Les Recomendamos.. / We recommend.. Japan Exposures






Japan Exposures: a personal introduction to Japanese photography

The people behind Japan Exposures are active photographers with a deep understanding of the interests and needs of their fellow practitioners. We are personally connected to key Japanese photographers, galleries, publishers, equipment manufacturers and suppliers, and even academics working in field. But even more important than connections, we know that, amongst others, there are two immutable desires in every one of us: to look at different ways of working and to look at the work of other photographers. We are working for you to make this a reality and mutually increase both your and our exposure to Japan and its photographic wealth.

Japan Exposures: una introducción personal a la fotografía japonesa.

Las personas detrás del proyecto Japan Exposures son fotógrafos con un entendimiento amplio de los intereses y necesidades de la gente le medio. Son personalmente conectados con fotógrafos japoneses claves, galerías, publicistas, productores de equipo, y académicos trabajando en el campo. Pero mas importante que las conexiones, entre otras cosas, son dos deseos inmutables por parte de todos los involucrados: encontrar diferentes maneras de trabajar y ver el trabajo de otros fotógrafos. Están trabajando para que el publico este mas involucrado con la fotografía japonesa y su legado fotográfico.

Les Recomendamos / We Recommend : Women in Photography









WIPNYC was launched in June of 2008 by Amy Elkins and Cara Phillips. As an internet-based project, WIPNYC is an outlet to exhibit work outside of the traditional model of the commercial art world, allowing it to reach a global audience. Mixing emerging photographers with artists that have achieved high levels of success within fine art and commercial worlds, the project is designed to be a resource for photographers, editors, curators, gallery owners, and viewers alike to discover and enjoy the work of female artists. Exhibitions are bi-monthly and include artists both selected from an open submission and those sought out to participate. WIPNYC presents a solo exhibition of work from select photographers every other Tuesday of the month.

Co-curated by Amy Elkins and Cara Phillips, Women in Photography is a project of Humble Arts Foundation.

PhotoSocial [11] Photography can never be site-specific! Thu 7 Jan 18.30 - 21.00

Join us at our bar night showcasing photography, with music, debate and diversion.

Is all photography by its very nature site-specific? Or, does any meaningful definition of the term site-specific necessarily exclude the photographic image?

This PhotoSocial's motion - Photography can never be site-specific! - will be argued for by Duncan Wooldridge, artist and lecturer, and against by Richard Parry, Assistant Curator, Hayward Gallery.

Organised by The Photographers' Gallery with the independent curatorRose Lejeune.
