Photo Shots – Photography and Death at Photofusion with work by Andre Penteado and Joachim Froese


DETAILS in photos above from Dad’s Suicide by Andre Penteado

I went, I saw, I listened. Thanks to Photofusion, Sue Steward, Andre Penteado and Joachim Froese for a thought-provoking evening of conversation, lively discussion and viewing themed around the sensitive subject of death.

For those of you who like to look rather than read, see over for more photos. Reflections to come – I want to have a chat on the blog with Andre about his body of work Dad’s Suicide, so will leave it until then.

Photo talk and show – Photography and Death with Andre Penteado and Joachim Froese in conversation with Sue Steward

“After his suicide I felt very guilty and lonely. A sense of failure and a feeling that I could have done something to prevent what happened overtook me. I felt a lot of anger towards him as well. I couldn’t believe what he had done to himself and to all of us who loved him so much.” Andre Penteado speaking about his dad’s suicide.

If you are south London way tonight, then why not head over to Photofusion for a talk Photography & Death starting at 18.30. Independent curator and journalist Sue Steward will be in conversation with Andre Penteado and Joachim Froese The talk tonight costs £5 (£3.50 members and students).

The exhibition brings together two bodies of work, Joachim Froese, Archive and Andre Penteado’s, Dad’s Suicide, (his father took his life in 2007) both of which are concerned with the process following the death of a parent. “Taking different approaches to a very sensitive subject, the making of the projects was a type of therapy for the photographers as they dealt with the sense of loss and grief.” Check out the talk tonight, I’ll be there too, and if you can’t make the talk the exhibition runs until 18 November.

International Exposure Awards exhibition at VII Gallery in Brooklyn

blog-14.jpg

The exhibition, 31 Contemporary Photographers, represents some of the best work submitted last year for the Lens Culture International Exposure Awards. The works shown represent a broad range of genres and approaches, and the 31 winning photographers hail from 12 countries — so there is a wonderful cultural mix, as well. The exhibition is currently on display at the lovely VII Gallery in Brooklyn, New York. It runs there through September 2. It’s well worth a look.

Five of the Award-winning photographers were in New York for the pre-opening party. Pictured: Joachim Froese (Honorable Mention winner), Martine Fougeron (Grand Prize winner, Single Image category), Louisa Marie Summer (3rd Prize winner, Portfolio category), Jim Casper (Lens Culture founder), Jessica Hines (Grand Prize winner, Portfolio category), and Mary Shannon Johnstone (Honorable Mention winner).

You can see a slideshow of other images from the gallery here in Lens Culture.

Special thanks to the Awards’ sponsors: Pictopia (who provided all of the stunning, museum-quality prints), Blurb (who published the winners’ catalog), Ghost Pines (who poured some of the best tasting California wine at our exhibition in San Francisco as well as in New York), and our generous gallery partners: Gallery 291 (San Francisco), VII Gallery (Brooklyn), and Spéos Gallery (Paris).

The Lens Culture International Exposure Awards have added an exciting new category for 2011: Multimedia. Deadline for submissions is September 17, 2011. Enter your best work today!
