Our Louis Draper exhibition was featured in Artforum's Best of 2016 Issue! The exhibition was ranked number 6 on Vince Aletti's list of top ten exhibitions.
"Draper is here in part as a representative of New York's Kamoinge Workshop, the collective of African American photographers he helped found in 1963; Roy DeCarava was the group's first director. A book and an East Village group show focused timely new attention on Kamoinge this year, but Draper's expansive, engaging retrospective was the most effective argument for the workshop's continuing importance. Working in black-and-white, usually on the streets of Harlem, the photographer sized up his fellow citizens with an incisiveness that allowed for sympathy but was not clouded by it. He was even better with streetscapes and interiors, their missing inhabitants hauntingly present. Gathering years of work, the show made Draper one of the year's most surprising and substantial rediscoveries."
The Annual is Creative Review’s showcase of the best work of the year and is trusted by the industry to highlight stand-out work from around the world.
This year’s Best in Books for Design goes to Himmelstrasse by Brian Griffin.
Photographer Brian Griffin’s Himmelstrasse series offers a moving portrait of the Polish railway tracks used to transport prisoners to Nazi extermination camps during World War Two. The tracks are photographed from head height, some in black-and-white, some colour, and serve as a haunting reminder of the horrors that took place under Hitler’s rule.
