Photography comes home Somerset House has form. It has witnessed the intrigues of Tudor Kings and Queens, the machinations of the Navy Board (at the height of British Sea Power), the debates of countless learned societies including the Royal Society and, in our own times, the dark arts of the Inland Revenue. It was here, at a meeting of the Royal Society on 14 March 1839, that the Astronomer Royal, Sir John F. W. Herschel, coined the word ‘photography’. And so, now, 176 years after Herschel coined ‘photography’ we bring Photo London to Somerset House where we hope to become a fixture. Our vision is to create an outstanding international photography fair and, in so doing, spark an annual weeklong, city-wide celebration of photography. In May each year, the world will come to London to discover the best photography on the planet. So this first edition is both a beginning and a kind of homecoming. The response from galleries around the world has been phenomenal and, thanks to the support of the LUMA Foundation and FTWeekend, we have been able to create a vibrant public programme featuring three important exhibitions, as well as a collaborative installation between the London-based artist Rut Blees Luxemburg and Nuno Ricou Salgado and his team from Procur.arte in Lisbon. In addition, Francis Hodgson has curated a programme of talks, lectures and presentations. And then, as each night falls, the subterranean vaults beneath the Courtyard will be filled with music and photography. And finally, there’s the City itself. If this is a homecoming then the response of London’s great museums, auction houses and galleries illustrates the extent to which photography has been missed.There are too many people to mention here, but the close collaborations with so many of London’s institutions, particularly the Courtauld Institute, the V&A and the National Portrait Gallery have been truly remarkable. Enjoy this catalogue. Enjoy Photo London. We look forward to seeing you again in May 2016. Michael Benson and Fariba Farshad Directors of Photo London 5
LUMA Foundation The LUMA Foundation is pleased to support the public programme of Photo London and join other institutions in the city-wide celebration of photography. The LUMA Foundation was established in 2004 by Maja Hoffmann to support the activities of independent artists and pioneers, as well as institutions working in the fields of art and photography, publishing, documentary and multimedia.The Foundation specialises in challenging artistic projects combining a particular interest in environmental issues, human rights, education and culture in the broadest sense. The LUMA Foundation and LUMA Arles, the executive entity founded in 2014 in support of the project in Arles, are currently developing an experimental cultural centre in the Parc des Ateliers in the city of Arles, France, working with a core group of artistic advisors and the architects Frank Gehry and Annabelle Selldorf. This ambitious project envisions an interdisciplinary centre dedicated to the production of exhibitions and ideas, research, education and archives, and is supported by a growing number of public and private partnerships. The LUMA Foundation has also supported the International Photography Festival Les Rencontres dâ€™Arles since 2002, in particular, the Discovery Award.
FT Weekend FT Weekend is delighted to begin its partnership with Photo London. This year sees FT Weekend celebrate its 30th Anniversary, and Photo London will be forming a part of this celebratory year. For the past three decades, FT Weekend has continuously evolved and now includes the award-winning titles; How To Spend It, FT Weekend Magazine; a greatly expanded House and Home section, Life and Arts and FT Money. Last year saw the launch of the FT Weekend app giving readers a beautifully designed way to enjoy coverage wherever they are. You can find it at app.ft.com/weekend. FT Weekend brings art and culture to life through intelligent and thought-provoking coverage. From exhibition reviews to articles and interviews, there is something to delight and inspire all our readers.
Past, present and future Each edition of Photo London will feature awards that mark outstanding achievement and potential. Sebastião Salgado has been described as a photographer of vast compassion, intelligence and unyielding curiosity. He seeks not only to see but to understand through seeing. For the last 40 years he has travelled incessantly, chronicling many major events of our recent history; international conflicts, starvation and exodus. Most recently, for his monumental Genesis series, he has journeyed to the planet’s remaining wildernesses and brought back a mighty hymn to these pristine territories. Sebastião Salgado is an artist worthy of our highest admiration for his unparalleled eye-opening work and we are delighted that he has agreed to become the first Photo London Master of Photography. We aim to make Photo London a launch pad for photographers at the beginning of their careers. Participating galleries are invited to include emerging photographers alongside masters, and we have three major awards for young photographers. The John Kobal Foundation Award will be presented to the most outstanding emerging photographer to be shown at Photo London. The successful photographer will be invited to complete a two-month residency in New York run by Residency Unlimited. The Magnum Photos Graduate Photographers Award is a new opportunity for nominated graduates from UK undergraduate courses in photography or lens-based media to win mentoring from a Magnum photographer, and a portfolio review event with the award’s high-level nomination panel.The work of the ten winning nominees will be showcased in a slideshow at Photo London. The Metro Imaging Photo London Award will offer an emerging photographer a twelve-month tailored mentorship programme, based in London. In addition, Photo London is proud to host the winners of the LensCulture Exposure Awards. 8

Royal College of Art A Conversation at the Edge of an Object – Work from the Royal College of Art’s MA Photography Alumni. We understand photography as a discourse that encompasses multiple practices. This disregard for a fixed essence is photography’s strength: no aesthetic purity but a range of rhetorical forms used for the creation of fact, fiction and fantasy. Whether still or moving, analogue or digital, the photographic image is for us a visual form that aims to be thoughtful as well as playful: an allegorical and thoroughly visual form. Works selected by our guest curator for Photo London were made between 2010 to 2014. They are indicative of the practices our students develop on our MA course.

