Miniaturesque Slinkachu Exhibition at Andipa Gallery London

Miniaturesque is an exhibition showing new work shot in London by Photographer / Street artist Slinkachu. Slinkachu builds little worlds with model people with a black comidic over tone, if you like Modern Toss and David Shrigle you will love his work. Most of the actual art works that Slinkachu makes are left in the places he installs them. For most of his work the only permanent record is the photographs he shoots, he leaves the physical objects in place which in all likelihood means they will be destroyed by the hustle and bustle of the city.

Salt and Silver at the Tate Britain London

After taking a look around ‘Time, Conflict, Photography’ at the Tate Modern I hopped on a bus (you can also take the boat) and headed down to the Tate Britain to look at their other photo exhibition ‘Salt and Silver’. The Tate Britain is displaying 90 Salted paper prints, salted paper prints are one of the earliest forms of photography. The medium was invented by William Henry Fox Talbot in 1839 which was a mere 11 years after the first permanent photograph was taken. Due to their fragile nature very few of the original prints still exist today and this is the first exhibition to show just Salted paper prints.

Drawn By Light exhibition at the London Science Museum Media Space

The Media Space latest exhibition packs more Iconic photographic prints into one room than you’ve probably ever seen in your lifetime. As soon as you walk in you can’t help but notice one of the most iconic photographs of all time: Steve McCurry’s Afghan Girl. I’ve seen the Afghan Girl image many times but this is the first time I’ve seen a print and it’s absolutely gorgeous, hanging next to it was Yousuf Karsh’s 1947 iconic portrait of Winston Churchill.

Brighton Photo Fringe business: MiniClick talk, Tim Andrews Over the Hill Exhibition and The Shot I Never Forgot

The Brighton Biannual and companion Photo Fringe festival are now in full swing. I’ve not got any stand alone shows in this years festival but I have images in two group shows and I am speaking at a MiniClick event. Combined the Biannual and Photo Fringe is a massive photography festival and would be well worth a trip to Brighton from London and further afield. If you are from London and this post does not tempt you down I recommend you go to ‘Make Life Worth Living‘ and ‘Open for Business‘ at the Media Space at the London Science Museum.

Nick Hedges’ ‘Make Life Worth Living’ exhibition at the Science Museum’s Media Space

Nick Hedges was commissioned by the housing charity Shelter to document the harsh living conditions that people in poverty where forced to live in from 1968 – 1972. The work was used to help Shelter better campaign for those in poverty. To protect the anonymity of the people depicted the images have been used in a very limited way up and till now, this is the first public showing of the work since it was created over forty years ago.
