The Don McCullin "Shaped by War" show is a must. I saw it at the Imperial War Museum in Salford and it just blew me away.
What struck me the most was that as McCullin’s worked developed, his photographs of war contained less action and soldiers, and more and more of the impact on civilians in these conflict. The major tragedy is that he was not allowed to cover the Falklands conflict. How our view my have differed if this had been the case.
On exiting the exhibition, I paused to ponder this quote of McCullin’s on the wall……”You never stop learning, you never stop…..discovering. The discovery of life itself is a big enough challenge. but for me, I’m constantly looking and finding and being surprised”.

The Sainsbury Centre at the University of East Anglia, Norwich has a show "There is Here", Photographs by Avi Gupta 4th Feb - 1 July

www.scva.ac.uk/exhibitions/current/index.php?exhibition=119

There Is Here is the first UK exhibition by American artist Avi Gupta, specially commissioned for the Sainsbury Centre.

The exhibition presents a series of photographs of domestic interiors taken in private homes in Washington DC and in Kolkata, India. These poetic images are devoid of people yet filled with human presence, leaving the viewer with the sensation that something has just happened or is about to happen. The photographs show found situations, untouched by the artist yet framed by him to highlight subtle details and unexpected juxtapositions.

Avi Gupta’s parents emigrated from India to the United States and his work is influenced by the experience of growing up as part of the Bengali community in the Washington area. His photographs are both personal and linked to universal themes, with explorations of globalisation, value systems and cultural hybridity shown through the detail of domestic life.

Avi Gupta is director of photography, publications at US News & World Report and his photographs have been published in The Washington Post, The New York Times, The Washington Times, and The New Yorker. His work has been displayed in exhibitions around the United States and is held in the permanent collection of the Library of Congress.

Admission is free

Any of you who would like to meet up to see the show, please flickr mail me.

@ Nottingham Contemporary; Thomas Demand - Model Studies
28 Jan 2012 - 15 Apr 2012. Admission: Free

German artist Thomas Demand is best known for his large scale photographs that question the medium as a faithful record of reality. His exhibition at Nottingham Contemporary is a result of a residency at the Getty Research Institute in Los Angeles where he discovered the archive of the celebrated architect John Lautner (1911 – 1994). Lautner’s glamorous and curvaceous homes have featured in many films, including the 1971 Bond film Diamonds Are Forever.

BEN - I've been to see it three times now. Each time I have have got something different from the show. The works are VERY different from his usual work. I would be interested to know what you think if you manage to get along to see the show.
If you want a guide round the city, I would be happy to meet up, if I am available.
That goes for anyone else who gets along to Nottingham.

@ Open Eye Gallery, Liverpool
Launched in 1977, Liverpool’s Open Eye was one of the UK’s first dedicated photography galleries. Excluded from the programmes of art galleries, photographers and others with an interest in the medium established their own network of galleries in the 1970s and ‘80s, drawing on newly-available funds from the Arts Council and a growing sense of photography’s artistic, social and political potential.

Cheers, Mark. I don't know Nottingham at all so might well take you up on that if I can get there.

In other exhibition news it seems apt, given who started this thread, to mention that there's currently a nice little show in Exeter of Julia Margaret Cameron and Roger Fenton's work - rammuseum.org.uk/exhibitions/roger-fenton-julia-margaret-...

Paris:-
Bérénice Abbott
District : Champs-Elysées / Louvre
JEU DE PAUME / SITE CONCORDE
From February 21 2012 to April 29 2012
Description :

This winter, after Lee Miller, Lisette Model, Diane Arbus and before Eva Besnyö, the Jeu de Paume gallery in Paris continues to highlight the work of women photographers of the twentieth century.

With Berenice Abbott, the city is at the heart of the exhibition while the stock market crash shook 1930s America, her images of New York reconfigure an optimistic vision of an urban area as a guarantee of progress. Known for discovering the work of Eugene Atget, Berenice Abbott, who wanted to devote herself to sculpture, turned out to be a great photographer of matter, space and light.

