22nd Annual Exhibition

19-30 OCTOBER, 2010
32 John Adam Street, London WC2N 6BP


The LIP Annual Exhibition aims to provide a platform for members to exhibit their best work, to be viewed by each other and the general public. The selection process is conducted by individual professionals who are connected to London's photographic community but are not members of LIP. We go to great lengths to ensure the entire selection process is completely anonymous, giving each and every member an equal chance to exhibit. The growth of our membership in recent years means we always receive more prints than hanging space allows, so having independent selectors is the most fair way to choose representative photography by our members, year after year.


Our selectors this year come from the very heart of London's photographic community:

Lucinda Chua (The Strand Gallery, Proud Central)
Lucinda Chua is the Exhibitions officer at Proud Galleries and has worked on formulating numerous exhibitions across Proud Central, Proud Camden and Proud Chelsea. Whilst working at Proud, Lucinda has helped orchestrate and curate shows for photographers including an exhibition of Unseen Portraits by Paul Joyce, a major photographic retrospective by Ken Russell and the first UK showing of Alfred Wertheimer's Elvis at 21 series.

Aside from her time at Proud, Lucinda practises as a photographer and has exhibited internationally winning fellowships for artist residencies at the Vermont studio Center in 2008 and the Mattress Factory, Pittsburgh in 2010. In 2009 she was selected by the Arts Council England to represent the United Kingdom at the BJCEM Young Artists' Biennale in Skopje, Macedonia.

Paul Ellis (Photofusion)
Paul was always drawn towards photojournalism and photographed as many demonstrations and marches as he could, mostly in the 80s. After a postgraduate course in photojournalism he found himself in Rwanda photographing the immediate aftermath of the genocide.

On returning to London he became involved in teaching photography, and is now a teacher more than a photographer, currently specialising in lighting at Photofusion. He has been involved in many exhibitions over the years, curating diverse shows such as Facing Death: Portraits from Cambodia's Killing Fields (images of victims of the Khmer Rouge) and Jonathan Knowles, photographs by a leading still-life advertising photographer. Paul is also the owner of the Brixton Archive which consists of about 100,000 images made by Harry Jacobs, a Brixton based studio photographer, made between the mid 1950's and 1999. After two years of careful restoration a selection of 400 were exhibited at The Photographers Gallery in 2002.
