London Photography Exhibitions – Coming Week

This is a London Photography Exhibitions post from our archives. To see the latest London Photography Exhibitions post, click here.

Two exhibitions are ending this weekend: By Set Square, Compass and Eye at South Kiosk in Borough and the Art Kane retrospective at Snap Galleries. South Kiosk, a few minutes walk from Borough Market, exhibits work by artists who build new platforms for the production and display of their work, as well as those who resurrect technologies which were more common in the past but are less prominent today. Visit their website to find out more.

Both exhibitions are free and worth a visit if you have time to spare while waiting for your table for you Valentine’s dinner date! See below for more details.

By Set Square, Compass and Eye

Final days!
Free admission.
By Set Square, Compass and Eye unites the work of Emma Charles and Alicja Dobrucka. The common theme is the feature of a landscape being impacted by economic progress. For Emma Charles the Allegheny mountains between the trading capitals of New York and Chicago are the backdrop. Small tunnels have been drilled through the mountains to allow fibre optic cables to be threaded through, facilitating lightning fast high speed trading. Dobrucka has the changing economic landscape in India as it’s backdrop. High-rise towers are being constructed in Mumbai – an aspiration for the growing middle classes as the new rich move into residential mountainous skyscrapers which tower over slum ‘valleys’.

Free admission.

Guy Bourdin: Image Maker

Guy Bourdin, the French, Fashion Photographer was known for his startling and provocative images which, unconventionally for fashion, told a story, giving the clothes themselves a secondary role. Like his contemporary Helmut Newton, Bourdin worked for Vogue. The two complemented each other according to Bourdin: “Between him and me the magazine became pretty irresistible in many ways… if he had been alone or I had been alone it wouldn’t have worked.” As well as Vogue, Bourdin worked for Harper’s Bazaar and shot campaigns for Chanel, Issey Miyake and Gianni Versace. He is said to be an influence for modern fashion photography icons including Nick Knight and Tim Walker.
This exhibition features over 100 works from the compositional image-maker and is the largest ever exhibition of the influential photographer, charting his career from protege of Man Ray to photography revolutionary in his own right.
