Postcards from Babylon

Christian de Sousa

"Postcards from Babylon" is a book of photography and writing about cities, subcultures and the state of the world. It is a portrait of the way we are living, and it is a journey in search of freedom, transformation and the remembrance of who we are.

Emerging from leftfield traditions of reportage photography and writing, it weaves together influences from film, graphic novels, poetry, meditation, electronic music and the dancefloor, to create an entirely new kind of photobook.

To officially launch the book, the gallery will be filled by a light installation inviting visitors to 'step inside the book'.

Can Ts Pelle

C.A. Halpin

A journey celebrating the overlooked, the left behind and the lonely. Using a camera as a sketchbook the artist takes images of her surroundings, events and objects, made memorable by being noted and seen. It is the idea of drawing and the wry wit on the spur of the moment that is found in these images.

Radical London in Focus

David Hoffman, Ed Thompson, Jenny Matthews

London has a proud history of radicalism, of protesting against injustice, inequality and racism, of rising up in favour of a fairer society and seeking to improve the lives of ordinary people. The East End of London has also undergone radical changes within its landscape from the redevelopment following the Blitz of WW2 to the current regeneration created by the 2012 Olympics. Photographers David Hoffman, Ed Thompson and Jenny Matthews have documented different aspects of ‘Radical London’ from the Poll Tax riots, to ‘Reclaim the Night’ and the Occupy movement. They will give talks about their practice and show images of their work during October and November 2012 at the Bishopsgate Institute and author David Rosenberg will give a guided tour exploring the radical history of the streets of East London.

Radical London in Focus - Jenny Matthews: From 'Reclaim the Night' to 'Slutwalk' - 30 years of Feminist Activism in London

Jenny Matthews became a photographer in the early 80s seeing this as a means of being an activist, of documenting social issues and becoming part of campaigns to change society for the better. She was part of Camerawork, a photographic collective based in the East End of London, which promoted documentary photography. Her own practice was propelled by becoming part of a women’s photo agency Format. As feminists they felt it important to document women’s lives and their struggles. In recent years this has led Jenny to photograph the effects of war on women in other parts of the globe. Tickets £6/£4 concs

LUCE - The Moonlight Paintings

Antonella Fabiani

LUCE is a series of 12 images created by harnessing the light of the moon and the lights of the city - creating an ethereal and unique glimpse of London at night.
Equipped with only a tripod and using a long exposure setting, the photographer framed the reflections of the moon and city through a tilted attic window in her North London studio. With a series of fluid movements, she captured this series of soft "light paintings" with the night sky serving as the perfect backdrop.

Paulina Otylie Surys

Sumptuous and often melancholic imagery, and a unique take on fashion photography has truly established Surys as one-to-watch. Artworks from her collection, plus brand new pieces will be on display at her first solo London show, 'In absentia lucis - in Absence of light'.

Sury approaches each shot as an auteur, using analogue camera equipment to capture the shots and then painstakingly developing the photographs before printing them and adding her own creative flair with paint, oil, gelatine and other materials. Her photographs are otherworldly, existing somewhere between fairy-tale and nightmare, referencing religious iconography and ritual.

Chagossians is a portrait study of the Chagos Islanders and their Mauritian-born descendants.

In the late 1960s and early 1970s, an entire population of 2,000 people were forcibly removed from Diego Garcia and the surrounding islands by the British government to make way for the US to build one of the largest and most secretive air and naval bases in the world.

The base, built on the island of Diego Garcia, was the launch pad for the B52s and Stealth bombers to attack Afghanistan in 2001 and Iraq in 2003.

The Fall

Melanie Stidolph

Solo show of photographs and projections by Melanie Stidolph, which extend her recent explorations using motion, light and sound detectors. Naturally occurring and constructed events replace the decisive role of the photographer in triggering images of subjects and objects in tension and suspension.

Stidolph's interest in the idea of 'The Fall' is located in popular photography and art works that engage with the moment before a destructive or fatalistic event, showing the subject on a trajectory that will lead to permanent change, the images are held in the mind's eye as a futile hope in contradiction to the resulting event.

