Gallery 46 in Whitechapel is our new sister gallery to be used as Londonewcastle Project Space. The new space, established through the partnership of Martin J Tickner and Sean McLusky and Fruitmachine founders, Martin Bell & Wai Hung Young breaks fresh ground for the open-source, non-conformist curatorial approach Tickner and McLusky employed at their (rightly) notorious MEN Gallery, in Shoreditch.Housed in a pair of newly renovated Georgian houses in the grounds of Whitechapel Hospital, GALLERY 46 is set over 3 floors and 8 rooms and is a kaleidoscopic addition to Whitechapel’s burgeoning gallery scene and close by its artistic...→

Londonewcastle Project Space is proud to present the first major solo show from photographer Shaniqwa Jarvis. This Charming Man is a selection of intimate portraits inspired by men who have interested and affected the artist. This collection serves as both an honest and intimate portrait of these creative and passionate men, exploring their living and working environments.
Between 2007 and 2010 Jarvis relocated from New York City to Los Angeles and finally landed in London. Throughout this period, she began to document young men who have sparked a certain curiosity in the photographer. Shot in London, LA, and New York these portraitures are the direct result of conversations between these inspirational men and Jarvis. The images expose the tensions between personal and public personas and explore the ways in which these young men live and how they express themselves.
“That bit of tomboy in me, who gravitated towards a myriad of stylish and confident men in my life, naturally pointed me as a professional in a direction towards men who mirrored this image. As the images I photographed began to shape their own story, the more aware I became of the connection and innate desire to feed the voyeur in myself with "day in the life" reportage photography. This Charming Man has enabled me to open up my subjects, my photography and myself. My hope is that it speaks to you, the viewer, as well.” –Photographer Shaniqwa Jarvis
