On Friday evening I was lucky enough to open a collaborative exhibition with fellow photographers John Umney and Keith Greenough in Bethnal Green. The work was collectively titled Oxford House, Nexus and features work by all three of us. My series of images was also a collaboration within the overall project, as I worked with a super young woman called Honor.
Yesterday, as I narrated my story about how I had, several years ago, dreamed of having some work up on a gallery wall which at the time seemed rather like a pipe dream, the woman I was telling welled up. She said it was lovely to hear from someone achieving something. My work has been interpreted by another friend as being all about achievement, and since the venue, Oxford House is linked through its history to Keble College, Oxford University, and to uplifting the lives of the people it serves, I suspect she is on to something.
The venue is a valuable part of its community, and therefore of London. Sales from the exhibition will be added to funds earmarked for the refurbishment of this important historic site. I hope that if you find yourself in the vicinity you can spare some time to visit, and perhaps even make a purchase.
Should anyone be looking for something interesting and original to hang on their walls, here are the details you’ll need:
