Based in Sydney, UK-born photographer Corrie Bond (b. 1974) translates a love of light – whether natural or artificial – into a sophisticated portfolio. Softly-nuanced silhouettes are central to the works, which have been commissioned for numerous editorials with clients such as Marie Claire, NY Times, InStyle and Sony. The images execute feminine style with elegance: muted colours create a palette against gracefully poised models whilst their surrounding subject matter is introduced subtly and methodically. Natural phenomena linger recurrently within the frames: pastel flowers accentuate the delicacy of figures, whilst vintage cars and minimalist architecture provide the backdrop for Bond’s lustrous depiction of contemporary fashion. Although adhering to a classic sense of beauty, the models exude a sense of purpose, captured with gentle attention to detail and polished technique. www.vivienscreative.com.au.
Paz Errázuriz: Fundación MAPFRE, Madrid
Fundación MAPFRE presents the first major retrospective on Paz Errázuriz, one of the most internationally-recognised Chilean photographers. The self-taught photographer started her work in the 1970s, with projects that often involved risky transgressions of the rules imposed by the military regime of that period.
History in Context
There are unseen lines that cross the earth, lines that make little concession to land or water but are owed and owing to both, through industry and habitation.
