on fashion photography has truly established Surys as one-to-watch. Artworks from her collection, plus brand new pieces will be on display at her first solo London show, 'In absentia lucis - in Absence of light'.

Sury approaches each shot as an auteur, using analogue camera equipment to capture the shots and then painstakingly developing the photographs before printing them and adding her own creative flair with paint, oil, gelatine and other materials. Her photographs are otherworldly, existing somewhere between fairy-tale and nightmare, referencing religious iconography and ritual.

The Fall

Melanie Stidolph

Solo show of photographs and projections by Melanie Stidolph, which extend her recent explorations using motion, light and sound detectors. Naturally occurring and constructed events replace the decisive role of the photographer in triggering images of subjects and objects in tension and suspension.

Stidolph's interest in the idea of 'The Fall' is located in popular photography and art works that engage with the moment before a destructive or fatalistic event, showing the subject on a trajectory that will lead to permanent change, the images are held in the mind's eye as a futile hope in contradiction to the resulting event.

Christopher Gasgoine

INVITED - a series of intimate, narrative studies of ordinary people in extraordinary detail and beauty.

Photography has the unique ability to allow us to see into the lives and circumstances of others. Used with sensitivity it gives us a revealing insight and a shared experience, used with force and immaturity it gives us voyeurism. So if I want to capture openness and vulnerability and the raw edge of someone’s narrative then in return I need to offer listening without judgment, genuine interest and compassion.

I call the process ‘digital camera obscura’ that bears more resemblance to sitting for a

What's the Brief

Andrew Grainger

Andrew Grainger’s first solo exhibition is a selection of personal and emotive images taken in the last five years , a time of reflection after having removed himself of nearly a decade of photographing the fast paced industry of Fashion and Advertising , he has rediscovered his passion for photography by capturing the reality and the spontaneity of his surroundings.
“photography became pleasurable again, not working to anyone else’s brief and it wasn’t measured by success, free to be impulsive and creative without the constraints of an artificial set up..”
Originally from Hartlepool Andrew now lives in Whitechapel.

Urban Notations [Barbican]

Ruth Hommelsheim

Urban Notations [Barbican], is part of a long-term research on urbanity. It presents an analysis of the city based on experience. The artist makes use of the situationist technique of roaming and immersing herself into the flows of the city and their photographic notation. Using the technique of superimposing, Hommelheim emphasizes the multiplicity of contemporary urbanity.
Urban Notations [Barbican] is a project about and exhibited within the Barbican Estate. The artist is wandering through this large scale estate - a city within the city - notating her impressions using the camera.

Emma Levine

Emma Levine’s photographs, taken in Mumbai in 2010, depict the city’s passion for cricket. This isn’t about the stars of the sport, and there are no photos of Sachin Tendulkar, or other superstar millionaires. It's about the ‘Sachin wannabes’, those who have a passion for cricket and play in backstreet, parks, open spaces and housing colonies, often with basic equipment. Scenes like this are to be found throughout the Indian subcontinent, but attention focused on Mumbai in order to see if the grassroots had been influence by the multi-million dollar Indian Premier League, infused with Bollywood glamour. Thankfully, it hadn’t!

Which objects will surround you in the final years of life? And what might they say about you ; about who you are, and who you were? What would you choose to take when moving from a house and home into just one room?

‘Late Fragment’ is a series of photographs taken in resident’s rooms in care homes. The project explores what residents keep with them, whether through necessity or comfort.

You can’t take your possessions with you, but some of them you take to the very end of the very end.

Hugo Elsewhere: The Jersey Studio and the photography of exile online

Victor Hugo and the Jersey Studio

Dr Jann Matlock, Senior Lecturer, UCL French and School of European Languages, Culture and Society

What is it about exile that inspires photography? This talk explores the earliest known exile photography, created in the studio formed by Victor Hugo’s family and friends in their exile on the Channel Island of Jersey between 1852 and 1855. In these years, the Hugo group turned exile into a photographic project, and in doing so, they transformed the history of photography.

The photograph is an uncanny object, fascinating because of the way it doubles the world, stops time and folds one moment of history into another. In this sense it shares the structure of our experience of ‘déjà-vu’.

But it also promises the special quality of recognition and revelation that is associated with ‘déjà-vu’ – a feeling that, in the suspension of time, something that we desire might be revealed, something that links us to our origin in the world, something that we might recognize as being fundamentally true.

Carita Laamanen

‘Façades’ is an intimate depiction of urban life in London. The result of a two-and-a-half year project, it portrays London from the perspective of photographer and writer Carita Laamanen.

“This city is a myth. Its streets are lined with images. These are images of fantasies, made of even the simplest of dreams.”

Photographed on black-and-white 35mm film, Laamanen’s work confronts photography itself as much as it does her subject matter. The intrinsic fleetingness of the photographic image is used to incredible effect in this series of works that question and challenge the commonly perceived façades seen to represent the city we know.

For the third Commission Pictet supported the work of the Tusk Trust, specifically the Nakuprat Conservancy, a new community-led initiative in Northern Kenya.

A series of images shot just prior to the release of the pioneering Nirvana LP 'Nevermind' at Reading Festival by Charlie Hallinan.

Charlie worked as a pro music photographer during the 1980's and 1990's; two defining decades of music in the UK and Ireland.

Art of Imperfection

Pascal Ancel Bartholdi, Ryuji Araki and Bernhard Deckert

This show includes three artists who each make use of this medium with a conscious disregard for flatness, reproducibility and static design entering the quantum realm by unifying the instant and the eternal the distant and the local. Photography moving with a body, transmuted into a personal understanding of the Mandala or fathomed as receptacle of visceral and psychic phenomena, with an accolade to the Dada artists, the anonymous visionaries of medieval times and the creative shamans who painted on rocks and bodies more than 15 thousand years ago.

Barry Sutton, Clare Bowen, Jessica Davies, Sarah Groves.

From the constantly changing skies and skylines to the life that moves through its streets; from its buildings grand and shabby to the detritus that drifts and accumulates in its gutters London provides many opportunities for those with a searching eye to make images both arresting and unsettling. This is an exhibition of the work of four contemporary Londoners who use their cameras to take fresh and vibrant glimpses of the city in which they live, work, play: the city that they love.

