There was a really interesting documentary on More 4 the other night about the storage of nuclear waste in the future. It asked a lot of questions that I had never even thought about; what will the world be like in 100,000 years, and how do you build a place that could survive until then, seeing as nothing we have built has lasted even a tenth of this?
Go here to watch it online.
Thank you!! :D
I was really excited to see the new exhibition, The Lives of Great Photographers…
But was a little bit disappointed. Although it was the chance to see some famous photographers work, I think the title is a bit misleading- I can’t say I learnt much about any of their lives from the exhibition.
I wasn’t that syked about David Spero’s Churches series…
But I was blown away by it. These buildings, at first glance, have little in common, apart from maybe looking a little run down and mostly on industrial estates. But they all are the unlikely homes of churches around the country. If you’re in Bradford definitely check this out.
I just found this new website which I think is a really interesting idea (maybe because I am a massive photobook geek but whatever). The Photo Book Club are going to be looking at a different famous photo book each month, getting people to bring their opinions and ideas about it to the table. The book last month was The Americans, and this month it is Richard Avedon’s Observations.
To get involved or find more out about it head over to http://photobookclub.org/.
Iris Janke’s work was exhibited at CO gallery in Berlin as the chosen artist of their Talent show. The work is largely based around her family, and I particularly liked the images that showed the same subject at the same time but at a different moment. Their slightly different positions and expressions question the idea that photography has to be about that one ‘decisive moment’.
