Worship by Ildiko Buckley
Presenting her first solo exhibition at Kenny Schacter/ROVE and sponsored by Bayeux, Ildiko Buckley will show five photographic works that make up her new series Worship. Shot entirely on film, these large scale images offer a calm, unbiased glance into different religious cultures. Capturing an actual moment visually and physically the scale of the images will allow the viewer to almost inhabit the space occupied when taking the pictures.
Using only natural light each photograph shows a centred image of the various altars, or equivalent, of worship for five major religions. These include a Hindu temple, an Islamic Mosque, a Roman Catholic Church, a Buddhist Centre and a Jewish Synagogue. Each environment is devoid of human presence, instead attempting to capture the aura of the space.
The images aim to be neutral and do not attempt to comment on any of these sacred places but instead offer an insight into what is the everyday practice of another. For most viewers it will an opportunity to gain access to otherwise clandestine spaces where our most significant life rituals are marked and celebrated for each community - births, marriages and deaths.
Buckley's practice focuses around notions of portraiture, identity and self-presentation and their relation to memory and nostalgia. This series offers portraits of a community space, aiming to capture something of the stillness of each room and the energy that it imbues; its colours, symbols, shapes, architecture, light and artefacts.
Many of us pass these places every day without comtemplating them. Buckley is fascinated by their individual beauty and how identity is informed by our culture's resepctive rituals and diverse experiences of worship.
Landscape Photographer of the Year
Now in its sixth year, the Take a view - Landscape Photographer of the Year Awards is open for entries and you have until mid-July to upload your pictures for a chance to win £10,000. 'Take a view', the idea of renowned landscape photographer, Charlie Waite, is one of the nation's most exciting photographic awards and the search for the 2012 winner is on.
Entrants have until 15th July to enter the 2012 Awards by submitting their photographs of the British landscape. The competition is open to everyone and you can enter up to 25 photographs across the four categores. There is a prize fund worth £20,000, including £10,00 for the overall winner. There is also a special class for those under 16, so the whole family can get involved.
An exhibition of the winning and commended entries will premiere at the National Theatre in London in late November 2012 and all successful entries will also appear in a stunning book by AA Publishing.
All entries to the award must be uploaded via the competition webiste, www.take-a-view.co.uk. Entry fees apply. Full terms and conditions can be found on the site.
Festival! is currently at the National Theatre until 4th June. All the images were printed and mounted by Bayeux.
From the riotous colour and noise of Rio to the more cerebral rhythms of Hay, festivals offer an escape route from the everyday to the urgent and boisterous celebration of harvests, music, books, tomatoes and bog snorkelling. As we approach a summer of unprecendented festivity, images from the Corbis archive take us into the pop-up worlds of the vibrant, the scared and the very, very odd.
In association with Corbis, the National Theatre's Photographic Images Parner.
Exhibition opening times:
Monday - Saturday from 9.30am - 11pm
Sunday 12pm - 5.30pm (closed 3 June)
Feel Flows, an exhibition by Siobhan Bradshaw, is currently being shown in Bayeux's reception area.
Siobhan is a photographer who lives and works in London. She first discovered her passion for photography whilst studying Fine Art at Central St Martins College. She was living in Soho and remembers "The window of my flat was a perpetual cinema screen, through which I became voyeur."
Siobhan's work is heavily influenced by the strong emotive imagery of old jazz record covers and Film Noir. Returning to Soho for her most recent project, her new body of work draws parallels between photography and jazz in its improvisation, fluidity and flow.
"Jazz to me is a musical expression of subjective individual emotions by particular individuals in their own unique way. Every jazzman feels, sees, and hears everything and everything he was and is becomes the source and object of his music. It is a music purchased with dues of hardship, suffering and pain, optimism and love." Roy DeCavara.
Siobhan's photography has been exhibited at the Jazz Cafe since 2009.
Feel Flows until 20th April 2012.
The Devils exhibition
When Ken Russell died in November 2011 the British film world mourned the passing of one of our most colourful, maverick directors. Now, for the first time ever, The British Film Institute is releasing his controversial film, The Devils (1971), on DVD. This special edition release will not only feature the longest version of the film ever, but will also include a host of new and exciting extra features. The DVD is to be released on 19 March 2012.
To mark this historic occasion, an exhibition of specially selected publicity stills and rare production photographs celebrating the creative talents behind The Devils will be shown the Atrium at BFI Southbank until 21 March 2012. The stills have all been printed by Bayeux.
24:2012 Mayfair falls beneath the spell
24:2012 is the ninth annual show by 24Photography, once again sponsored by Bayeux, residing in Berkeley Square, Mayfair and running for 24 days from 24 February until 19 March.
