Livre Bingham Mine/Garfield Stack Photographs by Michael Light Located at 8,000 feet in the Oquirrh Mountains — 20 miles southwest of Salt Lake City —the Bingham Canyon copper mine is the largest man-made excavation on the planet. Its hole reaches more than half a mile deep and its rim is nearly three miles in width. It has produced more copper than any mine in history. The mine’s Garfield smelter stack, situated at the edge of the Great Salt Lake about 10 miles away, is the tallest free-standing structure west of the Mississippi River, and is only 35 feet shorter than the Empire State Building.
For the last several years, Michael Light has been photographing both settled and unsettled areas of the American West from small rented airplanes, including an amazing series of black and white images taken of the Bingham Mine and Garfield stack over the course of a sin... Exposition Season 14 Each December Stills Gallery features a show of selected Stills artists. The theme for Season 2014 is continuity and divergence. There are twelve artists with a highly diverse range of practices that reflect both the history (of the gallery and of photography itself) and the diversity with which photography has developed in unprecedented ways over the last twenty years.
Steven Lojewski’s series Populace was one of the first exhibitions at Stills when it began in 1991. These black and white images in the tradition of documentary street photography look as fresh as the day they were first seen. They are the same silver gelatin prints printed by the artist at that time. In the vein of found photographs, Ian Dodd, a generation before Lojewski, shows new unseen work (Presence) in vibrant and romantic colour after yea...

Exposition Marks of Honour A Striking Library Marks of Honour - A Striking Library
Marks of Honour is a photo book project and exhibition organised and curated by Nina Poppe and Verena Loewenhaupt.
MoH was conceived in order to reveal the inspiration that a new generation of photographers have gained from the history of photography in the form of books.
13 international photographers were invited to pay artistic tribute to a publication that has been influential to their own work.
All participating works are limited to three copies, each containing the original photo book and its accompanying homage.
The exhibiton MoH/08 displays the variety of inspirational sources and their tributes through a combination of different media.
Marks of Honour is an ongoing project that aims to create a striking library of contemporary photo books.
Catalog: books@... Exposition LE PARADIS, OU PRESQUE LOS ANGELES 1865-2008 L.A. ou si vous préférez Los Angeles, la cité des anges... et des démons. Pour quelques chanceux, L.A. est synonyme de soleil, de plage, de piscine, de corps sains et bronzés. Pour les autres, L.A. n'est souvent qu'une concentration d'autoroutes encombrées, de pollutions et de peurs de toutes sortes. C'est une ville sans centre et sans âme... Là-haut, dans les cieux, règnent les stars d'Hollywood; mais ici-bas, les habitants craignent un nouveau tremblement de terre ou le déclenchement d'émeutes. Rêve ou cauchemar? Réalité ou fiction? La vérité sur ce lieu mythique et fascinant se situe peut-être entre les deux.
Los Angeles, ville à multiples facettes, est adorée des photographes de tout... Exposition Michael Light FULL MOON California-based photographic artist Michael Light gained unprecedented access to the film masters from NASA's archive of 32,000 photographs. Light's selection of these images creates an outstanding representation of the space journeys, lunar landings and of the moon landscape, as never before seen, in images of unparalleled clarity and large scale. These large format photographs were first exhibited at Hayward Gallery in 1999, but this will be the first time they are exhibited for sale in the UK. Michael Light will attend the opening and be giving a detailed account of the first journeys into space.
Limited edition prints exhibited in the UK for the first time to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the first moon landing.

Exposition Controverses - Une histoire juridique et éthique de la photographie Depuis son invention en 1839, la photographie est au centre de nombreuses controverses et de procès retentissants. L'image se place en effet au coeur des enjeux éthiques ou strictement légaux qui ont été menés aux XIXe et XXe siècles. Symbole de liberté d'expression et de droits individuels, mais aussi de pouvoir et d'argent, la photographie est confrontée régulièrement aux autorités, à la censure ou à la manipulation. Elle a suscité dans le monde de l'art, de la politique, de la science, du journalisme, de la mode ou de la publicité des débats passionnés qui se sont souvent terminés devant les tribunaux. Une majorité des grands photographes ont été entraîné...
