Catherine Hyland is an artist based in London. She graduated from Chelsea College of Art and Design with a First class BA (Hons) Degree in Fine Art and completed her Masters at the Royal College of Art. Her photography centres around people and their connection to the land they inhabit. Primarily landscape based, her work is rooted in notions of fabricated memory, grids, enclosures and national identity.

Her large format images depict humanity’s attempts - some more effective than others - to tame it’s environment. An observation that has led to both artistic and commercial outreach, with residences at venues such as Focal Point gallery in Southend for the RADICAL ESSEX programme and has exhibited work at Month of Photography Los Angeles, Renaissance Photography Prize, National Portrait Gallery, Royal Photographic Society, LES MAGASINS GÉNÉRAUX, Somerset House, Design Museum in London, ICA & MAC in Birmingham. Hyland’s ongoing projects highlight humanity’s attempts to tame and transform nature, both past and present.

Photo Vogue Festival 2019 • A Glitch in the System, deconstructing stereotypes

Converted into an exhibition space, the former industrial complex of Base Milano will host 'A Glitch in the System, deconstructing stereotypes', an exhibition featuring the photographers selected through the scouting initiative launched on PhotoVogue, the photographic platform of Vogue.it, which boasts over 180,000 users, and as a result of the assessment of an internationally acclaimed jury consisting of experts from across the world, with different backgrounds and vision so as to provide the most inclusive and multi-faceted perspective.

The jury panel is formed by: Aaron Philip (Model), Alessandro Michele (Creative Director, Gucci), Alessia Glaviano (Brand Visual Director, Vogue Italia, L’Uomo Vogue), Alfredo De Stéfano (Founder and Director, Luz del Norte Fotografía), Ana Casas Broda (Photographer), Anastasia Taylor-Lind (Photojournalist), Azu Nwagbogu (Founder and Director, LagosPhoto Festival), David Campbell (Director of Programs and Outreach, World Press Photo Foundation), Dia Mehta Bhupal (Artist), Duan Yuting (Founder and Director, Lianzhou Foto Festival, co-founder and co-director, Lianzhou Museum of Photography), Emanuele Farneti (Editor-in-chief, Vogue Italia, L’Uomo Vogue, Casa Vogue, Vogue.it), FAKA - Fela Gucci and Desire Marea (Artists), Ferdinando Verderi (Creative Director, Vogue Italia), Ibrahim Kamara (Fashion Editor), Ihiro Hayami (Founder, T3 PHOTO FESTIVAL), James Estrin (The New York Times), Jenn Nkiru (Artist and Director), Jimmy Moffat (Founder, Red Hook Labs, and founding partner, Art + Commerce), Joana Choumali (Artist), Kimberly Drew (Writer, Curator, and Activist), Laura Roumanos (Executive Producer and Co-Founder, United Photo Industries and Photoville), Lotta Volkova (Fashion Editor), Marcelo Brodsky (Visual Artist), Michael Famighetti (Aperture Magazine), Michael Van Horne (Director, Image Archive at Art + Commerce), Pamela Chen (Creative Director, Instagram), Rahaab Allana (Curator/Publisher, Alkazi Foundation for the Arts in New Delhi), Rania Matar (Artist), Simon Bainbridge (Editor-in-chief, British Journal of Photography), Simon Baker (Director, MEP), Sophie Klafter (Photographer), Tasneem Alsultan (Photographer), Yumi Goto (Independent Curator, Editor, Educator and Publisher).

The current edition of the Festival, in keeping with last year’s theme “Embracing Diversity”, aims to continue exploring and promoting diversity in all its form by taking a step further, that is by extending the concept to include not only the subjects whose stories are being portrayed but also those behind the camera who tell those stories.

It’s not just a matter of choosing to direct the camera towards what mainstream culture does not perceive as familiar, and to promote the diversity of the subjects, but also to reflect on the way we choose to represent the ‘glitch’ – the alleged perceived anomaly within the system – so as to avoid perpetrating clichés and reinforcing an ideological vision that is the result of ignorance and lapse of judgment.

‘A Glitch in the System, deconstructing stereotypes’ has been developed as a new chapter in continuity with its history. After considering the power of the female gaze in the artistic scene in the first edition of the festival, aptly titled ‘The Female Gaze’ (2016), exploring the political implications of fashion photography in ‘Fashion and Politics’ (2017), after reflecting on, discovering and promoting diversity in all its forms in ‘Embracing Diversity’ and examining the concept of masculinity in ‘All That Man Is – Fashion and Masculinity Now’ (2018), the 2019 edition of Photo Vogue Festival seeks to broaden our ability to think, both in linguistic and visual terms, and push our thinking a step beyond the known and the familiar, and a step to the side from ideological and mainstream opinions.

