Nasser’s work is part of a mixed-media exhibition at Miles End Motors in conjunction with TRUNK Gallery. The ” ‘Voyeur Nocturne’ series resulted from a 10 month long project taking the photographer to different viewpoints across the city; many of the most spectacular shots are a product of careful planning and consideration,” according to TRUNK’s website. “Reflections present both opportunity and challenge; windows aglow invite the viewer in. As evening comes and the lights go on, a routine scene quickly becomes something with character and mood.” The images were officially hung in the Olympic Village (the only photographic works selected) and received an honorable mention at the LUCIE Pilsner Urquell International Photography Awards. “Amyn believes in the photographer’s magic – the ability to stir the soul with light and shape and color,” Barry Anderson, owner of Creative Intelligence, told TRUNK. “He respects classic disciplines, is easy to work with, while

Monday evening saw the vernissage of “Something + Nothing” at Sprüth Magers London, Shore’s first solo show in the British capital for more than six years. “Taking its title from composer and philosopher John Cage’s Lecture on Something and Lecture on Nothing, a reference to the artist’s search for beauty in the everyday, the exhibition [celebrates] a career that spans over four decades,” reads a press release. The New Yorker has previously had one-man shows at the Museum of Modern Art, New York; George Eastman House, Rochester; Kunsthalle, Dusseldorf; Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; Jeu de Paume, Paris; and Art Institute of Chicago. Curated by Todd Levin, the 65 photos in “Something + Nothing” include selections from American Surfaces (1972-3) and Uncommon Places (1973-79) – both out of print, according to Shore’s website – “displayed for the first time alongside works from the recent series Abu Dhabi (2009), Israel (2010), and
“INDUSTRIA,” which includes 30 printed photographs and more than 200 projected images, will debut at the Triennale di Milano, held November 29, 2013, to January 6, 2014.

According to a press release: “With alert eyes and attention to detail, Biddau gives us a ‘behind the scenes’ look at the complex industrial machine that watches over the production of objects and manufactured articles, the pride and joy of Made in Italy.” The photographer previously won first place at the Black and White Spider Awards in Los Angeles for selections from the work.

For the past two decades, Andrew Brooks has documented distinct, oftentimes hidden elements of the English city. “There was a time when I’d been here for about seven or eight years and I thought I’d captured all of [it] – I was ready to move on,” Brooks told Greater Manchester site Mancunian Matters. “Then I had this moment where I realized it is about being more creative, it’s about looking harder and it’s about how you can see the world differently.” By Brooks’s count, he’s made another 30,000 images since then. Each picture can take a year to plan and a month to retouch, and might combine 14 frames. Brooks named Beetham Tower as his preferred structure to shoot, according to Mancunian Matters, as his photographs capture the city’s modernization mingling with its past. Selections from Brooks’s Manchester series have been displayed in New York, Amsterdam, and China. For work
The former Oasis guitarist stares at the audience from an armchair, surrounded by a pot of Yorkshire tea, mug, and plate of shortbread in the Patrice de Villiers’ exhibit at London brasserie Quaglino’s. “Love Music, Love Food” also includes a portrait of Juliette Lewis atop a pile of raspberries; an image of V V Brown nude, lest for Marmite; the Howling Bells covered in cupcakes and frosting; and Biffy Clyro posing with haggis in front of a plaid backdrop.

