I am incredibly delighted to share some extraordinary news with you.
Part of my series “Landscapes Within” will be shown in a group expo called “Civilization: The Way We Live Now”. The show will travel the globe doing all major musea worldwide. This mammoth of an expo will feature top names like Edward Burtynsky, Nadav Kander, Robert Polidori and Olaf Otto Becker.
In all fairness: these photographers are my absolute heroes! I literally have all their books. They’re not just heroes, they’re true legends. Safe to say I’m extremely honoured – and humbled – to be able to show my work alongside these masters of photography.
The inaugural opening is on Wednesday 17th of October at the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Seoul, South Korea. The expo itself is curated by William Ewing and is produced by the Foundation for the Exhibition of Photography (FEP).
As one of the featured photographers I’m also included in the upcoming book release Civilization, by Thames & Hudson. The book launch is at the Flowers Gallery in London, on November the 5th, in partnership with Photo London.
Apart from all the fine photos and works there will be artist talks and symposia as well.
