North West London members of the London Independent Photography (LIP) group
are pleased to announce a forthcoming exhibition of their photographs. The range
of images on show is quite diverse, including abstracts, documentary and portraiture.
Although the photographers are based in North West London, the exhibition has
a distinctly international flavour, with series' of images from England, France,
Italy, Africa and North America. Something for everyone
Elisabeth Blanchet's series captures the lapse of time when day turns into
night in African cities - light bulbs and neon lights, one by one, bring a new
colour to the city.
Karl Blanchet is showing photographs from his book Sommeil de Pagne (text by
Franck Pavloff), documenting a psychiatric institution in Toga.
Jeanine Billington is presenting part of her series taken in India, of a nomadic
tribe and life on the eternal River Ganges.
Jean Davey Winter has explored the shadows and reflections of buildings in New
York and other cities.
Mary Dunkin is showing a series of atmospheric photographs of amateur boxers
training in a London gym.
Constantine Gras' photographs, taken in Glasgow just as news came through that
the coalition forces had launched war on Iraq, capture the anti-war movement
in the streets.
Steve Gross' photographs are from his series of street photographs from Kilburn,
and supplement his recent successful exhibition.
Lenny Jordan has produced a series of abstract images with his house interior
as the subject.
Brian Rybolt's images, taken in artisan's studios and a garden statuary shop
in Rome and Pietrasanta, represent the shadowy side of western Christian religion
with a sprinkling of ambiguous authoritarianism.
Martin Stewart presents a series of close-up images exploring patterns and colours
found in and around building sites.
Tony Wallis' images are of young people searching exploring and discovering,
taken in the museums, art galleries and parks in London.
London Independent Photography (LIP) is a group of over 200 photographers from
various photographic backgrounds. Established in 1987, it holds meetings, workshops,
and lectures by practitioners and prominent teachers. The group also publishes
a Journal. The current exhibition grew out of a meeting of LIP members living
locally in Brent. Further information about the group and the exhibition are
available at the website www.londonphotography.org.uk.
