Unseen street photographs reveal London's bleak 1970's | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

We are always looking for some exciting photography made in London. Street photography has never been this popular with so many people owning cameras and camera phones and the internet helping everyone raise the profile of this photographic genre. But it was very different before digital and this time I interview Stephen Gavin, a talented man who's photos have only just recently resurfaced from the 70's.

A Street Photographer of 19th Century London

A Street Photographer of 19th Century London | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

The street photographer I share with you this week was a man born in Great Britain an entire century before Winogrand and Friedlander. His name was John Thomson (1837-1921) and it is known that he traveled the Far East taking photographs during much of the period between 1860-1879. When he returned to London, he began taking documentary photographs of everyday people on the streets of London. Photography during that time was a calculated and time intensive process with bulky cameras and glass plate negatives.

Friday Book Design Blog: Stories From The Fold

Friday Book Design Blog: Stories From The Fold | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Last week I went along to Stories From The Fold, a mini book design conference held at the Bridewell Foundation, just off Fleet Street – a tiny London mecca for anyone interested in book design and typography. Nine speakers were squeezed into four hours – this was very much organised to be of interest to those outside the profession (like me), as well as those inside it.

Graphic Design: Catch up with Europa, London's community-led design practice

Graphic Design: Catch up with Europa, London's community-led design practice | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

London-based graphic design studio Europa are probably the most unassuming of all London’s design practices. Though they’ve produced unspeakably good work for the likes of Frieze, South London Gallery and Tate Britain – as well as working on a multitude of community sourced, open-access projects – they maintain a pleasant anonymity and really aren’t ones to brag about their work. But we’re happy to do it for them, so – as it’s been over a year since we last featured them – why not feast your eyes on a couple of updates (a pleasing graphic identity and some tasty programmes from last year’s Frieze) to remind yourself of the skill of this merry band of RCA graduates.

Exhibition of photographs lost for 60 years reveals a bygone London

Exhibition of photographs lost for 60 years reveals a bygone London | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

On a spring morning in 1912, a man with a tripod and a heavy camera walked out of Liverpool Street station and into the heart of London's East End, capturing the children playing with hoops and skipping ropes, the busy shoppers, the pubs, the horse-drawn delivery carts competing with lorries, the tailors promising individual garments at wholesale prices in an area famous for centuries for textile workers, a now vanished world. He then went home to his new photographic studio at Brightlingsea in Essex, and vanished from history.

Wolfgang Tillmans at Maureen Paley (London) | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Maureen Paley is pleased to announce Wolfgang Tillmans’ seventh solo show at the gallery. For the last few years Tillmans has been working on his Neue Welt project, extending his photographic study to diverse global territories while developing ways of capturing and printing his imagery with advanced digital technology. This new exhibition is both a departure from Neue Welt as well as an extension of that vision. central nervous system presents a renewed exploration into portraiture for Tillmans and focuses on a single subject throughout the show. This new collection of images has not been exhibited before and is as much an intimate portrait of a nuanced relationship as it is a portrait of Tillmans himself.

Roland Collins' Photographs (London)

Roland Collins' Photographs (London) | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

For a spell in the sixties, while Roland Collins was working as a commercial artist for the Scientific Advertising Agency in Fleet St, he had access to a darkroom which enabled him to develop his own photography, and he produced striking and imaginative photoessays – exploring different aspects of London life. Today, it is my pleasure to show this selection of Roland’s evocative images of the East End and the City, published for the first time since their original appearance. And next week, I am looking forward to introducing you to his paintings of the territory.