Photography and video are used to highlight moral lining of our society that is reaffirmed by this blind reading of life's surface, and all forms of imposed morality are encoded in the flux of static information advertised through a multitude of ideal imagery.

Penny Dampier, Sophie Barr ,Naa teki lebar, Talitha robert

This exhibition of new work by four London artists explores the contradictions of the suburban landscape: light and dark; interior and exterior. These images collectively evoke a yearning for a simpler past but they often hint at something darker. This is a child’s world seen through adult eyes. Works include both prints and projections innovatively installed

I'm A Real Doll

Jenny Bush

I was inspired by the use of dolls by artists such as Hans Bellmer, finding his photographs of dolls unsettling but also fascinating. These feelings were subsequently invoked by images of Real Dolls.
My 'Doll' series started as a venture into combing re-photographed appropriated film images of Real Dolls with text to create my own photographic artworks.

Public/Private. Public brings to mind notions of the open, outside and the urban (shared space and ideas, community etc.), while Private typically implies, perhaps, more notions linked to home, of the inside, the personal, the intimate, unshared or undisclosed, the solitary and the domestic. We have considered how the use of photography may help apprehend both the notions of public and private as separate entities as well as entities that only exist because of each other.

So Close but So Far

Mariona Otero Ibáñez

I always observe the same everyday actions within different cultures. This way the atmosphere captured in a picture is just as valuable as the acts taking place. And through the depiction of these universal acts I show the true personal identity of the places.

‘So Close but So Far’ is a collection of photographs mostly taken in Manchester (UK) and Chennai (South India).

My images are of everyday moments in a regular lifestyle; these are common to the human experience, and for this reason they deserve to be shown to a wider audience.

Home Sweet Home is a guerilla exhibition of portrait photography and cross-stitch samplers that tell the story of a dispersed community. The community are the remaining residents of the Ferrier housing estate in south-east London, which is being gradually demolished. With emphasis on the human experience of regeneration, photographer Anna Batchelor has taken portraits of the remaining residents in the context of the changing estate. Designer Sarah Colson has fused cross-stitch embroidery with quotations from Ferrier residents and imagery from the estates environment. For this exhibition the images are posted onto the boarded up fronts of the Ferrier's empty houses.

The son's photography stands in a direct contrast to the classic composition of the father and draw in a wider circle of subjects. Friends and lovers, parties and the backstreets of 1970s Delhi and Bombay.

‘Brush it in’ is an expression for a wide variety of alterations made to digital photographs after their creation. The transition from analogue to digital post-production yielded an incredible expansion of existing techniques. Adobe Photoshop was originally developed to emulate the physical
techniques of the darkroom. It quickly developed its own
specific vocabulary and it is precisely this language that
Brush it in engages with. Curated by Lorenzo Durantini

We English

Simon Roberts

"Initially, I was simply thinking about Englishness and how my upbringing had been quintessentially English. How much of this was an intrinsic part of my identity? In what ways was my idea of what constitutes an ‘English life’ or English pastimes (if there are such things) different to those of others’? My own memories of holidays, for example, were infused with very particular landscapes; the lush green-ness around Derwent Water or the flinty grey skies – and pebbles – of Angmering’s beaches. It seemed to me that these landscapes formed an important part of my consciousness of who I am."

London: a landscape in transition


Recent work by Mike Seaborne concerned with the evolving urban landscape of London and the Thames Estuary. For over 30 years Mike was Curator of Photographs at the Museum of London and throughout that time contributed both to the ongoing photographic archive and to numerous exhibitions and publications.

Mike is perhaps best known for his work on London's high streets, housing estates and the changing riverscape. This exhibition will feature new work exploring the landscape of the estuary as it faces globalised development pressures such as a major new container terminal and an international airport hub.

London World Class City: Mythical Jerusalem to Olympic Capital

Max Reeves

Max Reeves’ photographs use London as a setting to investigate the intersections and interstitials between life and myth, revealing the complexity of London’s psychological terrain. The actuality of the city morphs into a documentation of personal mythology populated with curious characters, palimpsests, cityscapes, crows, protestors, children Apophenia and aphorisms. Control and authority versus the freedom of the individual and transcendence emerge as themes through layered and often ambiguous images. ‘London is a World Class City’ embraces a poetic critique of the metropolis superseding its geographic locality and political straightjacket.

Jane Sarre

A selection from a series of documentary photographs charting change in the Lea Valley from 2008 to 2012. Captured on annual walks around the boundary of the Olympic site these images track the line of the blue fence as it demarcated and closed the site to local usage. Every inch of the boundary route was recorded to create a rich archive of detail.

Many have watched and recorded the building of the Olympic park. This collection looks outwards to the neighbours overlooking the site: it tells an ambivalent story of growth and decline, commerce and community.

Walking down a street Bill Jackson came across a gold podium and took it home. Later he saw a hatter's modelling head. Thinking it would go well with the gold podium he took that home too.

Bill has a fascination for the found object. Keeping each discovered treasure, Bill has formed a museum of curios. Rummaging in his boxes he selected objects he could stick onto the hatter's head; bits of leather, bones, drawing pins, plasters, syringes. Each one chosen to create both a verbal and visual pun, skin head, leather head, pin head, plaster head...made just for the camera.

Hugh Elphick (UK) Gunnar Knechtel (Spain) Sye Williams (USA)

BEHIND BARS explores life on the “inside” with this photographic group show. Three artists come together to offer a unique glimpse into the coveted world behind prison walls. Knechtel’s images, taken within one of Spain’s most forward-thinking prisons, Madrid VI, allow us a rare glimpse into the living spaces of a baby and parent unit. American photographer, Sye Williams, takes us inside California’s Valley State prison for women. Meanwhile recent graduate, Hugh Elphick, traces the boundaries of London’s Victorian prisons and the spaces they inhabit within our community.
Through these three projects we are afforded a thought provoking discourse on captivity.

