Hayward Gallery reopens with the first major UK retrospective of the work of acclaimed German photographer Andreas Gursky. Known for his large-scale, often spectacular pictures that portray emblematic sites and scenes of the global economy and contemporary life, he is widely regarded as one of the most significant photographers of our time. 📷
Driven by an interest and insight into ‘the way that the world is constituted’, as well as what he describes as ‘the pure joy of seeing’, Gursky makes photographs that are not just depictions of places or situations, but reflections on the nature of image-making and the limits of human perception. Often taken from a high vantage point, these images make use of a ‘democratic’ perspective that gives equal importance to all elements of his highly detailed scenes.

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.