School Gallery / Olivier Castaing Director: Olivier Castaing Founded: 1988 School Gallery currently presents its eighth annual programme. This gallery aims to be a place of discovered works and to promote contemporary art in all its forms, with important presentations of French and international photographers. Photography occupies a very particular place in the gallery programme. The gallery will premiere a set of photographs taken during the events in Londonderry (1969) from the Gilles Caron estate. Gilles Caron very quickly became an iconic figure for journalists, a symbol for aid workers, a standard-bearer for reporters who risked their lives testifying to the horror and the beauty of the world, and a myth for all those who, consciously or otherwise, dreamed of taking the same perilous path.

PUBLIC PROGRAMME The Duke’s Delight
The public programme is the beating heart of Photo London. With the generous support of the LUMA Foundation, we have sought to create a vibrant photography programme that fits perfectly, if occasionally somewhat rambunctiously, with the architectural splendours that surround it. It is perhaps the kind of thing of which Edward Seymour (first Duke of Somerset) would be thrilled to see in his former home. Visitors arriving from the Strand will be greeted by The Teaser, a public lightbox installation in the Courtyard produced by Rut Blees Luxemburg in collaboration with Alexander García Düttmann and Nuno Ricou Salgado. Depending on precisely when you arrive you may, or may not, find actors declaiming passages from The Academic Year, the novel from which the work derives. Those coming from the Embankment will discover our three specially commissioned exhibitions. Beneath the Surface, 128 rarely-shown photographic works from the Victoria and Albert Museum’s Photographs Collection (a show so impressive that the team at Somerset House asked to keep it until late August). Then there are previously unseen large-format platinum prints from Sebastião Salgado’s Genesis series; and, finally, the first UK exhibition of Iranian photographer Kaveh Golestan’s Prostitute curated by Vali Mahlouji. Programmed in spaces ranging from cafés to lecture theatres around the site and beyond, Photo London’s lively talks and lectures programme, curated by Professor Francis Hodgson, will feature some two dozen of the world’s finest photographers, including: Don McCullin, Sebastião Salgado, Susan Derges, Todd Hido, Mitch Epstein, LaToya Ruby Frazier, Rankin and Stephen Shore. The programme will also carry a special focus on collecting photography and the issues surrounding it, whether for the individual collector, corporations or major cultural institutions. And then, as night falls, Photo London goes underground. The eerie caverns of the Deadhouse will be filled with projections of documentary photographs from the worlds of disco, reggae, dancehall, and grime accompanied by live DJ sets. Edward Seymour and his Tudor chums would, you feel, have dined heartily on the feast of photography set before them.
Music and Photography
During Photo London four evening events will take place in the subterranean Deadhouse situated directly beneath the Courtyard of Somerset House, combining music with photography. We have invited some of London’s key contemporary music figures to host takeovers in the space. For the opening night, YOYO founders Seb Chew and Leo Greenslade will be DJ’ing and presenting a series of photographs from their extensive archive of parties around the world. The following night we have JustJam, the brainchild of London photographers Tim & Barry, who will be streaming live online from the 184
event and displaying a selection of their extensive back catalogue of images. On Saturday, Rinse FM will be providing DJs to accompany the iconic imagery of Disco photographer Bill Bernstein. The Photo London closing party on Sunday will feature music from Don Letts and Earl Gateshead, with foundation reggae photography from Beth Lesser.

