Adventures around Brick Lane and the Old Truman Brewery

So I moved to London recently and am still very much exploring the city and finding new and exciting Art galleries and exhibitions. Last Sunday I was lucky enough to explore Brick lane for the first time and can’t wait to go back with my camera, particularly after visiting the International Print Exhibition 158 at the Old Truman Brewery just around the corner. The exhibition comes from the Royal photographic Society withScreen Shot 2015-10-16 at 10.13.22 the selection of 100 unique and powerful photographs across a range of genres and subject matter. My personal favourite was the Bronze award winner, “Comfort zone #1” from the series, “Comfort zone” by Tadao Cern.  The photograph is not staged yet appears too perfect  to not be staged but at the same time feels 100% authentic and real. I think the photograph really evokes a mixture of feelings with the sense that we are intruding but at the same time aware that this is a public space and we are then reassured that these women are content and relaxed. It serves to remind us of the very few public places that we do feel able to be ourselves, to be content, relaxed and oblivious to our surroundings.

All the photos were fantastic, beautiful and unique, some were absolutely unbelievable in terms of their timing! the exhibition has now moved to The Royal Albert Hall and is well worth a visit if you’re looking for some photography inspiration.  Here are few more of my favourites below, enjoy!