Shifting Landscapes

Srinivas Kuruganti Liz & Max Haarala Hamilton

China and India are the fastest growing economies with the biggest populations in the world. Srinivas Kuruganti and Liz & Max Haarala Hamilton's work deals with the themes of rapidly changing landscapes in these countries.

Srinivas’ work focuses on India's coal industry that has through rampant and unregulated mining converted forests into wasteland and made the land uninhabitable for the local population of Adivasis.

Liz and Max's work looks at how, as well as the economic changes, China is also absorbing cultural influences from the West. It is this mix of new and old that is captured in these photographs.

ADRIFT- The Unfamiliar Familiar in Modern Society

David Kendall, Gesche Würfel, Nora Alissa, Manuel Vazquez, Haraala Hamilton, Isidro Ramirez, Simon Rowe, Laura Braun, Paul Smith, Lene Hald

GASKET has assembled ten artists whose photography engages directly with the increasing tension that exists between the familiar and the unfamiliar. For some it is our environment that remains constant, forcing us to seek new forms of interaction in a rapidly evolving set of relationships. For others, it is the world itself that is shifting beneath us, and we seek solace in the familiarity of routine and tangible connections.
The exhibited artists come from diverse backgrounds and theoretical positions, but all share the common experience of being Goldsmiths College alumni who studied the Photography and Urban Cultures (PUC) course.

Travellers Children

Colin O'Brien

I came across the travellers in 1987 whilst I was photographing a deserted warehouse near London Fields. They had parked their caravans, in and around, Martello Street near the railway arches by the station. The travellers were Irish, mostly families with three or four children.
I recorded many images over three weeks and got to know the travellers well. They took me into their confidence trusting me with their children. It was only when I started to print the photographs that I realised what an amazing set of pictures I had taken a quarter of a century ago.

Mirror / Art Event

Janina Fleckhaus, Bradley Barnes

Inspired by German romanticism the photographs are an instantaneous mirror of memory, they leave a motionless trace of what has been, a fixed imprint of something that is no longer what it was before, a silent simulacrum of people and places who have disappeared forever from our field of vision. Colours and figures blend together like washes of paint and after closer contemplation photography and painting becomes united.

Laura Cuch

The life-changing experience of having an organ transplant has an impact on senses of identity. Some individuals have experienced taste, personality, or behavioral changes after an organ transplant, which they sometimes relate to the traits of their donors. Trans considers these new identities and how they are woven into personal narratives by the recipients. Trans is the third part of a trilogy following Sleepless (about people who sleep very little) and No Ma (about women who know for various reasons that they will never be mothers). In all three projects, the details of each image are arrived at collaboratively.

[new] Futures:Understanding China Using Cropped and other 'Taken' Images

Chris Barrett

Introducing the iconic policy of birth planning, which is often referred to as the ‘one-child policy’ by the outside world. [new] Futures presents the formal imagery of the modern Chinese family coupled with ‘taken’ images, found from Weibo - the Chinese version of twitter. The exhibition touches upon an enduring exploration into the intended and unintended by-products and ramifications that the policy has been responsible for. In an ongoing dialogue between the photographer, Chinese nationals and the world-at-large, an interesting visual perspective emerges in regards to the People’s Republic of China, it’s populus and the people amongst the population.

Halsnoy Tales

Brijesh Patel

Lost in the vast fjords of southern Norway, the tiny island of Halsnoy is crisscrossed by slim roads and dirt tracks. My mind was a mix of dream figures of the Norwegian folktales and of the recent images of the shooting tragedy that had taken place on the island of Utoeya .
All of this resonates in my 'Haslnoy Tales'.
Created in September 2011 during an artist residency on the island of Halsnoy, Norway.

A dynamic show of images shot in cities including Tokyo, Madrid, New York, Budapest and San Francisco. Our ideas of a metropolis are formed through imagination and cinema as much as through experience. This exhibition takes as its subject the cityscape – its centre and its margins, exploring the idea of a city rather than representing specific places. This body of work is also featured in the accompanying book – ‘metropolis’

This is the first exhibition at the new Hackney Picturehouse and forms part of a series of special opening events in November.

Prisoners, Pastimes and Pine

David O' Shaughnessy

The work is about taking objects to another place through recycling and fabrication. The image content evokes emotions enforced by the starkness of the objects against the clinical white surroundings. The narrow depth of field focuses on seemingly random yet insignificant and deliberate areas of the objects. The careful use of focusing as a tool guides the viewer through the shapes and forms within. Fire has many positive and negative effects, whilst it can provide a comfort it can also alter, resulting in catastrophic consequences. The photographs document the process of the re appropriation of the objects

Other I

Viviane Sassen, WassinkLundgren, and more. Curated by Aaron Schuman.

Faced with legitimate criticism during the latter half of the twentieth century, photography shifted from a medium often used to explore, explain and express the foreign/unfamiliar, to one used to examine, reveal and define oneself. In 1984, Andy Grundberg noted a shift occurring specifically within documentary practice, ‘…towards recording the “I” instead of the “Other”…’. This exhibition features several contemporary practitioners who cleverly redress this balance by turning direct encounters with the ‘Other’ into forms of self-exploration and subtle autobiography, equally emphasizing what's in front of the camera – ‘Other’ – and what's behind it - 'I'.

Mark Peter Wright

Mark Peter Wright’s first solo exhibition at IMT Gallery is a multimedia installation exploring sensorial experience, history and discourse with reference to a unique site of the reclaimed land of South Gare. As a source of dialogue between the landscape and its occupation, between the urban and the rural, and between its 19th Century manmade origins and the gradual influx of nature, South Gare is home to some major social, commercial and ecological frictions. The exhibition combines photography, film, text and objects to connect the dots between past, present and future conditions of the site and its relationship to change.

The photographs are my attempt to capture a glimpse of their personality at this point in their life as they are going through an important transformation into adulthood. The images also become a memory for us all before they leave the College. Alongside the photographic exploration of youth identity, large format self-portraits produced over the years by my former students are also exhibited.

If On A Winter's Night A Traveller...