Hugo Elsewhere: The Jersey Studio and the photography of exile online

Victor Hugo and the Jersey Studio

Dr Jann Matlock, Senior Lecturer, UCL French and School of European Languages, Culture and Society

What is it about exile that inspires photography? This talk explores the earliest known exile photography, created in the studio formed by Victor Hugo’s family and friends in their exile on the Channel Island of Jersey between 1852 and 1855. In these years, the Hugo group turned exile into a photographic project, and in doing so, they transformed the history of photography.

Deja Vu

Mitch Karunaratne, Laurie Griffiths, Paul Walsh, Heather Shuker, Chloe Lelliot, Kerry Grainger, Kat Williams, David Sterry, Alina Linnas, Kristin Hoell , Vanessa Roy, Holly Oliver.


The photograph is an uncanny object, fascinating because of the way it doubles the world, stops time and folds one moment of history into another. In this sense it shares the structure of our experience of ‘déjà-vu’.

But it also promises the special quality of recognition and revelation that is associated with ‘déjà-vu’ – a feeling that, in the suspension of time, something that we desire might be revealed, something that links us to our origin in the world, something that we might recognize as being fundamentally true.

Art of Imperfection

Pascal Ancel Bartholdi, Ryuji Araki and Bernhard Deckert

This show includes three artists who each make use of this medium with a conscious disregard for flatness, reproducibility and static design entering the quantum realm by unifying the instant and the eternal the distant and the local. Photography moving with a body, transmuted into a personal understanding of the Mandala or fathomed as receptacle of visceral and psychic phenomena, with an accolade to the Dada artists, the anonymous visionaries of medieval times and the creative shamans who painted on rocks and bodies more than 15 thousand years ago.

Four Londoners

Barry Sutton, Clare Bowen, Jessica Davies, Sarah Groves.

From the constantly changing skies and skylines to the life that moves through its streets; from its buildings grand and shabby to the detritus that drifts and accumulates in its gutters London provides many opportunities for those with a searching eye to make images both arresting and unsettling. This is an exhibition of the work of four contemporary Londoners who use their cameras to take fresh and vibrant glimpses of the city in which they live, work, play: the city that they love.

Photography and video are used to highlight moral lining of our society that is reaffirmed by this blind reading of life's surface, and all forms of imposed morality are encoded in the flux of static information advertised through a multitude of ideal imagery.

With short fast optics and a vintage analogue style, Mark came away trembling with one great picture.

Penny Dampier, Sophie Barr ,Naa teki lebar, Talitha robert

This exhibition of new work by four London artists explores the contradictions of the suburban landscape: light and dark; interior and exterior. These images collectively evoke a yearning for a simpler past but they often hint at something darker. This is a child’s world seen through adult eyes. Works include both prints and projections innovatively installed

I'm A Real Doll

Jenny Bush

I was inspired by the use of dolls by artists such as Hans Bellmer, finding his photographs of dolls unsettling but also fascinating. These feelings were subsequently invoked by images of Real Dolls.
My 'Doll' series started as a venture into combing re-photographed appropriated film images of Real Dolls with text to create my own photographic artworks.

Public/Private. Public brings to mind notions of the open, outside and the urban (shared space and ideas, community etc.), while Private typically implies, perhaps, more notions linked to home, of the inside, the personal, the intimate, unshared or undisclosed, the solitary and the domestic. We have considered how the use of photography may help apprehend both the notions of public and private as separate entities as well as entities that only exist because of each other.

‘Brush it in’ is an expression for a wide variety of alterations made to digital photographs after their creation. The transition from analogue to digital post-production yielded an incredible expansion of existing techniques. Adobe Photoshop was originally developed to emulate the physical
techniques of the darkroom. It quickly developed its own
specific vocabulary and it is precisely this language that
Brush it in engages with. Curated by Lorenzo Durantini

London: a landscape in transition


Recent work by Mike Seaborne concerned with the evolving urban landscape of London and the Thames Estuary. For over 30 years Mike was Curator of Photographs at the Museum of London and throughout that time contributed both to the ongoing photographic archive and to numerous exhibitions and publications.

Mike is perhaps best known for his work on London's high streets, housing estates and the changing riverscape. This exhibition will feature new work exploring the landscape of the estuary as it faces globalised development pressures such as a major new container terminal and an international airport hub.

