Metro Imaging are proud to be partnering with SATORI to offer visual artists the chance to win a tailored Mentorship Award, which will support them with professional development, career direction, and industry insight.

SATORI is a creative forum to share work, thoughts, feelings, inspirations, fears, opinions and more.

Each issue begins with a simple theme and a short piece of text; together they serve as an open brief to a diverse group of contributors from a variety of different backgrounds.

SATORI Issue Three –The Issue of ‘Aesthetics’ (a set of principles concerned with the nature and appreciation of beauty) will feature over 100 pages of original content from acclaimed writers including Alison Bean, Rebecca Pearson, Pico Iyer, BJ Miller, and Ken Hollings, and an amazing selection of art and photography from Sam Copeland, Chiara Zonca, Alberrán Cabrera, and Evan D’Arpino to name but a few.

The launch event for Issue Three of SATORI will take place the Thursday 9th August 6-8 pm at The Photographers’ Gallery, 16 – 18 Ramillies Street, London W1F 7LW.

An edition of limited prints, courtesy of Metro Imaging, will be given away with the first 50 copies sold, as part of the new partnering, and the Metro x SATORI Mentorship Award will be officially announced.

Supporters of the NOA Award 17, a not for profit art charity Award, offering the Metro Mentorship Prize.

The Copenhagen-based collective Sara, Peter & Tobias, winners of the International Photography Award 2018, will be showing their award-winner series The Merge, at the British Journal of Photographys’ International Photography Award  (BJP IPA) 2018 exhibition, opening with the PV on Thursday 12th July 2018 at TJ Boulting.

Metro Imaging was delighted to once again work with the BJP and TJ Boutling, sponsoring the exhibition with the full production of all C-type prints and bespoke frames for the show.

The Merge explores and visually interprets the possibility that our reality does not exist as we believe it to, but that instead, we live in a simulation. Could it be that our world is just a construct – a created illusion?

The Merge visually entertains the simulation theory. It artistically investigates what consequences supercomputers, artificial intelligence and robots have on our future society. By looking at interactions between man and machine it explores how this accelerated digitized paradigm will affect our emotional, social and moral norms.

The project employs an array of photographic tools to document human existence as we move rapidly towards a point in history where physical and digital worlds will become so intertwined, that it will be impossible to distinguish between the two. The time is now for documenting how the revolution of artificial intelligence and robotics is rapidly changing our world, real or not.

The Merge aims to debate the subject’s complexity and the images balance between realism and imagination, leaving space for multiple interpretations and engaging a dialogue with the audience about the landscape of our future: If life is a simulation, where should we look to understand the world we live in?


Private View: Thursday 12th July 2018, 6.30 – 8.30pm
