Sarah Moon | About Colour

Exhibition: 20.02. – 05.04.2014
Michael Hoppen Gallery
3 Jubilee Place, London, SW3 3TD

It is difficult to summarise Sarah Moon‘s fantastical photography – almost thirty years of image making has made Sarah Moon a legend in her own lifetime. Well known for her personalised commercial and editorial work since the early 1970s, Moon has continued to investigate a dream world of her own invention, without repetition or compromise. For more than thirty-five years, Moon’s heart-stopping fashion images have bucked every so-called commercial trend, from the need to establish eye contact – it is only rarely there – to the belief that the most alluring fashion photograph must be glossy, even hyper-real.

About Colour’ brings together new, old and unseen works, photographed exclusively in colour. Continue Reading →

Juliane Eirich kannte Japan schon von früheren Besuchen, als sie im Sommer 2011 zurückkehrte, um hier zu arbeiten. Aber dieses Mal war vieles anders. Einige Monate zuvor hatte sich die Reaktorkatastrophe von Fukushima ereignet. Die Begeisterung für und die Neugier auf das fremde Land mischte sich mit einem unterschwelligen Gefühl der Angst und der Bedrohung. Continue Reading →

Es gibt keinen Schmerz ohne Herz, kein Licht ohne Finsternis, keine Angst ohne Hoffnung, und umgekehrt.”

Als Ralf Schmerberg vor zwanzig Jahren mit dem Filmemachen begann, entschloss er sich gleichzeitig, keine Auftragsfotografie mehr zu betreiben, denn wo ein Auftrag ist, so sagt er, da ist Geld, und wo Geld ist, da sind auch Erwartungen, denen sich die Bilder schließlich anpassen müssen. Stattdessen benützt er die Fotografie seit dieser befreienden Entscheidung als ein ganz persönliches Medium, eine Art Tagebuch, in dem er festhält, was ihm auf seinen Reisen und Spaziergängen begegnet. Unbeeinflusst von fremden oder auch eigenen Erwartungen, ohne ein Seriendenken oder einen Anspruch auf ästhetische Exklusivität im Hinterkopf, folgt er dem einfachen Impuls, Dinge, die ihn emotional bewegen, fotografisch festzuhalten.

Jenny Fitz | Kammerspiel

For four years, Jenny Fitz, a graduate of the Neuen Schule für Fotografie Berlin, accompanied a young actor for her project Kammerspiel. In her work, the photographer questions the habitus and role-play of people from her social environment.

At first it was curiosity that made me take the pictures, and later the urge to grasp our relationship. It’s a story about boundaries. Getting close. Pulling away. What constantly fascinated me, was the unpredictability with which he confronted me and the camera.” Continue Reading →

Mark Curran | The Market

…what people don’t understand… is that what happens in the market is pivotal to their lives… not on the periphery…but slap, bang, in the middle…

Dagmar Keller + Martin Wittwer | Passengers

Passengers” is the result of an observation Dagmar Keller and Martin Wittwer made at night at a bus station while travelling through Poland.
For a moment, the passengers on an old bus, obscured behind stained, ice-covered windows, in the pale light of the bus station had the appearance of figures in a painting. Travellers, fallen out of time. Tired, lost in thought, their faces drawn by sadness or lit up with joy – so close and yet distanced behind the glass. Dagmar Keller and Martin Wittwer have preserved those quiet, fleeting moments in their series “Passengers”. Continue Reading →