Sohei Nishino CITIES
Nishino’s large-scale dioramas are the result of an elaborate process. For each intricate project, Nishino photographs a city from every possible angle over the course ofseveral months.Thousands ofexposures are assembled into a diorama that forms a dense and compacted photographic map ofthe city. Frame by frame the photographer works through the city’s streets, meticulously producing a collage that is a journey of its own. As a new Goliga edition (cities.goliga.com), Nishino’s diorama of London will be produced as an oversized print.
A special installation ofthe print will be presented as part of Photo London.The London diorama will be sectioned and divided into approximately 1,000 prints, each measuring 10 ×16 cm. Participants can choose to purchase 10 of these prints to be housed in a custom-made box. Each of the prints is unique so as sections ofthe diorama are selected, they are removed from the installation.

Photo London Talks Francis Hodgson
Often it seems analysts can say anything they like about photographs, painting them over in the colours of their own theoretical positions. Poor mute photographs, I sometimes feel, as another ream of unreadable paper settles about them. Yet photographs arenâ€™t mute by any means; and we all live in the world photographs have made. Photography is hugely influential in every sector; it has been for generations. One (brilliant) recent book is simply titled Photography Changes Everything. To treat it either as marginal or as an empty bucket into which to pour theories developed elsewhere is to miss its real importance. The talks programme for the inaugural Photo London of 2015 was devised with those ideas in mind. Consciously anchored in the practical experience of the people who make photography and do stuff with it, the talks are intended above all to allow interested audiences to share in plain language what the speakers have gained from experience. We have grouped our speakers in companionable pairs or trios deliberately to challenge each other. Our invitation to them is to articulate the habits of mind which perhaps they take for granted. To our public, we extend the invitation to be entertained in all seriousness. Neither lectures nor seminars, we have opened real conversations on photography to a wider audience. We have divided our proceedings in two main strands. The first, naturally enough in the context of the inaugural Photo London, is a wide-ranging overview of collecting, with contributions from curators and collectors, publishers and artists, critics and historians. Elsewhere, we have a strand devoted more simply to the photographers, to give them the platform they so obviously deserve. Partnered with a number of institutions beyond the fair that are using the opportunity to arrange talks on photography of their own, we have given London a theme for a week in May. 186
Most talks are open to all; they will be individually recorded and circulated as appropriate after the fair has closed. Contributions will come from Susan Derges, SebastiĂŁo Salgado, Bill Ewing, Colin Ford, Ori Gersht, Stephen Gill, Todd Hido, Tom Hunter, Idris Khan, Tim Marlow, Rankin, Don McCullin and Nadav Kander among others.

Rut Blees Luxemburg The Teaser In collaboration with Alexander García Düttmann and Nuno Ricou Salgado
Arranged around the public Courtyard of Somerset House, Photo London has commissioned Rut Blees Luxemburg to present a lightbox project consisting of 10 lightbox cubes and 10 framed lights to show photographs that reveal an urban ‘love story’ overlayed with text by philosopher Alexander García Düttmann. From 12 – 4 pm on Saturday 23 May, the installation will become the set for a performance reading of Blees Luxemburg's and García Düttmann’s collaborative publication The Academic Year, in association with SPBH Editions. The outdoor lightboxes form part of a European outdoor art project by Procur.arte, a cultural association based in Lisbon. Since 2005, Procur.arte has worked towards the development, dissemination and creation of projects, particularly in the visual, performing and public arts, that allow audiences to reflect on the contemporary world. The Teaser is part of Procur.arte’s Flâneur Project, which explores representations of urban life through the eyes of commissioned photographers, presenting their work in public spaces. The photographers are encouraged to create work that gives a fresh take on the dynamics of cities and their geographic and social landscapes. ‘The photographer is an armed version of the solitary walker reconnoitering, stalking, cruising the urban inferno, the voyeuristic stroller who discovers the city as a landscape of voluptuous extremes. Adept of the joys of watching, connoisseur of empathy, the flâneur finds the world ‘picturesque’.’ On Photography, Susan Sontag
BENEATH THE SURFACE Photographs from the V&A collection Martin Roth, Director Victoria and Albert Museum, London
The Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) started collecting photographs when it opened in 1852, and when photography was a little over ten years old. More than 160 years have passed, and in that time the Museumâ€™s collection has grown in parallel with the medium to become one of the largest and most important in the world. It is international in scope and covers the entire history of photography from 1839 to the present. Photography is now a vital and thriving medium. The scale and number of photographic exhibitions, books, galleries, fairs, writers, specialised curators, museum collections, private collections and practitioners grows each year. This exhibition of photographs from the V&Aâ€™s remarkable collection forms a central part of the programme of Photo London at Somerset House. It includes several that have never, or rarely, been exhibited before. It is wonderful to see this extraordinary group of photographs in new surroundings and alongside works brought to Photo London by exhibitors from around the world. The exhibition remains until 24 August at Somerset House after the fair closes, allowing more visitors more time to enjoy it. I would like to thank the organisers of Photo London, Somerset House and other generous V&A benefactors for their support in making this collaboration possible.

