The exhibition has two parts – “London Presence” and “What We See”.
London Presence is an exhibition of photographs by participants from Grace Gelder’s photography workshops at Conway Hall. Exploring different London neighbourhoods, their work maps the streets, people and vistas of London in unique and diverse ways.
“What We See”
What We See is a group show by people ages 8-18 who have attended Young Photographers London workshops within the last year. Led by Grace Gelder & Niaz Maleknia the young people are taken on street photography adventures as well as visiting parks and important cultural landmarks in London. The images reflect the bold and experimental perspectives of a fabulous range of young people.
