London Photography Exhibitions October 2018

There is even more good photography to see in London this autumn.  First we go back around 100 years to the aftermath of the First World War.  Renewal at the Imperial War Museum offers a look in detail at rebuilding cities after the Great War.  Meanwhile in Notting Hill, there is a very different landscape on display.  Hunter Barnes offers a photographic study of Las Vegas, taking the vivid vistas of the buildings as well as the workers of the legendary city.  Finally, the 2018 Taylor Wessing photographic Prize exhibition has just opened.  That is at the National Portrait Gallery, where you can also catch Illuminating Women.

London Nights, featuring over 50 artists continues at the Museum of London.  There is also a group show at Hamiltons.  Modern Masters features work by Helmut Newton and Irving Penn  together with Erwin Olaf and Robert Mapplethorpe.

Some photography exhibitions in London, such as Expectations are ending soon.  That display at the Black Cultural Archives captures the struggles as well as victories of Windrush Britain. Read on for further details on these as well as others. See the regularly updated London Photography Galleries list.

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 illuminating subjects through 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 commemorate the 50th anniversary 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.

Free display

Ends: Sunday, 24th March 2019.

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.

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.
