Our annual talent issue returns with 16 names to watch in 2018. Highlighting some of the brightest emerging photographers drawn from across four continents, we profile each one with a dedicated interview, along with comments from the global panel of experts and tastemakers who nominated them.
Among our pick of emerging artists are Martín Bollati, an Argentine photographer taking his cues from fiction, sci-fi and poetry to produce work that is purposefully open to interpretation. Elsewhere, Dat Vu returns to his birthplace in Vietnam to consider the concept of home. JD Valiente embarks on a solitary nocturnal journey, visiting the peripheries of Spanish society. Noma Osula draws on the energy of his native Lagos for his colourful narratives on Africa, and Claudia Majorana’s long-term series lends a studied gaze to adolescent play in Sicily.
“Since its inception in 2011, we’ve had ambitions to grow Ones To Watch and give a bigger platform to the selected photographers,” writes BJP’s editor Simon Bainbridge. For the first time this year, five of the talents in the issue will be on show at Peckham 24 this May, coinciding with the Photo London art fair, where we will be presenting the Talent Issue with an extended print run. We also pick our four of the best emerging galleries to watch out for at this year’s fair. And we talk to legendary curator, Thomas Weski.