Beneath the Surface Martin Barnes, Senior Curator, Photographs Victoria and Albert Museum, London
This exhibition is a cross-section from the V&A’s Photographs Collection, like a geological sample, examining the substance below the most visible layer. It delves into the collection’s depths, mostly bypassing the more familiar. The title Beneath the Surface guides a selection that is both a physical unearthing of collection items and a presentation of images that resonate visually or metaphorically with the theme. Since the exhibition celebrates the opening of Photo London there is also an appropriate concentration of images made in the city. Ranging from 19th century amateurs to well-known contemporary artists, all the photographers highlighted here share a fascination for things that are overlooked, hidden, or now vanished. Within the V&A collection, there are many justly famous, instantly recognisable and frequently exhibited works by the major names in photography. But there are also numerous little-known gems that now take centre stage in this exhibition, further revealing the collection’s richness and diversity. With such historic scope – numbering millions of photographs across various departments – it is inevitable that some images have not been exhibited in a lifetime, and others never shown at all. This is not the result of deliberate neglect, but the effect of combined circumstances. The sheer number of photographs means that each must wait its turn for exhibition in a limited share of Museum space. The history of photography is being continually reassessed and items rise and fall over the years in their relevance and popularity with scholars, curators and the public. Photographic prints and books have always been available to view in the V&A’s Prints & Drawings Study Room and National Art Library, and exhibiting them in gallery spaces has not often been the primary method of access. Some items have suffered over time and needed conservation treatment to make them presentable now. So these photographs have not exactly been hidden, merely waiting patiently for the right opportunity for public show. Some of the photographic prints in Beneath the Surface have not been exhibited since their creation in the 19th century. Others have not yet been shown because they have only very recently been made and added to the collection. Some particularly satisfying discoveries have been the images of long-lost London sites made by William Strudwick in the 1860s and by Benjamin Stone in the early 1900s. With the gallery at Somerset House situated on the banks of the Thames, Victor Prout’s journey in panoramic photographs along the river from Westminster to Oxford in 1862 makes a fitting geographic connection with the theme as well as the site of the exhibition. The humble and overlooked details of London’s characterful 191
streets are the subject of both Robert Brownjohn and John Gay’s works made in the 1960s, while Thurston Hopkins’ images of the same period revel in its nightlife. More recently, Rut Blees Luxemburg and Stephen Gill observe the city’s underbelly with forensic or mythical inflections. Water is a recurring motif throughout, its ever-changing surface suggesting the intricacies below, and depicted with lyricism by David Kronig, Elizabeth Williams and Susan Derges. In the works of Floris Neusüss and Donald Woodman, the human form is submerged in water, while in the pieces by Ackroyd & Harvey, Pedro Meyer and Robert Heinecken figures emerge from organic growth, patina, decay and the lapses of time. Henry Irving’s pairings of trees photographed from the same standpoint in both summer and winter reveal the structure of branches as well as the passage of the year. Records of archaeological excavation, former civilisations and the perpetually changing cityscape can be seen here too in works by Francis Bedford, Jane Dixon or Naoya Hatakeyama, and in the photographs of the Colosseum and the Temple of Vesta in Rome, made in the 1860s by an as yet unidentified photographer whose enormous prints are an impressive achievement for the period. The Museum itself – its backstage processes and sites of preservation that are not usually foregrounded – are revealed in Charles Thurston Thompson, Sinje Dillenkofer and Nigel Shafran’s photographs. The processes of photography are well suited to unveil more than first meets the unaided human eye. In photographs, time and experience can be distilled, through careful editing and sequences, double exposures, digital manipulation and other experimental adaptations. Details, movement and atmosphere that would normally be ungraspable can become enduring and vivid through the lens. However, it is not primarily through equipment or technique, but rather through the skilfully trained eye and receptive curiosity of the photographer, that a sense of revelation becomes possible. It is hoped that this eclectic mix of photographs dealing with what lurks beneath surface appearances will sharpen attention to what often lies hidden, even in plain sight.
