Place In Mind

Is the daily grind getting you down? Feeling claustrophobic in London? If you’ve forgotten what green space looks like, worry not – head down to see Harry Cory Wright’s ‘Place In Mind’ exhibition.

Taking photos of a variety of landscapes across the country (including Stonehenge and come of Britain’s coastal cliffs), ‘Place In Mind’ captures the intensity of each scene.

Taking only one photograph in each location, Harry Cory Wright also uses an old-school camera (rather than a DSLR) to capture the moment.

The exhibition is on at Eleven, 11 Eccleston Street and opens this Friday, February 4.  It runs until March 26.

Opening hours are Tues, Wed, Fri: 11am-6pm; Thursday 11am-7pm and Saturday 11am-4pm.

Nearest Tube: Victoria or Sloane Square

The Press Photographer’s Year

If, like me, you enjoy the pictures as much – if not more – than the report in newspapers, The Press Photographer’s Year exhibition at The National Theatre might be up your street.

Photos on show have been used by the media over the last year, and categories include sport, news, arts and entertainment.

The exhibition is in its last few days, but might be a good way to spend a rainy Wednesday afternoon/evening.  It’s open 9:30am-11pm until Saturday, September 11.

Entry’s free, and you can find the show on in the Lyttleton Exhibition Space at the National Theatre on the South Bank.

Nearest Tube: Waterloo
