Gammelgaard Monochrome

Information

Charnwood Arts is on tour again until January 18th 2013 with selections from Gammelgaard Monochrome, a fantastic exhibition of black and white photography from an array of international artists at the Mark Parker Gallery, Hind Leys College, Shepshed. This follows a hugely successful tour to the Creative Hinckley and Basement Galleries in Hinckley earlier this year.

The Danish based Gammelgaard Monochrome Prize and accompanying exhibition is a new international photo competition aimed at exhibiting and promoting fine art monochrome photography of the 21st Century.

Charnwood Arts is delighted to be working with the Gammelgaard Kunst and Kulturcenter in Denmark to bring this wonderful event to the UK. Many of the photographers featured are international award winners producing work of extraordinary interest and quality, including prizewinners Paal Audestad of Norway, Larry Louie of Canada and Nadia Alamri of Oman.

The competition was judged by three renowned personalities in the world of photography: Susan Zadeh is founder of contemporary photography magazines ‘Eyemazing’ and ‘Freeye’; Steve McCurry has won several of photography’s top awards and many of his images have become modern icons; Henrik Saxgren became a photojournalist focusing on international issues from Haiti to Palestine, Cuba to Rwanda. Since 1995 he has continued to produce books and exhibitions with a particular interest in landscape photography.

The link with Charnwood Arts came through the work of Leicester based photographer Kajal Patel whose work in the Ramapir slum in Ahmedabad, Gujarat was presented on-line through the BBC. Charnwood Arts has worked with and supported Kajal’s development since 2005/6 and her exhibition from Ramapir has toured extensively in the UK with accompanying talks and workshops.

Charnwood Arts has worked in India with local partners for over twenty years and are keen to develop further partnership work with Gammelgaard Kunst (Arts) and Kultur Centre. Working through the Charnwood Arts Kala Kahani programme with Kajal Patel and other artists, we will develop ‘Lightseekers’ to promote cross cultural projects and photography education work with children and young people in India.
