Kaveh Golestan, Prostitutes of Iran

Gordon Parks, I Am You

Though Gordon Parks is best perhaps best known as the filmmaker behind the iconic blaxploitation movie Shaft it is his photographic documentation of much of the Civil Rights era that pays the greatest testament to his legacy as an artist.

Nan Goldin, The Beautiful Smile

The Beautiful Smile by Nan Goldin is a newly reprinted book of the photographer’s Hasselblad award-winning photo series. Critically-acclaimed, but with a cult impact, Goldin’s work highlights the permanence of loss, but also the power of memory.

Duane Michals, Portraits

Over the course of an ongoing 55-year career, Duane Michals has constantly reinvented himself and, in many respects, the conventions of the narrative photographic story, never content to settle on the limitations imposed by technology or taste. We consider his legacy through the prism of his celebrity portraits.

Larry Clark, Forever Young

During a career that spans nearly half a century, his work has attracted praise, “a wake-up call to the modern world”, and from the other side, “nihilistic pornography”. Photographer, film-maker, artist and counter-cultural figurehead Larry Clark captured youth culture before youth culture was even a thing.

Reluctant Hero, Michael Shannon

Araki, The Man

Gentrification, Carolyn Drake

The port city of Vallejo, California, has long been known for its gangs, bad schools and crime. Exacerbating its reputation as a “miserable place”, the city declared bankruptcy in 2008 after the core of its economy, the naval shipyard on Mare Island, shut down.

Brian Griffin, RAF Benson

As one of the UK’s most prominent portrait photographers, Brian Griffin has, for the majority of his career, been taking images of a world that seems imbued with a particularly British sensibility. And by that, we’re not alluding to our post-Brexit state of island insularity, but one that has consistently, yet perhaps secretly, embraced a sense of the anarchic.

Figure Dancing

In recent years there has been a notable resurgence of figurative painting in contemporary art (it never went away, but now it’s flourishing in a way that was hard to imagine at the beginning of the decade), and it’s from here we can tell the story of this resurgence by looking at five pictures made in the 21st century and considering how they relate to the history of painting.

Abigail Jones, A Taste for Perfection

Abigail Jones has recorded much of the past nine years of her life in a series of autobiographical paintings, drawings and collages titled A Taste for Perfection. It’s a seductively illustrated diary of thoughts and observations, swinging from the personal and political and back again, and it’s funny. Brutally honest, but brutally funny.

John Edmonds, Some Type of Togetherness

Since graduating from the Yale School of Art last year, John Edmonds, 28, has enjoyed an unusually fast ascent to international prominence. Two of his series of photographs, in particular, have been the subject of much writing and discussion, and while they’re timely and important images, they’re also very beautiful.

Joe Webb, Balancing Dark and Light

With three solo shows in London in the last 12 months, Joe Webb is about to fill his original hometown, at this fascinating moment in its history, with his sharp visions of 21st-century life.

Peter De Potter, All Statues Sing Protest Songs

Belgian visual artist, writer, and curator Peter De Potter has long been known for his collaboration with fellow countryman Raf Simons, helping to define and refine the fashion designer’s aesthetic during the noughties, creating all his imagery between 2001 and 2009 and acting as art director for Simons’ book Redux.

Mr & Mr Smith

The young star of Baz Lurhman's short-lived hip-hop saga The Get Down was photographed by rap royalty the RZA for THE FALL's latest issue. Meet the relaxed charm and charisma of Justice Smith.
