London Photography Exhibitions April 2017

This is a London Photography Exhibitions post from our archives. Click link to see the latest London Photography Exhibitions.


London photography exhibitions to start April 2017 offer a rather wide range of photography genres: architecture, street, documentary, landscape and portrait. Most noteworthy are British photographer Roger Mayne’s stunning display at the Photographers’ Gallery and a small architectural photography exhibition on the South Bank.

Some exhibitions are ending soon – so catch them while you still can! Read on for further details below.

See the regularly updated London Photography Galleries list. The London Photography Galleries list compliments this post on London Photography Exhibitions, in addition to information on opening times and maps for the London photography exhibitions.



Tate Modern, Millennium Bridge, Switch House, London Photography Exhibitions


Roger Mayne

Free admission before noon every day.
Roger Mayne is one of Britain’s best known documentary photographers. Roger was famous for collaborating with other artists including musicians and architects and having close links with the St. Ives artists based in Cornwall.

Probably Roger Mayne’s most famous work is the black and white documentary photography series – Southam Street – in which the protagonists are the children of the urban street in one of the poorest areas of 1950s London: Notting Hill. While this important work is featured at the show, there is a wealth of work from other projects on display, some not seen in decades.

The work Mayne did for the British pavilion at Milan Triennale in 1964 is probably most interesting for Mayne enthusiasts. That is because Mayne is best known for his black and white documentary photography, and this commission featured colour work of the British at leisure, engaging in sports and other pursuits all shot in a style more familiar to Martin Parr’s followers. The curators Anna Douglas and Karen McQuaid have done an outstanding job in recreating the Milan experience from 1964 as faithfully and meticulously as possible. This includes music from the same composer as the original show and an arc of five screen onto which the carefully choreographed transition of the projects follow Mayne’s own original directions.

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 delicious quiches, salads, cakes and speciality teas.

Free admission before noon every day.

Sacred Geometries

Free admission.
Anise Gallery presents a most noteworthy display of modern photography to mark the gallery’s fifth anniversary. The display features the work of Jim Stephenson, Fernando Guerra, Helene Binet as well as four other photographers. Principally, architecture is the common thread that unites the works, under the theme ‘Sacred Geometries’. There is a focus on work which balances photography as a representation of the ‘real world’ with the use of modern post-production photography techniques that allow artistic manipulation of real-world objects. Most of all, the exhibition is inspired by the writings of Plato and architectural historian Peg Rawes.

Anise Gallery is on Shad Thames beside the South Bank and around the corner from Tower Bridge. Be sure to visit the other, nearby galleries while you are in the area.

Free admission.
Where: Anise Gallery.
Ends: Saturday, 15th April.

Five Finnish Photographers

Closing soon.
Free admission.
What better reason than 100 years of Finland to put on a show of five Finnish photographers? The exhibition at Purdy Hicks features the work of Ulla Jokisalo, Sandra Kantanen, Milja Laurila, Anna Reivilä, Santeri Tuori. While the work of the featured Finnish photographers is remarkable, the high contrast, black and white landscape photography in Anna Reivilä particularly stands out.

Daido Moriyama

Free admission.
Daido Moriyama is a Japanese photographer probably best known for his style of black and white street photography cataloguing the breakdown of traditional values in modern Japan. He counts William Klein and Eikoh Hosoe as his principal influences: he worked as an assistant to Eikoh Hosoe.

This is a permanent display in the Tate Modern in the Artist rooms. In addition to prints of famous Moriyama images hung on the walls, there is a looping projection of dozens of other images – all inspiring.

Tate Modern is on the South Bank of the Thames, and just a few minutes’ walk from St. Paul’s tube station. The shows seems like a perfect drop-in on a walk along the South Bank on a a sunny day.

Edmund Clark: War of Terror

Free entry.
British photographer Edmund Clark gained access to Guantanamo Bay detention facility in Cuba where the U.S. government held enemy combatants during the War on Terror. Clark also photographed a house which was subject to a Control Order. Control Orders were introduced by the British government as a counter-terrorism measure. The idea was to restrict an individual’s liberty for the purpose of protecting members of the public from a risk of terrorism. During the three days Clark spent in the house, he made uncomposed images and published them in the book Control Order on leaving the house.

War on Terror is an immersive experience which brings together several sources of material, correspondence from round the world sent to a British detainee at Guantanamo Bay as well as Edmund Clark’s own photography at the facility. In addition you can see photographs from the suburban UK house which was under a Control Order.

The Imperial War Museum is on Lambeth Road, close to Elephant & Castle underground and mainline stations.

Free entry.
Where: Imperial War Museum.
Ends: Monday, 28th August

Swans, Gloves, Roses And Pancakes: Photos By Martin Parr

Closing soon.
Martin Parr had a busy 2016. First of all, Parr, one of the nation’s favourite photographers, he had his own exhibition at the Guildhall Art Gallery. In addition he curated the Barbican London photography exhibition: Strange and Familiar. Beyond those he drove his Real Food van into Somerset House for Photo London 2016. While 2017 is only just getting going, there is already a Martin Parr exhibition on at Tower Bridge.

Parr is probably just famous for his photography within the UK as he is far beyond the gates of the City of London. His touring exhibition Parrworld had calls at Breda Design Museum in the Netherlands, Haus der Kunst in Munich and Galerie Nationale du Jeu de Paume in Paris.

Swans, Gloves, Roses and Pancakes, much as Martin Parr is renowned for, uncovers details in the every day. The moments he captures are familiar yet unseen while laden with his unique outlook and humour. While Parr has been Photographer in Residence for the City of London, he has been taking unguarded shots at banquets and processions, giving us an unique insight into the magic of some of the City’s most important occasions.

Entry

Entry to the exhibition is included in admission to the Tower of London, where you can walk the glass floor high above the River Thames. In addition you can take in the Victorian Engine rooms in the world famous bridge while enjoying Martin Parr fabulous work.

THE RADICAL EYE: MODERNIST PHOTOGRAPHY FROM THE SIR ELTON JOHN COLLECTION

Singer, Sir Elton John and Tate present an exhibition of modernist photography from Elton John’s private collection. Sir Elton owns around eight thousand photographic works some dating back to 1910. He started collecting in 1990 when he successfully completed rehab, substituting his addiction for alcohol for an addiction for photography. Tate Modern presents an astounding collection which features work by Dorothea Lange, Man Ray, Edward Weston in addition to other pioneers and masters in their respective photographic fields.

The focus of this London photography exhibition, is the coming of age of photography. In total, the gallery displays 200 works by 60 most noteworthy artists.

Tate Modern is on the South Bank of the Thames, across the river from St Paul’s Cathedral. While visiting, leave extra time to explore the Switch House extension to the Tate Modern, if you haven’t yet had a chance to see it. If you’re planning an evening visit to the Tate Modern, you might also consider visiting the Oxo Tower Bar for sunset views over the Thames and the City of London.