Lea Valley: Fences | Neighbours

Jane Sarre

A selection from a series of documentary photographs charting change in the Lea Valley from 2008 to 2012. Captured on annual walks around the boundary of the Olympic site these images track the line of the blue fence as it demarcated and closed the site to local usage. Every inch of the boundary route was recorded to create a rich archive of detail.

Many have watched and recorded the building of the Olympic park. This collection looks outwards to the neighbours overlooking the site: it tells an ambivalent story of growth and decline, commerce and community.

ADRIFT- The Unfamiliar Familiar in Modern Society

David Kendall, Gesche Würfel, Nora Alissa, Manuel Vazquez, Haraala Hamilton, Isidro Ramirez, Simon Rowe, Laura Braun, Paul Smith, Lene Hald

GASKET has assembled ten artists whose photography engages directly with the increasing tension that exists between the familiar and the unfamiliar. For some it is our environment that remains constant, forcing us to seek new forms of interaction in a rapidly evolving set of relationships. For others, it is the world itself that is shifting beneath us, and we seek solace in the familiarity of routine and tangible connections.
The exhibited artists come from diverse backgrounds and theoretical positions, but all share the common experience of being Goldsmiths College alumni who studied the Photography and Urban Cultures (PUC) course.

Travellers Children

Colin O'Brien

I came across the travellers in 1987 whilst I was photographing a deserted warehouse near London Fields. They had parked their caravans, in and around, Martello Street near the railway arches by the station. The travellers were Irish, mostly families with three or four children.
I recorded many images over three weeks and got to know the travellers well. They took me into their confidence trusting me with their children. It was only when I started to print the photographs that I realised what an amazing set of pictures I had taken a quarter of a century ago.

Mirror / Art Event

Janina Fleckhaus, Bradley Barnes

Inspired by German romanticism the photographs are an instantaneous mirror of memory, they leave a motionless trace of what has been, a fixed imprint of something that is no longer what it was before, a silent simulacrum of people and places who have disappeared forever from our field of vision. Colours and figures blend together like washes of paint and after closer contemplation photography and painting becomes united.

[new] Futures:Understanding China Using Cropped and other 'Taken' Images

Chris Barrett

Introducing the iconic policy of birth planning, which is often referred to as the ‘one-child policy’ by the outside world. [new] Futures presents the formal imagery of the modern Chinese family coupled with ‘taken’ images, found from Weibo - the Chinese version of twitter. The exhibition touches upon an enduring exploration into the intended and unintended by-products and ramifications that the policy has been responsible for. In an ongoing dialogue between the photographer, Chinese nationals and the world-at-large, an interesting visual perspective emerges in regards to the People’s Republic of China, it’s populus and the people amongst the population.

Halsnoy Tales

Brijesh Patel

Lost in the vast fjords of southern Norway, the tiny island of Halsnoy is crisscrossed by slim roads and dirt tracks. My mind was a mix of dream figures of the Norwegian folktales and of the recent images of the shooting tragedy that had taken place on the island of Utoeya .
All of this resonates in my 'Haslnoy Tales'.
Created in September 2011 during an artist residency on the island of Halsnoy, Norway.

As a result, I created modified iconic characters taken from the religion, history or legends.

Mark Peter Wright

Mark Peter Wright’s first solo exhibition at IMT Gallery is a multimedia installation exploring sensorial experience, history and discourse with reference to a unique site of the reclaimed land of South Gare. As a source of dialogue between the landscape and its occupation, between the urban and the rural, and between its 19th Century manmade origins and the gradual influx of nature, South Gare is home to some major social, commercial and ecological frictions. The exhibition combines photography, film, text and objects to connect the dots between past, present and future conditions of the site and its relationship to change.

The artist will be presenting his first extensive monograph published by Hatje Cantz.

Tom Hunter has been using photography to re-imagine the London borough of Hackney, where he lives, since the late 1980s. With his eye for the unusual and exotic details of everyday life, Hunter creates striking scenes that, taken together, make a compelling portrait of this culturally rich neighbourhood. This is the first extensive monograph on Hunter's photography.

If On A Winter's Night A Traveller...

