Vanessa Winship’s Exploration of Fragility and Memory

The work of British contemporary photographer Vanessa Winship is currently on view at Barbican Art Gallery in London. Vanessa Winship: And Time Folds is the first major exhibition of Winship’s work in the UK. The recipient of the Henri Cartier-Bresson Award in 2011, Winship’s work explores the fragile nature of our landscape and society, and how memory leaves it mark on our collective and individual histories.

Vanessa Winship: And Time Folds brings together more than 150 photographs, many of which have never been seen in the UK, as well as a collection of unseen archival material.

Images from across 6 different series are featured in the exhibition, spanning nearly 20 years of work made in the Balkans, Turkey, the Caucasus, the eastern-European State of Georgia, and the United States. The show also includes images from an ongoing series called “And Time Folds” that combines black & white and color photography with found objects, creating a thought-provoking departure from her previous series.

Vanessa Winship: And Time Folds is on display alongside an exhibition featuring Dorothea Lange’s work. The double bill is part of the Barbican’s 2018 season, The Art of Change, which explores how the arts respond to, reflect and potentially change the social and political landscape.