Exhibition curated by Martin Barnes, with grateful acknowledgement for the invaluable collaboration of V&A Curator of Photographs, Susanna Brown and Assistant Curator, Hinde Haest. This exhibition would not have been possible without the support of the LUMA Foundation, the Pictet Group, Candlestar and The Stanley Foundation. 192
Rut Blees Luxemburg Nach Innen / In Deeper, 1999 C--print 1500 1800 mm
The title of this photograph of steps leading down to the river Thames is based on a quote by Roland Barthes: ‘To get out, go in deeper.’ Luxemburg is known for nocturnal urban images with long exposure times capturing the city in the eerie glow of streetlights. Instead of describing actual locations, her photographs evoke psychological and mythical spaces filled with reflection, traces and reverie. Footprints visible on the steps lead down and back again, a symbol for the starting or finishing point of a journey – or the act of disappearance and reappearance. 193

Nigel Shafran Series: Ten Photographs taken for the V&A Annual Report 2012/13, printed 2014 Digital inkjet print 508 677 mm
The Victoria and Albert Museum commissioned Nigel Shafran to take a series of photographs for the V&A’s Annual Report. Navigating between the galleries, study rooms, service areas, offices and stores of the museum he developed an archaeology of the building showing the traces of its human use. Whether made in public spaces or behind the scenes, his quietly attentive photographs unveil the sculptural qualities of the everyday, and offer a candid representation of the museum’s working life. 195
William Strudwick Almonry, Westminster Abbey, about 1866 Albumen print 282 î€ł 240 mm
In the late 1860s, Henry Cole, founding Director of the V&A, encouraged the purchase of a series of photographs titled Old London: Views by W. Strudwick. Strudwick acted as a photographic storekeeper at the Museum, but also worked as a draftsman, architect, sculptor and poet. His series documents a wide variety of subjects all over London, including the medieval coaching inns prior to their demolition to make way for the railways, and the riverside shortly before the construction of the Embankment. Strudwickâ€™s project echoes other similar survey initiatives at this time, which recognised photography as the quintessential medium to save from oblivion what was about to disappear. 197

Robert Brownjohn Series: Street Level, 1961 Gelatin silver prints All approximately 240 î€ł 160 mm 200
Robert Brownjohn Series: Street Level, 1961 Gelatin silver prints All approximately 240 160 mm
In the course of a single day Robert Brownjohn accumulated 137 photographs of London street signs. Their vernacular urban typography inspired his own practice as a designer and filmmaker. The images were published in the magazine Typographica in 1961 as the picture story ‘Street-Level’, with an introduction by Brownjohn, who wrote: ‘They show what weather, wit, accident, lack of judgment, bad taste, bad spelling, necessity and good loud repetition can do to put a sort of music into the streets where we walk.’ 201
Benjamin Stone Prison Yard, Newgate Prison, 1902 Platinum print 155 î€ł 203 mm 202
Benjamin Stone Graveyard, Newgate Prison, 1902 Platinum print 155 î€ł 203 mm
In their quest to record Britainâ€™s heritage, the members of the National Photographic Record and Survey Association did not hesitate to include more sinister subjects. Benjamin Stone and George Scamell photographed the desolate Newgate Prison in the year it closed down, two years before its demolition. It had been considered the cradle of female prison reform since the visit of philanthropist Elizabeth Fry in 1813. The images are part of the National Photographic Record archive, initiated by Stone in 1897 and comprising over 5,000 prints. 203
Jane Dixon Regeneration II (Chicago), 2007 Photo--etching 405 585 mm 204
For her Regeneration series (2006–10) Dixon visited cities which had been rebuilt after destruction. This photographic etching is based on the artist’s own manipulated photograph of present-day Chicago, which was ravaged by fire in 1871. The corrosive effect of the acid during the etching process has abstracted the descriptive qualities of the original photograph. Stripping the surface of its layers, Dixon’s methods resemble those of archaeology and forensics. Both figuratively and in a literal sense, her etchings are concerned with the disappearance and replacement of physical structures and with lost and found space.