As the chimes of Big Ben welcomed in 2004 they signalled the start of a photographic project that saw 24 postgraduate photography students, from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, document the first day of the New Year. From the welcoming of the New Year to the end of its first day, these images capture the essence of that day for the photographers involved. But that year was just the beginning. The photographers involved have embarked on a hugely ambitious photographic project that will span a generation.
24 hours. 24 photographers. 24 images. 24 years.
How will the group, the project, the world it documents, change over the next quarter of a century? This elaborate social documentary will record what New Year's Day represents - not only as a one off event - but also as an ongoing and developing catalogue of what the end of one year and beginning of another comes to represent over time.
Dream in Colour - The Art of Stylorouge - An Exhibition
Aubin Gallery are delighted to present 'Dream in Colour', a series of new works and reinterpreted archive imagery by leading London creative studio Stylorouge. The exhibition has been printed and framed at Bayeux and will run 11th January - 3rd February 2012.
This London-based creative consultancy was founded in 1981 by creative director, Rob O'Connor, who has steered Stylorouge through various phases embracing design for print, web and multimedia, photography and video production. The team have created some of the most well regarded imagery for the music and movie industries for over 30 years for the likes of Blur, Morrissey, The Rolling Stones, George Micheal and the now iconic artwork for Trainspotting, amongst many others.
To celebrate their 30th anniversary, Stylorouge have let their creative minds loose on a whole new series of art pieces for a groundbreaking exhibition of personal artisitc work with their whole team entering a process of self-directed artisitc creation specifically for the show. The resulting video installations, assemblages, painting and photography give a unique insight into the concerns and motivations of one of the most progressive and engaging creative studios once freed from commercial constraints. Rather than the usual cohesive collaborative work that the studio produces, this exhibition charts the individual journeys of each of the participants.

Take a view - Landscape Photographer of the Year 2011 Exhibition at The National Theatre
The fifth annual Landscape Photographer of the Year exhibition is currently showing at The National Theatre on London's South Bank, with over 100 beautiful landscape images printed using the latest Epson inkjet technology. Bayeux again provided the prints for this year's awards and we were impressed once more by the high standard of work on show.
Charlie Waite, one of Britain's best-loved landscape photographers and founder of Take a view said of the exhibition: "When I first walked into the exhibition space this year, my first thought was 'stunning '. The impact of the wonderful photography is undeniable and the way that each image has been printed really shows off the photographic skills of the winners at their best... He continues, "Our wide definition of 'landscape' includes images of people in the landscape, landscape details & urban views and these complement the classic sweeping view, so that there is something of interest for everyone. This, in my view, is a 'must see' exhibition. If you want to be reminded of how awe-inspiring Britain is, come and visit the National Theatre."
The exhibition runs until the 28th January and admission is free. It is once again supported by Epson UK and their Digigraphie prints ensure consistent standards and 'fine art' quality. Bayeux is the only approved Digigraphie printer in the UK.
Abhaya: Burma's Fearlessness
Bayeux recently printed some very powerful images by James Mackay for the Moving Walls 19 exhibition at the Open Society which opens on November 29th in New York. The exhibition also travels to Bangkok where it opens on the 24th November. It coincides with the publication of his book "Abhaya: Burma's Fearless", which highlights the plight of political prisoners and the struggle for democracy and human rights in Burma. The book features a forward by Aung San Suu Kyi and celebrates the anniversary of her release from house arrest.
In 1962 a military coup lead by General Ne Win saw Burma, an isolated Buddhist country in South East Asia, come under the power of one of the world's most brutal regimes. For the past five decades, thousands of people have been arrested, tortured and given long prison sentences for openly expressing their beliefs. Today, more than 2,000 political prisoners including monks, students, journalists, lawyers, elected Members of Parliament and over 300 members of Aung San Suu Kyi's opposition party, The National League for Democracy, are incarcerated in horrendous conditions in Burma's notorious prisons.
In Burma and across the world, hundreds of former political prisoners have come together to raise awareness of the tragic plight of their colleagues still detained in jail. Abhaya - Burma's Fearlessness is part of an international appeal for their liberation.
Photographed standing with their right hand raised, palm out-turned facing the camera, the name of a current political prisoner is shown written on their hand. The sacred Buddhist gesture of Abhaya, "Fear Not", is not only an act of silent protest, but also one of remembrance and fearlessness.
"The people featured in this book have all had to learn to face their fears squarely during the decades they have passed in the struggle for democracy and human rights in Burma. Their commitment has been their courage. It is important that they and what they stand for should not be forgotten, that their sufferings as well as their aspirations should be remembered. James Mackay has contributed greatly towards this vital remembrance, which is essential if our world is to become a progressively safer, kinder home for humanity."
"I hope that all who read this book will be encouraged to do everything they can to gain the freedom of political prisoners in Burma and to create a world where there are no political prisoners." Aung San Suu Kyi
