British photography: An evening with Peter Dench and Olympus

A collection of previously unpublished work entitled 'The English Summer Season' by renowned British photographer Peter Dench will be exhibited at the Wex Photo Video Gallery from 30 April to 28 June 2019.

Taken over the last two summers, Dench has captured the spirit of typically English sporting events, such as Henley Royal Regatta, Cartier Polo, Epsom and Royal Ascot, which are now frequented each year by characters from all echelons of society. The humorous work portrays the eccentricities, colourful personalities and outrageous antics of spectators enjoying the generous hospitality on offer.

Peter Dench commented: "The events I’ve portrayed were once the preserve of the rich upper classes, but through the years, have become open to a much broader audience. The rules of society have been rewritten. With this reportage, my intention is to capture the humour, the entertainment and the downright craziness of the scenes I have encountered in a light-hearted but truthful manner."

Throughout his 20 year career, Peter has become a widely recognised name thanks to his distinctive narrative and documentary photography shot in numerous countries around the world, with a particular focus on the quirks and behaviour of the English at home.

Tiffany Tangen, events manager at Wex Photo Video, said: "Dench’s images are powerful, relatable and thought-provoking, and his ability to convey humour is light and refreshing. We were thrilled when Peter agreed to exhibit this collection at our Gallery, as it is unlike anything we have shown previously. We’re sure the subject matter will raise eyebrows and generate many smiles along the way!"

'The English Summer Season' will be held from Tuesday 30 April to Friday 28 June 2019 at the Wex Photo Video Gallery in London E1, with free entry.
