Degeneration
Photo exhibition by Richard Chivers. 8 – 22 December 2017. The objective of Degeneration was to take a critical look at the state of housing and regeneration in the 21st Century, and the implications and complex nuances this may have on some of the poorest in society, reliant upon social housing. Read more.
Terra Drama
Photo exhibition by Kyriakos Michailidis. 23 November – 7 December 2017. The Terra Drama project is about landscapes that surround me in terms of geographic proximity, which are not always there, waiting for my camera to capture them. They are constantly redefined, always reminding me their incomplete significance and their lack of perception, both in the “time” of the photographic time and in each new constructed present. Read more.
Connecting Flows
Photo exhibition by Domina Apostolidou. 16 – 30 November 2017. A look, a real moment with someone you know or dont know, this pecious intimacy, can be very influential to me. Being open to life. That is what motivates my work. Read more.
L’inachevé (The Unfinished)
Photo exhibition by Julien Lombardi. 8 - 22 November 2017. Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, Armenia has been making the transition between the old order and a new political project that has yet to be achieved.

The World Knows Us, Because We Kill Lions
Photo exhibition by Adrien Blondel. 1 – 15 November 2017. When out of their territories, Maasais identify each other through little details on the person, often times a bead bracelet or a missing front tooth. These serve as a form of identification, and can be seen as a beacon in a country where they find themselves the minority and see their land ownership being more and more contested. Read more.

Wuhan Boulevard

Between Dreams
Photo exhibition by Saleem Ahmed. 8 – 22 October 2017. Between Dreams is a short story about being adrift in the middle of a mirage.

No Man’s Land
Photo exhibition by Franco Sortini. 1 - 15 October 2017. The no man’s land is a portion of land not occupied or claimed by several parties that leave that area not occupied due to fears or uncertainties that would result to take possession. The term was originally used to define a contested territory or a dumping ground for waste positioned between two feuds. Read more.
System of Absurdity
Photo exhibition by Barry Falk. 23 September – 7 October 2017. This is a staged reality, a created fiction to highlight the absurdity of real events. The effect is eery: the uncanny reality of the Soviet regime enhanced by the subterranean and claustrophobic environment. These intricately set pieces occupy an interstice between the abandoned and the occupied, the past and the present, fiction and reality, fear and trauma. Read more.
So Far Away, Yet So Close
Photo exhibition by Baptiste de Ville d’Avray. 15 – 30 September 2017. The project "So Far Away, Yet So Close" brings together 7 years of exploration on a real territory, during a boom in urban development – a place that is resolutely contemporary and yet photographed in a timeless manner. Read more.
Urbanesque
Photo exhibition by Ákos Major. 8 - 22 September 2017. Read more.
1KM
Photo exhibition by Marina Caneve. 1 — 15 September 2017. The banlieues represent the urban areas created at the outskirts of major French cities in the fifties and sixties. To cope with the severe housing shortage after WWII, and to counter the informal shantytown settlements (bidonvilles) that had grown in response to this the French governments instigated the construction of large-scale housing projects, whose forms owed much to modernist architecture as espoused by Le Corbusier and CIAM: the "Grands Ensembles". Read more.
Solitary Flight
Photo exhibition by Ole Erik Løvold. 23 August – 7 September 2017. This project came about at a time in my life when I felt torn between two countries, as my time studying abroad was coming to an end. Place and identity are intricately intertwined and this conflict unsettled me: I felt like I belonged nowhere. As a way of reconciliation, I wanted to make pictures of the places which held significance to me, both as a child and an adult, in both countries. Read more.

In the Flat Field
Photo exhibition by Reinier Treur. 8 - 22 August 2017. The Netherlands and Belgium are jointly referred to as the Low Countries, the low lying delta of the Rhine, Meuse and Scheldt rivers, that all flow into the North Sea. The two countries have a lot in common - language, arts and culture, food, the flat landscape - and in fact historically were one nation for several periods of time, before eventually the Belgians separated from The Netherlands in 1830. Read more.
The Last Stand
Photo exhibition by Marc Wilson. 1 – 15 August 2017. This piece of work aims to reflect the histories and stories military conflict and the memories held in the landscape itself.

