As part of the inaugural season at The Met Breuer, the exhibition diane arbus: in the beginning will open on 12th July, featuring more than 100 photographs from one of the most influential and provocative artists of the 20th century. This landmark exhibition will highlight never-before-seen early work of Diane Arbus, focusing on the first seven years of her career, from 1956 to 1962, the period in which she developed the idiosyncratic style and approach for which she has been recognized, praised, criticised and copied the world over. "It is a rare privilege to present an exhibition this revelatory, on an artist of Arbus's stature. More than two-thirds of these works have never before been exhibited or published," said Thomas P. Campbell, Director and CEO of The Metropolitan Museum of Art. "We sincerely thank the Estate of Diane Arbus for entrusting us to show an unknown aspect of this remarkable artist's legacy with the camera." The exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue which includes two essays: "in the beginning" by Jeff L. Rosenheim and "notes from the archive" by Karan Rinaldo, Senior Research Assistant. The book is published by The Met and distributed by Yale University Press (hardcover; $50).

Sebastiao Salgado: Le Tour de France

News image

Polka Galerie (12, rue Saint-Gilles, 75003 Paris, France) will be showcasing Sebastião Salgado’s photographs of the Tour de France over the month of July. Salgado accepted Liberation’s request to shoot the event in 1986, following each stage of this famous French event to photograph the racers and the audience alike. Sometimes he would go on site way before the race, just to “watch” people. In the end, Salgado was more interested in men on the sides of the road than in the great champions of the Tour. “His innocence made him capture things on camera that we simply did not see”, says Patrick Le Roux, a journalist for Liberation. Polka Galerie will showcase eighteen of Sebastião Salgado’s pictures from 2-30 July 2016.

Into the Woods, a new exhibition by young British photographer Ellie Davies will showcase her new work from the series 'Half Light', alongside her earlier bodies of work. In 'Half Light,' Davies adds a new element – water – a dark, still river, bordered by colourful, textured riverbanks rich with vegetation. The murky water dissects each image creating a false horizon, separating the viewer from the twilight forest beyond and allowing the land to be considered from a distance. ‘Growing up in the New Forest in the south of England, I spent my childhood exploring and playing in the woods with my twin sister. In Half Light, I consider my relationship with these places, my ongoing attempt to reconnect with the wilder landscapes of my youth and to discover if those remembered and imagined places can be found and captured again.’ In addition to 'Half Light', Into The Woods will include previous bodies of work in Davies’s woodland series’ including 'Stars', 'Between The Trees', 'Islands', 'Come With Me' and 'The Gloaming'. Ellie Davies: Into The Woods will run from 21st July to 20th August 2016 at the Crane Kalman Gallery, 178 Brompton Road, London SW1 1HQ.