Jo Phipps

An image of literate interiority can function as the very sign of the human in an age of capitalist distraction. Drawing on art history and literature Jo Phipps’s work explores issues of beholding and absorption within the space and look of reading.

Rhona Eve Clews

“…the nature of my sculpture is not fixed and finished. Processes continue in most of them. Chemical reactions, fermentations, colour changes, decay, drying up. Everything is in a state of change” (Joseph Beuys, 1979).

Rhona's work examines photography's attempts to freeze, capture and retain that which is in a state of transformation.

Exploring forgotten corners and spaces, where dust settles and materials disintegrate, light, weather and time become sculptors: edges dissolve, identity’s blur, new forms emerge.

Through the act of photographing the quotidian is elevated above the everyday, and the audience is invited to intimately gaze at an otherwise unobserved event.

Fraction of the second: Private, Incisive and Explosive

Smita Malde, Falk-Hagen Bernshausen, Elisabeth Blanchet

Capturing a moment in a picture is one of the key elements in photography. Defined by Henri Cartier-Bresson, it is all happening in that fraction of the second – creativity, urge and emotion of capturing that particular moment. “Once you miss it, it’s gone forever.”

Three photographers define ‘this moment’ with their own interpretations. Smita Malde peeps into somebody else’s moment as they are being photographed; Elisabeth Blanchet explores the subject’s changing behaviour seconds in front of the camera; Falk-Hagen Bernshausen manages to ‘freeze’ that decisive second in the fast paced rhythm of Muay Thai boxing inside ‘Team Red Dragons’.

Metapocryphal Chimera

Pascal Ancel Bartholdi

The title reflects the play of interlocking layers within the imagery itself. Each work is a tableau, a visual pun and a mythical narrative .This project comprises three series. 12 Nights and a Queen, History Beasts, and Mythological diaries, all 12 by 16 prints. Linear time is deconstructed through the superposition of spaces as well as through the direct association of people and environments in whose presence real time plays a subordinate part. The memento mori pervasive to portraiture allied to the broken narrative of unidentifiable history lie at the root of this project.

Rosie Mayell | New Photographs - Pop up Exhibition of recent work

Rosie Mayell

Images from Asia and Europe taken in the past 18 months.
Curious about people and the quirks of everyday life. Rosie studied Fine Art at Chelsea College of Art. Her photographs are often voyeuristic in nature with a strong reference to painting and a nod to Martin Parr, Sophie Calle and Henri Cartier - Bresson. "I am interested in recording the beauty of the banal and the everyday... the exotic and the unknown... ultimately things that amuse or touch me (interactions, details, light, walks, gestures, shadows, signs, windows, grafitti, the sea) ...whether they are at home or abroad, familiar or not".

Dhaka rickshaw riders at work

Kristian Buus

Cheapest mode of transport in Dhaka, Bangladesh is the rickshaw. Traffic in Dhaka is fierce and the heat is excruciating and riding a rickshaw is hard work. All rickshaw riders in Dhaka are men and most do not own their rickshaws but pay a daily rental fee out of their modest daily income. The exhibition is a series of close-up shots of concentrated men pushed to their limits in the midst of Dhaka traffic, all caught in moments of powerful determination.

Shadows of Doubt: A Psycho-geographical Journey Through Hitchcock’s East End Childhood

The images in the exhibition exploit the ambiguity that arises out of doubt and uncertainty about Hitchcock’s early life. Many people see the origin of Hitchcock’s work in his childhood, but what do we really know about his childhood experiences?

The photographs of David George and Spencer Rowell enquire into Hitchcock’s early memories and the possibility of them being the catalyst for his imagery, charged with childhood fears and anxieties. George looks at the exterior and Rowell the interior.

24 Nov 2-6pm
Speakers include Dr Nick Haeffner, acedemic and writer on Hitchcock. David George and Spencer Rowell will discuss their work, plus other speakers. Afternoon Tea. Tickets and further information from:-

A Chain of Wooded Mountains

KEEM is a collaboration between artists Kate Elliott and Emma McGarry. It was established as an exploration into the nature of collaboration. Through methodology, ongoing discussion and debate, KEEM produces work which continuously questions subjectivity, materiality and identity.

Last October KEEM travelled to the Balkans, taking 3 cameras and shooting 1237 photographs in 10 days. What happens when two people take the same trip, hold the same cameras, and then reflect separately but side by side?

Both members of KEEM have made a personal edit of 80 images from the original 1237 photographs. For this exhibition, they will both select and display a series of diptychs previously undisclosed to each other - opening up the first chance for conversation, comparison and influence.

Maria Coletsis

Burlesque Dress is a collection of portraits taken in the backstage dressing room of a burlesque show, only moments before performance. The images capture a glimpse of the intimate moments of transition to become someone else. The trance- like concentration of this process of change is what inspired this series. The dressing room explores how we socialize, transform our personas and reflects upon what we do to escape the daily routine. My work investigates issues surrounding identity and sexuality.

The Dead Historians Society

Sanna Charles

This project is about the members of The Dead Historians Society; a non-curricular after school society put together by a group of 16 to 19 year old students at Bsix, a state run Sixth Form College in East London. Members of the Society share an understanding of the power and importance of learning beyond that of grades, they have also each found themselves here in England because of conflicts in their own countries. My role as a photographer has been to give the society a voice to explore their own place in modern History in the UK and the World.

Starting a puzzle: Personal projects

Smita Malde, Elisabeth Blanchet, Falk-Hagen Bernshausen

A personal project is like a puzzle, by joining more and more pieces together, you start revealing the bigger picture, a pattern starts to emerge, a projects begins and a story starts to take shape.

Three London based photographers are exhibiting pieces of their own personal ‘photographic jig-saw’. This eight-week show will show two sets of on-going projects per photographer – each running for four weeks.

Chance Would be a Fine Thing

Brendan Delaney, Teresa Levitt, Hugh Look, Peter Luck, Heather Martin, Ingrid Newton, Katrin Nodop, Stefanie Reichelt, Krystina Stimakovits, Edith Templeton, Chris Tribble, Ariadne Van de Ven

12 photographers from the Central Group of London Independent Photography respond to the theme of chance.

