London Photography Exhibitions June 2018


Updated London photography Exhibitions list for June 2018. We have added four shows featuring fantastic photography. Cindy Sherman is one of the most influential artists of the twentieth century. A new exhibition has just opened at Sprüth Magers, featuring new work. Meanwhile, also in Mayfair, prolific Japanese photographer Daido Mariyama is back at Hamiltons. On top there are some great social documentary photography shows open now. August Sander is at Hauser & Wirth on Saville Row. Just a little further east in Shoreditch, Polish photographer Zofia Rydet continues to gather international support.

Unfortunately, there are a few exhibitions about to end. Don’t miss social documentary photography in the Windrush exhibition on the South Bank. As well as that fantastic show, Martin Parr at Huxley-Parlour and Foam Talent, in Vauxhall are ending soon. Read on for further details on both of these and others, lower down.

See the regularly updated London Photography Galleries list. The London Photography Galleries list compliments this post on London Photography Exhibitions. It contains information such as opening times and maps for the London photography exhibitions.


Cindy Sherman

Sprüth Magers London, London photography exhibitions june 2018

Sprüth Magers London


Just opened.
Cindy Sherman is one of the most influential figures in contemporary art. In particular, the American photographer is known for her conceptual portraits. She was making ‘selfies’ long before the term existed. Probably her most famous series is ‘Untitled Film Stills‘. Cindy Sherman challenges social stereotypes, dressing up in wigs and vintage clothing, and putting herself in front of the camera. The series comprises 69 black and white images made between 1977 and 1980. Photograph Number 48 from the series features in the list of 20 Most Expensive Photos Sold at Auction. In total Cindy Sherman work appears six times in that list. The most expensive being ‘Untitled 96 1981’, in third place. The chromogenic colour print was sold for $3.9 million by Christie’s in 2011.

This exciting display at Sprüth Magers features new work from Cindy Sherman’s latest series. The 2016 series stars Sherman as the ‘grandes dames’ of 1920s Hollywood cinema. The photographs on show are created using dye sublimation: heat is used to transfer the dye directly onto metal. Notably, no glass protection is needed. Consequently, the images appear more immediate and vital.

Sprüth Magers is in Mayfair, and just a short walk from Green Park tube station and also Bond Street. If the weather’s good it might be worth getting a sandwich to eat on a bench in Berkeley Square.

Just opened.
Where: Sprüth Magers.
Ends: Saturday, 1st September.

Family Values: Polish Photography Now

Free admission.
Family Values is an exhibition featuring the work of Polish photographers, principally Zofia Rydet. Rydet’s series ‘Sociological Record’ is probably one of the most important achievements in 20th Polish photography. Something of a Polish August Sander, she set out to provide a comprehensive documentary portrait of Polish domestic life. 20,000 Polish families welcomed Zofia Rydet into their homes on her 20-year mission. Long admired in Poland, Rydet is now gaining prominence from a wider, international audience.

The show is curated by Kate Bush and also features work from contemporary Polish photographers. Józef Robakowski and Aneta Grzeszykowska as well as Weronika Gęsicka, Aneta Bartos and Adam Palenta feature.

Calvert 22 Foundation is in Shoreditch and only a short walk from Shoreditch High Street London Overground Station. Old Street as well as Liverpool Street Underground stations are also both walkable.

Free admission.
Where: Calvert 22 Foundation.
Ends: Sunday, 22nd July.

August Sander: Men without Masks

August Sander is a pioneer in documenting human diversity. Armed with just a large format camera with glass plate negatives his ‘People of the 20th Century‘ project documented mid-1920’s Germany. Although he didn’t come from an artist background, Sander’s work influenced important photographers of the twentieth century. Both Walker Evans and Diane Arbus were thought to be influenced by Sander.

The rare, large scale photographs on show at Hauser & Wirth in ‘Men without Masks’ are impressive. Sander chose to stick with older large format technology rather than the then, new, Leica camera in order to capture more detail. The oversize printing in the exhibition showcases this fine detail on the faces of the sitters. Not only the quality of the printing but also the number of portraits on show make the show outstanding.

Hauser & Wirth are on Saville Row with Oxford Circus and Piccadilly London Underground stations only a short walk. There are almost as many photography galleries as tailors in the area, with Huxley-Parlour as well as The Photographers’ Gallery a few minutes’ walk away.

Where: Hauser & Wirth.
Ends: Saturday, 28th July.

Daido Moriyama: Scene

Daido Moriyama is one of the most influential Japanese photographers of his generation. He is probably best known for his style of black and white street photography. You only need to look at he number of photography exhibitions in London in 2018 alone to appreciate his importance. He was featured as one of only 20 photographers at the acclaimed Barbican show ‘Another Kind of Life’, a solo exhibition at Michael Hoppen Gallery as well the Pavilion Commission at Photo London 2018.

Moriyama’s shots can look like unintentional snapshots at first. However, a closer look reveals his social commentary. His work highlights 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.

‘Scene’ is curated by Tim Jefferies and exclusively features silkscreens on canvas. Hamiltons Gallery is in Mayfair, close to Grosvenor Square and a short walk from Green Park tube station. Sprüth Magers Gallery is also just a short walk: see above for details of the Cindy Sherman show on there right now.

Where: Hamiltons.
Ends: Friday, 17th August.
See the London Photography Galleries. That list compliments this London Photography Exhibitions post. We regularly update the list with information on opening times and maps as well as other useful details.

Windrush: Portrait of a Generation

Closing soon.
Free admission.
Certainly, one of the top news stories in recent weeks has been the Windrush Scandal. The insensitivity with which some of the so-called ‘Windrush Generation’ were treated is scandalous. However the attention generated by the scandal has sought to remind us all of the important role played by the Windrush Generation in building modern Britain.

