Photojournalist W. Eugene Smith changed the face of documentary photography by integrating his life into the lives of his subjects. During a career which spanned nearly four decades, Smith demonstrated a consistent drive to reveal the humanity of his subjects and to remove the distance between photographer and subject that had been integral to traditional portrait photography. Smith was a pioneer in the field of photojournalism, telling powerful stories through his photographic essays. Continue →


Les Zozios is a series of photographs of sculptures which Millet quickly assembles from objects found in his home. He approaches the work with spontaneity, taking no more than ten minutes to complete and photograph each piece. His delight in shape and color brings to mind the works of Joan Miró and Cy Twombly. Millet compares the lines of his sculptural creations to a skeleton, and suggests that the act of photographing grants it life. Continue →


This exhibition celebrates thirty years of achievement by acclaimed British photographer Michael Kenna.

Stephen Hughes is drawn to marginal landscapes, often where the urban and the natural worlds jut up against one another. Each location is carefully selected, but nothing is staged; Hughes captures unexpected moments by observing life as it unfolds before him. David Chandler examines some of these moments in his essay on the artist's work: "a family holds hands as they peer over the cliffs of Beachy Head, edging towards oblivion; the sci-fi architecture of the Atomium in Brussels looms over a young couple as they embrace in a featureless park; and a child lays prone, gazing through the glass roof of Sunderland's Glass Museum."