As photographers, we like to give the impression that we are totally in control but, despite the current trend for staged or constructed imagery, one of photography's defining characteristics is its susceptibility to chance. The photographer chooses the subject, selects the aperture and shutter speed, frames the composition, but the moment the shutter is released, chance plays a part. An expression or gesture changes, light imperceptibly shifts, a figure crosses our field of vision. The serendipitous moment then becomes ‘a fine thing' indeed.

MINDFULNESS by photographer Nicolas Laborie is a portrait project highlighting the benefits of meditation based on the teachings of mindfulness. The practice inherited from the Buddhist tradition.

As a practiced Buddhist and mediator himself, Nicolas sets out to capture that most intimate moment when the sitter slips into the quiet peace of meditation and connects with their own consciousness.

The result is a series of simple, honest and strangely commanding images that are inviting the viewer in to join them in the moment.

The project is in association with MIND, Corby.

Shit London online

Patrick Dalton

Shit meaning – unspecified item(s), ‘stuff’, ‘thing(s)’.

NOT, ‘London is shit’. I love this city.

These are photographs of the unintentional human comedy that surround us in the city. It’s the flotsam and jetsam of city life , the overlooked minutiae, the tragic, the grotesque and the basest of base. It’s the adapted posters, the dirty joke on the back of a van, the mispelt signs, the glory hole in the public loo, that weird shop down the end of your road and the knob graffiti strategically placed for maximum effect.

Out of the Loop online

Graham Barker

‘Out of the loop’ is a series of photographs of plastic waste in the Regent's Canal, Hackney.

These images have been carefully selected for their an ‘ambiguous’ appeal – looking surprisingly life-like, more like strange organisms discovered in the barren depths of our deepest oceans than plastic bags affected by the harsh conditions of the canal.

‘Out of the loop’ refers to waste material that has escaped recycling and which cannot compost or safely biodegrade into the natural environment.

Riverbed Stories online

Mandy Williams

The work I am showing is from Riverbed Stories (2012), a series of photographs that document the riverbeds beside the industrial area of Erith, South London. In the past year the river has become increasingly polluted and choked with debris. Mattresses, chairs, televisions, and car tyres litter the beds, along with handless gloves, floating shoes and discarded baby carriages.
In an area of natural beauty, these riverbeds tell a story about the profit and greed of the waste disposal companies and the local council’s difficulty in protecting the environment.

Urbanality online

Graham Barker

‘Urbanality’ is a visual exploration of the ordinary and the mundane, presenting a series of analogue, double-exposures of buildings – either decadent or brutally bland. These ‘chance’ images provide an alternative way of seeing the all too familiar architecture in our towns and cities, recreating them as ‘castles in the sky’.

Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead): a homage to you in Hackney online

Alix Edwards

This exhibition is inspired by mexican Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) which is celebrated on November 1st and 2nd each year. In Mexico friends and family gather together to celebrate and pray for family members and friends who have died. Alix Edwards documents what we do in East London to celebrate and let go of our loved ones when they have died, particularly in unexpected or tragic circumstances and she hopes these images will inspire us all to ask what we can do as individuals to prevent such deaths from happening in the future.

“In Wait” is a visual essay on the Haggerston West & Kingsland estates in Hackney, east London, in the process of demolition and re-building. The 56 photographs document the spaces left behind when people were moved out. Despite residents living in limbo for over 30 years as refurbishment plans were continuously proposed, shelved and re-proposed, the images highlight their innovative solutions to the difficulties of continuing to live while an idea and a set of buildings were being abandoned around them.

Shit London has been capturing the unintentionally funny, the weird and depressing mundane side to London street photography for just over two years.

This is a photographic archive of London at it's most candid and it's funniest.

E5 - Chatsworth Rd and Surrounding streets

Guilherme Zauith

E5 is a postcode district within the Borough of Hackney, East London where there used to be a big street market on Chatsworth Rd. During the 1970s recession it started to shrink, with the last four stalls closing down in the mid 1990s.
In the late 1990s young artists and students began to moving to the area, triggering re-generation. There are now coffee shops, a delicatessen, a creperie, bars and other new businesses. In 2011 a Traders and Residents Association was formed to give a voice to the local community. The Olympic impact in the area can only be speculated.

Past Perspectives

Colin O'Brien

Colin O’Brien was born in London and his pictures record the passing decades in this great capital city. His black & white photographs look back over sixty years. The urban landscapes capture people off guard in run-down buildings and streets which have now been cleaned up or demolished.

The commonplace is so often overlooked but it could be argued that these images are an important documentation of a way of life that has long since ceased to exist.

This unique personal archive allows us to look back at our recent past.

A joint exhibition examining the surfaces and depths of two buildings.

After purchasing a discontinued model house made by Hornby, artist Paul Greenleaf tracked down the original building the model was based on, a semi-detached house in Margate built in 1971. The resulting work is a visual deconstruction and subsequent reconstruction of the ubiquitous ‘modern’ house.

Paul Tucker has photographed the William Morris Gallery in Walthamstow during a major refurbishment. He records the interior of the building in a process of change, revealing layers of its past as well as showing the creation of a new layer for the future.

It undertakes the lessons to be learned from the journey and the visual knowledge that the nature traces itself.

A collaboration by two urban photographers who have each photographed the London Borough in different decades.

Alex Pink lives, works and photographs in Hackney and East London. He has revisited the places where Conolly once stood, and photographing in colour has documented the differences, presenting an intriguing and fascinating insight into the changeable nature of urban spaces; some locations are almost unrecognisable whils others remain surprisingly similar.

Central St Martins' postgraduate certificate in photography provided a platform for an eclectic mix of emerging photographic talent. Following the final show of the course in June 2011, seven recent alumni have come together to celebrate its contribution to the London art scene and to their practice.
The themes traversed in the exhibition include quasi-futuristic spaces, identity and representation, stillness and connectedness, fashion and the object, and the ephemeral nature of photography in relation to the environment. These are approached through an equally diverse range of photographic processes, from large format to digital, pinhole to the use film as matter.

