Philip Blenkinsop – And Then There Were None
On the occasion of PHOTO VOGUE FESTIVAL in Milan – opening week 22-26 November 2016 – LINKE presents “And Then There Were None”, solo exhibition dedicated to Philip Blenkinsop.
It is not possible to imagine a contemporary vision of Asia in which Blenkinsop’s images do not play a significant role. Indeed, he has carved his own path. “A man of guerrillas and of resistances” and “one of the most essential photographers of his generation” is how others have spoken of him. From the Southern plains of Nepal, through India, China, Burma, Borneo, the Jungles of Cambodia, to the Mountains of East Timor and Thailand’s Southern Insurgency, the installation speaks of an odyssey, compelling yet seductively ambiguous in this fragmentary incarnation. His offering to us evokes a tangible fresco of life’s struggle; a dark romanticism that will haunt the viewer long after the photographs drift to the subconscious.