Naoya Hatakeyama Tunnel #4910 Series: Underground, 1999 C--print 485 î€ł 485 mm
This underground picture turns a darkened sewage tunnel in Shibuya, Japan into a sublime landscape of architectural decay. A fraction of the structure is lit by a light on a tripod, revealing a crumbling cement ceiling. The photographer used a fifteen--minute long exposure time to allow for the gloomy conditions and also to give the piece a contemplative quality that enhances the grandeur of the site. 205
David Kronig The Face of the Water, 1959 – 64 Gelatin silver prints All approximately 243 194 mm 206
Kronig tested his book design for The Face of the Water by creating a full--scale dummy. Although it was never published, the mock--up allows an insight into his creative process. Kronig’s desire to ‘make still images move’ is reflected in his studies of the water surface. Meandering across the pages, his photographs suggest fluidity through careful sequencing. They were taken where the river Arve joins the Rhône near Geneva, where Kronig lived from 1959 to 1964.
Harold Eugene Edgerton Marine Organisms, Shadowgraph of a Shrimp, 1978 printed 1982 C--print 269 204 mm 208
Edgerton was an electrical engineer and began to take photographs as scientific experiments. To do this he invented the stroboscope, which allowed him to take split--second pictures of objects in motion, which could not be seen by the human eye. For this ‘camera-less’ shadowgraph, he shone light through fluid, projecting the shadow of a nearly transparent shrimp and a starfish directly on the light sensitive photographic surface.
Stephen Gill Series: Talking to Ants, 2009 –13 Pigment print 1016 1016 mm
Gill sourced objects and creatures from the streets of East London for this series. He placed them directly into the body of his camera, exposing the film and material simultaneously. He explains: ‘I hoped through this method to encourage the spirit of the place to clamber aboard the images and be encapsulated in the film emulsion, like objects embedded in amber. My aim was to evoke the feeling of the area at the same time as describing its appearance as the subject was both in front and behind the camera lens at the same moment.’ 209
Henry Irving Gingko Tree – Kew – November, Bromley, Kent Gingko (Maidenhair) Tree – Kew – July, Bromley, Kent, about 1900 Platinum prints Approximately 240 180 mm 210
Henry Irving Acacia – Kew – November, Bromley, Kent Acacia, Bromley, Kent Elm – Bromley Common – February, Bromley, Kent, about 1900 Platinum prints Approximately 240 180 mm
Despite its remarkable and consistent quality, Irving’s work has long gone unnoticed. He mastered complex photographic processes such as platinum printing, and worked methodically on large series of images showing botanical specimens from Bromley, Horley and London’s Kew Gardens. His photographs were exhibited during his lifetime at the Royal Photographic Society and used as illustrations for a number of publications, including Flowers and Plants for Designers and Schools (1907), Trees and their Life Histories (1909) and How to Know the Trees (1911). 211
Floris NeusĂźss Untitled, 1958 Gelatin silver print 395 î€ł 278 mm 212
NeusĂźss has dedicated his career to experimenting with photograms, a process in which the subject is recorded directly on light sensitive paper without using a camera. This image was taken during a performance in Arles called Dissolving of Bodies, in which life--size photograms of human figures were exposed to the elements. One was buried, another burned, a third flown on a kite and a fourth immersed in the sea.

Ackroyd & Harvey Mother and Child, 1998/2000 Gelatin silver print 1830 1150 mm 214
The work of Ackroyd & Harvey conflates photography and photosynthesis. By projecting a negative over a surface of seeds, the germinating grass produces varying amounts of chlorophyll, resulting in shades of green that form an image. The living grass ‘photograph’ was re-shot to scale and printed on black and white paper to preserve the ephemeral original. The image depicts Ackroyd and her daughter, providing a symbolic and literal take on genetics. The process and subject raises questions about preservation and posterity.

