Julien Pebrel‘s photographs from ‘Les Migrants De Calais’ are a searing document of human misery and hope, a momentary look at a catastrophe that seems neverending and to which there is no solution as people flood into Europe fleeing from war, poverty, death. Like Gianni Cipriano‘s photographs of migrant life on the small Italian island of Lampedusa – that lies halfway between North Africa and Sicily – where up to 53,000 North African and Sub-Saharan migrants arrive every year in the search for a better life, Pebrel travelled to Calais, the last port of call for many looking for a new start in England.

Concrete Jungle Of Apartments

Japanese Neon City

Sometimes you come across photographs online that immediately grab your attention and you go looking, mining for more information, searching for the artist, wanting to know more. But to no avail.

Marta Utsler’s Paintings Are Atmospheric Pictures

| Art and design | 5 hours ago

Marta Utsler Painting Bruised Twilight

Violent End In Storm

Yellow Light In Typhoon

Moon Tour Through Vortex

Bloody Hell Through Trees

Red Lines On Industrial Building

Marta Utsler‘s paintings are expressive pictures that burst into life out of a frisson of dynamic energy. An elemental force that is both primal and atmospheric, the whirling, dizzying, aggressive lines and forms pulling us out of our comfort zone of gentility and forcing us to recognise our own emotional capabilities and the innate power of nature.

Rachel Barrett’s photographs from ‘Bolinas’ take us into the small unincorporated community of Bolinas in northern California, a place in which a group of disparate people, with a rich cultural and agricultural history, got together after the Summer of Love in 1968 to clean up after an oil spill in the area. From these small collective beginnings a place was born, a home in which families grew and lived off the land, off grid and on their own terms.

Man Drinking Beer By Fire

Dead Rabbit Lying In Grass

Bare Chested Man With Butterfly Tattoos

Autumnal Tree By Lake

Smashed Glass On Car Seat

Matthew Crowther‘s photographs from ‘The Darkness Beyond Tomorrow’ are opaque pictures. They don’t give us anything to latch onto rather they suggest, leave clues to their intent, small narrative elements, like notes that may or may not guide us through his essay. And an essay it is. An attempt to articulate the story of his life – and by extension ours – in any given moment. To unknot all the complications and strands that make up the complex tapestry of our story and give it clarity. A narrative that we can make sense of.

Sublime Concrete Corner On Street

Robin Lambert‘s photographs from ‘Fugue State’ look to encapsulate a visual experience of a psychiatric disorder, a singular moment that has no form, is in some ways without time, an altered state of consciousness in which a person may move about purposely and even speak but is not fully aware of who they are or their relationship to reality.

Chloë Danielle Marson‘s paintings are part of her enquiry into the energy contained within us and the colours we emit. What she calls our ‘biography of colour’. This idea that we, as sentient beings, are part of a universal cycle – that moves from one form of energy to another – constitutes the basis for all her pictures.
