Christopher Sims

In 2010, he was selected as the recipient of the Baum Award for Emerging American Photographers. Christopher currently teaches photography at the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University.

“In 2007, I made a series of portraits at the “Virtual Army Experience,” a traveling road show and recruiting event the U.S. Army takes cross-country to NASCAR races and air shows. Participants wait in line to enter a large tent, where they play video games produced by the army and meet decorated soldiers who have returned from service at the fronts in Iraq and Afghanistan. These portraits remind us of the computer and television screens through which most of us have lived the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The army reveals itself to be a keen reader of American adolescent emotions and passions, and employs this understanding through a brilliantly designed and bloodless simulation of the thrill of the fight. The portraits also offer us a glimpse into a future that some leaders and strategists have begun calling “the long war,” and suggest to us the young people who will enlist in the coming years in the real army.”

Tate Modern's current exhibition offers a fascinating glimpse into the world of voyeurism and surveillance.

With photographs dating back to the late-19th Century, 'Exposed' offers a fascinating look at pictures made without the explicit permission of the people depicted. With photographs from the late nineteenth century to present day, the images present a shocking, illuminating and witty perspective on famous people and taboo subjects.

Beginning with the idea of the 'unseen photographer', 'Exposed' presents 250 works by celebrated artists and photographers including Brassaï's erotic Secret Paris of the 1930s images; Weegee's iconic photograph of Marilyn Monroe; and Nick Ut's reportage image of children escaping napalm attacks in the Vietnam War. Sex and celebrity is an important part of the exhibition, presenting photographs of Liz Taylor and Richard Burton, Paris Hilton on her way to prison and the assassination of John F Kennedy. Other renowned photographers represented in the show include Guy Bourdin, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Philip Lorca DiCorcia, Walker Evans, Robert Frank, Nan Goldin, Lee Miller, Helmut Newton and Man Ray.

Much of 'Exposed' focuses on surveillance, including works by both amateur and press photographers, and images produced using automatic technology such as CCTV. The issues raised are particularly relevant, with debates raging on the rights of individuals and the increasing use of surveillance. 'Exposed' confronts these issues and their implications head-on.

Exposed: Voyeurism, Surveillance and the Camera can be seen at the Tate Modern in London from today until 3 October 2010.

“German Faces”, da artista americana Collier Schorr, é a exposição que marca o arranque do PhotoEspaña, o festival de fotografia e artes visuais da capital espanhola, que estendeu mais uma vez até ao Museu Colecção Berardo parte da sua programação.
No último ano como comissário do festival, o português Sérgio Mah escolheu trazer a Lisboa o trabalho meticuloso que Schorr tem vindo a desenvolver ao longo das últimas duas décadas na cidade alemã de Schwäbisch Gmünd, um conjunto que junta fotografia, vídeo, desenho colagem e que aborda as marcas da história e da memória nos lugares e nos gestos do quotidiano.
As questões em torno da história, da memória colectiva e da identidade social têm ocupado o centro das suas preocupações estéticas e conceptuais, num imaginário que oscila por diferentes géneros documentais e ficcionais.

Each of these images contain dozens to several hundred separate photographs. Shot in fragments, the puzzle pieces were reconstructed one by one and reworked to create a unique narrative space that never actually happened, where the whole traveled mysteriously further than what the camera documented. Part memory, part imagination, not unlike the way we see.
