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...→

Since they were founded in 2001 by Gigi Giannuzzi, [Trolley Books] has been highly regarded as a maverick independent publisher of photography, reportage, contemporary art and recently, literature.
To celebrate the first ten years of award-winning publishing Trolley Books now presents TROLLEYOLOGY – a multi-media exhibition in Shoreditch, the original home of Trolley. The exhibition, running over two weekends, will also contain previously unseen material from the making of the books, including personal images, contact sheets and photographers' recollections, documenting the unique stories from each book and the importance of this small but potent publishing house.
The exhibition brings together Trolley photographers such as Nan Goldin, Alex Majoli, Stanley Greene, Paolo Pellegrin, Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin, Tom Stoddart, Nina Berman, Thomas Dworzak, Alixandra Fazzina, Robin Maddock, and Jamie Morgan.
It also includes contributions from wider members of the Trolley family such as the artists Paul Fryer, Sarah Lucas, Polly Morgan, Mat Collishaw, Le Gun and writers Sean O Hagan, Julian Stallabrass and cultural historian Barry Miles.
Trolley’s founder Gigi Giannuzzi is a well-known figure in the publishing and photographic industries for his original and dynamic approach to photobook publishing as well as his unrelenting support of important but underexposed stories. Never shying away from a project, Gigi has had many long working relationships and friendships with the photographers that he has published.
One of the most significant being with the renowned former president of Magnum and Vietnam war photographer, Philip Jones Griffiths, who published three books with Trolley.
Usually touching on abuses of power and human rights, publishing with Trolley is more than just making books, each photographer or writer has a unique story of their journey to print.
Sadly Gigi passed away on 24th December 2012, so this exhibition is also an opportunity to celebrate his unique vision and achievements. [Read an obituary here].
The exhibition will bring together the unorthodox vision and passion that has consumed Trolley Books over the past ten years and sets the bar unimaginably high for the next ten.
