Artist Talk / Q&A
On the occasion of his series “Supermarket checkouts” in the Jahresausgaben show, we welcome Nigel Shafran for the first time in Munich in the Lothringer13 to a lecture and discussion.
Shafran (’64) is one of the UK’s most notable contemporary photographers.
“Nigel Shafran’s observation-led photography began to influence the scope of contemporary photography in the late 1980s on the pages of The Face and i-D. As part of a unique grouping of talented image-makers based in London, which included Corinne Day, David Sims, Wolfgang Tillmans and Juergen Teller, Shafran breathed new and authentic life into the genre of fashion. He is most well known for his independent photographic work, which makes subtle narratives from everyday life. He has published eight books including Ruthbook, Dad’s Office, Flowers for _____ , Ruth on the phone and Teenage Precinct Shoppers. Shafran has exhibited internationally and his photographs have been collected by the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Arts Council Collection [England]. Shafran has recently created still life and portrait editorial work for magazines including Love, The New York Times Style Magazine, WSJ. Magazine, and Vogue UK. He has been commissioned by Hermès, Loewe, Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, Smythson, and the Victoria and Albert Museum.”
