Jeffrey Silverthorne / Claude Batho / Wonderland @ musée Nicéphore Niépce

Jeffrey Silverthorne / Claude Batho / Wonderland
18 October 2014 to 18 January 2015

Jeffrey Silverthorne, The Precision of Silence
Retrospective
First European retrospective, the exhibition highlights the work of Jeffrey Silverthorne (born 1946), American photographer exploring consistently for forty years the most extreme subjects. Morgues, where in the 1970s, sometimes to transcend the representation of death, raw portraits of transvestites and transsexuals, the representation of the body in all its forms remains a recurring theme in his work. The references to the great masters of painting mingle with experiments on the photographic medium: layering, cuttings, collages …
Death, sex … the artist scrutinizes anxieties, obsessions and confronts us with visceral fears to help us better dominate.

Claude Batho, Poetry of the intimate
Through his photographs, Claude Batho (1935-1981) was attached to the simplest objects that were his daily life to familiar landscapes, his inner circle. The apparent simplicity of representations gives way to sensibility, a silent beauty often associated with silver prints in black and white. This simplicity makes poetry and triumph of banality. Gesture wife photography Claude Batho reads like a diary in which subjects are not extraordinary moments in life but ultimately insignificant and immutable moments.

Brighton Photo Fringe
4 October – 2 November 2014

Through its prominent presence alongside Brighton Photo Biennial, the internationally recognised photography festival, Brighton Photo Fringe connects early-career artists to a global audience.

The BPF14 events programme will include over 80 exhibitions and events, including pop-up displays, panel discussions, workshops, talks, guided tours, participatory events and a book fair. Underpinning and supporting this eclectic selection of exhibitions permeating the city this October, Brighton Photo Fringe are working closely with partners Metro Imaging, London’s most trusted and reliable pro lab, and Miniclick to deliver a number of events, including:

Collectives’ Hub
A large open plan office space on the seventh floor of Vantage Point, near Preston Circus, will showcase 12 exhibitions by UK Photography Collectives selected from open submission by the Brighton Photo Fringe trainee curators.

Projects and Events Hub
BPF14 Projects and Events Hub at Phoenix Brighton hosts a range of events including a Photo Publishers’ Market in collaboration with Photoworks and Miniclick. Format and Wideyed photography collectives will showcase their archives, alongside an exhibition for Black History Month. The main gallery will show Assembly, a solo exhibition by Anthony Luvera who has been working with homeless people living in Brighton & Hove to create photographs and sound recordings, and to progress his ongoing series Assisted Self-Portraits.

OPEN14
The festival’s keynote exhibition is a solo show by Peter Watkins, who was selected from an international open call. Sponsored by Metro Imaging, the exhibition will take place at The Regency Town House, an impressive partly restored historic home from the 1820s. Peter creates installations that bring together his enigmatic autobiographical photographs with sculpture to engage with ideas of memory and fiction. A 2014 graduate of the Royal College of Art MA Photography course, he has previously featured in the British Journal of Photography’s ‘ones to watch’ list.

I come from a place… @ Kettle’s Yard

unnamedI come from a place…
18 October – 26 October 2014

The project focuses on the North Cambridge area and in particular the Arbury Estate, which was built from 1957.

Working with both young people and those who were instrumental in forming the new community, the project explores the needs of a new community, how those needs are met and the impact on a new generation. The exhibition will include my contemporary photographs, photographs by youth group ‘Club United’, photos of Arbury Carnival from 1977 onwards, donated by the community and oral histories.
