Keld Helmer-Petersen at Rocket
The Rocket Gallery in London recently published a new book by the nonagenarian photographer, Keld Helmer-Petersen, and has just announced an accompanying exhibition of the Danish artist's work...
Back to Black is the latest book from the Rocket Gallery's publishing arm and features a collection of some of Helmer-Petersen's most experimental work to date – certainly his most extensive work with digital manipulation and distortion.
Until April 22, the Rocket Gallery will be staging an exhibition of Helmer-Petersen's work and books from 1951-2012, including images from Back to Black.
For further information and details on purchasing Back to Black, email Jonathan Stephenson on firstname.lastname@example.org (the book is limited to 800 copies, £25 each; 100 signed editions are available at £35).
The Rocket Gallery is based in the Tea Building, 56 Shoreditch High Street, London E1 6JJ and open Tuesday to Friday (10am-6pm); Saturday and Sunday (12pm-pm). More at rocketgallery.com.
I have been an admirer of Keld Helmer Petersen since 2005, when I viewed his first UK exhibition at the Rocket Gallery. To say the least the man's vision is amazing. His black and white and also his colour work is thought provoking considering the mundane subject matter that he chooses to photograph. It is so pleasing that a master photographer of his status is finally being given the recognition he deserves.