Significantly, this exhibition at the Oxo Tower Gallery is timed to coincide with the seventieth anniversary of HMT Empire Windrush setting sail. The ship set sail from Jamaica in 1948 bringing citizens of the, then, British Empire to the ‘motherland‘. It is important to realise Britain had called on them to come to and help in efforts to rebuild the country in the wake of the Second World War.

Photographer Jim Grover captures the lives of the first generation of Caribbean migrants living in South London. This touching exhibition shows how the workers adapted to British life and includes colourful insights into the new culture created.

The Oxo Tower Gallery is on the South Bank of the Thames and only a couple of minutes’ walk from Tate Modern. There is also an interesting photography exhibition on at the Tate Modern currently. Read on below for further details.

Closing soon.
Free admission.
Where: Oxo Tower Gallery.
Ends: Sunday, 10th June.
See the London Photography Galleries. That list compliments this London Photography Exhibitions post. We regularly update the list with information on opening times and maps as well as other useful details.

Martin Parr: Early Work 1971-1986

Closing soon.
Martin Parr, chronicler of our age is probably one of he nation’s best-loved and most important photographers. You only have to look at how much of his work is currently on show in London right now to appreciate that. There is a permanent display at the Tate Modern, a medium-format series at Rocket Gallery and a show featuring new work at the National Maritime Museum as well as this exhibition. This exhibition of some of his earlier work features many black and white images. That alone probably makes it stand out from the Martin Parr work you might be used to as well as the other exhibitions.

Early Work 1971-1986 includes work from the colour ‘Last Resort’ series shot in New Brighton. Importantly however, even earlier work like the ‘Non-Conformists‘ is featured. That series set in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, was his first body of work after graduating from Manchester Polytechnic. Capturing a community in decline here, Parr returns to backdrops of decline and decay in later work.

Huxley-Parlour is just off Piccadilly. With Fortnum & Mason and the Royal Academy of Arts nearby, it is a short walk from Regent’s Street.

Closing soon.
Where: Huxley-Parlour.
Ends: Friday, 8th June.
See the London Photography Galleries. That list compliments this London Photography Exhibitions post. We regularly update the list with information on opening times and maps as well as other useful details.

Jacques Henri Lartigue: C’est Chic

Michael Hoppen Gallery, Chelsea, London photography exhibitions June 2018

Michael Hoppen Gallery in Chelsea


French photographer Jacques Henri Lartigue is known for his shots of Parisian fashion models as well as his friends and family. He is such a giant of photography, that it is impossible to imagine the 20th century photographic landscape without him. Lartigue pursued photography for his love of the art and also to document what he held precious. He was hailed as a founder of modern photography yet his work had limited influence on the development of photography during the twentieth century. This is because much of his work virtually unknown until half a century after he reach his artistic peak.

Paul Smith has curated two concurrent London exhibitions to celebrate Lartigue. This one at Michael Hoppen Gallery in Chelsea like teh other at Paul Smith, Covent Garden bring to light some rare treats. The focus is Lartigue’s magical eye. ‘Effortlessly chic‘ work from three decades 1950s, 60s and 70s, is featured.

The Michael Hoppen Gallery is in Chelsea, . They are based just off the King’s Road. The gallery is close to South Kensington tube station or a slightly further walk from Sloane Square. Michael Hoppen opening hours change in the summer. Notably it is closed on Saturdays during July and August.

Where: Michael Hoppen.
Ends: Saturday, 28th July.

The Great British Seaside

Martin Parr is surely one of the nation’s most celebrated photographers. He is one of Britain’s best-loved and most important photographers. Parr critically examines elements of modern life in his intimate, satirical and anthropological photography. He captures the British in quiet villages, at fairs and churches, in supermarkets, in their homes and holiday at the Great British seaside and abroad. A nuanced commentator on the British class system, Martin Parr is best known for his sharp eye and cheeky sense of humour. For this exhibition featuring new work, Martin Parr is once again at the seaside.

The National Maritime Museum present the work of four feted British photographers. Martin Parr as well as Tony Ray-Jones, David Hurn and Simon Roberts feature. The exhibition celebrates the Great British Seaside.

The National Maritime Museum is in Greenwich a few minutes walk from the Cutty Sark. Greenwich is just several minutes’ train ride from central London though, arguably, a more enjoyable way to get there is on a Thames Clipper!

Adult: £10.35 (with 10% discount vs. ‘show up’ price for booking online, no booking fee charged)
Where: National Maritime Museum.
Ends: Sunday, 30th September.

Shape of Light: 100 Years of Photography and Abstract Art

Tate Modern, London Photography Exhibitions June 2018

Tate Modern Boiler House, South Bank.


The Shape of Lights is a stunning celebration of 100 years of photography and abstract art. This is the first major exhibition to explore that relationship between photography and abstract art. The show features not only the fathers of art photography like Alfred Stieglitz and László Moholy-Nagy; modern masters such as Thomas Ruff are also included.

Tate Modern is on the South Bank of the Thames, and just a few minutes’ walk from St. Paul’s tube station. The show seems like a perfect drop-in on a walk along the South Bank on a sunny spring day. There is also some fantastic photography on show on permanent display. That work is on the fourth floor, east side of the Boiler House. You will find work from Martin Parr’s ‘Last Resort’ and an equally interesting display of work by Karl Blossfeldt and Germaine Krull. There is no admission fee to see this work in the permanent collection. There is an optional donation though.

Adult: £16.00 (booked online at least 24 hours in advance, no booking fee charged)
Where: Tate Modern.
Ends: Sunday, 14th October.
