Since 1970, Flowers Gallery has provided a platform for British talent in the contemporary art world. The gallery now represents more than forty artists working in a range of media, across a variety of international locations. Photography has constituted a central part of the work exhibited at Flowers since its inception. In the last two decades, Flowers has extended its involvement with artists working in photography, representing the likes of Edward Burtynsky, whose large-scale environmental photographs strike an intricate balance between documentary and powerfully seductive aesthetics; Robert Polidori, author of epic bodies of work capturing grandeur and decay in Havana, Versailles, Chernobyl and a post-Katrina New Orleans; and Nadav Kander, a world-renowned UK-based photographer and winner of the 2010 Prix Pictet.
At Unseen, Flowers Gallery will showcase never seen works by Nadav Kander (1961), Mona Kuhn (1969) and Geir Moseid (1978), and work by Glen Erler and Julie Cockburn (1966). Work by Nadav Kander will also be on display in a large group photography show, Uncommon Ground, on display from 12 July until 1 September at the gallery space in Shoreditch, East London. The exhibition "aims to obscure the intersection between photographs of observed reality and artistically altered reality." Work will be exhibited by a selection of represented and invited artists including Peter Ainsworth, Edward Burtynsky, Scarlett Hooft Graafland and Simon Roberts.