Jo Phipps

An image of literate interiority can function as the very sign of the human in an age of capitalist distraction. Drawing on art history and literature Jo Phipps’s work explores issues of beholding and absorption within the space and look of reading.

Rhona Eve Clews

“…the nature of my sculpture is not fixed and finished. Processes continue in most of them. Chemical reactions, fermentations, colour changes, decay, drying up. Everything is in a state of change” (Joseph Beuys, 1979).

Rhona's work examines photography's attempts to freeze, capture and retain that which is in a state of transformation.

Exploring forgotten corners and spaces, where dust settles and materials disintegrate, light, weather and time become sculptors: edges dissolve, identity’s blur, new forms emerge.

Through the act of photographing the quotidian is elevated above the everyday, and the audience is invited to intimately gaze at an otherwise unobserved event.

Fraction of the second: Private, Incisive and Explosive

Smita Malde, Falk-Hagen Bernshausen, Elisabeth Blanchet

Capturing a moment in a picture is one of the key elements in photography. Defined by Henri Cartier-Bresson, it is all happening in that fraction of the second – creativity, urge and emotion of capturing that particular moment. “Once you miss it, it’s gone forever.”

Three photographers define ‘this moment’ with their own interpretations. Smita Malde peeps into somebody else’s moment as they are being photographed; Elisabeth Blanchet explores the subject’s changing behaviour seconds in front of the camera; Falk-Hagen Bernshausen manages to ‘freeze’ that decisive second in the fast paced rhythm of Muay Thai boxing inside ‘Team Red Dragons’.

Rosie Mayell

Images from Asia and Europe taken in the past 18 months.
Curious about people and the quirks of everyday life. Rosie studied Fine Art at Chelsea College of Art. Her photographs are often voyeuristic in nature with a strong reference to painting and a nod to Martin Parr, Sophie Calle and Henri Cartier - Bresson. "I am interested in recording the beauty of the banal and the everyday... the exotic and the unknown... ultimately things that amuse or touch me (interactions, details, light, walks, gestures, shadows, signs, windows, grafitti, the sea) ...whether they are at home or abroad, familiar or not".

A Chain of Wooded Mountains

KEEM is a collaboration between artists Kate Elliott and Emma McGarry. It was established as an exploration into the nature of collaboration. Through methodology, ongoing discussion and debate, KEEM produces work which continuously questions subjectivity, materiality and identity.

Last October KEEM travelled to the Balkans, taking 3 cameras and shooting 1237 photographs in 10 days. What happens when two people take the same trip, hold the same cameras, and then reflect separately but side by side?

Both members of KEEM have made a personal edit of 80 images from the original 1237 photographs. For this exhibition, they will both select and display a series of diptychs previously undisclosed to each other - opening up the first chance for conversation, comparison and influence.

Members of the Society share an understanding of the power and importance of learning beyond that of grades, they have also each found themselves here in England because of conflicts in their own countries. My role as a photographer has been to give the society a voice to explore their own place in modern History in the UK and the World.

Chance Would be a Fine Thing

Brendan Delaney, Teresa Levitt, Hugh Look, Peter Luck, Heather Martin, Ingrid Newton, Katrin Nodop, Stefanie Reichelt, Krystina Stimakovits, Edith Templeton, Chris Tribble, Ariadne Van de Ven

12 photographers from the Central Group of London Independent Photography respond to the theme of chance.

As photographers, we like to give the impression that we are totally in control but, despite the current trend for staged or constructed imagery, one of photography's defining characteristics is its susceptibility to chance. The photographer chooses the subject, selects the aperture and shutter speed, frames the composition, but the moment the shutter is released, chance plays a part. An expression or gesture changes, light imperceptibly shifts, a figure crosses our field of vision. The serendipitous moment then becomes ‘a fine thing' indeed.

As a practiced Buddhist and mediator himself, Nicolas sets out to capture that most intimate moment when the sitter slips into the quiet peace of meditation and connects with their own consciousness.

The result is a series of simple, honest and strangely commanding images that are inviting the viewer in to join them in the moment.

The project is in association with MIND, Corby.

