Jocelyn Lee: The Appearance of Things

The Appearance of Things, in a word, is Jocelyn Lee’s examination of the physical world. Jocelyn Lee is know for her portraiture as well as landscape work. Importantly, in her portraiture, she shows an interest in the psychological dimensions of the character. Her landscape work is equally rich, driven by existential themes, her use of richly descriptive colour emphasises textures in the subjects.

Huxley-Parlour present Lee’s first UK solo exhibition. Notably, the show features portrait and landscape work from the artist as well as work from the latest project. The latest project, The Appearance of Things, is ongoing and started taking shape in 2016. Lee has already exhibited widely in notable United States institutions as well as internationally.

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.

Where: Huxley-Parlour.
Ends: Friday, 11th May.

Martin Parr

Free admission.

This is a permanent display at the Tate Modern, in the Artist rooms. You might remember a recent Daido Moriyama display at Tate Modern. This current Martin Parr display is the same area as that Moriyama one, on the fourth floor of the Boiler House. In addition to prints of famous Matrin Parr images hung on the walls, there is a short video featuring further shots. On the walls you will find work from ‘The Last Resort’ right up to the last decade. The Last Resort, shot in New Brighton, close to Liverpool in 1983 documented British day-trippers enjoying time at the seaside. The resort was a popular working class destination. With north-west England in decline, the work was seen as “an indictment of the market-led economic policies” of the government of the day.

There is another Martin Parr display at Rocket Gallery. ‘Remote Scottish Postboxes’ is the first exhibition of Martin Parr’s medium format series. The series was captured from 2004 up to 2015. Viewing is by appointment until 23rd June.

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. On the same floor at the Tate, you can find an equally interesting display of work by Karl Blossfeldt and Germaine Krull.

Free admission.
Where: Tate Modern: Boiler House Level 4 East.
Ends: Permanent display.

Robert Frank

Free admission.
Robert Frank is a Swiss born photographer. He changed photography when he moved across the Atlantic and produced his book ‘The Americans‘. Even before the book, he garnered support for his unconventional approach, creating a new brand of independently produced street photography. The Americans began a new era in Documentary Photography. Previously the field was about drawing attention to a cause. In contrast, Robert Frank’s photography showed everyday America and ordinary Americans just as they were. At the time it was more common for photographers to publish in magazines rather than books. By persevering with finding a publisher, Robert Frank was able to have more artistic control over his on his work.

Hamiltons present Frank work, not just from America, but also captures made in London and Paris. His seminal trip to a coal-mining village in Wales also makes an appearance. Hamiltons Gallery is in Mayfair, close to Grosvenor Square and a short walk from Green Park tube station. Nobu, on Berkeley street is on the way back to the tube station, if you fancy stopping off for some sushi.

Free admission.
Where: Hamiltons.
Ends: Friday, 11th May.
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.
More information: Hamiltons.

William Klein: Fashion + Light

Free admission.
William Klein is one of the world’s most influential photographers. Along with Robert Frank (whose work is on show at Hamiltons at the moment), Klein is considered a father of street photography. His fashion work for Vogue was famed. The approach was unconventional, using a wide-angle, lens close up, often outside with natural lighting.

Hackelbury show abstract light images as well as William Klein fashion work. The studio light images predate his fashion work and can be seen on the lower level of the gallery. There is also some rare fashion work as well as the more well-known pieces. If you got to see William Klein + Daido Moriyama at The Tate Modern in 2012, you will definitely recognise some of the pieces. The rare fashion work is studio based using light painting, which the gallery only convinced Klein to release in 2015.

Hackelbury is in South Kensington close to both Gloucester Road and High Street Kensington stations. The gallery staff are surely the most welcoming in London. They are also very knowledgable. Be sure to ask to see Klein’s portrait of footballer Eric Cantona in the end room.

Free admission.
Where: Hackelbury.
Ends: Saturday, 2nd June.

Victorian Giants: The Birth of Art Photography

Victorian Giants unites early photographers such as Julia Margaret Cameron and Oscar Rejlander. Also included in the list of giants are Lewis Carroll and Lady Clementina Hawarden. Rejlander was initially a painter – he turned to photographer after moving to England. The pioneer mastered the complicated wet-colloidion process for negatives after a three-and-a-half hour crash course in London. Later, he became a teacher to Cameron, Carroll and Lady Hawarden. In fact the four stayed in touch throughout their careers. In spite of this there was some rivalry; Lewis Carroll wrote that ‘he
did not admire Mrs Cameron’s large heads taken out of focus‘.

The art on show is raw, edgy and experimental. This is a ‘jewel-like show of photographs’ – The Telegraph.

The National Portrait Gallery is on St. Martin’s Place. It is near to Leicester Square tube station. Charing Cross station is also just a short walk.

Adult: £13.85 (including £2 donation and £1.85 online transaction fee).
Where: National Portrait Gallery.
Ends: Sunday, 20th May.

Under Cover: A Secret History of Cross – Dressers

Under Cover is a reflection on gender non-conformity. The Photographers’ Gallery display 200 images from Sébastien Lifshitz’s private collection. Interestingly, the images on display are from as far back as the 1880s. They show people from different classes, genders, professions and nationalities.

Many of these are very ordinary portraits… How unremarkable these pictures are, until we realise how precise they are in their studied ordinariness.The Guardian

Free admission before noon every day.
