Of things not seen: A Year in the Life of a London Priest is a photo-essay by award-winning photographer, Jim Grover. It seeks to bring to life what it is like to be a Church of England minister in South London today; this theme has not been covered by a photographer before, making this a unique project. The photo-essay was shot in black and white, as reportage, over a 14 month period in 2014 and 2015. Jim spent 63 days with Kit Gunasekera, the Vicar of St James, Clapham, in his vicarage, in his parishioners homes, in care-homes, on the streets, in the community and in his church. A selection of 46 images (curated by Katy Barron) make up the exhibition in gallery@oxo on the South bank from March 3rd-20th (11-6pm; entrance free). The photo-esssay will be featured in the March edition of Black+White Photography. There is an exhibition web-site which provides various materials/interviews (including a salection of the exhibition images):
If you are unable to come along on the 9th, Jim will also be available to meet with RPS members, and share his perspectives, on Saturday 12th March at 4pm in the gallery.
