London photography exhibitions this week include Raymond Cauchetiers’s New Wave. An exhibition at the James Hyman Gallery of the legendary photographer of French cinema. The exhibition coincides with the release of a new photo book marking Cauchetier’s 95th birthday. Read on for information on these and some of the other ten best London photography exhibitions on now. Note some London photography exhibitions are closing soon. See below for details.

See our regularly updated London Photography Galleries list. The London Photography Galleries list compliments this post on London Photography Exhibitions, with information on opening times and maps.


Raymond Cauchetier’s New Wave

Raymond Cauchetier is an influential French photographer, best-known for capturing some of the most iconic images which epitomised the seminal films of the French New Wave (La Nouvelle Vague), from which this James Hyman exhibition borrows its name. Raymond Cauchetier’s New Wave staged to coincide with his 95th birthday includes never-before-editioned photographs selected from Cauchetier’s own private archive. The Raymond Cauchetier’s New Wave follows on from Raymond Cauchetier’s first solo London show, held at the James Hyman Gallery in 2010.

Cauchetier’s style is engaging. He is an invisible man, giving the perspective of a fly-on-the-wall during the making of a great film, long before behind-the-scenes publicity shots became ubiquitous.

“A great movie is a universe, the galaxies are intertwined with an apparent and deceptive ease.” Raymond Cauchetier

Famously, when invited to join the elite Magnum agency by Henri-Cartier Bresson, Cauchetier declined: he refused to buy the required Leica camera, preferiing to stick with his trusted Rollieflex camera. Being self-taught himself, the only advice Cauchetier offers photographers is: “follow your own path, and do not listen to advice“.

Shirley Baker: Women, Children and Loitering Men

Shirley Baker, who died last year, was a photographer who chronicled and celebrated life in the streets of working class Manchester. In fact she was thought to be the only woman practising street photography in postwar Britain. She was active at a time when the slums were being demolished to be replaced by tower blocks. Her work included children playing in the rubble of destroyed houses. It was poignant yet conveyed her gentle humour.

The Photographers’ Gallery exhibition is a documentary depicting the clearance programme in inner city Manchester and Salford between 1961 and 1981. The northern industrial towns were often painted as being grim places full of poverty, privation and unemployment during the mid-twentieth century. Shirley Baker set about dispelling the myth, revealing Manchester from a different angle: she is now credited for both portraying the poverty and the resilience of Britain’s fractured postwar society.

The exhibition includes previously unseen colour images by Shirley Baker, as well as the black and white images she was known for. The display opens on Friday 17th July at the Photographers’ Gallery. The Photographers’ Gallery is by Liberty of London, not far from either Oxford Street or Regent Street. There is a great café which also serves nice salads, tea, coffee and cakes.

Ends: Sunday, 20th September, 2015.

Tomoko Yoneda: Beyond Memory

Tomoko Yoneda is considered one of the greatest photographers of her generation in Japan. She adopts an investigative approach to her artistic practice: “awakening memories and feelings related to events from the past, providing the viewer with a moment of deep meditation.” according to Giulia Mutti, AnOther Magazine. She counts her early interest in journalism as a major influence.

“Yoneda seduces us with her images and on first viewing it is easy to miss the clues to the other narratives within the pictures. After reflection we realise that these photographs depict something more complex and troubling.” – Grimaldi Gavin

The Grimaldi Gavin Gallery is in Mayfair, close to Berkeley Square and a short walk from Green Park tube station.
