The best stories are those that challenge preconceived notions about a place or an issue, that challenge stereotypes and make people rethink their view on things

Christopher Rimme

1

In an attempt to articulate the visceral potency of Christopher Rimmer’s photography, the author, Tony Park said Rimmer’s work looked so deeply into Africa’s heart that you could almost feel the heat and taste the dust.

Christopher Rimmer was born in England an emigrated to South Africa as a child. He began taking photographs as a teenager with a plastic 35mm Hanimex camera. After immigrating to Australia in 1981, he studied photography formally, firstly under Werner Hammerstingl and then later at Rusden College under Paul Green. He graduated in 1991.

His critically acclaimed photographs of Africa have been widely published in media around the world. He has exhibited in group and solo shows both in Australia and in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, South Africa & the U.S. His work is represented in several corporate and notable private collections. He obtained an Excellence accreditation in the Federation International de l’Art photographique in 2009 and platinum in 2010 and in 2012 received an Honourable Mention at the Montargis National Contest in France. He is a member of the Royal Photographic Society and was shortlisted for British magazine B&W Photographer of the Year for his work in Southern Africa in 2011 and again in 2012.

In 2014 his work ‘Sign of Life’ was screened at Visa Pour L’Image, Perpignan in France and the Ankor Photographic Festival in Cambodia.

Christopher Rimmer’s most recent work, Amapondo, photographed on the east coast of South Africa, will be exhibited throughout 2015 at Art Expo New York, Jan Royce Gallery, Cape Town, Art Room 9, Munich, Art San Diego, Spectrum Miami and Jeff Makin Gallery in Melbourne, Australia.

Art Business News Magazine nominated Christopher Rimmer Top Artist to Watch in their 2015 summer edition.

A stunning collection by a talented photographer. Prepare for a journey not just to Africa but to an oasis of balance and beauty.
Tim Butcher – Author

Rimmer’s portraits are richly layered with potent cross-cultural symbolism, a fusion of South African and Western imagery and fundamentally emotive. They are also simply stunning, peaceful, even joyful works by a masterful photographer.

I live in East Sussex although I grew up on the island of Jersey. I still retain an affinity for seascapes and coastal views even though I no longer have a beautiful beach on my back doorstep.

My approach to photography is greatly informed by my background in painting and I use in-camera multiple exposure and ICM (intentional camera movement) to blur detail and abstract shapes in the landscape.

I am driven by an exploration of colour and form. My objective is to create multi-layered images that depict the subtleties of the landscape around us. I am more concerned with portraying an interpretation rather than a literal representation of what I see before me.

I have been fortunate to have been tutored by some highly talented and inspirational professionals, most notably Jay Maisel and the time spent with him and his impressive array of guest speakers in New York continues to influence the way I approach my work.

I enjoy trying to push the boundaries of what photography is about and I strive to produce work that has movement and energy. A pivotal moment for me was coming across the work of Chris Friel and subsequently being tutored in the alternative techniques needed to produce such results by Doug Chinnery.

I have been influenced by many great talents; some of my inspirations include afore-mentioned Jay Maisel, Chris Friel and Doug Chinnery. Also Susan Burnstine, Fay Godwin, Ernst Haas, Aaron Siskind, Andre Kertesz, Vivian Maier, Sarah Moon, Arnold Newman, Klavdij Sluban, Alexey Titarenko, Charlie Waite to name just a few. Painters whose work I particularly admire include Bonnard, Cezanne, Chagall, Diebenkorn, Kandinsky, Klee, Matisse, Rothko, Van Gogh Frankethaler and many others too numerous to mention.

Philip Jones Griffiths

Image 025

 






Born in Rhuddlan, Wales, Philip Jones Griffiths studied pharmacy in Liverpool and worked in London while photographing part-time for the Manchester Guardian. In 1961 he became a full-time freelancer for the London-based Observer. He covered the Algerian War in 1962, then moved to Central Africa. From there he moved to Asia, photographing in Vietnam from 1966 to 1971.

