LPA Photographers / Patrick Harrison / OPX / McKinsey & Company

March 4, 2015

LPA Photographer Patrick Harrison was recently commissioned by OPX to shoot these bright and youthful portraits for McKinsey & Company

Part of a social initiative to get young people into work across the globe, Patrick’s natural and warm approach to photography fitted perfectly with the brief. Patrick worked with a selection of models representing the multi-cultutral face of the globe and, in his own words, ‘managed to make the East End look like Kenya, Mexico, India, US, Spain and the Far East’. Here are a selection of our favourites…

Dear Ask an Agent,

I recently quoted for a shoot for an ad campaign and have now been asked to go into the ad agency for a chemistry meeting. I wondered if you could tell me what this is it and what they will be expecting from me?

February 26, 2015

Our regular feature Culture Corner is back for Spring! Whether you’re in London or further afield, we’ve compiled a list of the best things to see and do this month…

Drawn by Light / Science Museusm
Sam: ‘The latest show to be held at the Science Museum’s Media Space is a must-see for anyone with an interest in the history of photography. Drawn by Light contains 200 fascinating treasures from the Royal Photographic Society, exploring the early experiments and structures that paved the way for something we all take for granted today. Visitors can see some of the earliest known photographic images such as Nicéphore Niépce’s heliographs, alongside work by some of the most influential contemporary photographers such as Martin Parr and Don McCullin.’ Drawn by Light will run until 1 March when it will move to the National Media Museum, Bradford 20 march – 21 June 2015.

Lynda Benglis / Hepworth Wakefield
Tom: ‘
Near my hometown of Leeds is the fantastic Hepworth Wakefield. As well as viewing the work of local born artist Barbara Hepworth, the current retrospective of Lynda Benglis is a must see if you’re up North. An undeniable icon of the feminist movement in the States, Benglis’ work spans everything from sculpture to photography, painting to ceramics and all points in between. Playing with her materials and their perceived qualities, the artist challenges perception and the way we look at sculpture as a static art form. Lynda Benglis at the Hepworth Wakefield runs until July 1st.

#IPHONEONLY: Julian Calverley / Snug Gallery
Cassie: LPA photographer Julian Calverley is soon to be exhibiting at Snug Gallery in the charming town of Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire. Just over the hill from my hometown of Holmfirth, I’m planning to drop in when passing by and I’m really hoping to catch him between 28 – 29th March when he will be holding informal talks and Q&A sessions. I like the parallel in Julian’s painterly landscape images being displayed in the picturesque Pennine town, which I think has such stunning landscapes of it’s own. Of course my main draw is the use of the camera phone to capture these beautiful images, which are equally as atmospheric as his signature large-scale landscapes. It’s rare that a photograph allows you to take a breath of fresh air yet Julian achieves it with each picture.

Rubens and his Legacy / Royal Academy of Arts
Lisa:I’m looking forward to seeing Rubens and his Legacy at the Royal Academy of Arts this month. Divided into six themes, the show sees his own masterpieces sitting alongside those of the many artists he influenced, from Picasso to Rembrandt. It looks to be a fascinating exhibition that demonstrates Rubens’ range and influence across art from the 17th century up to the present day.’

Christian Marclay / White Cube
Jonathon: ‘Best known for The Clock, his twenty four hour video the Guardian described as “a masterpiece of our times”, Christian Marclay is back at White Cube. This time he is showing at the cavernous Bermondsey branch with a multi-disciplinary show involving everything from video projections, animations and paintings to a series of collaborative performances with contemporary musicians. One of the main themes is booze and with Pub Crawl, Marclay documents his early morning weekend strolls through Shoreditch with a collection of half empty pint glasses, wine glasses and cans of lager. This show is in no way similar to The Clock but it’s already been billed as the show of the year by journalists.’ Christian Marclay is at White Cube Bermondsey until April 12.
