Yesterday ‘I did’ Photo London at Somerset House.
Or rather should I say that Photo London ‘did me’. Now in its second year, Photo London is huge and I mean huge. There are around 480 photographers’ works on display which for me was both a problem and an opportunity.
I probably have a low visual capacity when it comes to exhibitions. After looking closely at around 50 or some images, my capacity to absorb seems to decline rapidly. That’s why something like Photo London is a problem for me. But it was also an opportunity. An opportunity to scoot around and see what was really different. And there was a lot of that. Here’s list of just some of the artists that caught my eye:
- Luis Gonzalez Palma (gold leaf landscape)
- Davide Monteleore (seascape)
- Rene Burri
- Andrey Tarkovsky (scanned Polaroids)
- Dmitry Konradt
- Stephen Vanfleteren (seascapes)
- Gian Paul Lozza (Backyard Japan)
- Ellie Davies
- Julie Monaco
- Craigie Horsfield
- Stephen Gill
- Kazuna Taguchi
- Eeva Karhu
- Jorma Puranen
- Ian McKeever
- Hiroshi Sugimoto
- David Mansel
And yes, I’ll be going next year.
