Spring Photography Selection exhibition featured on Aesthetica blog

"Navigating between the constructed and the observed, the included pieces jump between portraying the lived experience to reenactments of vulnerability through cinematic narratives. The works challenge viewers to consider their own position in relation to the artist and the observed, reflecting on how the human condition is determined its environment.

Included within the selection is  Nadav Kander's critically acclaimed series BODIES,  featuring six women and 1 man with painted bodies set against the void of the photographer's studio. The bodies encapsulate forms of the classical and renaissance past, while also modernising the nude genre to act as a tool for philosophical exlporation.

There will also be work from Norwegian photographer, Geir Moseid, whose practice is often based around moments randomly selection from an everyday narrative. The home acts as the stage for many of his images, suggesting a subtle, sinister undercurrent. More recently his work has extended to explore notions of masculinity and sexuality through various mediums and locations. While Moseid directs his subjects in language, lighting and costume, he prefers to work in an open-ended way, and to trigger emotions or memories already present in the viewer.

Glen Erler's project Family Tree traces the roots of the artist's upbringing through quiet, cinematic photographs. Some of his images are full of personal significance and emotional attachments and others deal with the everyday and the mundane. And Mona Kuhn's Bordeaux Series  is a selection of nude portraits of the artist's friends and extended family. Each sitter is photographed in the same room of an old farmhouse, and the portraits are displayed alongside black and white vistas of the surrounding landscape.

The final two artist's are Julie Cockburn and Michael Wolf. Cockburn embelishes found photographs, embroidering, painting and reassembling, while Michael Wolf depicts the infamous conditions endured on Tokyo's subway and the uncompromising close human proximity experienced daily by thousands of workers."
