East Photographic - Closer
By Ulli Singleton, 10 May 2019
To celebrate the opening of their new Dalston home and exhibition space, East Photographic exhibited Closer, a selection of works from their represented artists. The exhibition celebrated themes of proximity, friendship, intimacy and integration.
As longstanding friends of East and many of the artists, Hempstead May was once again invited to reproduce images in print for a variety of the artists including Francesca Allen, Emma Hardy, Ryan Lowry, David Brandon Geeting, Benjamin Vnuk, Cait Oppermann and Ilaria Orsini.
We worked intimately with each photographer to best present their images as a precursor to the exhibition. This bespoke process is something Hempstead May prides itself on and is what makes printing at Hempstead May unique within its field.
We collaborated once again with local framers We Are Facility to ensure the prints received the ultimate finish for being exhibited and enjoyed at East's spectacular new location.
We worked scanning, printing and mounting images depicting Francesca's relationship with the Japanese musician Aya Gloomy.
Newly represented by East, we printed a great series for Benjamin including two deeply personal portraits which he worked on in collaboration with model Adela Stenberg for their new project Stranden.
We printed images from Emma's personal series, all shot on film and with a very natural feel.
Ryan Lowry recently released his Ha Ha Happiness publication and we printed some beautiful images from this series.
David Brandon Geeting
We printed and mounted for David Brandon Geeting who has an extensive and impressive portfolio of unique still-life photography.
We mounted Cait's photographic contact sheets taken from her most recent travels which express themes of integration.
We worked alongside Ilaria to finish and mount Ilaria's prints to go alongside her moving image exhibit for Closer.
We wish East Photographic a warm welcome and the best of luck at their new East London home.
