As part of the Art of Change programme, Dorothea Lange: Politics of Seeing, is staged alongside a solo exhibition of work by contemporary photographer Vanessa Winship. Winner of the Henri Cartier-Bresson Award in 2011, Winship is best known for her poetic images exploring memory, identity and the symbiotic relationship between landscape and society. Her startling portraits situate her sitters in the political, social and economical contexts of their time.
Bringing together more than 150 works, many of which have never been seen before, Jane Alison, Head of Visual Arts at the Barbican, sees this much overdue exhibition as 'a wonderful opportunity to introduce Winship’s photography to a wider public, as well as to showcase a great body of her powerful, and also deeply poetic work, from early prints to more recent projects completed for the exhibition'.
'This promises to be a stellar summer of two photographic greats' Alison continues. We certainly agree.
