‘Christopher Thomas: Lost in L.A.’ opens tomorrow! @christopherthomas_photography has been travelling to L.A. for more than three decades, several times a year, with the knowledge that in the history of photography, no conceptual and comprehensive photographic survey of the Californian metropolis has ever been created. Thomas’s desire to capture the City of Angels in his own distinct style thus grew. In 2014 Thomas set off to L.A. once more, with the project specifically in mind, to record the architectural highlights and famous ‘Googie’ icons (vernacular commercial architecture), as well as the lesser known buildings and areas, noting down where to stand, what details his images should include and the light conditions. He settled on capturing the scenes primarily in the early hours of the morning, just before dusk, or at night by moonlight.
#Regram @lecielfoundation 'Wisdom and Nature', a travelling exhibition in celebration of nature and ancestral wisdom, culminating in a charity auction on 29 November in New York at @phillipsauction in support of Le Ciel Foundation's missions. Inspired by the beauty of our planet and the wisdom of its people, 'Wisdom and Nature' captures the natural splendour of both humanity and the Earth through 40 contemporary artworks donated by artists and galleries. All of the participating artists' pieces vibrate with this theme and connect to nature in different mediums.
Here is @murrayfredericks 'Mirror 10' and one of Charles March's 'Seascape' photographs. We exhibited both of these photographers series this year at Hamiltons
Visit us today and tomorrow to see ‘Charles March: Seascape’ before it finishes! The exhibition, given 4 stars in @thetimes this week, is not to be missed! “The ‘feeling’ of a place is what I am most interested in. The sea and the seascape view, looking out across the horizon, never changes – it is an eternal view looking out to infinity. It is, if you like, a very deep look at the earth and how we see it. The sea is also a boundary, a line, something to cross or not. It is calming, inspiring and often dangerous. The exploration of that in-between space is an important part of this for me, the liminal space between sea and shore. In one sense it is always moving and changing and in another it is constant. It is kind of a no-man’s land, a place of transition. Somewhere that exists one minute and not the next – an invisible boundary. At the same time inviting you in and keeping you out, beckoning and dismissing.” Charles March
Following our special one week exhibition 'Charles March: Seascape' this week, 'Christopher Thomas: Lost in L.A.' will open a week today! With these atmospheric black and white photographs, @christopherthomas_photography brings his unique style of city portraiture to Los Angeles. As with his previous series, he transports the viewer to a silent city, devoid of human presence and cars, particularly extraordinary in a portrait of L.A. The exhibition includes classic views and motifs associated with the city, such as the Hollywood Sign, Randy’s Donuts, Sleeping Beauty Castle in Disneyland and Santa Monica Beach, as well as more unexpected pictures of oil pumps, solitary piers stretching into the Pacific Ocean and the nucleus and centre of Los Angeles under the Spaniards.
Visit the captivating coastline shots by British photographer Charles March in a new exhibition @hamiltonsgallery called "Seascape" until 16 September #mustvisit #mayfairart#hamiltonsgallery #charlesmarch#seascape
