Photo Walk Old Chelsea
Date: 6th October 13
Time: 2:00PM - 5:00PM
Location: Fulham Road
Group: Documentary and Visual Journalism
Old Chelsea has been home to many artists and eccentric denizens over the years, as well as fictional characters including James Bond and George Smiley. The streets are bursting with eclectic mixes of architecture and idiosyncracy, not to mention blue plaques - Cheyne Walk allegedly has more blue plaques than any other street in the UK. With the help of anecdotes, local trivia and snippets of history, this guided walk will offer participants the chance to capture the unusual and the bizarre in the streets of Old Chelsea.
Two optional challenges will be offered:
1. Where did they live?
Armed with a set of clues, participants will be challenged to find and shoot the buildings where the famous and infamous once resided. There will be a small prize for the image that in the opinion of the judges is the most creative and aesthetically pleasing.
Old Chelsea offers a wealth of architectural detail and street furniture – from the Victorian tiles of the Michelin Building to the assortment of drainhole covers in the back streets. Participants will be asked to produce a “Collection of Detail”. All participants will have the chance to exhibit their work in the RPS London Space (The Cave in Greenwich).
A voluntary contribution of £2 is suggested.
Meeting Point: Outside Bibendum, 81 Fulham Road. It would be helpful if you could email us if you intend to join the walk.
