In Black & White:
The Power of the Monochrome Image

We highlight five key exhibitions that highlight how contemporary photographers continue to explore the beauty and power of black and white images.

Self Reflection:
Henriette Sabroe Ebbesen

Submerged tulips. Distorted bodies. Underwater fruits. These are the visual motifs of Henriette Sabroe Ebbesen’s latest monograph with Disko Bay.

Environmental Introspection

Svante Gullichsen, Joanne Vestey and Alnis Stakl explore the links between humanity and nature at Albumen Gallery, as part of Photo London 2024.

Sculptures from the Art Prize

Serene monuments. Figurative works. Innovative shapes. We’re bringing you 10 sculptors from our Art Prize known for their evocative and dynamic pieces.

Materiality and Abstraction

Mallorca-born abstract artist Alejandro Javaloyas is based in Toulouse. He employs a minimalist approach to delve into the sculptural potential of a painting surface, and utilises veneered plywood as a canvas as well as an integral part of creative expression.

Reviving Waste

Sabrina Ratté’s ‘Inflorescences’ breathe new life into discarded electronic devices by presenting them as organic creatures in this mesmerising installation.

From Sebastian Sabal-Bruce’s evocative urban landscapes, to Gabriel Moses’ visceral portraiture, we outline our five top reads for the season.
