FIRST LOOK 22 SEP, 12 – 4PM.

COASTLINES is Circle Contemporary’s first fine art photography exhibition. Joni Sternbach and Caroline Vera Marrack are contemporary artists who favour analogue photography. In a world of digital media their photographs are taken with the constraints of vintage film cameras – resulting in poetically arresting images.

.

Paying homage to the vintage photographic techniques and equipment used, the opening weekend of the show will also feature a camera obscura pop-up by Tim Hutton, Environmentalist, photographer and yurt maker.

Joni Sternbach

New York based photographer Joni Sternbach takes black and white portraits of surfers around the globe. She creates large-format Tintype photographs which document surfing culture in a way reminiscent of the ‘wild west’ pioneers of early photography. Joni was runner up at the 2017 Taylor Wessing photography award at the National Portrait Gallery.

Caroline Vera Marrack

Caroline Marrack is an artist who writes and takes photographs. She keeps her old rangefinder camera (popular with New York street photographers of the 1960’s) with her to capture something of her day, whether walking in an anonymous foreign street or walking her homeland cliffs of north Cornwall. The photographs for ‘Coastlines’ are deeply physical; we sense the human body treading, touching and brushing past the geology of Cornwall’s ancient landscape.

Surf Site Tin Type

by Joni Sternbach (Hardcover)

.

Surf Site Tin Type is an homage to a sport, a way of life and to the people who practice it. Over the last decade, Joni Sternbach has created portraits in tintype of contemporary surfers that put the world of surfing in a completely new light. Stunning in their detail, these unique images evoke the romance of surfing and the strong individualism of the men and women who live to ride the waves. Working with a large format camera and using hand-poured tintype plates, Sternbach has profiled a fascinating range of people on beaches around the world, from Malibu to Montauk to Byron Bay, Australia. While most photographers deal with the action of surfing,Surf Site Tin Type captures the surfers and the settings that are the true essence of the sport. Surf Site Tin Type features texts by noted photo critic and historian Lyle Rexer, April M. Watson, Curator of photography at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, champion surfer, writer, and filmmaker Chris Malloy and Johnny Abegg.