GENESIS IN PLATINUM Sebastião Salgado
A decade or so ago, the Brazilian photographer Sebastião Salgado decided to look at the world with new eyes. For 30 years, he had recorded the harsh side of humanity, its suffering from famine, poverty and war and the displacement forced on tens of millions of people by man-made calamities. The experience left him dejected with the state of the world. Then, in the late 1990s, he and his wife, Lélia Wanick Salgado, embarked on an ambitious plan to transform arid land owned by his family in Brazil by reforesting it with the original species that once thrived there. The programme brought new life to the land and it revived Salgado, inspiring Genesis, the latest of his long-term photographic projects, this time with nature at its heart. Put simply, Genesis began as a quest for the world as it was, as it was formed, as it evolved, as it existed for millennia before modern life began distancing us from the very source of our being. It became a journey to the landscapes, seascapes, animals and peoples that have so far escaped the long reach of today’s world. And it demonstrates that our planet still harbours vast and remote regions where nature reigns in silent and pristine dignity. Eight years and 32 journeys to distant corners of the planet resulted in a 520-page photographic book, Genesis, and eponymous exhibitions in a score of cities. The Salt of the Earth, a documentary about Salgado’s life directed by Juliano Ribeiro Salgado and Wim Wenders, including Genesis, was recently shortlisted for an Oscar. Photographs from Genesis now also constitute a special portfolio comprising 50 platinum prints on Arches Aquarelle paper, in an edition of 16, plus three Artist Proofs. Through these photographs, Genesis offers a visual tribute to a fragile planet that we all have a duty to protect. Its wonders are to be found in polar circles and tropical rainforests, in wide savannahs and scorching deserts, on glaciercovered mountains and solitary islands. Some regions are too cold or arid for all but the hardiest forms of life; others are home to animals and ancient tribes whose survival depends on their isolation. The project was named Genesis because Salgado imagined turning back the clock to the volcanic eruptions and earthquakes that shaped the earth; to the air, water and fire that gave birth to life; to the oldest animal species that still resist domestication; to remote tribes whose way of life is largely unchanged; and to extant early forms of human organisation. Salgado wanted to examine how humanity and nature have long co-existed in ecological balance. 219
His approach was not that of a journalist or scientist or anthropologist. In his own words, in Genesis, ‘I followed a romantic dream to find – and share – an unspoiled world that all too often is beyond our eyes and reach.’ His goal was not to go where man had never before set foot, although untamed nature is usually to be found in pretty inaccessible places. Rather, he simply wanted to show nature at its best wherever it could be found. And he found it in boundless spaces of immense biodiversity which, amazingly, cover almost half the earth’s surface: in the deserts of Sahara and Namibia; on the icebergs of the Antarctic and the glaciers of Alaska; in the tropical forests of Brazil and Indonesia; and in mountain ranges of awe-inspiring splendour. Salgado’s earlier global projects, Workers, Migrations and many others, had forced him to share the trials and tribulations of humanity. This one brought challenges of a different kind. Travelling on foot, in boats, small planes or balloons, all the while photographing volcanoes, icebergs, deserts or jungles, he beheld a world unchanged in millennia. And with animals in the wild – from the penguins, sea lions and whales of the Antarctic and South Atlantic to the lions, wildebeests and elephants of Africa – he witnessed the endlessly repeated cycles of life. He was often deeply moved by what he saw. He spent four weeks in a tiny boat recording the Southern Right whale in one of its largest breeding grounds off the Valdés Peninsula on Argentina’s Atlantic coast. While waiting for the best light to photograph, 15-metre-long whales and their young played around his boat, sometimes coming so close that he could have stroked them. And who would not be touched by one of nature’s grandest spectacles, that of a 40-tonne animal leaping into the sky, then crashing with a thundering sound into the water? His search for ancient communities proved more complex. While ‘uncontacted’ tribes still live in the jungles of the Amazon and New Guinea, of the remote peoples that he visited, only the Zo’é Indians in the Amazon and the Stone Korowai in West Papua have barely been touched by the outside world. Many others maintain strong identities and have kept the age-old shapes of their wooden homes, their languages, religious rituals, hunting methods and diets. But they no longer live in total isolation. Salgado’s aim was to portray these peoples as close as possible to their ancestral way of life. Some wear second-hand clothes distributed by evangelical groups, but he was able to show the ceremonial attires and tribal customs of which they are most proud and which in a few decades may survive only in photographs. Sooner or later, the modern world will touch them – or they will go looking for it. Yet even in this vanishing world, he found communities that still live in harmony with nature. Genesis, then, is the record of Salgado’s journey into the unknown, his love poem to the majesty and fragility of earth, to the mosaic of beauty that nature still offers. And it is this that Genesis celebrates. But Salgado also concluded his odyssey with a sombre awareness that, through ignorance, rapacity or indifference, we risk losing this extraordinary legacy.

