Will look through some of my books for you Ian,as I tend do that first then go looking on the interent rather than the other way round. I also think a vist to the third eye gallery in Liverpool, is a good idea, either via web or actual visit. Because they have some really unusual photographers in their galleries.
Just remebered a really great current photographer that you’d like Ian His name is Ducan Caratacus Clark, he’s owner/founder of Fotografigue and is excpetional as a photographer. First came a cross him in a gallery in glasgow a few years ago. The RGI gallery is quite a small salubrious gallery and shows artists and photographers of merit. He also has exhibitions nationally and internationally and writes in ArtReview:london, which is a currents arts magazine covering all aspects of the art world. So I think he’s one chap you’d enjoy reading up on.
Don’t know how your French is but Galerie W in Paris is also another gallery to look at, they tend more towards the fine arts rather than photgraphy but occasionally have photographers. Just a thought. Meg
Thanks for your suggestions, Meg. BTW, did you mean the Open Eye Gallery in Liverpool???
‘Fraid I can’t say I was very wow-ed by Ducan Caratacus Clark, sorry. (A bit unrelentingly low contrast for my taste in BW, I fear.) Art Review looked interesting, but I couldn’t work out how to view articles; it seemed you have to subscribe and take the magazine, but I may have misunderstood how the site works.
Galerie W seemed mostly to be about art other than photography, as you said. A search on the site showed up work mainly limited to two photographers: Jérôme Pigeon and Georges Poncet (who seems to specialise in sfumato images on aluminium – seriously soft focus! Right up your street?! 😉 )
The RGI gallery looks like it’ll be useful for my Art History course, but maybe less so in my search for photography blogs.
Thanks for your time and trouble, though. As I say, your suggestions may help with my other art interests!
