Photography | Helmut Newton Foundation, Berlin, Germany | Friday 4 December 2015 - Sunday 22 May 2016
The exhibition “Pages from the Glossies” offers us a new perspective on many of Helmut Newton’s iconic photographs. Spanning more than four decades, the images are presented as facsimiles of the original magazine pages in which they were first published, between 1956 and 1998. During this considerable length of time, Newton was regularly commissioned by publishers and editors from renowned magazines around the world to impart his version and vision of contemporary fashion. This continuity remained an exception in the otherwise fleeting fashion business.

Sarah Moon is a self-taught artist: On completing her art studies, she acquired her photographic skills while working as a model in haute couture. In 1968, she finally turned from acting in front the camera to taking pictures herself and was instantly successful due to the inimitable style of her photographs. That same year, she took part in a group exhibition on avant-garde fashion photography in the Galerie Delpire in Paris. This was to be the starting point for an extraordinary carrier, which culminated in the publication of Moon´s photos in leading fashion magazines like "Marie-Claire", "Elle" and "Vogue".

Photography | Panoptikon Fotografins Hus, Stockholm, Sweden | Thursday 8 October 2015 - Saturday 14 November 2015
It does not seem very daring to describe Marina Gadonneix’s pictures as being depopulated. The emptiness of the places she presents, one after another, demonstrates – if not a preliminary rule characterizing the whole series, a constant which is merely foiled by rare, always ethereal apparitions.

Photography | Fotografiska Museum, Stockholm, Sweden | Friday 2 October 2015 - Sunday 7 February 2016
A strong desire to get behind the facade, to capture the unique moment rather than confirming the received image has taken Martin Schoeller far. One of the world’s most respected portrait photographers, Schoeller’s pictures capture that which is both unique and universal for each person, whether it is Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Barack Obama, Katie Perry, Hilary Clinton, Jay Z, a female bodybuilder or someone he has met on the street.

Photography | Hamiltons Gallery, London, United-Kingdom | Friday 9 October 2015 - Saturday 14 November 2015
Olaf’s art implicitly visualises the unspoken and the overlooked. By addressing social issues and taboos within the framework of a highly stylised mode of imagery, his work provides us with uncertain, shifting narratives, which defy singular interpretation. In his own unique style and approach, Olaf vividly captures the essence of contemporary life and its inherent contradictions.
