A reminder that the Museum of London’s excellent exhibition, London Street Photography 1860-2010, is now on and runs until September 2011. I am lucky enough to be one of the 59 photographers chosen to represent the genre.
Over 200 images are featured, and photographers include Paul Martin, Laszlo Moholy Nagy, Humphrey Spender, Wolf Suschitzky, Bert Hardy, Roger Mayne, Tony Ray-Jones, John Benton Harris, Paul Trevor and Stephen McLaren.
In-Public are well represented, with Richard Bram, Adrian Fisk, David Gibson, Nils Jorgensen, David Solomons, Matt Stuart and Nick Turpin all included.
Entrance is free and the show has proved so popular that a timed ticketing system is currently in operation during weekends and school holidays. “Tickets can be collected from the Museum front desk on arrival, tickets cannot be prebooked. Entry to the exhibition remains free, please allow extra time for your visit.”
See the Museum of London’s site for more details
A short film featuring Matt Stuart, Polly Braden, Wolfgang Suschitzky and Paul Trevor is being shown alongside the exhibition, and there is a slideshow of further contemporary photographs including several of my own works of humble genius
Finally, there is a rather splendid hardback book showcasing the photos from the exhibition available at Amazon and larger bookshops. A softback version is available at the show itself (I think it’s still available).
The exhibition is curated by Mike Seaborne and Anna Sparham.
