Exhibition Paul Reas: Daydreaming about the Good Times at Impressions Gallery, Bradford. Paul Reas is part of the pioneering generation of photographers who revealed and critiqued British class and culture in the 1980’s and 90’s.

Frenchman Christophe Jacrot (Born 1960, Paris) is a photographic flâneur in the finest Baudelairean sense. He continuously plunges into New York, Paris, London, or Hong Kong to photograph and bring to light the hidden, fleeting moments of the everyday in their full poetic density and romantic charisma – which he only does in rain or snow. The more stormy and terrible the weather, the more exciting and atmospheric the moment. To discover the beauty of metropolitan life in bad weather, the viewer must first take a plunge into the rain. The pictures will immediately exude a heartbreaking aura, without falling into gloom or sadness. Quite the opposite! Each metropolis shines in its own unique, rainy mood. There is a noticeable difference when the sky cries over Hong Kong versus London, or when it snows in Paris as compared to New York. The rainwater pours down bus windows, creating the ideal surface sheen for light, colors, and reflections of the street. An elegant woman’s shoe of a passerby, the sole of which glistens red above wet asphalt – Baudelaire devoted entire love poems to such fleeting moments; Jacrot presents them with perfect pictures. It is precisely these unseen moments in which life reveals all its uniqueness and beauty. The bad weather becomes the ideal bearer of longing and love. Jacrot’s subjects could be from film noir, yet they are intentionally brought to us in color.
Marsel van Oosten is a Dutch professional photographer specializing in nature and wildlife photography. Marsel’s images are known for his use of lighting, composition, color and perspective.
Marsel has been working as a successful advertising art director, and as a way to escape the rushed deadlines and pressure, he began photographing as a hobby. Five years later, Oosten makes the big decision to change his career for “the precarious life of a nature photographer, a move that demands unyielding devotion and commitment.” And he said, “My images are most known for composition, lighting, color and perspective. In my work I try to simplify, to get rid of the extraneous: Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”
Today, nearly 215 million children work in the world, many of them full time. These children do not attend school and have no time to play. Many do not receive proper care and feeding. They are denied the opportunity to be children. More than half of these children are exposed to the worst forms of child labor such as work in hazardous environments, slavery, and other forms of forced labor, illicit activities including drug trafficking and prostitution and involuntary participation in armed conflict .

Late Hungarian photojournalist Paul Almásy traveled across the globe, capturing images of people from all walks of life around the world. Over the course of his career, which spanned more than 60 years, Almásy spent multiple decades documenting the intimate and quaint beauty of Paris and its people. His images are an ode to the city, bearing the photographer’s own love for Parisian culture and lifestyle.
The photographer’s joyful and romantic portraits reveal a sense of life that Parisians in the mid-20th century lived—one filled with simple, daily pleasures. From youths merrily playing instruments and dancing in public parks and streets to older couples taking a moment to get lost in each other’s eyes, there’s an undeniable air about the city of love that transcends time.
