Hidden Lens

posted by Bridget on 31 January 2014

Exciting news, Schilt Publishing has released the first monograph of Emmy Andriesse's photography, with text by Louise Baring.

I still have in my mind's eye Emmy Andriesse's portrayal of the Amsterdam "hunger winter" of 1944-1945 that I first saw at the 2006/7 Barbican exhibition In the Face of History
European Photographers in the 20th Century.
Haunting and desperate with a wisp of beauty, these photographs made a powerful impact on me.

So I was delighted to discover that Schilt have pulled together a monograph of her work, spanning 17 years and drawn from her archive of over 14,000 negatives.

You can buy the book direct from the publisher, or from independent book sellers including The Photographers Gallery, which is where I will be getting my copy. Although more expensive than Amazon, I know the extra money will go in support of the gallery and publisher so they can keep producing interesting photographic projects.

Paul Gaffney Exhibition

posted by Bridget on 30 January 2014

It is just under a year ago that I first met Paul Gaffney at The FORMAT International Photography Festival and was very taken with his book We Make the Path by Walking.

I was not alone in an appreciation of Paul Gaffney's meditative journey through Europe and he has gone on to have a one day show at Flowers Gallery in Cork Street, published his book which has nearly sold out and is not to have an exhibition at ffotogallery, which opens on 7th February.

So if you are in or near Cardiff I can highly recommend a visit to Ffotogalley in Penarth.

By moonlight

posted by Bridget on 29 January 2014

Darren Almond has made his reputation on photographing landscapes with only the light of a full moon.

The results are slighty eerie, shadowless landscapes, which at first glance seem to have been taken in daylight. There is a heaviness in the blacks and a general feeling of an overcast flat light which smooths out and softens the edges pushing the resulting image as a half way hybrid between a photograph and a painting.

An exhibition of his moonlit photographs To Leave a Light Impression are on show at White Cube until April 13th 2014.

Pikin Slee

posted by Bridget on 28 January 2014

Fashion photographer Viviane Sassen's third solo show at the Stevenson Gallery, Cape Town has just opened.

Viviane Sassen has been visiting Pikin Slee, the second largest village on the Upper Suriname River, deep within the rainforest of Suriname, since 2012. The resulting photographs are a mixture of tight landscape, abstract still life and gentle portraits, which together create a visual delight. A book has been promised to come out in the Spring, so this is going on my Easter present list.

Pristine Landscapes

posted by Bridget on 27 January 2014

Walter Niedermayr's beautiful ski slope landscapes from The Aspen Series make me want to have another go at sliding down the white stuff

Walter Niedermayr is interested in how the natural and man-made interventions come together to create new spaces and not also with the best of results.

There is a dark intent of a green political agenda in these multi-framed and multi-layered photographs, but despite this Niedermayr's images convey a joyous meeting between a bountiful nature and man's desire to engage and enjoy it.

The wonder of earth is its suitability for humans that reside and prosper on it; without us the planet would be pointless.