What is necessary is to develop a language that is up to contemporary society, a society that can no longer afford an identity closure outside of history and whose political and social challenges no longer allow us to indulge in social prejudices, false myths surrounding identity or in nostalgic feeling for a bygone world – one that most likely, given what it resembled, nobody would have liked. It is necessary to develop a language, including a visual one, which is broad enough to represent all the complexities of our contemporary society and the endless wealth of the fantastic diversity of the possible existing gazes on our world. In this regard, the other necessary action is the deconstruction of stereotypes on which we cannot lower the guard as the meaning of images changes as quickly as society, its convictions and conventions while too often clichés are replaced with other clichés. Indeed, when a stereotype is decried and introjected as such by a society – as in the association of Africa and hunger or Africa and tribal culture, for instance – even the most noble intentions, perhaps in an attempt to ‘amend’ the cliché, end up establishing the opposite cliché, which is equally unrealistic and discriminatory. An education in visual imagery is essential and whoever, either by profession or passion, decides to represent the world has the duty and obligation to ask himself/herself a whole series of questions. We have made great progress regarding a more inclusive representation of diversity, one that is capable of considering the uniqueness and complexities of humankind. In this sense, the people of the web have positively embodied an increasingly more extensive inclusivity project that has come to influence brands and traditional media alike. The new way of looking at gender fluidity, at the diverse wealth of body types and appearances and at the endless forms of beauty, of ethnic backgrounds and origins is an achievement that is changing the contemporary aesthetic standards and is beginning to alter people’s cultural and identity codes in terms of openness, dialogue and encounter. This started to occur only when the narrative was being extended to include not only those whose story we are telling, but those who tell those stories and who often share the same life experience. This is the aspect to focus on in order to build a vocabulary that can describe the complex reality in which we live. Just like words, or perhaps even more so than words, images can hurt, cause misunderstandings, consolidate prejudices. Therefore, we hope that the 2019 edition of Photo Vogue Festival will contribute to the enrichment of our visual vocabulary in order to facilitate a deeper understanding of our contemporary society.

The 30 artists selected for the exhibition are: Caleb Stein, Carlo Rusca, Catherine Hyland, David PD Hyde, David Uzochukwu, Dustin Thierry, Evelyn Bencicova, Fee-Gloria Groenmeyer, Guanyu Xu, Guen Fiore, Hajar Benjida, Julia Gunther, Justin Keene, Karim El Makatafi, Mariya Kozhanova, Miguel Proenca, Miora Rajaonary, Mous Lamrabat, Namsa Leuba, Nanna Heitmann, Osborne Macharia, Peyton Fulford, Prarthna Singh, Rhiannon Adam, Romina Ressia, Roselena Ramistella, Rydel Cerezo, Simon Lehner, Supranav Dash, Vikesh Kapoor.

MAY 31, 2019,

In 2015, the world was shaken by the picture of Alan Kurdi, a three-year-old Syrian boy whose lifeless body was washed up on a Turkish beach.

In desperation to help, photographer Mark Sherratt decided to set up Prints for Refugees in order to raise money for organisations supporting refugees. A collaboration between the photographic community and the humanitarian organisation Doctors of the World, where internationally renowned photographers have generously donated selected artwork to the charity.

By purchasing photography artwork, you can support Doctors of the World to improve access to quality medical care in communities, near and far. An organisation serving more than 1.6 million people every year in over 80 countries in conflict zones, refugee camps and rural communities, providing care,creating infrastructure and advocating for the world’s most vulnerable people.

The collection, gathered from books, magazines, promotional and personal portfolios, offers an informed view of photography today, with images that resonate through their clearly individual point of view. American Photography is a time capsule in the making and offers a who's who in photography, with images by Luc Delahaye, Lee Friedlander, Nan Goldin, Jean Paul Goude, Lauren Greenfield, Brigitte Lacombe, Vincent Laforet, Annie Leibovitz, Martin Parr, Paolo Pellegrin, Spencer Platt, Martin Schoeller, and Stephanie Sinclair, to name a few. Work by today's masters is interspersed with pictures by students and emerging photographers just beginning to make a name for themselves.

