Maisie Cousins: Dipping Sauce

Food porn gets everyone’s engines revving: images of pristine plates of immaculate profiteroles, steaming piles of mash and unctuous bowls of caviar, that throaty M&S voice uttering sweet nothings into your ear, etc. Well, young British artist Maisie Cousins is sort of the opposite.

Edward Burtynsky’s new show is dominated by a six-metre-long photograph of a quarry. A massive orange digger sits in the middle, but it looks like a toy in its surroundings. Burtynsky fans’ spidey senses go on high alert: EB is showing us the rape of the earth by man.

Roman Vishniac: Rediscovered

Many visitors to ‘Roman Vishniac: Rediscovered’ will likely be discovering him full stop, nevermind the ‘re-’ part. But if they are familiar with the Russian-born photographer, it will be for his series of images capturing the plight of impoverished Jews living in Eastern Europe pre-WWII.
