Gregory Halpern included in new MACK publication, ‘But Still, It Turns’
Published by MACK books, But Still, It Turns is presented alongside an exhibition at the International Centre for Photography. Here, photographer Paul Graham curates a selection of contemporary images to encapsulate a revitalising manifesto that demonstrates a movement towards a lyrical documentary practice.
Bringing together nine dynamic contemporary photographers, Graham teases out a new photographic form that advocates a dedication to the brilliant tangle of reality. Brought together in illuminating discordance, the artists are not trapped by the demands of conventional documentary, they instead tell open-ended stories that present a unique approach.
The title is taken from alleged words uttered by Galileo spoken after being forced to deny his observations of the world, later expanded in Graham’s words, ‘all the world’s infinite consanguinity’. The artists included in But Still, It Turns and corresponding exhibition are Vanessa Winship, Curran Hatleberg, Richard Choi, RaMell Ross, Gregory Halpern, Piergiorgio Casotti, Emanuele Brutti, Kristine Potter, and Stanley Wolukau-Wanambwa. Alongside the diverse selection of works, the book includes a selection of essays by Paul Graham, RaMell Ross, Ian Penman and Rebecca Bengal.
The book will be published in February 2021. It is available for pre-order, find out more here.
