i love the new photographers gallery in london (well technically it's the old one moved to a new venue). it's become one of my places to meet people if i am anywhere near oxford circus. although oxford street is really busy because this is slightly off the main track, the cafe is a bit quieter than anything else around there. last week i met andrew jones there and, mission geek that he is, he spotted a piece on mission in the exhibition on photography in soho. he even snapped photos of the magazines featuring what we might call missional church in 1955. andrew has blogged the pics and story .
on the subject of mission and photography there is a showcase on the london independent photography site of mark denton who has a series called missionaries which is described like this...
he describes himself as an athiest so it is interesting seeing how he comes to view something like this to capture it in images. i'm not actually sure what the group is - anyone know?
this missionary theme reminded me (and i'm not going to try and explain the connection in my brain) of nic's provocative post before christmas narnia über alles !
