Joni Sternbach & Caroline Marrack
22 SEP – 20 OCT 2018 | FLOOR 1
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.
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 Photographic Portrait Prize at the National Portrait Gallery.
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.

About the Artists
I’m living by the sea again, in a pleasant coastal town where people come and go and I too feel like a visitor. I leave my bed and walk straight to a cafe – the one that smiles with it’s customers; a stalling ritual before walking into the weather to photograph someone or something that embodies the tone of the day. A girl sitting in the sand and a sturdy clump of seagrass both catch my eye – it’s the draw of the light, accepting that some landscapes, like some people and animals, do not yield to the click of a camera anymore than they embrace a stranger ...