‘if you leave’ is a collection of contemporary photography. Snapshots of a journey made by wanderers who study the mysterious yet uncannily peaceful feeling of desolation and loneliness. It is more concerned with the impact of a single image, rather than a body of work by an individual photographer.

As a collection ‘if you leave’ features the work of over a 100 different photographers.

In celebration of the release of the second book, curator Laurence Tarquin Von Thomas and Radio Hair Salon are presenting a selection of prints.

is hanging work at the Rag Factory (Apricot Gallery). We have formed from a patchwork group of disparate shutter merchants and assorted semioticians. Our avocation is to formulate a theory of pleasurable regard. This is our first group show and like any is a coat of many colours but underpinned by an infatuation for the medium. Never mind the width, feel our quality.

CONFESSIONS was devised by curator Charlotte Meddings after a series of event that left her questioning what CONFESSIONS we all hold secretly inside.

Meddings commissioned and selected the works of five London based photographers who all responded to a simple brief, take up to ten portraits including a self portrait. Each sitter must agree to confess to something they have done in their lives.

The twist - each confession is anonymous to the audience, never is the images and confession shown together.

This exhibition features portraits of people from all walks of life and a wall of text displaying their CONFESSIONS.

Reflections in Pubs & Bedrooms

Estefania Araujo, Sophie Polyviou

An exhibition of portraiture approached from two opposing angles: Estefania Araujo looks into people's bedrooms, exploring the unique and intimate spaces of routines and private moments, from daily breakfast to afternoon naps; while Sophie Polyviou bases her portraits of young people in pubs and cafes, public spaces where people meet each other to socialise, and they open up about being the 'lost generation' created by the current recession. Juxtaposing the different faces we wear in our own rooms and when in public, the projects are tied by themes of identity, and how we find our place in the world.

Four years later, the project incomplete and unsatisfied by his stills, Leo began to delve into video. His documentary ‘Blood Line’ will premiere on More4 later this year. Roof Unit is delighted to invite Leo to discuss his project examining the process of moving across to video and the new perspectives a photographer can bring to a multimedia project.

Callieach & Brigid

Sioban Beaton

This project was inspired by women in Celtic mythology. Brigid (pronounced ‘Breeje’) represents the stirring of life again after the dead months of winter and is ‘the flame in the heart of all women’. The ancient goddess Cailleach (pronounced Kye-lukh) also referred to as a ‘divine hag’ embodies winter. She freezes the ground and battles against spring. The winter brings the spring and in death she is endlessly renewed. On the paper a shadow is left as an incomplete and enigmatic trace. The connection between the character, body and its imprint leads us to complete the imaginary three-dimensional figure.

Phil Maxwell Forty Years On, A Retrospective

Phil Maxwell

Forty Years On is a taste of Phil Maxwell’s photographic journey from the 70’s to the present.
“As a visual artist photography facilitates my exploration and interpretation of class, culture, human relationships and society... I try to capture and celebrate the reality of life as it is for the majority of people rather than a minority of jaded ‘celebrities’…. ”
Celebrating 40 years of Phil Maxwell’s work and its archiving for public use by the Bishopsgate Institute. The exhibition will take you on a journey from his youth in Liverpool to his life and passion for the East End of London.
Housed in two venues - the Bishopsgate Institute & Rough Trade – you will experience the vibrant East End first hand through Phil Maxwell’s lens where the East End is his backdrop and canvass as you walk between venues.

Vinyl Replay

Constantine Gras

"Vinyl Replay is a unique visual exploration of my record collection. In the studio and on location, I used long exposures, often with a camera in motion, to reinterpret my dusty and scratched vinyl records. These records range from 1966 when the Beach Boys filtered across my mum's amniotic sac, up until my last days of active vinyl collecting from Mole Jazz in the early 1990's."
Constantine Gras is a multi-media artist.
A short film and book launch will be included as part of the exhibition.

Phil Maxwell

‘Protest’ captures the spirit of protest in East London over the last 30 years. Phil Maxwell has been an active campaigner around issues relating to homelessness, combating racism, and trade union disputes. As a local resident he has also campaigned around issues relating to the so-called ‘regeneration’ of the East End. Phil has accumulated a visual history of struggles in the East End that has added poignancy that could only come from someone who has been closely involved in a range of campaigns.

[GAMES] 2012

Gina Lundy

Throughout the construction of the Olympic site at Stratford, photographer Gina Lundy has been walking the perimeter of enclosed area documenting the rapid regeneration and development happening in preparation for the 2012 Olympic Games.

Concerned with recording the topographic results that external forces such as government policy, economic conditions and developer-led investment have upon the landscape and society, Lundy's photographs aim to explore both on a physical and a psychological level.

Employing different techniques to achieve this aim such as slower analogue film processes and multiple exposures, the viewer is presented with layers of shifting and contrasting surface tensions.

Add to the mix, the day to day life style of a cycle courier with no work benefits or insurance and the family bond that it creates between the riders and you get this.
The show has a documentary feel to it as you journey into a city and sub culture as they breath and grow together.

CINEPHOTO: Photography by Film-Makers

Dan Edelstyn, Mohamed El Laymouni, Hilary Powell, Djonny Chen, Islam El Azzazi, Isabelle Rodriguez, Gillian McIver, Jaime Armengol

Cinema was born out of still photography and has an ongoing relationship with it. Many cinematographers and directors also take still photographs. Some do both as parallel careers; for others, the still photography is a private pastime. As still photography has evolved and developed technically, so has moving image photography. Both now share digital technology for example. Yet they are often seen as being different: experienced differently, practised by totally different sets of people.
This exhibition bring together photographs made by film directors, scenographers and cinematographers, none of whom are “known” as photographers but whose whole world is about making images.

What does it feel like to present one face in public and another in private? What is it like to feel faceless, dismissed and diminished…or to have no identity at all? OUTSIDE-IN explores identity and isolation in the community and asks which side of the picture you are on.

From Heroin to Heroines

Briony Campbell, Elam Forrester, Therese Henningsen, David Roberts and Andrea Luka Zimmerman.