His book on the war, Vietnam Inc., crystallized public opinion and gave form to Western misgivings about American involvement in Vietnam. One of the most detailed surveys of any conflict, Vietnam Inc. is also an in-depth document of Vietnamese culture under attack.

An associate member of Magnum since 1966, Griffiths became a member in 1971. In 1973 he covered the Yom Kippur War and then worked in Cambodia between 1973 and 1975. In 1977 he covered Asia from his base in Thailand. In 1980 Griffiths moved to New York to assume the presidency of Magnum, a post he held for a record five years.

Griffiths’ assignments, often self-engineered, took him to more than 120 countries. He continued to work for major publications such as Life and Geo on stories such as Buddhism in Cambodia, droughts in India, poverty in Texas, the re-greening of Vietnam, and the legacy of the Gulf War in Kuwait. His continued revisiting of Vietnam, examining the legacy of the war, lead to his two further books ‘Agent Orange’ and ‘Vietnam at Peace’.

Griffiths’ work reflects on the unequal relationship between technology and humanity, summed up in his book Dark Odyssey. Human foolishness always attracted Griffiths’ eye, but, faithful to the ethics of the Magnum founders, he believed in human dignity and in the capacity for improvement

Philip Jones Griffiths died at home in West London on 19th March 2008

I am a photographer based in Kent, South East England and have been passionate about my photography for most of my life now. My location in Kent, close to the coast has influenced much of my work as you will see in my galleries. I have also been fortunate enough to have travelled widely over the last twenty years to some of the planets far flung corners as well as others closer to home too. I am inspired to seek out and explore new destinations, both at home and abroad, before they change and are lost forever as our global village expands at an ever relentless pace.

My work has been published in travel brochures and can regularly be found on a number of websites including Wanderlust, Responsible Travel and the Adventure Company. I regularly exhibit at Lloyds of London for their annual art exhibition as well as other ad-hoc exhibitions and until recently I was for four years a registered artist with the Nucleus galleries in both Rochester and Maidstone . I also regularly exhibit in a number of restaurant/wine bars and cafes both in London and Kent. Please refer to the News page to find out more about current as well as upcoming exhibitions.

I am a relative newcomer to digital after using transparency (slide) film for most of my life but now I use digital almost exclusively. I shoot mostly using the RAW format as this provides more flexibility post production. I do not believe in image manipulation (except for clearly artistic projects) other than dust spot removal and any other alterations are restricted to what could be performed in a traditional darkroom ie colour saturation, contrast, and dodging and burning. I tend to prefer monochrome for most landscape work although this is not exclusive and I find monochrome does suit most portraits more so than colour. Now for the geeky bit! After lugging around a Billingham bag weighing half a ton through deserts and up mountains I’ve come to appreciate that less is more and to concentrate on getting the most out of what you have with you. I now use a Leica D-Lux 5 compact which is a marvelous piece of kit alongside a Nikon D600 with one 24-70mm F2.8 lens.

Tim Walker’s photographs have entranced the readers of Vogue, month by month, for over a decade. Extravagant staging and romantic motifs characterise his unmistakable style. After concentrating on photographic stills for 15 years, Walker is now also making moving film.

Born in England in 1970, Walker’s interest in photography began at the Condé Nast library in London where he worked on the Cecil Beaton archive for a year before university. After a three-year BA Honors degree in Photography at Exeter College of Art, Walker was awarded third prize as The Independent Young Photographer Of The Year.

Upon graduation in 1994, Walker worked as a freelance photographic assistant in London before moving to New York City as a full time assistant to Richard Avedon.

In 2010 Walker’s first short film, ‘The Lost Explorer’ was premiered at Locarno Film Festival in Switzerland and went on to win best short film at the Chicago United Film Festival, 2011.

2012 saw the opening of Walker’s ‘Story Teller’ photographic exhibition at Somerset House, London. The exhibition coincided with the publication of his book, ‘Story Teller’ published by Thames and Hudson.
