New personal work from Beate in collaboration with stylist Gemma Therese Pearce.
This series aims to inspire the possibility of new and futuristic flavours, in endlessly exciting combinations. The use of sculptural forms and directional lighting, similar to that of an exhibition piece, is used to dramatise the scene.
Amit & Naroop’s personal project ‘Urban Forager’ focusses on substance abuse.
Up and down the country, little silver canisters can be spotted thrown across the urban landscape of major cities. They contain Nitrous Oxide or ‘laughing gas’ and are made in Taiwan for the catering industry.
Inhaled via the use of a balloon, this NOZ gas is being used by teenagers across the UK as a drug. It is seen as a gateway drug, leading users onto more dangerous and addictive drugs.
These images form part of an exhibition called The Urban Forager curated by designer Michelle Lowe Holder, to be shown at The London Design Festival in September. The campaign highlights the material waste caused by the use of NOZ and the consequences it has on the environment.
Nigel shot this series of bikers in the Autumn whilst traveling with friends in the UK. The use of natural light displays Nigel’s genuine ability to capture feeling whilst being light on the foot.
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.
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.
Place du Jeu de Balle 56, 1000 Brussels
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.