Riverbed Stories online

Mandy Williams

The work I am showing is from Riverbed Stories (2012), a series of photographs that document the riverbeds beside the industrial area of Erith, South London. In the past year the river has become increasingly polluted and choked with debris. Mattresses, chairs, televisions, and car tyres litter the beds, along with handless gloves, floating shoes and discarded baby carriages.
In an area of natural beauty, these riverbeds tell a story about the profit and greed of the waste disposal companies and the local council’s difficulty in protecting the environment.

‘Urbanality’ is a visual exploration of the ordinary and the mundane, presenting a series of analogue, double-exposures of buildings – either decadent or brutally bland.

E5 - Chatsworth Rd and Surrounding streets

Guilherme Zauith

E5 is a postcode district within the Borough of Hackney, East London where there used to be a big street market on Chatsworth Rd. During the 1970s recession it started to shrink, with the last four stalls closing down in the mid 1990s.
In the late 1990s young artists and students began to moving to the area, triggering re-generation. There are now coffee shops, a delicatessen, a creperie, bars and other new businesses. In 2011 a Traders and Residents Association was formed to give a voice to the local community. The Olympic impact in the area can only be speculated.

A joint exhibition examining the surfaces and depths of two buildings.

After purchasing a discontinued model house made by Hornby, artist Paul Greenleaf tracked down the original building the model was based on, a semi-detached house in Margate built in 1971. The resulting work is a visual deconstruction and subsequent reconstruction of the ubiquitous ‘modern’ house.

Paul Tucker has photographed the William Morris Gallery in Walthamstow during a major refurbishment. He records the interior of the building in a process of change, revealing layers of its past as well as showing the creation of a new layer for the future.

Traces is a series of works covering the artist’s travels to Arthur’s Seat, Scotland. It focuses on the understanding of the landscape, emphasising the paths taken by mankind over time. It questions the chances we encounter in our lives and tries to give a sense of hope concentrating on the light, erasing the city-scape by over-exposure in a landscape famous with its tormentous rain and gales. It undertakes the lessons to be learned from the journey and the visual knowledge that the nature traces itself.

CONFESSIONS was devised by curator Charlotte Meddings after a series of event that left her questioning what CONFESSIONS we all hold secretly inside.

Meddings commissioned and selected the works of five London based photographers who all responded to a simple brief, take up to ten portraits including a self portrait. Each sitter must agree to confess to something they have done in their lives.

The twist - each confession is anonymous to the audience, never is the images and confession shown together.

This exhibition features portraits of people from all walks of life and a wall of text displaying their CONFESSIONS.

Reflections in Pubs & Bedrooms

Estefania Araujo, Sophie Polyviou

An exhibition of portraiture approached from two opposing angles: Estefania Araujo looks into people's bedrooms, exploring the unique and intimate spaces of routines and private moments, from daily breakfast to afternoon naps; while Sophie Polyviou bases her portraits of young people in pubs and cafes, public spaces where people meet each other to socialise, and they open up about being the 'lost generation' created by the current recession. Juxtaposing the different faces we wear in our own rooms and when in public, the projects are tied by themes of identity, and how we find our place in the world.

Gina Lundy

Throughout the construction of the Olympic site at Stratford, photographer Gina Lundy has been walking the perimeter of enclosed area documenting the rapid regeneration and development happening in preparation for the 2012 Olympic Games.

Concerned with recording the topographic results that external forces such as government policy, economic conditions and developer-led investment have upon the landscape and society, Lundy's photographs aim to explore both on a physical and a psychological level.

Employing different techniques to achieve this aim such as slower analogue film processes and multiple exposures, the viewer is presented with layers of shifting and contrasting surface tensions.

Add to the mix, the day to day life style of a cycle courier with no work benefits or insurance and the family bond that it creates between the riders and you get this.
The show has a documentary feel to it as you journey into a city and sub culture as they breath and grow together.

CINEPHOTO: Photography by Film-Makers

Dan Edelstyn, Mohamed El Laymouni, Hilary Powell, Djonny Chen, Islam El Azzazi, Isabelle Rodriguez, Gillian McIver, Jaime Armengol

Cinema was born out of still photography and has an ongoing relationship with it. Many cinematographers and directors also take still photographs. Some do both as parallel careers; for others, the still photography is a private pastime. As still photography has evolved and developed technically, so has moving image photography. Both now share digital technology for example. Yet they are often seen as being different: experienced differently, practised by totally different sets of people.
This exhibition bring together photographs made by film directors, scenographers and cinematographers, none of whom are “known” as photographers but whose whole world is about making images.

