NICK BRANDT

NICK BRANDT

 

Nick Brandt photographs the vanishing natural world of East Africa. Brandt´s goal and passion is to create a last testament to the wild animals and places on the brink of extinction.

His photographs stand out as a combination of exquisite panoramas of animals within dramatic landscapes and graphic portraits more akin to studio portraiture of human subjects from the early 20th Century. Many of Brandt´s photographs convey a rare sense of intimacy, as if he knew the animals and invited them to sit for him in front of the camera.

Nick Brandt was born in 1966, London, UK and holds a degree form Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design. He has had multiple solo shows around the Globe, including in New York, London, Sydney, Brussels and Paris.

OLE MARIUS JØRGENSEN: SNIPPETS FROM A TRAVELOGUE

OLE MARIUS JØRGENSEN: SNIPPETS FROM A TRAVELOGUE

4 October – 24 November 2018

 

In the series “Vignettes of a Salesman” Ole Marius Jørgensen stages situations inhabited by a lone traveller. The cinematic and dreamy atmosphere in Jørgensen’s photographs is heavily influenced by his background in film. Surrounded by beautiful rural vistas or situated in deserted locations, such as empty diners, motels or petrol stations, the traveller wanders through a scenery, which leaves us unsure whether we are trudging through actual outer landscapes or complex psychological terrains.

Ole Marius Jørgensen (b. 1976) is a Norwegian photographer, who has exhibited widely in the United States, Asia, and Europe. His work can be found in collections in Hong Kong, Stockholm, Oslo, London, Madrid and Berlin.
He is currently working on a book of his work to be published in 2019.

LISE JOHANSSON: COMPOSITE STRUCTURES

LISE JOHANSSON: COMPOSITE STRUCTURES

21 June – 04 August 2018

The artistic practice of Lise Johansson unfolds somewhere between the conscious and unconscious mind – it exists both in the realms of reality and fantasy.

Johansson investigates notions of authenticity and challenges the classical order and structures with which photos are usually constructed. In her studio she edits and merges different photographic elements into final compositions depicting worlds of dreams and emotions, association and longing. These sceneries hold atmospheres as light and breezy as Hockney’s pastel paintings or as gloomy as Tarkovsky’s filmic universe. They make us question not only how we perceive each other and the world, which surrounds us, but also how we connect with the self, the mind and its various inherent potentials.

In all of Johansson’s work themes of identity and belonging come up, take for example the series Hearth, where photos of doll-like humans are superimposed into environments consisting of architecture models, planning future homes to come.

This is not an illustration generated to make potential buyers relate better, this is a slightly unsettling juxtaposition, confusing us with its scale and perspective and thereby making us wonder about the unknown parts of the images. The mood is set, and like in the 50’s television anthology The Twilight Zone, we don’t quite know what eerie twists and turns are waiting for us around the corner. Johansson allows us to imagine, and in the end leaves the final interpretation open to the viewer’s own composition.

Lise Johansson (b. 1985) is from Sæby, Denmark, and currently lives and works in Copenhagen, Denmark.
She is educated from The Media College Denmark in 2016, and has travelled the world extensively as part of her photographic
practice. Johansson has won several prizes, including the Sony World Photography Awards.
