The Carmignac Foundation presents an exhibition of works by the Iranian photographer Newsha Tavakolian , 5th winner of the Carmignac Photojournalism Award, at the Chapelle des Beaux-Arts de Paris from 13 May to 7 June 2015.
Taking as their common thread the theme of a family photo album, her photographs depict young middle-class people caught between the contradictory pressures of an increasingly modern society and an Islamic revolutionary ideology.
From May 6 through July 12, 2015 the Bank Austria Kunstforum Wien is dedicating a major retrospective show to the Austrian artist Hubert Schmalix . The exhibition focuses on his current paintings, but also includes selected earlier works.
Schmalix has painted two major new work series for the exhibition rooms of the Kunstforum. Firstly, delicate female nudes are interwoven with spacious carpet patterns – a painterly alternation scintillating between figurative corporeality and ornamental plane. On the other hand, Schmalix’s gouaches on cardboard are characterised by a more open and thus painterly touch in classical-romantic style.
Works by photographer Andrew Phelps are on view at Anzenberger Gallery in Vienna from May 7 through July 31, 2015.
In his documentary projects Higley and Haboob Andrew Phelps shows the rise and fall of his hometown Higley. Once surrounded by farmland, the town was increasingly influenced by the rapid growth of the nearby metropolis Phoenix. The boom was followed by degradation due to the consequences of the real estate and financial crisis and severe sandstorms, called “Haboobs”.
From March 20 March through July 5, 2015 works by of the Japanese photographer Rinko Kawauchi will be on view at the Kunsthaus Wien .
Rinko Kawauchi is creating a new body of work for this exhibition, for which the artist undertook a voyage to Austria in December 2014. Her search for the special – for the essence of the world – led her to a gold smelting plant and to the glaciers of the Dachstein Mountain, among others.
From March 7 through June 7, 2015 works by Hannah Collins, winner of the “SPECTRUM” International Prize for Photography 2015, will be on view at Sprengel Museum Hannover .
Following trails laid by her own biography, Hannah Collins, the daughter of a Polish Jew, has as her theme the plight of the homeless and the displaced. Her work marries the performative with the documentary in images of interiors and exteriors, situations and objects of great poetical strength, a strength that feeds on a dissolve of inward landscapes and outward realities.
The exhibition will be showing a selection of her works. The exhibition will be accompanied by the first German-language monograph to provide a comprehensive introduction to her complex photographic oeuvre.
Awarded by the Foundation of Lower Saxony, the “SPECTRUM” International Prize for Photography pays tribute to the significance of photography as a modern medium of artistic expression.

The Musée Nicéphore Niépce , Chalon-sur-Saône, France and the Fotomuseum Antwerp will show works by the American photographer Jeffrey Silverthorne.
For 45 years, Jeffrey Silverthorne has been working steadily on an extensive body of work. Jeffrey Silverthorne’s work is a contemporary answer to the ancient quests of vanity. The exhibitions not only show an overview of the artist’s diverse visual languages, but also a wide range of unseen series.
Musée Nicéphore Niépce, Chalon-sur-Saône, France:
October 18, 2014 – January 18, 2015

More than 200 photographs, supplemented by documentary material, including journals, magazines, books, advertisements, brochures, and camera prototypes, will recount the history of 35mm photography from its beginnings to the present day. Among the featured photographers are those who are internationally known for their work with Leica cameras as well as amateurs and artists who have not yet been widely associated with small-format photography.
Works by photographer Mila Teshaieva will be on view at Haggerty Museum of Art in Milwaukee from January 22 through May 31, 2015.
For over four years, Mila Teshaieva has documented the transformation of the three former Soviet republics on the shores of the Caspian Sea: Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan. The photos of her series Promising Waters leave the viewer with unanswered questions as to the relationship between the state and private identity, the ties between past, present and future, and how to pinpoint the boundary between a region’s rise or fall.
