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.

The Curated Fridge is the brainchild of Yorgos Efthymiadis, a unique project with the aim of celebrating fine art photography and connecting photographers from around the world.

This exhibition was guest curated by Elin Spring – founder, editor and head writer of the photography blog “What Will You Remember?”, featuring exhibit reviews, curator and artist interviews, book reviews and commentary.

Here’s a photograph of The Curated Fridge in its entirety – my photograph is on the bottom door. You can see all of the photographer’s work on their websitefacebook page, and on their instagram feed.

Here’s also a link to their lovely video of afternoon shadows  coincidentally framing my image of afternoon shadows on the bottom door:  https://www.facebook.com/pg/thecuratedfridge/videos/

My photograph is from a sketch-series of images exploring the light, shadows, and layers of reflections that appear momentarily in my everyday environment, documenting the juxtaposition of plants and trees – cultivated and wild – with built structures.

To find out more about The Curated Fridge take a look at this interesting article on Lenscratch.

Thank you Yorgos and Elin for including my work in this show!

 

 

Obsolete and Discontinued in Cologne

The Obsolete and Discontinued project that I am participating in is exhibiting in Cologne, Germany this winter.

Led by the amazing London based photographer, printer, and alternative processes expert Mike Crawford the project celebrates the unique features and potential of analogue photography, using out of date and discontinued photographic papers, some of which were 20-30 years old.

The project features work by about 50 photographic artists all over the world, including members of the London Alternative Photography Collective.  This is my image, a contact print from an iphone5s photograph.