Read more.
Cinémascope
Photo exhibition by Stéphane Guillaume. 23 July – 7 August 2017. My work shows contemplative spaces that create a fictional reservoir. Human interventions, geographical signatures, architectural perturbations have produced their peculiarities; The banality absent of humanity create a diffuse tension that summons the strange. Read more.
Following Cornelius
Photo exhibition by Mitch Karunaratne. 16 – 31 July 2017. Despite the complex web of dykes and drains built to secure the land by the Dutch engineer Cornelius Vermuyden, in 1621, the land sinks slowly into the mud. Growing up, his name was memoralised everywhere - in my school’s name, in the street names, in shop names - he was the island’s hero. Read more.
The Watershed Project

Read more.
Western Dioramas
Photo exhibition by William Rugen. 16 – 30 June 2017. The project is a continuing snapshot of the American West and the space it takes up in my consciousness. The seemingly limitless physical space makes us view it as transformable, disposable and unforgettable. This leads to many interesting overlaps, both spatial and temporal. There is often a visible intersection of the past and present and a wary line where the open meets the inhabited. Read more.
Project Cleansweep
Photo exhibition by Dara McGrath. 8 – 22 June 2017. Taking its name from a Ministry of Defence report issued in 2011, that assessed the risk of residual contamination at sites in the United Kingdom used in the manufacture, storage, and disposal of chemical and biological weapons (CBW) from World War I to the present day. Read more.
Modern Ruins
Photo exhibition by Markus Lehr. 1 - 15 June 2017. “Across Western cities, there is an increasing obsession with producing manicured landscapes. Standing in contrast to these aesthetically and socially regulated spaces are the neglected sites of industrial ruins, places on the margin which accommodate transgressive and playful activities.” Read more.
An Empty Valley
Photo exhibition by Ettore Moni. 23 May – 7 June 2017. Not far from the iconic city of Carrara, in the heart of the Apuan Alps, and uncommonly for Italian expectations in this field, the history of this valley and its force break down any stereotypes about the world of marble, about quarriers and those who live there. This history merges images and imagination and results in sometimes bitter yet never banal narration, which provides an alternative, new, discouraging point of view. Read more.
Marfa
Photo exhibition by Gaëtan Rossier. 16 - 31 May 2017. Gaëtan Rossier photography is rooted in the tradition of William Eggleston, Alec Soth and Stephen Shore.

To Be On View
Photo exhibition by Markus Henttonen. 8 – 22 May 2017. In recent decades, countless of artificial "paradises" were developed around the world and their number still grows faster than ever before.

Paradise Inn
Photo exhibition by Marinos Tsagkarakis. 23 April – 7 May 2017.

Brasilia
Photo exhibition by Cyrille Weiner. 16 - 30 April 2017. Arriving in Brasilia is a strange feeling: an illusionary city that would reveal itself very slowly. From afar, the landscape is flat. Then, above the emptiness, a vibrant shape appears in the bright sun, like a giant model growing up from the ground. The vision speeding faster as the city progressively appears. Unbelievable. Read more.
No Horn Please
Photo exhibition by Gabriele Rossi. 8 – 22 April 2017. A journey to India, Punjab, to visit two cities: Amritsar and Chandigarh. The project was born with the aim to connect the place of origin of those indians who were the main characters of the photographic series «I’d give you anything to have you here» that was previously made in Italy. Read more.
Mad in USA

1969-1977
Photo exhibition by Julien Hairault. 23 March – 7 April 2017. "1969-1977" is a series that reminds us that unnecessary projects have always existed. In 1969 was built in the French department of Loiret a test strip for a new monorail that was supposed to go between Orléans and Paris. After a fews years of tests including a world speed record around 430km/h, the project was abandoned and the construction disused in 1977. Read more.
Picture of Health

Between February and June 2016 I was granted access to all areas across Northampton General Hospital, where I have worked as a nurse for over a decade. The organisation is a mid-sized district general hospital in which small miracles happen on a daily basis. It is the aim of this series to evidence chronic underfunding across the NHS, and consequently that the provision of safe care to the populace of Northamptonshire is becoming increasingly difficult. Read more.
An Aesthetic of Everyday Life
Photo exhibition by Junya Suzuki. 8 - 22 March 2017. Since ancient times, the Japanese have had a unique aesthetic sense referred to as "wabi-sabi". Generally, this style prefers the mundane over the showy, quietude over eloquence, and stillness over movement. However, almost no opportunity to hear about the style exists in modern times. As time goes by, and as people become more and more superficial, they have lost touch with their aesthetic sense. One day, I found a common point in photos I captured. That's the quietness. Read more.
America
Photo exhibition by Carl Gunhouse. 1 – 15 March 2017. Driving around America for the last six years trying to cover as much of it as I could, going from one political hotspot to the next, from the BP oil spill to Detroit, which is actively depopulating its outer neighborhoods, one thing has been clear. Politics is entertainment; politicians and the press create a constant hysteria of the now, feeding a grand worldwide Greek drama, with real people, if not our own fortunes, in the balance. Read more.
Images from Kazakhstan
Photo exhibition by Gianfranco Gallucci. 23 February - 7 March 2017. These photographs were taken in Kazakhstan on April 2014, upon an invite by the Foundation of the First President of the Republic of Kazakhstan to work on a documentary project in the South.