“Itoshima,” Juliane Eirich’s second solo show opens Friday evening at Galerie f5,6 as part of Munich’s Art Weekend. Eirich visited southern Japan in the summer of 2011, several months following the earthquake that decimated the Fukushima nuclear power plant. She documented the Itoshima region using her camera, and is also releasing an 80-page book containing her images. “The photographs that were taken during the stay in Itoshima bear names as ›Towel‹, ›Wooden House‹, ›Palm Tree‹, ›Two Houses One Car‹, ›Fly Swat‹ or ›Gas Station‹. And that’s exactly what can be seen in the pictures,” reads Peperoni Books Berlin’s website. “And yet they are puzzling images. With deserted landscapes and cityscapes, houses, trees, cars, interiors and everyday objects Juliane Eirich forms a kaleidoscope of barely interpretable impressions. It’s all about the question, how environment and nature shape the way of life and culture and how people in return shape and cultivate
The Stephen Wilkes’ images from the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy are included in “Rising Waters,” an exhibit at the Museum of the City of New York. “For me, the photographs were about depicting the scale of the hurricane,” explained Wilkes. “People heard ‘Category 1,’ and we tend to react by thinking numerically – the higher the number, the bigger the damage – but Sandy didn’t fit that criteria. In this case, perception and reality were extremely different, and I wanted to show the reality.” That meant an aerial view of the destruction. Wilkes was initially hired by TIME to cover the scene through Instagrams in Connecticut, but decided to rent a helicopter several days later and flew over Breezy Point, Far Rockaway, and Seaside Heights; the latter where the Jet Star roller coaster lay in the ocean. TIME then sent him out to Staten Island, where he shot a house

Pictures from Joel Meyerowitz’s debut book, Cape Light, will be on display in Birmingham, Alabama, as part of AMW‘s “Fine Photographs” show from October 24 to November 30. Cape Light was first published in 1979 and contains “common scenes – tiny figures on a beach, a porch railing against a storm-darkened sky, a blue raft against a summer cottage – [which] are transformed by the poignant light of [Cape Cod] and the photographer’s subtle and luminous vision,” according to Hachette. It’s now considered an influential work of color photography. AMW plans to host an opening reception on Thursday from 6 to 8 p.m. “Fine Photographs” Weekdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., October 24 to November 30 1829 29th Avenue South Birmingham, Alabama 35209 For more work by Joel on Gallery Stock click here.
Manhattan’s Clic Gallery will celebrate Fournier’s month-long show with an opening reception tonight from 6 to 8 p.m. In a press release, the photographer said, “ ‘Post Natural History’ is a collection of ‘upcoming living species’ and presented in the form of encyclopaedic boards.” Fournier’s creatures are based on recent findings in synthetic biology and represent how they’ll adapt to the earth as it continues to evolve. “We re-know a cat, a lizard, a poppy, a dragonfly but by looking closer we realize certain differences,” he continued. “The Ibis has legs in metal to resist extreme temperatures. The dragonfly possesses a transparent glass belly in which a luminescent sensor measures the rate of pollution. The Rhino beetle is provided with a GPS (Global Positioning System) integrated into its metallic antenna.” His images are part of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, set for release next year. Twenty prints from “Post Natural History”
The New Mexico-native, who was living in New York and four blocks from the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, recently mounted “A New Reality: Photographs of 9/11” at the Albuquerque Photographers Gallery. “We were all affected by these events,” O’Connell told the Albuquerque Journal. “No matter how far away we were, it was something that brought us together. These eight photographs showcase just a bit of the chaos that happened that day.” He kept his head down as he took the black-and-white images. “I was also trying to shield my cameras so they wouldn’t get damaged,” he recounted. “You could see spots on some of the photos and I think it adds another element in understanding what happened.” O’Connell experiences a swell in emotion on each anniversary of the attack and has been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder. He participates in the World Trade Center Health Program, which
When the Hiroshi Watanabe returned to Japan five years ago, he found out that Sarumawashi (monkey dancing), a childhood memory, was very much alive. Working with the Suo Sarumawashi Association, Watanabe took black-and-white portraits of the performers clad in Kimonos or jerseys, making human-like expressions and cuddling with Monchhichis. His series will be on display at Los Angeles’s Kopeikin Gallery from September 7 to October 26. Watanabe knows the photos could be polarizing, especially in the U.S., but overseas, “[t]he Europeans thought it was cute and funny and had a totally different attitude,” he said.