From Heroin to Heroines

Briony Campbell, Elam Forrester, Therese Henningsen, David Roberts and Andrea Luka Zimmerman.

This exhibition traces the journey of the residents of a condemned East End ‘sink estate’ and how they have come to spend their final days reviving the heroines of 18th Century novelist Samuel Richardson. The Haggerston Estate’s blocks were heralded as ‘homes fit for heroes’ only to deteriorate after years of neglect and acquire the label of ‘heroin capital of Europe’. We photographed and filmed the lives of residents as they embody Richardson’s virtuous protagonists after which the estate’s blocks were named.

The exhibition interrogates ideas of home and history, architecture and regeneration, how we’re seen and how we see.

Hoods: Revealed

Maria Coletsis

This series of photographs explores the many faces of the fetish Hood. Often used in sexual practice as a way to remove the face from the process, these portraits incorporate the hood as part of the face. As human beings, we define our identity by our face, which makes them a source of great power. Identity is tied to the face and thus putting a featureless mask on a person is a way of taking away their identity and objectifying them. This collection of portraits does in fact the opposite by revealing a unique identity and face for each hood.

Goy’s social documentary approach captures the atmosphere of Smithfield Market, its idiosyncrasies and the local merchants' tenacity in the face of change and threats from the global market.

Jones’ conceptual approach is inspired by images her father took in the early 60s. She has created her own version of the market today, with her father’s same Rolleicord camera, focusing on women in clubs and bars around Smithfield.

History in the Heart of Hackney. Photo-Walk led by historian Emily Jost

St John at Hackney Churchyard sits in the heart of Hackney old and new. As the graveyard and public space around Hackney’s medieval village church, it has always been a green oasis. A park for the past 100 years, it remains the final resting place of many generations of Hackney residents from world explorers to royal courtiers, and from shoemakers to plague victims and servants. This tour provides an opportunity to find out more about the site’s history, the people buried here, the memorial masonary and to enjoy the 200 trees at their autumnal best. The tour will finish with a look inside St Augustine’s Tower – Hackney’s oldest building – and climb the 135 steps to the roof for the best views of Hackney and beyond. Photographer Heather McDonough will assist the tour. Meet outside St Augustine’s Tower, The Narrow Way, Mare Street E8 1HR near Hackney Central Station. Tickets £8/£6 concs.

Heliacal means ‘belonging to the sun’ in this show the artists rely directly on sun light and natural materials to create their work. From beautifully surreal chlorophyll prints using the leafs natural chemistry to miniscule gothic ‘fairies’ made from roots, leaves, and dead insects, the show promises to delight and intrigue. Exploiting the artistry of old analogue photographic techniques and offering an alternative to the accustomed slicker digital technologies it reminds us of impermanence, imperfection and incompleteness.

The Tumbled House

Emma Jane Spain & Jake Green

A duo whose practices are combined from different ends of the photographic spectrum, one artistic and one commercial.
The construction of home in glossy magazines is a fantasy that is doomed to fail; life can’t keep up the facade of a perfect home. The Tumbled House turns the idea of the constructed home on its head and embraces failures as if they were triumphs. Playing with notation of product photography and ideas of nostalgia, fakery and the damaged Tumbled House builds an ugly product for mass consumption.

This phenomenon is the starting point of In My Country - a series of portraits by Daniel Stier depicting immigrants living in London. In each portrait Pakistanis, Poles, Ghanaians, Indians, Peruvians all don their national dress. The dress serves as a symbol of their cultural heritage and lends their portraits a timeless quality.

Thirty-three years on

Smita Malde

This journey started for me in 1979, when I purchased my first camera, a second hand 35mm Pentax and went on a trip as an adult to the land of my grandparents. Both events were key turning points not only in my visual development but also in discovering my roots and questioning my identity, in being a second generation Indian, born in Kenya. My images from the 70’s to the present reflect this dichotomy of seeing my ancestors’ country with eyes of an insider/outsider. This show takes you on a personal/visual quest which still carries on to this day.

