Gareth Davies and Meirion Harries in Rivers, Lakes and 42nd Street

Rivers, Lakes, and 42nd Street is a meeting of energies: the confluence of two rivers. The first, the waterways of England, ripples across Gareth Davies’s panoramic images; the other, the urban flow of 42nd Street, New York, is glimpsed through the shutter of Meirion Harries’s street photography. Two 
very different styles produce a unified effect – the familiar caught at an odd angle, made strange, made new.

Runs 12 – 20 March 2018

Elizabeth Katsamaki: Portraits and Figures of Light

This charity exhibition aims to highlight the meaning of life, its light and shadows, and through the contrast to demonstrate the ability of the human soul to find its wings away from materialism.

Dedicated to the people of Brazil for their ability to always find the colorful rainbow in the rain, the exhibition aims to raise social and spiritual awareness. The series of photos taken in Brazil are presented in two sections: real life in the favelas, and the dreamy beaches of Rio de Janeiro. Through a journey in the socio-economic aspects of a country characterized by disparity, the images depict an unparalleled sense of happiness, warmth, and deep joy for living – emerging not as a result of materialistic abundance, but from an undying passion for life.

Supported by the Brazilian Embassy in London, funds raised support Action Aid UK and help fight poverty in Brazil.

Anita Strasser in A Neighbours’ Event

A neighbours’ event: building community through socially-engaged photography

This exhibition features two projects which set out to facilitate community networks in two different neighbourhoods. Where the documentation of life in a hidden courtyard in Slovenia’s capital Ljubljana resulted in an outdoor exhibition / party organised by the local community, the action research-based participatory project in a block of flats in Deptford, south-east London, engaged neighbours in building up a shared dialogue through repeated collective activity such as beautifying communal spaces. Both projects involved the use of photography as a researching tool, with the understanding that the process of collaborative image-making and the sharing and gifting of generated research material has the potential to develop the visceral experience of community such as trust, familiarity and belonging. The repeated encounters with neighbours generated through this participatory process helped facilitate recognition, regular small-talk and feeling better about living there.

Runs 1 November 2017 – 31 January 2018
