Breathing London

We’re in. Are you?
Participate in the latest London-wide photo project running throughout 2016 (and until Spring 2017) - a project to photograph the diversity of London's Open Spaces

The London Region of the Royal Photographic Society is inviting Londoners, and visitors to the capital, to participate in a London-wide photo project running throughout 2016 and until the Spring of 2017.

"Breathing London" aims to capture the diversity of London’s green spaces – the ‘lungs’ of the city – over a year. 

Images can be taken in any publicly accessible space: parks, heaths, woodlands, nature reserves, rivers, canals and more. They can capture landscapes, cityscapes, nature, people enjoying and working in the open spaces and, in fact, any items that capture your attention - unusual and entertaining is good too!  Images uploaded to the database must be taken after the project began, 14th January 2016, and will continue until 17th April 2017.

The project was launched at the AGM - see here: http://www.rps.org/regions-and-chapters/regions/london/blogs/2016/january/london-update

Qualifications:

  • You don’t have to be an RPS member and you don’t have to live in London
  • You don’t have to be a photographer and you don’t even have to own a camera – any device, including phones and tablets, that takes pictures is acceptable.

Individual sign up is now available via the London Events Page:  http://www.rps.org/events/2016/january/20/breathing-london-project.  Your fee of £10 for RPS Members,  £15 for Non-Members, will entitle you to upload our images to the new Breathing London Website.   This code will be sent to you as soon as possible after your payment has been received.   For students, and organisations which would like to take part as a group, please contact greenlondon@rps.org for special prices.

Please note, that in case your images are chosen for Exhibition or large-size printing you need to retain your original, preferably RAW, files on your own drive or storage.
