Past Events and Exhibitions
This is the first major retrospective of Terence Donovan (1936 - 1996) one of the foremost photographers of his generation.
Autograph APB presents the first major solo exhibition of photographs by the late Raphael Albert – cultural promoter, entrepreneur and photographer.
The British Antarctic Expedition, better known by the name of its ship the Terra Nova, took place from 1910-1913. Captain Robert Falcon Scott appointed Dr Edward Wilson, a close friend and a fine watercolourist, as his chief scientist. He also invited camera artist Herbert Ponting to join the expedition as official photographer, in a bold move in an era when high quality photography required great skill and careful attention in ordinary circumstances, let alone in the extreme environment of the Antarctic.
This exhibition presents the artist’s first major solo show in London, and consists of entirely new and previously unseen works.
It continues Noémie Goudal’s interest in manmade interventions into the natural world, through photographs which portray complex and ambiguous constructions created by the artist within the landscape.
Seamless Transitions is a new commission by London based artist, writer and technologist James Bridle. His work engages with the invisible yet pervasive technologies that we encounter every day. Utilising a variety of platforms from software to social media, photography and installations, Bridle explores how technology both affects culture and reproduces and shapes political power.
Human Rights Human Wrongs features more than 200 original press prints, drawn from the Black Star collection of twentieth century photoreportage.
The exhibition explores what role such images play in helping us understand the case for human rights, and further addresses the legacy of how photographs have historically functioned in raising awareness of international conflict.
Primrose showcases the appearance and development of colour in Russian photography from the 1860s to the 1970s. It presents both the history of Russian photography and the history of Russia in photography, depicting life over the course of a century, as the country endured unprecedented upheaval.
The exhibition is arranged in chronological order and shows the development of photographic colour technology and the social transformations which altered the role of photography in Russian society.
Celebrating the landscape, traditions and rituals of the British seaside holiday, Didn't We Have a Lovely Time... presents the work of five leading British photographers - John Hinde, Nicholas Hughes, Mike Perry, Simon Roberts and Luke Stephenson
William S. Burroughs (1914-1997) was one of the most influential American writers of the 20th century. Despite his prolific achievements as a novelist, essayist, spoken word performer and painter, Burroughs’ work as a photographer is rarely acknowledged.
Coinciding with the centenary of Burroughs’ birth, Taking Shots will be the first exhibition worldwide to focus on Burroughs’ vast photographic oeuvre and offers new and important insights into his artistic and creative processes.
