Discover a collection of photographs, which were taken between the years 1940-2000 by a German-Jewish woman who immigrated to the United Kingdom prior to the outbreak of World War II.

The viewer enters the room and takes a route following the decades in which the photographs had been taken. Only at the end of the route can the viewer discover that the photographs were actually taken recently, by the artist Tali Amitai-Tabib, which is a relative of Trudl and were manipulated by an image processing software to make them appear to be older.

Mark Vessey blurs the lines between photographer and contemporary artist. Heavily influenced by Pop American culture, with Warhol and Haring particular heroes, Vessey uses his lens much as a painter uses his brushes, using light, colour and focus to produce his stunning and uniquely popular images.

CRANE KALMAN BRIGHTON

The vividly coloured almost hyperreal imagery of Karine Laval’s “Heterotopia” results in a dreamlike exposure to the natural world. Laval used this approach during the global pandemic that shuttered the worldwide population indoors, as she presents her new project, Quarantine.
