jfFrank online » Home » Latest » London Photography Exhibitions


London photography exhibitions in June 2017 include an exhibition from one of our favourite photographers: Marin Parr. Also this week, in a new exhibition, for the first time ever, three gallery spaces in the Photographers’ Gallery are dedicated to a single exhibition. This is the first UK solo exhibition of acclaimed U.S. photographer Gregory Crewdson. While that exhibition is just started, the extended Murray Fredericks exhibition continues in Mayfair.

Some exhibitions will be closing soon, including Harry Gruyaert: Western and Eastern Light at Michael Hoppen Gallery in Chelsea. Read on for more details of all of the exhibitions.

See the regularly updated London Photography Galleries list. The London Photography Galleries list compliments this post on London Photography Exhibitions, in addition to information on opening times and maps for the London photography exhibitions.



The Photographers' Gallery, London, London Photography Exhibitions





Martin Parr: Beach Therapy

Free admission.
Closing soon.
Martin Parr, is probably best known as the Magnum photographer who captures the uniqueness of the British public using a camera equipped with a wide angle lens and flash, revealing vibrant colour. Earlier this year we saw some less know early black and white work in Martin Parr: the Ceremony of Life at the Photographers’ Gallery in London. In contrast, this new exhibition features recent work and it’s back to colour and most importantly, he shoots on a beach (a setting familiar to Martin Parr enthusiasts). However, the something different this time is that he has used a telephoto lens. Shooting with a telephoto lens he was able to capture shots at a distance from the subjects, this consequently opened up exciting new possibilities in perspective. It was maybe a highlight of Parr’s year.

Rocket Gallery present their tenth Martin Parr solo exhibition in 20 years of collaboration with the world-renowned, British Magnum photographer. The Rocket Gallery is in Hackney and is almost a stone’s throw from London Fields London Overground station or Bethany Green underground.

Free admission.
Closing soon.
Where: Rocket Gallery.

Murray Fredericks: Salt: Vanity

Extended.
Free admission.
Murray Fredericks is self-taught as a photographer, though he did later study Fine Arts. Initially, he read politics in his native Australia and later travelled to the Middle East. While in the region he found inspiration which influenced his approach to photography. Fredericks style is probably best described as atmospheric: his work evokes a sense of ‘awe of nature’. In this series, minimalistic, balanced landscapes are complemented with a mirror which manages to establish absence of harmony with the landscape despite disturbing it.

Murray describes ‘Salt’ in this rather more insight than my written description:

Extended.
Free admission.
Where: Hamiltons Gallery.

Harry Gruyaert: Western and Eastern Light

Closing soon.
Free admission.
Harry Gruyaert is a Belgian Magnum photographer and probably one the first European pioneers of colour photography. It was the Pop Art of Andy Warhol that initially alerted Gruyaert to the drama of colour. Since his first trip to Morocco in 1969, he has travelled extensively, capturing a colour filled frames from North America to Russia.

Western and Eastern Light is Michael Hoppen Gallery’s first Harry Gruyaert exhibition and comprises a rather full overview of the last 30 years’ of his work. The display ranges from landscapes of Moscow to Morocco, each combining the photographic grammar of Gruyaert taking in texture, light, colour and architecture to produce a rich visual poetry.

The Michael Hoppen Gallery is in Chelsea, just off the King’s Road, a short walk from South Kensington tube station or almost as close to Sloane Square.

Closing soon.
Free admission.

Joel Meyerowitz: Towards Colour 1962-1978

Free admission.
Joel Meyerowitz taught himself photography after becoming inspired while collaborating on a project with Swiss-born documentary photographer Robert Frank. Later he taught the very first Colour Photography class at Cooper Union in New York. Joel Meyerowitz himself is known most of all for his street photography. Meyerowitz embraced colour photography early. Initially, he worked with both colour and black and white photography but decided to focus on colour film photography work in 1972. This was at a time when colour photography was still probably not given the same attention as black and white work by collectors and galleries. In addition this is even before colour photography pioneer William Eggleston became well known.

Towards Colour 1962-1978 at London’s Beetles and Huxley gallery includes black and white work from Meyerowitz’ early career and gives an insight into his transition to colour. Beetles+Huxley is just off Piccadilly, not far from Fortnum & Masons or the Royal Academy of Arts and maybe a few minutes’ walk from Regent’s Street.

Free admission.
Where: Beetles+Huxley.
Ends: Saturday, 24th June.

Daido Moriyama

Daido Moriyama is a Japanese photographer probably best known for his style of black and white street photography cataloguing the breakdown of traditional values in modern Japan. He counts William Klein and Eikoh Hosoe as his principal influences: he worked as an assistant to Eikoh Hosoe.

This is a permanent display in the Tate Modern in the Artist rooms. In addition to prints of famous Moriyama images hung on the walls, there is a looping projection of dozens of other images – all inspiring.

Tate Modern is on the South Bank of the Thames, and just a few minutes’ walk from St. Paul’s tube station. The shows seems like a perfect drop-in on a walk along the South Bank on a a sunny day.

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.

The Imperial War Museum is on Lambeth Road, close to Elephant & Castle underground and mainline stations.

Free entry.
Where: Imperial War Museum.
Ends: Monday, 28th August