American Photography, founded in 1985 is the leading juried annual and advocate of contemporary photography in North America and the world. Regarded by creative professionals as the number one source for today's finest image makers, American Photography is the premier showcase for editorial, advertising, fine art and experimental work. With a history of presenting the most cutting-edge images, its pages have honored work by Richard Avedon, Helmut Newton and William Wegman and has proudly promoted the early careers of Sally Mann, David LaChapelle, Elinor Carucci and Steven Maisel.

AI-AP was created as a direct alternative to other leading organizations and companies of the day who it was thought were not recognizing uncoventional, "cutting-edge" work that was being produced by unheralded artists who were pushing the boundries of commercial work.

Published annually in November, AI-AP books are the first and foremost go-to resourses for art directors, designers, photo editors and art buyers who insist on asigning only the best original, thoughtful and compelling pictures.

Sony World Photography Awards’ 2019 

Showcasing exceptional series by the best artists working worldwide in photography, the World Photography Organisation reveals the shortlisted photographers for the Professional competition of the 2019 Sony World Photography Awards. Within the shortlist are seven British photographers who are behind some of the world’s best bodies of work published in 2018. All shortlisted series will be exhibited as part of the 2019 Sony World Photography Awards Exhibition at Somerset House, London, from April 18 until May 6, 2019. 

The Professional shortlist comprises stunning series selected across ten diverse categories. The six shortlisted British photographers are recognised in three categories. British photographers have excelled in the Landscape category, with four photographers featuring on the shortlist. Edinburgh-based artist Kieran Dodds has been shortlisted for his series Hierotopia, which explores the tiny patches of protected forests surrounding churches in Ethiopia, where farming has led to huge deforestation. West-Yorkshire based academic and artist Yang Wang Preston has been shortlisted for her series To the South of the Colourful Clouds which depicts an otherworldly “ecology recovery” landscape in Haidong Development Zone, Yunnan Province. In this series, Preston studies the environmental impact of turning a rural area into an international leisure town and its dramatic effect on the landscape. Two London-based photographers have also been shortlisted in the Landscape category; Catherine Hyland has been awarded for her series Lithium Mining, in which she uses a muted colour palette to provide a meditative series of landscapes affected by industry. Marco Kesseler’s series Polytunnel focuses on the environment of contemporary British farming, highlighting the hidden landscapes behind which food is produced.

This year’s Professional competition judging was chaired by Mike Trow (Editor, Photographer and Consultant, UK).

Royal Photographic Society International Photography Exhibition 161

• Catherine Hyland (UK) Gold Award and
Christopher Bethell (UK) Gold Under 30s Award
• Exhibition launches at the RPS, Bristol, early 2019
• 54 photographers selected to exhibit

The Royal Photographic Society has announced the award winners for the 161st edition of the International Photography Exhibition (IPE 161), the world’s longest running photographic exhibition. The winners are Catherine Hyland (Gold Award), Christopher Bethell (under 30’s Gold Award), Alys Tomlinson (Silver Award) and Oli Kellett (Bronze Award).

7327 entries were submitted to the open-call from over 60 countries including UK, USA, Australia, Brazil, Russia and Indonesia from which 189 were selected for a shortlist. The final selection was made from prints. 54 photographers were selected to exhibit in the IPE 161 touring exhibition which will open at the RPS’s new building in Bristol early next year, before travelling to Birmingham, London, Dublin and Hull. Selections were made by an esteemed panel comprising of curator and founding editor of online magazine Photomonitor Christiane Monarchi, photographer Jack Latham, documentary photographer Jon Tonks, photographer and professor Karen Knorr FRPS and artist, writer, editor and lecturer in photography Aaron Schuman. The selection panel praised the freshness, variety and consistent high quality of entries and winners whom demonstrate photography executed to the highest standard.
“Our selection panel were truly impressed with the number of interesting photographs submitted, and I believe we created an engaging exhibition across a wide spectrum of genres.” – Christiane Monarchi

Panel member Jack Latham comments on the award winners, “Whether it is photographing crossroads in America as the world waits to see what leaders do next, reflecting on the space of spiritual contemplation or how we, as a society, deal with climate change. Each of these photographers have demonstrated that photography is as relevant a tool as any other to reflect on our time in history.” The panel was also pleased to welcome a large quantity of works submitted by female photographers.
“The winners reflect ongoing trends in contemporary documentary photography, developed by a new generation of photographers who are extending the vocabulary using the medium in a profound and reflective way. The attention to detail and selection of images submitted by the winners made us pause. I was impressed by the crafting and
care dedicated to the photographic image.” – Karen Knorr FRPS.

Radical Essex - Focal Point Gallery - Twenty One

Originally commissioned as part of the Radical ESSEX programme, Focal Point Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of photographic works by Catherine Hyland at Twenty One.  