Square E1

Anthony Jones

An exhibition of black and white silver gelatin prints of the Square Mile.
Anthony Jones was born in London in 1962. Since the late 1980's he has developed his fine art photography practise working with a Hasselblad camera and black and white silver gelatin prints.
Though many of his black and white photographs were taken in the city of London, they are about the spirit of a place, not the geographical location itself. The aim being to convey a sense of mystery about the figures and to question their purpose. His work follows a modernist tradition, creating the city in dark shades, a haunting place. Roger Watson, curator at the Fox Talbot Museum has compared his work to that of Bill Brandt and Paul Strand. His work has been published widely including the British Journal of Photography, Victoria and Albert Museum Magazine and features in many corporate and private collections. In 2011 his work was exhibited at the George Eastman House and featured on the blog of award winning book and exhibition designer Elizabeth Avedon.

Punch Professors in England

Tom Hunter

It is 350 years since Samuel Pepys recorded the first sighting of a Punch puppet in England. To celebrate this anniversary, Tom Hunter has created portraits of contemporary Punch practitioners, known since Victorian times as ‘Professors’. The portraits depict each Professor with their booth, expressing their highly individual approaches to their appearance and performance in typically English settings. Hunter says, “The Punch and Judy booths themselves are something to behold, each one uniquely decorated and adorned with a beautiful, hand painted stage drop. They remind me of Dr Who’s TARDIS - miniature theatres transported from another time - but instead of blending into the English environment they transform the locations into whole new worlds of magic and wonder”.
Exhibition curated by Maggie Pinhorn and supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Out of the Box!

Julia Spicer

Buried deep in cupboards and attics, stuffed into tins and shoeboxes, thousands of black and white family histories lie hidden. Once photography became widely available, we snapped away diligently. Every precious image was retained for posterity, however fogged, blurred or mistakenly cropped.

Out of the Box! is Julia Spicer’s celebration of Walthamstow’s role in this heroic photographic heritage. The Museum’s archive will be augmented with new ‘vintage’ photographs of the local area and its characters and personalities, taken with Ensign cameras originally made in the Borough. It’s a museum show but liberties with history may well be taken.

Prix Pictet Conversations on Photography

Michael Fried, Francis Hodgson, Leo Johnson and John Riddy

Ten per cent of all the photographs ever taken have been taken in the last twelve months. In an age defined by ever increasing numbers of photographic images in art and visual culture, how do we value the contemporary power and importance of photography? Is there a necessary divide between photography as an art form and photography as an agent for social change and mass communication?

Art historian and critic Michael Fried, Photography Critic for The Financial Times Francis Hodgson, sustainability expert Leo Johnson and artist John Riddy debate the distinctive authority of photography within and beyond the gallery walls.
In association with Prix Pictet. Supported by Pictet & Cie.

Booking essential. Price £5

Photomonth Lecture - Simon Norfolk

The eminent photographer talks on the land as battlefield and the inscription of memory and metaphor in the natural world.
Simon Norfolk is a landscape photographer whose work over the last ten years has been themed around a probing and stretching of the meaning of the word ‘battlefield’ in all its forms. As such he has photographed in some of the world’s worst war-zones and refugee crises, but is equally at home photographing supercomputers used to design military systems or test launches of nuclear missiles.
His work is widely acclaimed, he has received many prestigious prizes and produced three monographs. He has been described as ‘passionate, intelligent and political’.

From Page to Screen: Making and Remembering Women's History

This event asks how aspects of women’s history and ‘the women’s movement’ have been represented and mediated at key points in time, looking across The Women’s Library Collections and at historical biographies and popular television drama. Professor June Purvis will talk on the biographies of Emmeline Pankhurst, Helen Wheatley (University of Warwick) and Vicky Ball (University of Sunderland) will explore the way in which dramas such as Upstairs Downstairs and Shoulder to Shoulder engage with histories of women and the women’s movement.
Event organised in partnership with the Women’s Film History Network and MeCCSA, Women’s Media Studies Network, with support from the Centre for Research in Media and Cultural Studies, University of Sunderland. Bookings:
