This first ever major museum retrospective of Man Ray's photographic portraits highlights both his pioneering experimental photographic techniques and his choice of powerful and beautiful subjects.
This annual award exhibition presents a considerable body of work by four living photographer’s who are worthy of the £30,000 prize money.
Salgado has boldly gone where not many have before for this eight-year long project: indeed he’d be a real dinner-party bore with his tales of Patagonian ice fields, Madagascan islands and Congolese volcanoes.
You can certainly expect a variety of provocative images from this often-controversial Japanese photographer. His Kinbaku series that capture the art of Japanese bondage will be presented alongside Shunga prints, the original form of Japanese erotica in the eighteenth and nineteenth century.
In this show of two halves, the upstairs gallery contains nostalgic visions of the French city as Kertész captured everyday life as delicate and romanticised ‘truths’. Downstairs is his ‘Distortion’ series, in which he used a combination of contorting mirrors to warp the nude figure as he began tinkering with reality.
This photography exhibition marks the 60th anniversary of the 1953 Coronation with some behind-the-scenes images shot by the likes of photojournalists such as Bert Hardy and John Chillingworth for the Picture Post and other publications.
