Exhibitions at Large Glass
"Stepping Stones: Three Photographic Journeys" connects the work of three photographers: Gerry
Johansson, Guido Guidi and Mark Ruwedel. Focusing on a specific journey by each artist, three
distinct conceptual, and personal, approaches to capturing place unfold.
Gerry Johansson realised his series Motel Prints (1983) during a coast-to-coast long trip, beginning in Los Angeles in May 1983 and ending in New York, via Utah, Colorado, Oklahoma, and Arkansas to Memphis, meeting with renow… more
Memoryscapes is a solo exhibition by the German artist Ursula Schulz-Dornburg, realised in collaboration with Lucy Rogers.
In 2012, Ursula Schulz-Dornburg travelled to north-eastern Kazakhstan to photograph the remains of the Soviet Union's largest nuclear weapons programme. Located in a vast area south-west of the city of Kurchatov, Opytnoe Pole was once a top-secret open-air laboratory, used to measure and record the devastating effects of nuclear weapons. Taken almost twenty years aft… more

to 1980 in Treviso and Pr… more
A window into contemporary Romagna photography
Otto volte due presents a selection of new and recent work by eight contemporary Romagna photographers, affording insight into the unique cultural and artistic phenomena of the region.
These photographers are part of a vibrant artistic community across a network of small towns in Emilia-Romagna. Antonello Frongia, professor of photography at Roma Tre University, writes: ‘having trained with Guido Guidi and in a fertile climate of mutual exchange, these artists, born between 1963 and 1987, hav… more
Mark Ruwedel's third solo exhibition with the gallery develops on from his on-going project Los
Angeles: Landscapes of Four Ecologies. For over three decades, Ruwedel has photographed American
deserts and wild spaces that bear traces of human intervention.
In Ruwedel's Los Angeles series, he has identified and photographed four overlapping landscape
'systems': The Rivers, The Eastern Edge (transitioning from the basin to the desert), The Hills and
Canyons, and The Western… more
Mark Ruwedel’s new exhibition at Large Glass is a selection of photographs taken from his in-progress epic Los Angeles: Landscapes of Four Ecologies, a work funded by a Guggenheim Fellowship awarded in 2014. At a time when predictions of climate catastrophe are becoming ever more frequent, these gelatin silver prints, hand printed and mounted by the artist, feel especially timely as evidence of this moment of escalating consequences, and are imbued with - in Ruwedel’s words - a &qu… more
Large Glass is delighted to present the work of American photographer Mark Ruwedel and Italian photographer Cesare Fabbri.
Mark Ruwedel will show a series photographs, which document the Los Angeles River. For over two decades, he has been photographing American deserts or the remains of abandoned railway lines in the western United States and Canada - epic places with evidence of human intervention. "His photographs of the channelized LA River, and of similar stretches of Californian hi… more
Large Glass is delighted to exhibit a selection of 27 prints by Italian Photographer Guido Guidi, to coincide with the exceptional publication "Per Strada", published by MACK at the end of October.
The via Emilia (the road) is the Roman road that runs from Milan to Rimini, via Bologna, through Guido Guidi’s home city Cesena. It is also the road that Guidi has travelled along since he was fifteen and is the thread that joins the 285 photographs, taken between 1980 and 1994, illu… more
Part 6: Guido Guidi (Roman Ruins)
In Part 6, the coin lands in Ayaş, Turkey where in 1998 Italian photographer Guido Guidi recorded, in luminous colour and contrasting black and white, the gradually changing sunlight on the Roman ruins here. Excavations of the ruins were going on at the time and it was through an archaeologist (who had participated in Guidi’s workshops) that the invitation was made.
Although these are the ruins of long gone people, ancient culture, the sense of human beings being present is strong… more
Part One: Hélène Binet (Nicholas Hawksmoor), Jean-Luc Moulène (Knots)
"Everything has a face. Everything has eyes. Everything takes a shape. Everything acts as a frame. Everything is a window. Everything shows you the world. Everything shows you itself. Everything reveals something.” (Ali Smith for 'Facciate/Facades')
Guido Guidi has said that the word Facciata (or Facade) refers to both the front of a building and the “face” of a sheet of paper, it is also the title of a series of photographs, on display here, taken by him in the… more
Seven new prints by Craigie Horsfield, portray the lives of people working with heavy machines in a factory in Krakow. The prints are derived from photographic negatives originally made in the early 1980s after Horsfield had lived and studied in Poland through the 1970s. The interlude between the initial making of the photograph and the printing is, for Horsfield about "the conception of slow time: the time it takes to make a picture is about thought and understanding and the sense of a p… more
