Vanessa Winship:The Season
16.03 – 14.04.2022
Huxley-Parlour is delighted to present an exhibition of new photographs by Vanessa Winship. It will be Winship’s first UK exhibition since her 2018 retrospective at The Barbican. The Season draws on seven years of work across five different geographical locations, presented here for the first time.
Spanning Spain, America, France, Bulgaria, and the UK, The Season continues Winship’s enduring interest in landscape and community. Using both colour and black and white photography, the exhibition explores the theme of Winter across continents, with all its corollary ideas of frugality, dormancy, and hibernation. Simultaneously, Winship traces a latent sense of hope in arid, bleak, scenes.
Vanessa Winship (born 1960) has exhibited internationally, including twice at the National Portrait Gallery in London (2008, 2009), at the Rencontres d’Arles in France (2008), with Fundación Mapfre in Madrid (2014), at The Barbican in London (2018), and most recently at the Image Singulieres Photo Festival in Sète, France, in 2019.
Winship has won ‘Photographer of the Year’ at the Sony World Photography Awards in 2008, and was the first woman to win the Prix Henri Cartier-Bresson in 2011. Her work is in several, prominent private collections, such as Tate Britain, Hermés, The Elton John Collection, and the Henri Cartier-Bresson Foundation. She is known for her landscape, reportage, and documentary photography.
