25th Annual Exhibition
22 OCTOBER - 3 NOVEMBER 2013
Welcome to London Independent Photography’s milestone 25th Annual Exhibition! Each year this is the highlight of our group's calendar - a must-see event for anyone interested and involved with photography in London. Our 2013 exhibition ran 22nd October - 3rd November at The Strand Gallery, located in the heart of the West End.
This year we received approximately 800 submissions from LIP members, with 108 images accepted for exhibition from 65 photographers. The prints were selected by Francis Hodgson, Colin Pantall and Roelof Bakker, and showcase the extraordinary diversity and breadth of talent within our group. The impartial selection process is key to the exhibition’s success, as every LIP member has an equal chance to exhibit.
The following is a preview of selected work from the exhibition:
