We at Bill Charles Represents are excited to share with you a preview of the latest edition of Pocko Times– Light Works.
Following the previous two editions of the Pocko Times, an oversized annual art journal, this latest edition chronicles the work of arguably the world’s most important photographers in the fields of documentary, staged and fine-art photography. In addition, Light Works will feature extracts from “Living in the End Times” by Slavoj Žižek, the controversial and eccentric political philosopher, considered ‘the most dangerous philosopher in the West’. In his book Žižek discusses the end of Western capitalism and asks what the West must do to adapt to the society of the future. Such issues are raised within the work of Light Works, where photographers capture the very essence and importance of the photographic image in modern- day society, and explore how the medium communicates to the world. Through a selection of iconic photographic works, some unseen and some classics, this edition of Pocko Times encapsulates a reflection of our age through photography, exhibiting the aesthetics of celebrity culture, pornography, media, conflict, poverty and wealth.
