The Female Gaze at Getty Images Gallery until 14 March 2018

2017 was the Year of Women: it began with massive women’s marches in the US and ended with a series of high-profile resignations by powerful men over sexual harassment scandals. 🙎 👀

This groundswell of feminism may have erupted in response to current events, but it has also been slowly and steadily growing for decades. Over the past five years, female photographers have actively sought to redefine the manner and styles in which women are visually represented across advertising, film, and other media.

In response to this change, Getty Images has recruited a new generation of image makers and partnered with a number of organizations such as LeanIn.org, Refinery 29, and Muslim Girl to expand and evolve the photographic landscape.

McCain is celebrating the diversity of British families in a snapshot display which showcases the reality of family life in 2017. 👪👨‍👦

The pop-up display, which features a melting pot of families from across Britain, celebrates some of the unique setups that exist today from multi-generational living, to single parents and traditional family units across varying demographics, age ranges and ethnicities.

The exhibition aims to address the misrepresentation of real families in today’s society. No filters, no stereotypes, just the joyful reality of families shot in and around mealtimes. No matter how diverse the families of today may be, uniting over food is the one thing they all have in common.

Discover a collection of stunning family portraits shot by renowned photographer, Siân Davey, who travelled the UK to capture intimate photography of British families and their individual stories.

Luscious, playful, fetishised: Food for being looked at considers the history of food through its image culture. Images of food, from preparation to the final dish, are shared and ‘consumed’ widely across print and digital media. They are used to reinforce a diversity of lifestyles, an aesthetic understanding, or a moral pledge through their voyeuristic composition and distribution. This project selects several culinary themes and traces their elevation into symbols of consumer identities through cookbooks, magazines, blogs on foodporn or cookery videos showing how to prepare mouthwatering feasts.

Made You Look: Dandyism and Black Masculinity @ The Photographers’ Gallery / until 25th September 2016

TIME AND PLACE:

Doors: 10am–6pm (Thu until 8pm, Sun from 11:30am)

@ The Photographers’ Gallery, 16-18 Ramillies Street, London W1F 7LW

Tickets: £3 free before 12pm

www.thephotographersgallery.org.uk

From studio portraiture to street photography, this exhibition brings together a group of geographically and historically diverse photographers whose imagery explores black masculinity as performance, as play, as invention – in particular through the adoption of a dandy-esque persona.

In the early 21st century, black men are among the most influential trendsetters in fashion, music and global style culture. Yet high visibility for black men is matched by high vulnerability – as illustrated by disproportionate rates of arrest and incarceration for black men in the UK and USA.

Made You Look explores dandyism as radical personal politics, a willed flamboyance that flies in the face of conventional constructions of the black masculine. It proposes that the black ‘dandy’, with his extravagant emphasis on dress foregrounds a hyper-visible identity which counters the heighted vulnerability, the result of a charged history of objectification. In the context of this exhibition, dandyism isn’t simply about sharp dressing but rather, consciously problematising ideas of male identity through dress or deportment that is arresting, provocative, louche, camp and gloriously assertive.

The exhibition is curated by Ekow Eshun and features works from the Larry Dunstan Archive, Liz Johnson Artur, Samuel Fosso, Hassan Hajjaj , Colin Jones, Isaac Julien, Kristin-Lee Moolman, Jeffrey Henson Scales and Malick Sidibé.
