Irving Penn: Flowers

Penn is well known for his fashion work and associations with Vogue and Issey Miyake. Though he is known as a fashion photographer, he was, above all, an artist. Penn pushed the boundaries of art as well as fashion. Irving Penn once said that photographing a cake can be artCoined a king of still-life, Penn turned portraits of inanimate objects into an art-form. The skilful arrangement of the still-life compositions are at once spare and highly organised. From the 1980s, Penn turned more to colour portraits of flowers, than people: he recognised the inevitable process of mortality in the perfect bloom also being in a terminal state decay.

Hamiltons present an exhibition which entwines the beauty of nature with Irving Penn’s photographic genius.

Ends: Saturday, 16th January.

Julia Margaret Cameron

Julia Margaret Cameron, born in Calcutta in 1815, took up photography on receiving a camera as a gift from her daughter and son-in law, Julia and Charles Norman. For the next eleven years, until her death, she exploded creatively, by the coercive force of her eccentric personality, she made portraits, using family members, servants and local residents as models. Of the camera, Julia Margaret Cameron wrote, “and it has become to me as a living thing, with voice and memory and creative vigour.” Though considered to demonstrate sloppy craftsmanship by contemporaries. She ignored the critics and deliberately used a soft focus and long exposures, instilling an uncommon sense of breath and life in her pictures.

The Victoria and Albert Museum presents over 100 images to mark two hundred years since Julia Margaret Cameron’s birth. The exhibition includes some some not seen before work.

The V&A Museum is in South Kensington, on Exhibition Road, a few minutes from South Kensington tube station. You might want to combine the exhibition visit with a trip to the Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park, which is a short walk from the museum.

Where: Victoria & Albert Museum.
Ends: Sunday, 14th February.
