    As the first exhibition of 2017, The Brick Lane Gallery is proud to present 10 international photographers in our new edition of PHOTOGRAPHY NOW. A variety of talents, from emerging to established names, bring a varied collection of photographic works. London-based photographer Hypemari exhibits images from his Good Kid Mad City series, an emotive insight into the reconstructive development of a child's youth: Religion & Beliefs, Exploration and Guidance. Luke Gram brings the conscious realm into the third dimension with his portraits, exploiting the mnemonic quality of photography to evoke nostalgia. A sense of nostalgia also informs Amanda Mason’s series of Polaroids. Instant film evokes nostalgia and other-worldliness, which suits the whimsical, sometimes dark and twisted style of imagery. Travel photography also features, in the works of self-taught photographer Maciek Trezciak, in Fabiolla Loureiro’s shots from around the globe and in Michael Filonow’s practice. Black and white photography never fails to attract contemporary photographers and here takes form in Katie Kubrak’s series Details representing unnoticed elements in the rush of daily life, Mikio Hausi’s fashion photography and Sean Pollock’s altered photographs. Valeri Tsourikov presents digitally modified photos to concretize ideas of creating harmony in chaos using the figure of a ballerina as a symbol of beauty, a concept also explored in Steven Hopkin-Jones’ floral portraits, which address the tension between beauty and decay.
