In Beyond Black, Jane Brettle re-presents a series of iconic images from the history of photography. Stella Santacatterina discusses the work of Jennifer Allora and Guillermo Calzadilla, whose video works are shown at both the Whitechapel and Serpentine galleries in 2007. Martin Parr introduces Keith Arnatt’s Pictures from a Rubbish Tip, a series of colour photographs which influenced photographic practice almost 20 years ago, and now included in a retrospective of his work.
The 2007 Jerwood Photography Awards are launched in May 2007. Now in their fifth year, these annual Awards are supported by the Jerwood Charitable Foundation and organised by Portfolio Magazine. They are open to artists who work with photography and aim to support recent graduates in their transition to professional life. The five Awards each carry £2,500, with a group exhibition and publication in Portfolio. Details are available in this issue and on the Portfolio website.
