just over a year ago i went to an exhibition in ealing by the ealing group of london independent photography. i subsequently joined the group, have made a bundle of new friends, learned and been inspired loads, hopefully improved my photos, sold a couple of photos, had a few in books and have exhibited in 5 exhibitions...
the ealing group have their annual show coming up from august 1 to the end of september at gunnersbury house in gunnersbury park museum. called on your doorstep, 15 photographers explore ealing and hounslow. one of the panels is mine and i have chosen to show a series of four photos on the journey in the fog i blogged about in december as ealing parks seems to have been the main ealing photos i have taken on my doorstep this year. the photos in the show are really good all round. sadly i can't make the private view this sunday as i am at the big chill. if any of you are interested in going to that (the private view not the big chill!) feel free as my guest.
here's the blurb...
Often, there’s no time for more than a quick glance at the people and places that form our landscape - and the world on our doorstep can become merely a familiar backdrop to our busy lives.
But a second look may reveal something surprising; an interesting detail in a piece of architecture, an extraordinary face in the crowd, or the discovery of an unexpected element in the things we’d normally take for granted.
In this new exhibition, 15 photographers from the Ealing LIP group show us what they saw when they had a closer look at their local area.
Open daily from Friday 1st August until Friday 26th September 2008, 11am to 4pm.
At Gunnersbury Park Museum, Gunnersbury Park,
Popes Lane, London, W3 8LQ
The entrance is on Popes Lane, near the junction with Gunnersbury Avenue (A40). Acton Town is the nearest underground (District or Piccadilly Line) or E3 bus. There is wheelchair access to all public areas.
the sporting ealing exhibition is still running as well until end of august and is receiving great feedback.
