London Photography Festival – The Great British Public
I’m really excited to be exhibiting in the years London Festival of Photography; The flagship show, ‘The Great British Public‘, will take place across two venues – a main exhibition at The Dog Eared Gallery and a smaller selection in St. Pancras International station as part of their ‘Best of British’ Event.
‘The Great British Public’ promises to be a fascinating show, with established international artists (Martin Parr, Zed Nelson, Chris Steele-Perkins) exhibiting alongside emerging photographers like myself. The exhibition is described as follows:
Embracing the spirit of patriotism with the upcoming Olympics and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, this show will present images from photographers working the length and breadth of the British Isles documenting the daily life, work and rituals of the British in their many incarnations.
I will be showing a selection of work from my series ‘Higher Lands’ a study on youth culture and identity in the Highlands of Scotland that I undertook in 2007-2008. It’s great to be finally exhibiting photographs from this body of work; Prior to this it has only been featured in french magazine Le Tigre.
The exhibition runs from the 1st June – 24th June, with admission at £6.50. There’s more information on the London Festival of Photography Website – including artist Bio’s and an event schedule.
