Beate follows on from the success of ‘Somewhere in Between’ by expanding on the award-nominated series.

A moment in time, however fleeting is encapsulated using mirrors and translucent coloured perspex. Lighting is positioned in such a way to create, momentary shadow structures.

The series is as much reflective on the human experience as it is a visual delight.

 

‘Beneath the Veil’ is Elise’s most recent personal project with a focus on body curves, textures, and tone.

The use of a veil symbolises barriers and change. Close crops of the model dominate this series and build on the intimacy that surrounds marriage.

Oli was awarded a winner in the hugely competitive ‘Personal Work’ category at the PDN for this series exploring people at crossroads.

Drawing inspiration from some of the pioneers for Chicago street photography; Harry Callahan and Ray Metzker, his new collection continues the long tradition of documenting people within urban environments. The series was shot over a 12 month period across multiple US cities; LA, Miami, San Francisco, Chicago, New Orleans, Houston, New York and Atlanta.

With his shoestring budget, Oli stayed in hostels and spent his days walking the city streets with a minimal kit, to discover the subtle differences between people and places. Driven by the endless chance and a prevalent political crossroads for the American people.

We are all looking forward to the ceremony on the 25th June!

Marco takes his love for the hyper-real to Bombay Beach Biennale!

The collage created out of life-size cutouts is symbolic of the rich history of Bombay Beach and the Salton Sea, which in its heyday was a glamorous Hollywood destination.

Today, due to an environmental catastrophe that polluted the lake, almost overnight the town went from boom to bust making it feel almost like a post-apocalypic disaster zone

From Erik Almas’s personal series focussing on insecurities and the stigma around body features.

Eriks personal challenge to capture emotion, with a focus on the visual is a step away from much of his commercial work, which is based in the realm of the conceptual.

Erik said of the project “It was both a gift and a joy to focus so intently upon emotion.”

 

“After a first solo show in Belgium at the end of 2015 that introduced Peter Lippmann’s photographs to the general public, Art22 Gallery is proud to present his second solo exhibition dedicated to Soletown.”

‘Soletown’ interprets a passing of time through the reclaiming and repurposing of consumer goods.

Peter will be present at the private view to discuss the personal project. Thursday 12th April – 6 pm – 9 pm.

The exhibition will run from 13th of April – 6th of May.

Marco takes us to the sunny shores of Margate for his recent personal series titled ‘Margate’

Marco’s candid approach, jaunty angles and direct camera flash create the illusion of a high-end catwalk. Being littered with cutouts, these images bring together new experimentation methods and that of his origins – catwalk photography.

Over the Christmas break Elise has been expanding on her personal project ‘Skin We’re In’.

The series of bodyscapes scrutinise the human body in all its imperfections. Challenging the norm with a project that turns ‘unsightly’ markings into epicentres of beauty.

 

 

With the sun out and shirts coming off…

Beate worked with stylist Johanna Mills on this new personal series drawing attention to the importance of lotions for protection and moisturisation.

 

 

Nigel Riches got his feet wet visiting the legend that is ‘Paul’ for some surf photography. These incredible handcrafted boards are made from scratch in the district known as ‘Factories’ and are built specifically for the tricky Cape Town surf.
