JAMIE HAWKESWORTH: A SHORT, PLEASURABLE JOURNEY


There's still time if you're shooting across the pond any day now to check out one of my favourite photographers, Jamie Hawkesworth’s very first exhibition at the Red Hook Labs in Brooklyn. 
Entitled “A Short, Pleasurable Journey: 51 Photographs by Jamie Hawkesworth”, the exhibition features a selection of his images from the last five years taken everywhere from Brighton, Whitby and Memphis to Preston Bus Station - "The most important thing is that it feels personal and authentic, to feel like me. It’s a short journey, literally, as I’ve been doing this for five years,” says Hawkesworth.

Alongside the photographs you can also see two short films - running until April 24th, go now! More info HERE.

JEAN-PAUL GOUDE: SO FAR SO GOUDE EXHIBITION

Blue-black in Black on Brown, New York, 1981


Jean-Paul Goude, the man who shot Naomi Campbell riding an elephant and a crocodile, 

Kim Kardashian balancing a champagne glass on her bottom, and Grace Jones in various poses - the singer and performer was his muse and former girlfriend - has now opened his exhibition “So Far So Goude” at Milan’s PAC museum. 

Creating some of the past few decades most visually arresting images, Goude's iconic archive is a sexually-charged and surrealist mix of cult imagery - the exhibition, hosted by Tod's, focuses on the women who have inspired him from the “minets” of the ’60s to the New York of Warhol and cultural hybrids to Grace Jones
“We looked back in time and we tried to determine the roots of my work,” he told WWD. “This clearly indicates my preferences.”

"So Far, So Goude’ runs at Milan’s PAC Museum until 19 June.

 

WOLFGANG TILLMANS AT TATE MODERN

Love (Hands in Air) (1989) by Wolfgang Tillmans

Photographer and artist, Wolfgang Tillmans, is to stage a retrospective exhibition of his work at the Tate Modern in February 2017.

With his saturated snapshots and lo-fi aesthetic, Tillmans work over the past 14 years has predominantly focused on his engagement with political issues, from climate change and gay rights to the refugee crisis.
The exhibition at Tate will begin from his archive back in 2003 (the last time he exhibited there, just three years after he won the Turner Prize), and feature his photography, video, publication, curatorial projects and work in music - Tillmans first grew to appreciate photography via the pictures on record sleeves, and also installed a listening room with a hi-fi and a selection of CDs, at his Berlin gallery Between Bridges in 2014 - his vision was to offer an open space for dialogue and elevate pop music to the same status as fine art.

The exhibition at Tate will also include a ten day takeover of the South Tank in the new Switch House. For more info head HERE.


 

GOSHA RUBCHINSKIY AW16



Russian designer Gosha Rubchinskiy has unveiled his AW16 lookbook, which features his signature post-soviet inspired streetwear aesthetic - self-photographed, it's a fusion of 90s subcultural looks tracing the vibes of skinheads, skaters and punks - along with his Save and Survive themed collection which debuted at Paris Men’s Fashion Week back in January.


Along with the look book comes a new film which documents the build-up to the show - both visuals come post-Rubchinskiy’s release of his book, Youth Hotel, and the announcement earlier this month, that he would be presenting his SS17 collection at Florence’s biannual menswear trade show Pitti Uomo in June.

In 2006, legendary photographer 
Bob Carlos Clarke threw himself under a train - a dramatic end to a troubled and complex life. He left behind a portfolio of iconic images, many of them featuring women in a state of undress, a subject that obsessed him long before he took up a camera, earning him a reputation as "Britain's answer to Helmut Newton".

Today is the 10th anniversary of his untimely death and in homage to his archive of work, The Little Black Gallery in London will host the 10th anniversary exhibition MADE IN HEAVEN which runs from from 21 April - 16 May 2016. 
To request a preview price list, head HERE.

NEW BOOK: IAN DAVID BAKER x J.W. ANDERSON


You may recall J.W. Anderson's previous collaboration with cult youth photographer Ian David Baker - most widely known for his series of pictures entitled Cruising Camera - which saw the designer curate and sell 50 never-before-seen images by Baker via his official website, as part of the online store's first anniversary.

Well now Anderson is showcasing the image maker's work yet again, this time in a book, which documents most of his archive from the late ’80s and early ’90s including gay youth, gay pride parades, protests in London and the quirky, unusual side of seaside resorts.

Limited to just 500 copies, Anderson says, “I first saw Ian’s work in a very small magazine booklet that I bought a long time ago, the fun sense of nostalgia drew me in”.


The collection of stark black-and-white images speak for themselves - you can buy the book entitled Ian David Baker x J.W. Anderson, priced at £49.00, via J.W. Anderson workshops or pre-order it now HERE.

WILLY VANDERPERRE 10 WORKS FOR RAF SIMONS



Willy Vanderperre has created a limited edition box of photographs entitled 10 works for Raf Simons, paying tribute to his collaborations with the designer, featuring a series of prints spanning both of their careers together - in the photographer’s own words, the collection is a “reflection of post-zeitgeist, past-present-urgency, and neo-nostalgia for the future.” 






Produced in partnership with booksellers IDEA, the box contains ten prints in an edition of 25 signed and numbered copies - as Vanderperre explains, his selections from the archives follow the signature dark romanticism in his work, “I try to evoke an emotional response, and I express my feelings through it.”

If you want to be 1 of 25 to own the exclusive box, then head over to the new Dover Street Market in Haymarket, which is now open.