Hyland’s photographs convey the quiet monumentality of Essex’s modernist architecture, now gently embedded into the landscape and consciousness of its residents, visualising the crucial role the county has played in the history of British Modernism and its utopian ideologies.

Reflecting the view from Twenty One, three large-scale images of Southend's sprawling seafront are on display, the brightly coloured rollercoasters of Adventure Island amusement park, entwined with the town's historic pleasure pier - the longest in the world. The imposition of these frivolous leisure structures wrestle for authority over the vast and indifferent estuary horizon.

Alongside these works, the breadth of intriguing and innovative architecture from across the county are shown, including one of Richard and Su Roger's earliest buildings in Ulting, Harlow shopping centre, the space age architecture of Redshank in Lee-over-Sands and the brutalist style of the old Southend central library. 

This exhibition continues until 28 October 2018. More of Hyland's work can be seen in the forthcoming publication Radical ESSEX.

The Woman, The Gaze, The World

A new exhibition curated by Crystal Bennes, The Woman, The Gaze, The World is loosely themed around a picking apart of the question of whether women see the world differently than men. Here, “seeing” refers most obviously to the individual artist’s interpretation of the world, but also to something which is further mediated through the camera lens.
A second element which ties these ideas of seeing and representation to the gender question (which is admittedly provocative) is about what interpretation itself actually means – as woman, artist, and/or photographer. Rather than attempting to establish each body of work as one of universal applicability, the exhibition presents each artist as offering a specific and personal take on photography as a medium and practice through various acts of filtering, of staging, of manipulating the "truth".
Each artist has been paired with a writer, who has been challenged to create a new piece of writing that responds, however indirectly, to the work of that artist and to the themes in question. The intention here is to add a layer of richness to the exhibition, particularly given the considerable crossover in the way photographers and writers approach reality. Both disciplines frequently tend toward a staging of reality in order to highlight its theatricality and the often flawed assumptions we regularly make about how we think we see the world.

23rd April – 5th May 2013
The exhibition is open Tuesday - Sunday, 12 - 7pm. 
Private View Wednesday 24 April from 6-9pm. Please RSVP to hello@crystalbennes.com
Location: Hanmi Gallery, 30 Maple Street, London W1T 6HA 


Pink Does Not Exist

Pink Does Not Exist re-frames a longstanding debate on the nature of perception and reality through the works of eight artists, each of whom represents a unique strategy in dealing with problems of observation and representation.
The title of the exhibition is a nod to Newton’s discovery of the additive nature of the spectrum of light: white light is a mixture of all the colours in the spectrum – ROYGBIV – while pink, or magenta, is the only colour which does not actually have its own frequency. As such, one could legitimately claim that pink as a colour does not exist, and yet, because of the human brain’s extraordinary malleability, of course we see pink every day. But does this make pink real?
Exhibited in a private flat in north London, Pink Does Not Exist considers the relationship between questions of perception and the practice of viewing art. The relationship between reality and perception has long been a complex one, but no more so than today. In light of quantum mechanics – in particular, the notion promulgated by Thomas Young’s famous double-slit experiment that reality is fundamentally altered by observation – the works in the exhibition bring to the fore the problem of the observer in perceiving reality.

The Way We Live Now

The Design Museum marks Sir Terence Conran’s 80th birthday with a major exhibition that explores his unique impact on contemporary life in Britain. Through his own design work, and also through his entrepreneurial flair, Conran has transformed the British way of life. The Way We Live Now explores Conran’s impact and legacy, whilst also showing his design approach and inspirations. The exhibition traces his career from post-war austerity through to the new sensibility of the Festival of Britain in the 1950s, the birth of the Independent Group and the Pop Culture of the 1960s, to the design boom of the 1980s and on to the present day. The exhibition will also demonstrate Conran's influence and legacy on current designers including recent Royal College of Art graduates who have been awarded the Conran Foundation RCA Award. The exhibition is curated by Stafford Cliff and Deyan Sudjic.

Day+Gluckman/Collyer Bristow 

Electric Sheep, an exhibition exploring the way in which our daily lives have become immersed in technology. 'Awake or asleep it surrounds us, enhancing and reducing our lives. Drawn as we are into the promise of a less cluttered life, of a clean and efficient world, many of the facts and realities of science remain a mystery to most of us. From the beginning of the science fiction genre we seem to have revelled in this mystery; demonising, prophesising and fantasising about the future, or yearning for a nostalgia-driven past.'
