The Central London satellite group of London Independent Photography will be holding its second annual group show at the Art Pavilion in Mile End, with 17 photographers examining the theme of Slowing Down. Participating LIP members are Heloise Bergman, Angelika Berndt, Brendan Delaney, Teresa Levitt, Hugh Look, Peter Luck, Rashida Mangera, Heather Martin, Janet & John Nabney, Ingrid Newton, Stefanie Reichelt, Krystina Stimakovits, Edith Templeton, Geoff Titley, Chris Tribble and Ariadne van de Ven.

‘Slowing down’ opens up space for memories, for spirituality, for finding hidden corners of a city, for looking beyond visual clichés, for interacting with the people in front of the camera, for playing with light, for thinking about the meanings of a photograph. Here are, among other genres, still lives, nature photographs, cityscapes and portraits. Some of the photographers have slowed down the process of making pictures itself, either in the camera or in a wet or dry ‘darkroom’. This exhibition brings photographs together in wide range of themes, styles and techniques; from all over the world and through seventeen different lenses. And now, instead of being flashed across social networks, the images are on a gallery wall, forcing the viewer to slow down too.
