Shener Hathaway
Photographer

Born in Hackney, London in 1963, it was my time traveling in the mid 1980s where my interest in photography first began. Studying at London College of Printing between 1988/89, my final exhibition resulted in being offered a degree. However, my passion was to travel and, from 1990/1992, I travelled throughout South east Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Canada and USA focusing on building my portfolio of personal work.

My solo/group exhibitions and publications include: the 1989 Traveling Group Exhibition with the Royal Photographic Society: Representation between 1998 & 2002 by the Special Photographers Company Notting Hill where, in addition to, fine art print sales from the Royal Mint, Icon and Wizard & Genius, works were commissioned for various book and CD covers world-wide.

Further commissions include, Motor Magazines, Australia, the Mayor of Lewisham, and various mainstream editorial publications.

With a deep concern about the changing face of London, I felt challenged to find, often hidden, locations that still resembled the older parts of the city. A nostalgic exploration from a contemporary perspective reflects in many of my images.

Experimenting with vintage cameras from the turn-of-the-century, and using Kodak film which expired as far back as 1948, gives an atmospheric and impressionistic but highly original view of the subject matter. Work from a series of immersive projects over the last few years, is currently being collated for inclusion in a series of books to be published in the near future.

Being fully responsible for my images from camera, darkroom and print to the final ‘on the wall’ stage, gives me both practical and artistic control over my work, particularly in relation to presentation. My aim is to be able to record both my artistic passion and the world around me through my lens.

  • Maggie Lee: Magazine
    Feb 10 – May 20, 2024
    Kunsthalle Zürich
    Zürich, Switzerland
    The exhibition Magazine was born out of the artist’s long-held desire to publish her own magazine – a very personal magazine that would nonetheless circulate further than just her own circle of friends. Maggie Lee’s passion for this medium of distribution was inspired by her work in copy stores, and above all by creating zines since her teenage years in New Jersey. There is a special appeal to the creative self-realisation in self-publishing (more…)
  • Erwin Wurm: Surrogates
    Feb 15 – Apr 13, 2024
    Thaddaeus Ropac
    London, UK
    Surrogates, an exhibition of new work by Erwin Wurm, embodies the Austrian artist’s characteristically explorative approach to the concept of sculpture. Disrupting traditional distinctions between subject and object, the human and the non-human, spectator and participant, the exhibition renders the familiar unfamiliar through a playful treatment of the sculptural principles of ‘two- and three-dimensionality, mass, volume, skin and surface, movement and time.’ (more…)
