New Photography in Britain is dedicated to seventeen emerging English photographers.
This publication was created in collaboration with the Royal College of Art in London and explores three main topics: the artist world, their personal feelings towards their world, and their relationship with the world around them.
The artists included in this book—many of whom have shown their work in important galleries such as Victoria Miro or Maureen Paley, as well as in the
collections of the Saatchi Gallery and the Tate Modern—are Lucy Levene, Lisa Castagner, Sarah Pickering, Anne Hardy, Esther Teichmann, Gareth McConnell, Melissa Moore, Suzanne Mooney, Harold Offeh, Sophie Rickett, Annabel Elgar, Danny Treacy, Kirk Palmer, Becky Beasley, Bianca Brunner, Simon Cunningham, and Heiko Tieman.
Although it is hard to pin down a dominant current or trend that characterises all the works on show, all the artists present in the exhibition share a strong sense of interaction with the world around them. Not content with merely representing it, in a certain sense they act as a sort of filter, giving it a new and personal interpretation, transforming, inventing and putting together the pieces of a tangible reality, or providing a first person account (in some cases featuring directly as protagonists of the works) of their own relationship with life and society at large.
Despite dealing with personal experiences, in many cases very different from one another, there is a shared sense of melancholy, one of the here and now needing to be lived to the full, faced with eyes wide open and then pieced back together through their images. Another feature common to many of their works is their reconstruction of precise situations in which the photographic act defines and redraws the lines and proportions of a new sense of reality, one made up of intimate relationships, multiple meanings that the photographer tries to put across through a pondered and selective gaze.
