London Independent Photography is a community organisation for amateur and professional photographers with more than 500 members. Our activities are designed to bring together photographers with different interests and levels of expertise who wish to develop their personal approach to photography, improve their skills and gain recognition for their work. The LIP Annual Exhibition, now in its 29th year, provides a platform for members to exhibit their best work to be shared with a wider public audience.
A series of talks and events will feature throughout the exhibition period, with leading figures from the photographic world including: Dewi Lewis the celebrated photobook publisher; Simon Roberts, an outstanding landscape photographer with an emphasis on human geography; Tanya Houghton, presenting her project ‘A Migrant’s Tale’ – a collection of narrative explorations told through the language of food; a panel discussion on ‘The Street Today’, and more.

A huge thanks to London Independent Photography and Gemma Barnett of The Photographers Galleryfor selecting my work, and I can’t wait to see all the brilliant photography on display.
The Photographers’ Gallery was founded in 1971 as the first public gallery in the UK dedicated to the medium. It remains a leader in the presentation and exploration of photography in all its forms. It has been instrumental in promoting photography’s pivotal and influential role in culture and society and ensuring its position as a significant art form.
Update – after the exhibition…
It was great to take part in this year’s exhibition. I was also invited to be part of the presentation and panel discussion on The Street Today, with award winning mobile phone photographer Olly Lang, course leader of Goldsmiths International MA in Photography and Urban Cultures Paul Halliday, and the wonderful John Comino-James. I really enjoyed learning about their different approaches and also sharing my own work and views on Street Photography.
So here’s a MASSIVE thanks to everyone at London Independent Photography for the award and the opportunity to be involved. Here’s a photo of my prints in situ:
