London Photography Exhibitions November 2018

London photography exhibitions for November 2018 importantly include two exhibitions looking back 100 years.  This seems so relevant as we mark 100 years since the signing of the Armistice this Sunday.  First there is Renewal.  That show at the Imperial War Museum looks at rebuilding cities after the Great War.  Secondly there is Another England at Now Gallery.  That show takes photographs from an Historic England study.  The study surveys 100 years of Black and Asian English heritage.

Meanwhile, modern work is the focus at Calvert 22 Foundation in Shoreditch.  The gallery hosts the biennial New East Photo Prize.  The Masters have the run of central London.  At Huxley-Parlour is Masters of Photography while at Hamiltons you can see Modern Masters.  Both of those exhibitions are closing soon.  Also closing soon is Shashin: are-bure-boke at Michael Hoppen.  London Nights is another show coming to an end.  It is running further east at the Museum of London in the City.  Finally, you can see the latest Edward Burtynsky exhibition at Flowers, Cork Street.

Read on for further details on these as well as others. 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.

Edward Burtynsky: the Human Signature

Favourite Canadian photographer Edward  Burtynsky returns to Flowers Gallery.  Burtynsky is well known for large format works. His work is typically based on industrial landscapes. The main theme of his work is nature transformed through industry.  Ansel Adams, Edward Weston and  Eadweard Muybridge influenced Burtynsky. He saw their work on a visit to the MoMA in the 1980s.

The Human Signature show draws on various disciplines. The work looks at the human impact on the planet. With single-use being named word of the year the exhibition is especially relevant.  The phrase was made popular by the Blue Planet II BBC TV series.  That series highlighted the impact single-use plastics are having.

The Human Signature focuses on terraforming, extraction and urbanisation as well as deforestation.  The show includes both aerial and subterranean photographs presented at large scale.  There is also an augmented reality  installation.

Flowers Central is on Cork Street in Soho.  The gallery is almost a stone’s throw from the Royal Academy of Arts.  Huxley-Parlour gallery is also a short walk.

Illuminating Women: Photographs by Mayotte Magnus

Free display
Significantly, in 1977, the National Portrait Gallery hosted their first ever photographic exhibition to focus on female achievement. Nearly ninety portraits by Mayotte Magnus of eminent British women were featured in the landmark exhibition. Her photography is known for placing subjects in the spotlight by employing her instinct for composition as well as harmony.  Magnus was allowed free reign to choose the subjects of the 100 commissioned portraits. By and large, the exhibition was a success, with as many as 30,000 visitors. In fact the works were shown in public again the following year and in the presence of the Prime Minister. Equally as important as the National Gallery exhibition, this show was to mark the 50 years of the Women’s vote.

The National Portrait Gallery is on St. Martin’s Place. Located between Leicester Square and Trafalgar Square, there are several transport options.  Leicester Square, as well as Charing Cross, station is just a short walk.  The Photographers’ Gallery is not too long a walk either – try to arrive there before midday for free entry.