O. O. O.
Photo exhibition by Xavier Aragonès. 16 - 28 February 2017. Obscur. Obsolet. Oblidat. (Obscure. Obsolete. Forgotten.) During a certain period in my life, I felt the urge to visit and document all kinds of disused, shut down and derelict buildings in my homeland of Catalonia (and a few in other parts of Spain). I used to do it in quick one day trips, either alone or in the company of fellow explorers. I would get into all kinds of places: houses, factories, restaurants... Read more.
Costa
Photo exhibition by José Pedro Cortes. 8 - 22 February 2017. From the start of his artistic career as a photographer, the work of José Pedro Cortes (b. 1976) has been characterised by continual technical and aesthetic experimentation.

No One’s Land

A Raven’s Dream
Photo exhibition by Stavros Stamatiou. 23 January - 7 February 2017. Photography is my way to see the world and at the same time it is the means to speak about myself, to communicate my visions, my dreams and nightmares. Sometimes I have the feeling that photography is a way to reconstruct my lost memories. Read more.
Brabant, NL
Photo exhibition by Thieu Riemen. 16 - 31 January 2017. Brabant is a province in the south of The Netherlands. The landscape of the Netherlands is some sort of palimpsest of human actions. In this way it tells me often more about human culture than for example straight forward portraits of people can do. Landscape in my pictures is almost entirely the result of human behavior and intervention. My photography is an expression of wonder about what motives people to act as they do. Read more.
Ocean Beach
Photo exhibition by Douglas Ljungkvist. 8 - 22 January 2017.

Sed (Thirsty)
Photo exhibition by Alex Muriana. 1 - 15 January 2017. "Sed" invites reflection and dialogue between the landscape and the viewer.

Cruise
Photo exhibition by Chris Round. 16 - 31 December 2016. The huge social and economic change that has swept across China in recent decades has brought with it the demand for new vacation experiences.

As well as being a status symbol, cruise holidays are a chance to escape the frenzy of everyday life and the polluted skies of the cities. Read more.
Whyalla
Photo exhibition by Chris Round. 1 - 15 December 2016. Whyalla, on the red-earthed Eyre peninsular of South Australia, is home to iron ore deposits, processing plants and steelworks. These images were taken around the ore processing pant while on an advertising assignment for BIS Industries. The rusty coloured iron ore mill and the red ore-dust, that has stained its surroundings, dominate the landscape. It is both haunting and beautiful, an alien landscape that's hot and dry with stark, industrial architecture, and piles of red earth. Read more.
Stadiums
Photo exhibition by Benoît Chailleux. 16 - 30 November 2016. A sports field is a standardized space with precise borders, a suitable coating, regulatory dimensions...

Nothing looks more like a football field than another football field. Read more.
What’s Left

Not In Your Face
Photo exhibition by Susan Barnett. 16 - 31 October 2016. In the series "Not In Your Face" the t-shirt is starkly evident, but these photographs are not about the t-shirt per se. They are about identity, validation and perception. Each one of these people reveal a part of themselves that advertise their hopes, ideals, likes, dislikes, political views, and personal mantras. Read more.
Where Are We Now?
Photo exhibition by Isa Gelb. 1 - 15 October 2016. Those photographs have been taken in different places: in my neighborhood, at the countryside, at races, in Lisbon, in Paris, hence the name of « Where Are We Now » to present them all together. Read more.

The Summer of Winter
Photo exhibition by José De Almeida. 1 - 15 August 2016. In Summer time, at Costa da Caparica, Portugal, beaches there are packed up parking lots, vehicles parked on the curbs, weekend traffic jams and the air is filled with a dust that has as the sole purpose to cover up everything. Read more.
No Destination
Photo exhibition by Tolo Parra. 16 - 31 July 2016. No destination has been developed in those spaces, highways, parking, yards, old factories, or service roads; time there seems to remain silent after an aesthetic and purely emotional resource: melancholy and decadence of a society riding without direction nor end to the encounter of an unachievable progress. Read more.
Suburbia Mexicana: Urban Holes
Photo exhibition by Alejandro Cartagena. 16 - 30 June 2016. I am looking for places that conserve a trace of the demolished architectural structure that in a sense speak of the political-economical situation of a country that is finding a way to inject its economy by turning its back to growing centrally and promoting and subsidizing the mass construction of housing complexes in the out skirts of the metropolitan area. Read more.
Suburbia Mexicana: Fragmented Cities
Photo exhibition by Alejandro Cartagena. 1 - 15 June 2016. The different aspects of Suburbia Mexicana propose alternate narratives, which depict a global issue from a local perspective. i feel that my commitment as a photographer is not to denounce our need for a household, but rather to point out the struggle we face following the ideals of a capitalistic system while striving for fairer cities in which to live. Read more.
Fifty High Seasons
Photo exhibition by Shane Lynam. 16 - 31 May 2016. In 1963 President de Gaulle initiated a grand project, known as "La Mission Racine", to develop a stretch of French coastline between Montpellier and Perpignan into a series of coastal resorts. Read more.
Posto de Trabalho
Photo exhibition by Valter Vinagre. 1 - 15 May 2016.
