Rut Blees Luxemburg is an artist who works with photography. She explores cities and their complex relationships to modernity via the potential of the public space. The cities she has worked in range from London, Paris, Dakar, Swansea to Santiago. Her work has been exhibited internationally and included in key publications and exhibitions on contemporary photography.

"My photographic work explores the continuing significance of the modern project on the city. My photographs aim to bring to the fore the underlying contradictions of the Modern Project, its ambitions and its poetic and real failures which are recast as potential. My particular interest lies in revealing moments where this history appears in dense yet coded layers, within the physical forms of a location.

As part of my artistic work I often collaborate with other practitioners, such as writers, architects, composers and philosophers. Recently I curated an exhibition of contemporary photography in London, titled Albertine goes South. This exhibition gathered together 5 contemporary photographers that engage with irreverent, twisted and fantastical notions of domesticity."

Helen Sear’s photographic practice has developed from a Fine Art background of performance, film and installation work made in the 1980’s. Her photographs became widely known in the 1991 British Council exhibition, De-Composition: Constructed Photography in Britain, which toured Latin America and Eastern Europe. Born in England in 1955 she continues to explore ideas of vision and the re-presentation of the nature of experience through lens based media and digital technologies. In 1993 she received an Abbey Award at the British School at Rome and recent exhibitions include Grounded an Impressions Gallery touring show, Spot at the Yard Gallery Nottingham and Hide at Ffotogallery’s Turner House. Her work was included in the exhibition About Face at the Hayward Gallery in summer 2004.
