29/08/14I've visited three exhibitions this month, all quite different but all equally interesting.
The first was the Travel Photographer of the Year at the Royal Geographic Society in Kensington Gore. It comprised of the shortlisted entries to the 2013 competition and it inspired me to submit some prints of my own into two categories for this years exhibition… I'm not holding my breath but my fingers are crossed just a little!
Second exhibition was called 'India's Forgotten Children' with images by Peter Knight exhibited at the Crypt beneath St Martin's in the Field. The pictures were a mix of excellent portraits of children who spend their days searching for rubbish on massive waste tips to make money from and also those lucky enough to have access to some limited schooling. Many of the children are considered of such a low caste that people do not even acknowledge them, let alone talk to them. It was very moving.
The final exhibition is still on and does not close until the 20th of September. It is called 'Silent Exchange' and features landscape photographs by Charlie Waite in the Lyttelton Gallery in the National Theatre in South Bank. We have travelled to many of the places that Charlie Waite has been to which makes his work even more impressive as we can really appreciate the difficulty in achieving the amazing images he has taken - EXHIBITION LINK
