BIOLUMINESCENCE - fashion and still life photography

Mila Nesterova

On stage everything is exaggerated and lighting enhances the visual aspect of the performance, adding color and depth. I am fascinated by UV lights and how they transform everything into a dazzling explosion of colour. Everything looks more interesting, shadows and flickers of light give objects and people more depth.

Someone I (don't) Know

Magali Avezou

How the other dwells in our imagination? With faceless portraits, this project explores how we interpret someone else’s world. Through traces of the subject’s private sphere, it conveys impressions and sensations that build a sensitive portrait and invite the viewer to create his/ her own story about the character.

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.

Mumbai – A Cricketing Temple

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!

This exhibition of photographs explores religion and is an experiment with the B/W printing technique called 'lithprint'.

Nigel Barklie is a photographer with thirty years experience. For the last ten years he has freelanced on the Daily Mail regularly filling the role of Night Picture Editor.

"With this exhibition I am trying to figure out how my life experience fits with the doctrines of the Catholic Church. It is work in progress so the pictures are far from complete. I would love to hear your reaction by email."

Burlesque Dress

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.

What may seem to be a random chain of photographs is in fact the result of Exquisite Consequence. Beginning in one place and ending in another, a journey of rules, ideas and games is embarked upon, opening up the possibility of an endless narrative of images. Order is brought to this barrage through a limited edition zine, posters and a collection of re-engineered imagery.
