There is no final understanding to be reached. Each vision, each stage of the journey brings a revelation unique to each viewer. Our perception is informed by our own lives and history, constantly changing, constantly evolving.

Working in collaboration to create captivating and mysterious landscapes, French artists Calmen & Bech consciously retain a sense of anonymity. In their alluring and atmospheric artworks an acknowledgement of time and place is not significant. Instead we are suspended in timeless space: the familiar transcends the everyday and the viewer is introduced to what they describe as 'the ends of our world.'
Firmly grounded in the strength and beauty of nature itself, the photographs of Calmen & Bech r… more

Annual showcase of recent finds and acquisitions
Dennis Stock seemed born with a capacity to spot the shot that would summarize a situation, and epitomize a person. His childlike receptivity, combined with a refined technical skill and delight in risk-taking, informs the unique composition of his images.
Ever prolific – since the 50s Stock has generated a book or an exhibition almost annually – there are nonetheless several images that have become icons of their kind. Most are portraits, of either known or unknown subjects. All are taken … more