This exhibition traces the journey of the residents of a condemned East End ‘sink estate’ and how they have come to spend their final days reviving the heroines of 18th Century novelist Samuel Richardson. The Haggerston Estate’s blocks were heralded as ‘homes fit for heroes’ only to deteriorate after years of neglect and acquire the label of ‘heroin capital of Europe’. We photographed and filmed the lives of residents as they embody Richardson’s virtuous protagonists after which the estate’s blocks were named.

The exhibition interrogates ideas of home and history, architecture and regeneration, how we’re seen and how we see.

Hoods: Revealed

Maria Coletsis

This series of photographs explores the many faces of the fetish Hood. Often used in sexual practice as a way to remove the face from the process, these portraits incorporate the hood as part of the face. As human beings, we define our identity by our face, which makes them a source of great power. Identity is tied to the face and thus putting a featureless mask on a person is a way of taking away their identity and objectifying them. This collection of portraits does in fact the opposite by revealing a unique identity and face for each hood.

Urban Tracers is a collection of recent graduates from the MA Photography&Urban Cultures program at Goldsmiths College. They focus on the use of photography and other visual media within a humanities research context, offering a range of critical perspectives on photographic practice from within sociology, geography, anthropology, cultural studies and visual arts theory. Drawing on studies of London and other places, as well as personal histories Urban Tracers examines key debates in urban sociology and research including the contemporary organisation of urban landscapes, urban life in relation to cities, and the intersection between human and architectural fabric.

Bella Fenning, Amy Gwatkin, Anna Leader

67 Consequences is a month long residency in a space used simultaneously by three photographers evolving individual projects.

Following the game consequences, each person drawing a section of something then passing it on for the next person to add to, the artists are invited to react to or ignore each other, they are limited to 67 moves of adding or changing their work.

67 Consequences, an arbitrary number referring to the postal address of the venue, acts as a boundary, attempting to remove the possibility of the artists showing ‘finished’ works and instead focus on the idea of process.

Goy’s social documentary approach captures the atmosphere of Smithfield Market, its idiosyncrasies and the local merchants' tenacity in the face of change and threats from the global market.

Jones’ conceptual approach is inspired by images her father took in the early 60s. She has created her own version of the market today, with her father’s same Rolleicord camera, focusing on women in clubs and bars around Smithfield.

Adrian's photography in this exhibition however, reflects a wider area of interest beyond the 'individual" and the "specific" of the fashion shot to the "collective" - and almost abstract, visions of the street.
Some of these images put me in mind of the stark images of Sartre & De Beauvoir shot by Antanas Sutkus in Lithuania.

History in the Heart of Hackney. Photo-Walk led by historian Emily Jost

St John at Hackney Churchyard sits in the heart of Hackney old and new. As the graveyard and public space around Hackney’s medieval village church, it has always been a green oasis. A park for the past 100 years, it remains the final resting place of many generations of Hackney residents from world explorers to royal courtiers, and from shoemakers to plague victims and servants. This tour provides an opportunity to find out more about the site’s history, the people buried here, the memorial masonary and to enjoy the 200 trees at their autumnal best. The tour will finish with a look inside St Augustine’s Tower – Hackney’s oldest building – and climb the 135 steps to the roof for the best views of Hackney and beyond. Photographer Heather McDonough will assist the tour. Meet outside St Augustine’s Tower, The Narrow Way, Mare Street E8 1HR near Hackney Central Station. Tickets £8/£6 concs.

Heliacal means ‘belonging to the sun’ in this show the artists rely directly on sun light and natural materials to create their work. From beautifully surreal chlorophyll prints using the leafs natural chemistry to miniscule gothic ‘fairies’ made from roots, leaves, and dead insects, the show promises to delight and intrigue. Exploiting the artistry of old analogue photographic techniques and offering an alternative to the accustomed slicker digital technologies it reminds us of impermanence, imperfection and incompleteness.

Moments Lost and Other Stories

Carolyn Gaskell

‘Moments Lost’ plays with the notion of found images. The images are anonymous, intimate and secretive; together they form only an incomplete narrative. The series explores the loss, longing and mystery associated with an untold story.

In Other Stories, the transformative nature of size, scale and detail are used to create new meaning and abstract landscape narratives from the mundane and the overlooked.

Medium and large format black and white photography and printing by Carolyn Gaskell.

The Tumbled House

Emma Jane Spain & Jake Green

A duo whose practices are combined from different ends of the photographic spectrum, one artistic and one commercial.
The construction of home in glossy magazines is a fantasy that is doomed to fail; life can’t keep up the facade of a perfect home. The Tumbled House turns the idea of the constructed home on its head and embraces failures as if they were triumphs. Playing with notation of product photography and ideas of nostalgia, fakery and the damaged Tumbled House builds an ugly product for mass consumption.

A contemporary portrait of London, told through its incredibly diverse population.

As the host of the Olympic Games in 2012 the world's eyes were upon London, but the world is already here: 40% of all Londoners were not born in the UK.

This phenomenon is the starting point of In My Country - a series of portraits by Daniel Stier depicting immigrants living in London. In each portrait Pakistanis, Poles, Ghanaians, Indians, Peruvians all don their national dress. The dress serves as a symbol of their cultural heritage and lends their portraits a timeless quality.

Portrait of a City: Standing Very Still

Dominic Harris

This series starts with an anonymous advert on an internet site asking for strangers to suggest a time, date and place within London zones 1 and 2 and then turn up and stand very still. The photographer then enters into an email dialogue to confirm exact details.

Each portrait takes place within 10 minutes of the time given. The participant is sent the chosen, unretouched image by email. If anyone fails to turn up, the portrait, empty of the subject, is still sent out with a consistent note thanking them for taking part in the project.

Thirty-three years on

Smita Malde

This journey started for me in 1979, when I purchased my first camera, a second hand 35mm Pentax and went on a trip as an adult to the land of my grandparents. Both events were key turning points not only in my visual development but also in discovering my roots and questioning my identity, in being a second generation Indian, born in Kenya. My images from the 70’s to the present reflect this dichotomy of seeing my ancestors’ country with eyes of an insider/outsider. This show takes you on a personal/visual quest which still carries on to this day.

