Experimental Photography 1945 – 1950s @ L Parker Stephenson Photographs

Experimental Photography 1945 – 1950s
September 18 – November 28, 2015

During the period when a new consumerist culture, nurtured by unparalleled economic expansion, coexisted with Cold War anxieties, many American and European artists turned away from realism to focus inwardly. In their quests, the photographers among them took as source material the avant-garde work of their predecessors in the 1920s and 30s and further challenged, deconstructed and otherwise experimented with the unique nature of the medium. Through the exploration of light, paper, film, contrast and chemistry they played with forms to create surreal imagery, emphasize movement and speed, or make abstractions.

This expression of the psychological through the physical or gestural was echoed throughout many arts of the period (e.g. Abstract Expressionism) as was the deconstruction and questioning of the conventions of the media themselves (e.g. Beat poetry, free jazz). With respect to the latter, comparisons can inevitably be made with the current generation of artists experimenting with technology to create photo-based work.

KAISU HÄKKÄNEN @ Northern Photographic Centre

KAISU HÄKKÄNEN: Mad Johnson was here

The series was born when Häkkänen read a name of a street wrong: Mads
Johnsen’s gate became Mad Johnson’s street. Ever since a man called Mad
Johnson has steered the artist along the North Cap and even further.
Häkkänen has shot the series on different sides of the Varang peninsula
between the years 2012-2013 and in the summer 2014 in Svalbard in Grumant
and Barentsburk. This summer she has spent another residency period in
Vadsø and finished the series.

27 October – 21 November 2015

During a career spanning the best part of the twentieth century, Berenice Abbott (1898-1991) produced one of the most significant and varied bodies of photography ever made. Although widely regarded as one of the most important American documentary photographers, the exhibition at Beetles+Huxley this autumn will be the first career encompassing retrospective to be mounted in the UK. Stretching from her early celebrity portraits, through her famous ‘Changing New York’ project, to her ground-breaking science photography, the exhibition will bring Abbott’s genius to London.