PROSTITUTE Kaveh Golestan Vali Mahlouji
Prostitute (1975 –77) by the pioneering documentary photographer Kaveh Golestan (1950 – 2013) constitutes the last extant photographic document of the Citadel of Shahr-e No – the notoriously squalid and vibrant red-light district of Tehran – before it was burnt down (with an undisclosed number of residents trapped inside) during the Iranian revolution in 1979. After scorching, the remnants of the quarters were destroyed and the entire neighbourhood was bulldozed flat and out of sight by official decree. The formation of the district dated back to the 1920s. It was a thriving red-light quarter by the 1940s. The area came to be called the Citadel after the erection of a wall in 1953 that enshrined it as an inner city ghetto. The exclusion of the neighbourhood from the open city landscape was an initiative of the post 1953 CIA-aided coup d’état that deposed the government of Dr Mosaddeq and installed General Zahedi as prime minister. The Citadel of Shahr-e No became also known as the Zahedi Citadel. The walled ghetto was accessed through a gate and was structured internally around two main avenues, broadly dividing living and business quarters. One of the avenues consisted mainly of houses where the women lived and raised their children some of whom were born into, and lived their entire lives inside, the neighbourhood. The other avenue was largely a business quarter where women received their clients. Throughout the district madames and pimps were busy cutting deals and trading in addictive substances. The area was rich with drinking dens, cabarets and other entertainments catering mainly for a highly bohemian clientele including artists and writers. Foreign directors of film and theatre such as Bernardo Bertolucci and Peter Brook adored the place. By the mid 1960s, it had its own health clinic, police station and a small but very active social services department. A few years before the Iranian revolution, Golestan completed a very personal mission. Without an official permit he brought his camera to bear on the Citadel of Shahr-e No, publicly exposing its interior in three consecutive photo-essays in the Iranian daily Ayandegan in 1977. Golestan spent a year and a half between 1975 and 1977 carefully composing the sixty-one portraits, edited down from a substantially larger pool of negatives. His project involved several years of extensive study and research, long visits to the district during which he befriended many of its residents. His meticulous observation and sensitivity to the individual subjectivities of the women has produced a remarkable body of portraits. For Golestan photography is a civic refuge at the disposal of those robbed of citizenship. Here, this condition was exemplified by the segregation of his subjects from the mainstream of society, not just by 227
their abject poverty or illegal profession, but physically and geographically by enclosure within the walled ghetto. His transgressive lens became a conduit for the marginalised to interact with the mainstream, to overcome public denial about the truth of their experiences. Golestan consciously identified with the excluded, his aim was to summon us to action, to move, to radicalise and politicise his audience. Indeed, when he showed these photographs at Tehran University in 1978, his exhibition was shut down prematurely after fourteen days – the works remain unseen to date. The project was originally conceived as a triptych; Prostitute, Worker, Asylum. It included parallel exposés of low-income labourers and mentally handicapped children who had been abandoned to the care of an asylum. Focussing on those robbed of citizenship, his engagement with the marginalised and socially excluded was part of a contemporary movement that found its voice in films of, amongst others, Ahmad Faroughi, Ebrahim Golestan, Forough Farrokhzad and Kamran Shirdel. To a lesser or greater degree these works investigated the radical implications of the discourse of natural rights as defined by the plights of women, the poor, labourers, abandoned children, the mentally ill and inmates. They were opportunities for the invisible to be seen and heard. Importantly, Golestan insisted that we should look at the photographs formally as portraits: ‘I consider this an exhibition of portrait photography. This is the context within which I framed the work. Naturally, in order to portray the reality, I have ensured that some of the sitters are portrayed within their [individual] setting. This was possible in the context of the Prostitute and Worker series but not when I photographed the children. There, I literally had only ten minutes.’ The scene, the situation of dispossessed citizenship, is supplanted by the centrality of the person. Golestan consciously attempts to avoid turning the prostitute into a sign whilst creating Shahr-e No. These images are mostly consciously constructed intimate portrayals of individual subjectivities. Young and apparently not so young women gaze directly at the spectator, quietly enduring their various predicaments. The gaze of the women varies. They are frank, sharp, probing, passive, exhausted, furious, introverted, defensive, warning, aggressive, hate-filled, pleading, unbalanced, sceptical, cynical, indifferent, anticipating or demanding. To avoid fetishism, Golestan’s own photographic gaze must sublimate sexual drives and mitigate patriarchal marks of masculine ownership. Nevertheless, notions of beauty, femininity, desire, erotic sensibility and the politics of sexuality are often openly projected through the technologies of the gaze. Similarly, the dynamic field of power relations through which the photographer creates Shahr-e No misses no intimate detail of costume, of a jewel if there is one, of a gesture, or a crack in the wall, a fold in the cloth. Whether ravishing beauties or distressingly abused individuals, these historically compounded portraits of trauma constitute one of the strongest topographies of femaleness produced photographically in Iran.

Ratan Engineer It is with great sadness that we learned, shortly before going to press, of the untimely death of Ratan Engineer, aged 61. Ratan was a great friend and supporter of Photo London. We shall miss his wise counsel as a member of the Advisory Board. Our condolences go to his family.
