I’ve been in London this week and happily discovered my visit coincided with East London Photomonth which has given me the opportunity to visit some fantastic (and free) photography events around the city. My favourites so far have been the:
Getty Images Gallery’s London Through A Lens showcasing some fantastic black and white images of London past and present.
The Cheka Kidogo (Swahili meaning “laugh a little”) portrait series featuring portraits of refugees in the Democratic Rebuplic of Congo taken by renowned celebrity portrait photographer Rankin working with Oxfam.
Landscape Photographer of the Year 2008 on display at the National Theatre (technically this one doesn’t start until Sunday but most of the photographs are already on display). To see some of last year’s winner click here.
The Conflict and Contrast: A Remembrance Day exhibition in the.gallery@oxo in the Oxo Wharf Tower showcasing images from the Defense Image Database (an official Ministry of Defense website – definitely worth a look).
If you happen to be in London through November I highly recommend checking out some of the more than 100 photography exhibitions taking place for Photomonth but even if you’re nowhere near Britain’s capital click on some of the links and check out some amazing photography across a wide range of subjects.
