The James Hymn gallery joins this months Fashion Night Out Festivities in London by presenting fourteen works by celebrated German photographer Albrecht Tuebke.
The photographic series titled ‘Made In Italy’ is Tuebke’s first solo UK exhibition, in which he explores the many ways people present their public personae, by attempting to distil the essence of his subjects.
The intimate series of portraits draws its inspiration from August Sander’s now legendary ‘People of the Twentieth Century’ series.
Tuebkke allows his subjects to choose style themselves in their best frocks, decide stance and gaze, enabling the photographer to capture their perceived public image.
Tubke’s previous work has been part of the ‘How We Are: Photographing Britain’ at the Tate Britain, ‘New Photographers 2006’ at Antwerp’s Museum vow Fotografie amongst others.
His work can be found at in the public collections of several art institutions across the continent including Victoria and Albert Museum in London,
La Maison Europeennede la Photographie Paris .
Private View 14th of September.
The exhibition will be opening for the public on 15th of September – 6th of November.
