The World in London

July 26, 2012

The Photographer’s Gallery launched yesterday the exhibition The World in London.

In The World in London, 204 people from the 204 nations taking part in the Olympics 2012 are captured by 204 photographers.

There are some great portraits and the photographers commissioned include JH Engström (Georgia), Pieter Hugo (Rwanda), Tom Hunter (Iceland), Nadav Kander (Lesotho), Martin Parr (São Tomé and Príncipe), Rankin (Niger), Stephen Shore (Kazakhstan), and Alec Soth (Netherlands).

Have a look at the website on which you can also find the portrait of Amna from the United Arab Emirates, that I took last summer.

The exhibition is in Victoria Park until the 12th of August and at Park House until the 30th of August, opposite Selfridges. If you pass by you should definitely check it out.

Book Launch

March 11, 2012

It was great fun on Thursday at the exhibition opening and the accompanying book launch of Elephant in Focus: Economy. I am happy to show seven pictures of my project O-Central in the book and in the exhibition. The book looks great and is the third of the trilogy that includes Home and Community.  All three of them are the product of the project Elephant Vanishes of the LCC. A website will be launched later in 2012 www.theelephantvanishes.com.

This Thursday I will give together with other participants of the project a talk about our experience pursuing our projects. If you feel like coming along, you can find the details below.

Elephant in Focus

March 5, 2012

From tomorrow onwards I am going to show The New Residents in the Cuming Museum. The work originates from the times when I did my masters at the LCC. It’s a group show of former students documenting the regeneration of the borough of Elephant and Castle in London.

It’s nice to get the work out of the cupboard again. And it’s also quite exciting because there will be a book. The official opening night will be on the 8th. So come and have a look if you are around!

The Opportunity Area

May 6, 2011

I am happy to be part of the show The Opportunity Area opening next Friday in the shopping centre in Elephant and Castle.

The Opportunity Area brings together works by  ten photographers, developed during a research project in 2009 in the Elephant and Castle’s area in South London. Unfolding through a close collaboration between the photographers and the residents, traders and commuters who gravitate to the site, the resulting project creates an engaging and multifaceted portrait of the changing Elephant. 

The show runs from the 13th to 22nd of May.  So come along and have a look!
