Joel Sternfeld: Colour Photographs: 1977-1988

Free admission.
72 year-old Joel Sternfeld is a US fine art photography pioneer, who like William Eggleston, is responsible for getting colour photography recognised as an art form. He is known for his use of large format processes and influenced a generation of photographers. Andreas Gursky is thought to borrowed many of Joel Sternfeld’s techniques and approaches. In turn, Sternfeld’s own style has been thought to resemble that of Walker Evans, which consistently explored the possibility of a collective American identity. Because no photograph explains anything, according to Joel Sternfeld, “photographs are wonderful yet problematic”.

Beetles + Huxley present Colour Photographs: 1977-1988 which is the first UK Joel Sternfeld exhibition in fifteen years. 30 vintage dye transfer and chromogenic prints show well recognised as well as never seen before Joel Sternfeld work. Beetles+Huxley is just off Piccadilly, not far from Fortnum & Masons or the Royal Academy of Arts and a short walk from Regent’s Street.

Free admission.
Where: Beetles + Huxley.
Ends: Saturday, 18th February.

‘Super’ is a major London photography exhibition which focuses on the work of Herb Ritts the U.S. fashion photographer.

Edmund Clark: War of Terror

Free entry.
British photographer Edmund Clark gained access to Guantanamo Bay detention facility in Cuba where the U.S. government held enemy combatants during the War on Terror. Clark also photographed a house which was subject to a Control Order. Control Orders were introduced by the British government as a counter-terrorism measure. The idea was to restrict an individual’s liberty for the purpose of protecting members of the public from a risk of terrorism. During the three days Clark spent in the house, he made uncomposed images and published them in the book Control Order on leaving the house.

War on Terror is an immersive experience which brings together several sources of material, correspondence from round the world sent to a British detainee at Guantanamo Bay as well as Edmund Clark’s own photography at the facility. In addition you can see photographs from the suburban UK house which was under a Control Order.

Swans, Gloves, Roses And Pancakes: Photos By Martin Parr

Martin Parr had a busy 2016. First of all, Parr, one of the nation’s favourite photographers, he had his own exhibition at the Guildhall Art Gallery. In addition he curated the Barbican London photography exhibition: Strange and Familiar. Beyond those he drove his Real Food van into Somerset House for Photo London 2016. While 2017 is only just getting going, there is already a Martin Parr exhibition on at Tower Bridge.

Parr is probably just famous for his photography within the UK as he is far beyond the gates of the City of London. His touring exhibition Parrworld had calls at Breda Design Museum in the Netherlands, Haus der Kunst in Munich and Galerie Nationale du Jeu de Paume in Paris.

Swans, Gloves, Roses and Pancakes, much as Martin Parr is renowned for, uncovers details in the every day. The moments he captures are familiar yet unseen while laden with his unique outlook and humour. While Parr has been Photographer in Residence for the City of London, he has been taking unguarded shots at banquets and processions, giving us an unique insight into the magic of some of the City’s most important occasions.

David Bailey: NW1

Closing soon.

The work was later shown on platforms at Regents’ Park underground station as part of the Art Below project.

NW1, the exhibition coincides with the publication of a re-release of the 1982 eponymous book. The publisher has only printed one thousand copies of the newly designed edition. The photographs feature shuttered cinemas, boarded railway arches and Victorian facades from NOrth London. Bailey had already lived there for thirty years before he put finger to shutter on this project. The collection of photographs is ever more pertinent today as the independent shops captured have given way to branches of national chains.
