The Royal Academy of Arts in London is currently presenting the first major exhibition in the UK to showcase David Hockney’s landscape work. The show is open until April 2012.
David Hockney’s best known work is perhaps his ‘A Bigger Splash (above). Many of us Lomographers are probably familiar with his photo collages too however, the current exhibition at the Royal Academy in London consists of vivid paintings inspired by the Yorkshire landscape. Many are large in scale and created specifically for the exhibition.
The works on display span fifty years of the artist’s career. The new body of work is placed in the context of Hockney’s extended exploration of landscape. Highlights of the exhibition include three groups of new work made since 2005 when Hockney returned to live in Bridlington. These works show an intense observation of surroundings in a variety of media.
The exhibition reveals the artist’s emotional engagement with the landscape he knew in his youth, as he examines on a daily basis the changes in the seasons and variations in light conditions.
David Hockney: A Bigger Picture has been organised by the Royal Academy of Arts, London, in collaboration with the Guggenheim Museum, Bilbao and the Museum Ludwig, Cologne. On display from Saturday 21st January until Monday 9th April 2012 10am, 6pm daily. Admission is £14 (full price).
"The White Girl" is currently showing in theatres in Hong Kong. We invited photographer Wilson Lee to join the set for a day and use the New Jupiter 3+ and Petzval 85 art lens to capture all the wonderful moments. This is also the first time for Wilson to shoot stills for films. He shared his first-time experience in this interview.
Loretta Ramos is a TV show producer, recently known for Hannibal, American Gods, and Mockingbird Lane. Not quite as dark are her personal photographs, she likes to take with the Diana F+. We couldn't wait to see what she thinks of our brand new Diana Instant Square and sent her a prototype to test.
Not only are our cameras great for taking photos, but sculptor Tom Sachs proves that the possibilities for their uses artistically are endless. Check out how he used one of our products in his recent exhibition entitled "Swiss Passport Office."
