Lifting the Curtain Exhibition

Posted on April 15, 2015


I had some really good news this week. Town House Gallery in Fournier Street, Spitalfields has agreed to stage an exhibition of my Lifting the Curtain work. The event will run from 15th-24th October and will be part of the 2015 East London International Photography Festival.The venue is fantastic.  It is a standalone gallery space set in the rear garden of one of the lovely 18th century town houses, right next to Hawksmoor’s Christ Church.

Prints, an exhibition catalogue and copies of my book will be on sale. All monies raised will go to Toynbee Hall who have been providing support, advice and education to the needy of East London for 130 years. Charles Booth was based at Toynbee Hall whilst conducting his 1889 survey.  Lifting the Curtain revisits Booth’s East London through a series of modern day photographs and texts drawn from his 1889 survey.

Watch this space for more details as plans for the event unfold…
