Ken Schles

Invisible City/Night Walk 1983 - 1989

Noorderlicht Photogallery, 4 April - 7 June

This spring the Noorderlicht Photogallery digs deep into a mythic time in New York’s Lower East Side. Ken Schles’ images from the 1980s are a gritty, penetrating portrayal of a city racked with violence, when crime rates were high and drug addicts and artists ruled his downtown world. An explosive but creative cocktail yielding an intoxicating brew of light, darkness and desire.

The exhibition of 100 black and white photographs coincides with the publication of a new monograph, Night Walk (2014), a companion to Schles’s underground cult classic Invisible City from 1988. Recently reprinted by Steidl, Invisible City is considered alongside Brassaï’s Paris de Nuit and Ed van der Elksen’s Love On The Left Bank to be one of the great depictions of the nocturnal bohemian experience of the 20th century.

Opening: Friday 3 April at 17.00 hrs. With an introduction by Ken Schles.

Everyone is cordially invited!

North Korean Perspectives

Drents Museum, Assen

What impression do we have of North Korea on the basis of the photographs that are available to us? That is the central question in the Noorderlicht photo exhibition North Korean Perspectives, which will be on view at the Drents Museum in Assen simultaneously with The Kim Utopia. While The Kim Utopia focuses mainly on the idealized North Korea, this photo exhibition compares the official version of the State with an alternative view of the country.

  • North Korean Perspectives
  • 3 April through 30 August
  • Drents Museum, Assen The Netherlands

Last call for submissions Noorderlicht 2015

Data Rush

DEADLINE 30 March!

Last chance for submissions and suggestions of photographers and curators for Noorderlicht 2015: Data Rush. These are welcome through 30 March.

Data Rush investigates the tension between freedom and control in a virtual world. At the same time, on a photographic level it poses the challenge: if photography is a medium that tells us stories about the physical world we live in, how can it enlighten us about life in a virtual world, and the revolutions taking place in it?