Square E1

Anthony Jones

An exhibition of black and white silver gelatin prints of the Square Mile.
Anthony Jones was born in London in 1962. Since the late 1980's he has developed his fine art photography practise working with a Hasselblad camera and black and white silver gelatin prints.
Though many of his black and white photographs were taken in the city of London, they are about the spirit of a place, not the geographical location itself. The aim being to convey a sense of mystery about the figures and to question their purpose. His work follows a modernist tradition, creating the city in dark shades, a haunting place. Roger Watson, curator at the Fox Talbot Museum has compared his work to that of Bill Brandt and Paul Strand. His work has been published widely including the British Journal of Photography, Victoria and Albert Museum Magazine and features in many corporate and private collections. In 2011 his work was exhibited at the George Eastman House and featured on the blog of award winning book and exhibition designer Elizabeth Avedon.

For Our Freedom Years

Kerry Clark, Gemma Donovan

For Our Freedom Years is a reaction to women's 'culture', to the idea that as women we share the same ideals, beliefs, ethos and problems, fundamentally the same identity. An identity that is expected and in many cases embraced by females in mainstream society. This exhibition and collective brings together two female artists who draw upon their experiences as women in order to re-evaluate the notions of femininity, it exploits the ideology that we as women are the same in order to re-evaluate how they feel about what they are supposed to represent and the women they are meant to be.

"I observed the people of my environment; those I interacted with on a day to day basis. I found artists with a strong, genuine moral strength, who had become immersed in their own creative spaces; caught up in their own worlds.
Having shot portraits of them, it soon became apparent that I was left with intimate portrayals of each; each card, each picture with a unique story to tell, each relating to a particular character from the deck and their experience of the place represented; a modern day interpretation of an ancient tradition".

Kate's Journal

Astrid Schulz

he project ‘Kate’s Journal’ started in January 2010 when Kate Sims was diagnosed with breast cancer. Despite her devastation she asked photographer Astrid Schulz to take some pictures of her, depicting the way she looked before the operation. Astrid suggested continuing the photo sessions during the different phases of treatment until full recovery. The result is a sensitive and compelling series of portraits.

The exhibition ‘Kate’s Journal’ and the incorporated events aim to give other cancer patient (and their next of kin) an insight into the treatment with a supportive note.

Punch Professors in England

Tom Hunter

It is 350 years since Samuel Pepys recorded the first sighting of a Punch puppet in England. To celebrate this anniversary, Tom Hunter has created portraits of contemporary Punch practitioners, known since Victorian times as ‘Professors’. The portraits depict each Professor with their booth, expressing their highly individual approaches to their appearance and performance in typically English settings. Hunter says, “The Punch and Judy booths themselves are something to behold, each one uniquely decorated and adorned with a beautiful, hand painted stage drop. They remind me of Dr Who’s TARDIS - miniature theatres transported from another time - but instead of blending into the English environment they transform the locations into whole new worlds of magic and wonder”.
Exhibition curated by Maggie Pinhorn and supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Julia Margaret Cameron: Photographs of Children

Julia Margaret Cameron

Julia Margaret Cameron experimented with an expression of childhood through photography: visually she explored ways in which Victorians thought about childhood, which was not apparent in formal portraiture of the time.

To Cameron, childhood was sacred and children were the embodiment of innocence, but to our eyes many of her photographs of children are sensual images.

Drawing from paintings of angelic half-naked children and poses that refer to Renaissance compositions, Cameron strove to secure a position of high art for mid-nineteenth century photography.

Her mix of imagery and words, gently guide us into the invisible paths we subconsciously create in our minds and direct us on a journey that lead to the tormented struggles of life.

Each image emits a juxtaposition of urban decay and organic life form...along with micro organisms, this combination reflects the effect on our environment.
Come and be drawn by a mixture of photographic images and words.

Out of the Box!

Julia Spicer

Buried deep in cupboards and attics, stuffed into tins and shoeboxes, thousands of black and white family histories lie hidden. Once photography became widely available, we snapped away diligently. Every precious image was retained for posterity, however fogged, blurred or mistakenly cropped.

Out of the Box! is Julia Spicer’s celebration of Walthamstow’s role in this heroic photographic heritage. The Museum’s archive will be augmented with new ‘vintage’ photographs of the local area and its characters and personalities, taken with Ensign cameras originally made in the Borough. It’s a museum show but liberties with history may well be taken.

Prix Pictet Conversations on Photography

Michael Fried, Francis Hodgson, Leo Johnson and John Riddy

Ten per cent of all the photographs ever taken have been taken in the last twelve months. In an age defined by ever increasing numbers of photographic images in art and visual culture, how do we value the contemporary power and importance of photography? Is there a necessary divide between photography as an art form and photography as an agent for social change and mass communication?

Art historian and critic Michael Fried, Photography Critic for The Financial Times Francis Hodgson, sustainability expert Leo Johnson and artist John Riddy debate the distinctive authority of photography within and beyond the gallery walls.

The eminent photographer talks on the land as battlefield and the inscription of memory and metaphor in the natural world.
Simon Norfolk is a landscape photographer whose work over the last ten years has been themed around a probing and stretching of the meaning of the word ‘battlefield’ in all its forms. As such he has photographed in some of the world’s worst war-zones and refugee crises, but is equally at home photographing supercomputers used to design military systems or test launches of nuclear missiles.
His work is widely acclaimed, he has received many prestigious prizes and produced three monographs. He has been described as ‘passionate, intelligent and political’.

Liane Lang

Liane Lang’s new installation at WW Gallery takes its queue from the preserved or recreated living or working spaces of famous figures, designed to allow the viewer to enter temporarily into the past - a museum to the individual life. The projected film is an animation made in Rudyard Kipling’s Vermont house, the site of many traumatic events for his family but also where he wrote many of his best-loved books. The haunting atmosphere of the film gently spills over into the exhibition space, where strange objects, piles of books, pieces of furniture and photographs extend the narrative