I was in London last weekend and caught Thomas Ruff's quite literally out of this world ma.r.s exhibition at the Gagosian on Britannia St.

www.gagosian.com/artists/thomas-ruff/artist-exhibitions

The 3D images were a little gimmicky but there's some breathtaking work on display and it was great to see a couple of the JPEGS and substrats in a side room. The 4 nudes at the sister gallery on Davies St were also good to see but not if you're running late for a dinner appointment and struggling to find the gallery in the rain because your iphone thinks it's somewhere else...

I also caught the Paolo Roversi exhibition at the Wapping Project Bankside - www.thewappingprojectbankside.com/exhibitions/

As great as it was to see the work of one of my favourite photographers on the wall of the gallery it was a little bit of an anticlimax after the Ruffs though the beautifully printed sequence from 'nudi' was a particularly highlight.

Also a recent trip to London saw me catch a few good shows -

Edgar Martins has been hovering round the edge of my mind for the past few years so it was good to finally catch an exhibition, though it turned out I'd run into a number of pieces before. Very inspiring for this weeks brief (#37) - www.thewappingprojectbankside.com/exhibitions/2012/martin...

Then on to the Hamiltons Gallery for a chance to see some great fashion work for my idols Avedon and Penn (and Newton and Watson) - www.hamiltonsgallery.com/

Then I was trying to find somewhere I could see a Gursky when a twitter tip off sent me to Philips De Pury auction house where they let me in to inspect the lots despite not being quite open yet and I have never seen so many great images in one place. Classics from Walker Evans, Edward Weston, Cartier-Bresson, Sudek, Horst, Arbus, Mapplethorpe etc all the way up to modern masters like Ruff, Hofer, Esser, Avedon, Penn, Bailey, Lux, Olaf etc. Truly mindblowing. I wandered round in the most beautiful daze...

info@manchesterphotographic.com
0161 236 7224

Ian Tilton has captured The Stone Roses in his lens more than any other photographer ~ ranging from the first time in his studio in Chorlton, Manchester in November 1987 right up until their last gig with the original line up in June 1990 at Glasgow Green ~ just a few days after the notorious Spike Island gig. For almost two years, Ian was their exclusive photographer. Ian not only championed the Roses in their early days, he was the first to tour with and photograph many iconic bands on their rise to fame, including Nirvana, Guns N Roses the Happy Mondays, James and the Charlatans.

‘Set In Stone’ will also complement the publication of ‘Set in Stone’ ~ Ian Tilton’s Photographs of the Rise of The Stone Roses. This book, which will be published by Omnibus in the Summer, and will feature well over 400 photographs of the Stone Roses, including many previously unseen rarities. ‘Set in Stone’ will also see Ian reminiscing about his time spent with the band, revealing the stories behind the pictures.

A recent trip to London saw me catch a couple of exhibitions -

First stop was The Word in London (the Park House version) -

thephotographersgallery.org.uk/the-world-in-london-2

Not my favourite way of looking at photographs and some had suffered more than others in the display process but there was some good work by Nadav Kander, Pieter Hugo, Stephen Shore, Alec Soth and a host of others.

Then onto the Atlas Gallery in Baker St to see "do you remember the first time"

www.atlasgallery.com/atlas.php

The website doesn't do justice to the Adam Jeppesen's which were extremely curious in real life. Not on display but visible in the backroom were a couple of gorgeous Irving Penn's and my first real life Bill Brandt.

Then to my usual London haunt the Wapping Project Bankside -

www.thewappingprojectbankside.com/exhibitions/2012/group-...

A group show by various of their photographers but the real treat would have been a sneak preview of two prints from Peter Marlow's new English Cathedral project if it hadn't been topped by being able to flip through a book of all his actual polaroid test shots.

"Another London" currently on at London Tate Britain is an absolute must see. A series of photographs taken of London between 1930 and 1980. All in B&W and taken by people who are not native to Britain. Many excellent works by Carier-Bresson, Dorothy Bohm, Bruce Davidson and Ellen Auerbach to name just a few. Check out the below link:

Everything Was Moving: Photography from the 60s and 70s
13 Sep 2012 - 13 Jan 2013,
Barbican Art Gallery, London


Everything Was Moving: Photography from the 60s and 70s showcases work from two of the most dramatic decades of the 20th century, a time when the modern age as we know it began to take shape and when photography became an important medium of modern art.

