Picturing Prince:​ Photographs by Steve Parke

This November, Proud Galleries will present Picturing Prince: Photographs by Steve Parke, a collection of rare and intimate prints to coincide with the recent launch of Parke’s acclaimed photobook. Prince and Parke met in the late 80s at the artist’s renowned private estate and recording studio, Paisley Park, described by the latter as a ‘mecca of creativity’. Their partnership was consolidated when Prince requested Parke to be his official photographer, a creative alliance that produced an extensive archive of over 500 photographs. Impromptu shoots from around the Paisley Park site offer a glimpse into life off the stage and the drive behind Prince’s ambition. Whilst an employee, Parke was also a trusted companion of the icon and it is evident throughout the shots that the pair shared a unique connection. Proud will be commemorating the genius of a man whose creative expression continues to unfold. Picturing Prince (9th November – 3rd December 2017, Proud Central 32 John Adam Street London WC2N 6BP) will be accompanied by the fully illustrated book published by Parke in collaboration with Octopus Publishing Group.

I helped volunteers sort items and then felt the need to walk into the area to see and feel what other people were going through. It took me some hours before being able to start taking pictures. There was Silence. A deep Silence. Our eyes talked to each other. Our hands helped each other. There was a big and deep sense of humanity. As it should be always in our lives.” Click through / read on to find out about the Beyond Words exhibition dates and times.

Instant Stories: Wim Wenders’ Polaroids

Zoltan Arva-Toth | Photographers , Events
thumbnail

The Photographers’ Gallery has announced a new exhibition offering a rare opportunity to see the personal and previously unseen Polaroid work of Oscar-nominated filmmaker, Wim Wenders. Whilst his larger photographic works are well known, this is the first time he has shown a selection of the many thousands of Polaroid photographs taken, both on and off location, between the early 1970s and mid 80s. The exhibition Instant Stories presents over 200 of Wenders’ Polaroids encompassing portraits of cast and crew, friends and family, behind-the scenes, still-lives, street-photography and landscapes. Alongside diary-like impressions and homages to his artistic inspirations, including Fassbinder and Warhol, the small format images take us on a literal and metaphoric journey through Europe and the US. From his first trip to New York, his fascination with American TV, views from rooftops,, shop-fronts, roads, cars and many other visual recordings, Wenders’ Polaroids reflect a distinctive and lyrical vision -  at once both intimate and portentous. The exhibition will also feature a selection of moving images from his films, reflecting moments in Wenders’ canon, where Polaroid cameras and still photographs form a vital part of the narrative, such as the photo-obsessed protagonist in ‘Alice in the Cities’ (1974). The Photographers' Gallery is located at 16-18 Ramillies Street, London W1F 7LW.

Beggars Banquet: Photographs by Michael Joseph

thumbnail

Beggars Banquet: Photographs by Michael Joseph is an exhibition dedicated to The Rolling Stones’ infamous photoshoot of 1968. Shot on location at the Gothic studio of Sarum Chase, Hampstead and the derelict ruins of Swarkestone in Derbyshire, Joseph’s photographs feature The Rolling Stones in an ethereal state. Elaborately staged portraits are contrasted with atmospheric shots of the band outside the barren manor house, surrounded by cattle and playing cricket in the overgrown grass. The photographer's vibrant, eccentric style is clearly displayed in this renowned series with whimsical costumes and live animals used as props throughout the shoot. At the heart of the exhibition is the medieval feast featured on the inside cover of The Stones’ 1968 album, ‘Beggars Banquet’. Characterised by its rich colours and beautiful lighting, this theatrical scene challenges traditional photography with a hazy, surreal style informed by Michael Joseph’s admiration of Dutch renaissance artists Hieronymus Bosch and Pieter Bruegel. The exhibition will be on display at Proud Chelsea (161 King’s Road, London SW3 5XP) from 6-30 July 2017.
