World Photography Day


Happy world photography day! For this edition of weekend inspo we are paying homage to the humble (and awesome) photograph. Check out our top 3 photography must sees this weekend!
 

1.   Bowie: Photographs by Gerald Fearnley

Previously unpublished, this exhibition uncovers portraits and photos of the late David Bowie, dating back to 1966-67. The man behind the shots is Gerald Fearnley, brother of "Dek" (Derek Fearnley, bass player of The Buzz (who backed Bowie in 1966/67 and played on his first album.) Gerald got in on the action and created these beautiful shots of the signer-  other notable work he has done with Bowie includes the front cover of Bowie's debut album 'Bowie.' The exhibition runs at the Snap Galleries up until the 24th September, we're getting in there before everyone else gets to it!

2. The Photographers Gallery

More of a general one, but none the less a real treasure if you are into finding the newest up and coming photography talent. The Photographers Gallery is London's largest public gallery dedicated to photography- the galleries mix of the latest emerging talents and established artists is perfect, and the exhibitions change monthly, with events and workshops being held just as regularly. Free to all, world photography day or not, the gallery is a great place to get some culture!
