What they’ve been up to since Photofusion Select/13…

In the lead up to the 2013 Salon and 2014 Select exhibitions, we thought it would be nice to look back on the successes of those who exhibited last year.

SALON/12 saw over 160 images installed in the gallery, with an additional selection on an AV show reel. From these images, four photographers – Carlotta Cardana, Ariadne Radi Cor, Tim Mitchell and Dafna Talmor – were selected to develop and exhibit a larger body of work for the Photofusion SELECT/13 group show that followed in the Spring.

All exhibitors have gone on to exhibit, win awards and grants for their fantastic photographic projects! See below to find out what they have been up to…

Carlotta Cardana

Most recently for Carlotta was her award for “Discovery of the Year” at the latest Lucie Awards ceremony.

Carlotta will also be in Paris for Paris Photo, from 11 – 15 November, exhibiting her latest project on American Indian identity and pride.

In addition to the above, Carlotta has an image in this year’s Portrait Salon. The chosen image is “Olly and Jade” and will be on show simulataneously in London, Leeds, Edinburgh and Brighton. The opening night is 12 November – for more info see here.

And finally, Carlotta had a print in the recent AOP Open Awards exhibition that took place over a weekend in mid-Octover at B3, The Old Truman Brewery.

Dafna Talmor

Dafna has work in a group exhibition open now at The Pie Factory in Margate, from 1 – 12 November 2013. She will be exhibiting photographs from her series Constructed Landscapes alongside a wide variety of other work. The private view for this is tonight from 18.00 – 20.30.

Dafna also has another image from her Constructed Landscapes project selected for the Archisle #2 Open Photography Exhibition 2013 at the Berni Gallery-Jersey Arts Centre, St. Helier.

Since exhibiting as part of Select/13 Dafna has gone on to do a Residency & Exhibition at The Old Lookout Gallery, Broadstairs, Kent in late August. During this residency Dafna transformed the tiny wooden room of The Old Lookout Gallery into a gallery-sized camera obscura, photo-studio and darkroom.

Dafna was also selected as one of the Renaissance Photography Prize 2013 finalists with her Constructed Landscapes series, and had her project, On Landscape, which was co-curated with Minna Kantonen and Emma Wieslander, selected by Yinka Shonibare’s Guest Projects for the 2014 programme. In addition to all of the above, Dafna received a Grants for the Arts Award from Arts Council England to help produce the work for her Select/13 exhibit at Photofusion.

Tim Mitchell

Tim Mitchell currently has 19 luscious prints from two projects showing in a group exhibition at the Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art, in Sunderland.

The show, ‘You Are The Company In Which You Keep’ runs until the 16th of November and hosts a fascinating mix of international artists and photographers such as Gilbert & George, Gustav Metzger, Martin Parr and Paul Graham; all working in ways that could be described as anthropological or ethnographic.

There’s a whole photomonth happening in the North East at the moment, so do have a look if you’re in the area. Mitchell was also awarded an Arts Council of England’s Grants for the Arts to help support this work.

In addition to the above, Mitchell has been working hard to produce a little book ‘Up & Down the Pyrenees’. It has been recently reviewed by photographic historian and writer, Helen James for Photomonitor, a well-respected online photography magazine. You can still buy your copy here, while stocks last. All profits go to charity.

On top of all of that, Mitchell has been keeping busy since the Select/13 exhibition, having completed his first residency in May 2013 at the Global Sustainability Institute as part of the Cambridge Sustainability Residency. He also completed a summer-long commission in Rye, working with the Tilling Green community and the local museum to create sunprint, pinhole and portrait photographs exploring the social history of Rye for their project, Women and Children of Rye.
