Photography: Yangtze, The Long River by Nadav Kander

“After several trips to different parts of the river, it became clear that what I was responding to and how I felt whilst being in china was permeating into my pictures; a formalness and unease, a country that feels both at the beginning of a new era and at odds with itself. China is a nation that appears to be severing its roots by destroying its past in the wake of the sheer force of its moving “forward” at such an astounding and unnatural pace. A people scarring their country and a country scarring its people.”
- Nadav Kander

Yangtze, The Long River, by Nadav Kander

Photography: Vincent Fournier

Vincent Fournier’s images reflect his fascination for the space age through an archive of the most significant space complexes from all over the world including, The Yuri Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Centre of the Russian Federation, the Mars Desert Research Station in Utah, the Guiana Space Centre, the Atacama Desert Observatories in Chile, among others. From the global village to the space odyssey and more recently the underworld project, his photographs are allegories and criticism for our dream of a science fiction utopia.

Photography: Naoto Fukasawa The Outline by Tamotsu Fujii

Product designer Naoto Fukasawa unfailingly designs shapes to meet people’s expectations. His unique efforts to determine the “outline of things” from people’s unconscious are gathering attention worldwide. Advertising photography expert Tamotsu Fujii superbly depicts outlines blending into light and air.
The “outline of design”, something obvious yet invisible, emerges through the efforts of these two men. This exhibition, including 100 products designed by Naoto Fukasawa and some 70 photographs taken by Tamotsu Fujii over 4 years, is something never attempted before – an exhibition revealing what everyone has sought… the “outline of design”.

Exhibition: Richard Mosse: The Fall

The Fall is a photographic survey of our historic unconscious. Richard Mosse travelled to intensely remote locations, from the Patagonian Andes to the Yukon Territories, and worked as an embed with the US military to produce work for this exhibition. The Fall is a rescue mission to try to locate our blasted sense of landscape and archeology, and reclaim the primeval waste for our imagination. Produced to an epic scale, each of the photographs in The Fall is a history painting for our times.

Richard Mosse, The Fall, November 19 – December 23, at Jack Shainman Gallery
