Tate Modern, London Photography Exhibitions May 2018

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)

William Klein: Fashion + Light

Closing soon.
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.

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