This major photography exhibition brings together over 400 works, some rarely seen and many shown in the UK for the first time, from key figures such as David Goldblatt, Graciela Iturbide, Shomei Tomatsu and William Eggleston, as well as important innovators whose lives were cut tragically short such as Ernest Cole, Raghubir Singh and Larry Burrows .

Focal Points: Art and Photography

Thursday 17 May 2012 - Sunday 2 June 2013
Manchester Art Gallery

Admission free

Photography is at the heart of some of the most significant works of art of our times.

This new display of around 30 photographs explores just some of the different ways contemporary artists have used photography in their work. It reveals how they have used the camera to explore traditional artistic themes in new and exciting ways.

Taken from the 1980s onward, the photographs explore the body, reinvent still-life, examine our cultural identities and explore the places where we live, work and spend our leisure time. The artworks often find ways of making the familiar strange and the ugly beautiful.

The display features work by influential photographer Keith Arnatt, famous British artist Helen Chadwick, Turner Prize nominee Catherine Yass and Young British Artists such as Sarah Lucas and Jane and Louise Wilson.

It also includes a number of photographic works collected by the Gallery over the last 10 years, with support from the Contemporary Art Society’s Special Collection scheme. By artists including Craigie Horsfield, Cornelia Parker and Thomas Demand, these works explore the themes of photography and sculpture and the connections between the two. They are the inspiration for this photography display.

The photographs in this display come from the collections of Manchester City Galleries, The Arts Council Collection at The Southbank Centre, London and other lenders.

The 2011 Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition on until 2nd September at Matlock Bath
www.thegrandpavilion.co.uk/exhibition.html

An amazing exhibition in a rather unusual venue in the quirkiest of places. Matlock Bath is a seaside town without the sea - love it or hate it. Chips, icecream, arcades and motorbikes ... and this exhibition. If you go don't miss the offer of free tea or coffee in return for your used ticket with any cake bought at the Fishpond pub opposite. My Victoria sponge slice was the size of a brick and kept me going the whole of the bike ride back home.

Had a very enjoyable visit to Manchester Art Gallery (see Mark's entry above) for the Art & Photography show - excellent exhbition and venue. Also showing at the same Gallery

We Face Forward (until 16 September) an exhibition of "Art from West Africa Today",

which includes works from several WA photographers including Nyani Quarmyne and George Osodi. Well worth seeing and the two shows together need much longer than the couple of hours we afforded..


Thanks Mark for the tipoff and thank you Palofperu for a great afternoon in the rainy city:)

"Burn My Eye"

15 September 2012 - 28 October 2012

Opening night preview: Friday, 14 September, 7pm

Street photography aims at capturing the extraordinary within every day life through candid snaps. By focusing beyond the mundane, the members of the "Burn My Eye" collective reveal their personal visions of the world and explore humanity's very soul.

The eleven photographers from "Burn My Eye" present prints that range from surreal Asian captures to light leaked images taken on the rough pavements of New York. Streetwise, humorous, cinematic, insightful, the imagery takes the spirit of the street to both public spaces and the more intimate surrounds of the family home.

"Burn My Eye" is Zisis Kardianos, Charlie Kirk, Andrew Kochanowski, Alexandros Konstantinakis Karmis, Frédéric Le Mauff, TC Lin, JB Maher, Jason Penner, Justin Sainsbury, Jack Simon and Justin Vogel.

@ Imperial War Museum, London

Cecil Beaton: Theatre of War

6 September 2012 – 1 January 2013

Open daily 10am - 6pm
Last admission 5.45pm
Closed 24, 25 and 26 December and from 2 January – July 2013

Cecil Beaton is one of Britain’s most celebrated photographers and designers. His glamorous photographs of royalty and celebrities projected him to fame but his extraordinary work as a wartime photographer is less well-known.

Commissioned by the Ministry of Information in July 1940, Beaton was the longest serving high-profile photographer to cover the Second World War. He travelled throughout Britain, the Middle East, India, China and Burma and captured a world on the brink of lasting change.

In later years, Beaton attributed his war photographs as his single most important body of photographic work. Through his photographs, drawings and books as well as his work in theatre and film, this exhibition tells the story of how the war became a personal turning point in Beaton’s career.
