The Weekend Starts Tomorrow

07 October 2015

Region: London

It’s all go in the capital this weekend ... not only does Photomonth get into full swing, but there are lots of other happenings and exhibitions.  What better way to spend the weekend than absorbed in delectable images, delicious books and a dusk ‘ til dawn photo-shoot?

Here’s our quick guide and recommendations for a photographically packed weekend.

Thursday (18:00-21:00)

Opening of the RPS International Print Exhibition 158, the best from 5,000 submissions, at The Old Truman Brewery (make sure you’re there by 6.45 for the presentation of the awards).


Back to the Old Truman Brewery for a proper look at the RPS International Print Exhibition and Photomasters, a showcase of recent MA Graduate work (opens at 10:00).  Hop across the road to Unit 7 for the Photobook fair (opens at 12:00; pdf with details here).  Don’t forget to take a big shopping bag.  And then round off the day with Dougie Wallace’s Harrodsburg at theprintspace (open until 19:00). 


Friday - Saturday

Join RPS London members at 17:00 for the Dusk ‘til Dawn Shoot around the bright lights of the never-sleeping metropolis.  Time for a slap-up breakfast (and 40 winks) before heading off to Four Corners for Uncertain States featuring the best of ‘contemporary lens-based art’ through the eyes of nine selected artists (opens at 11:00).  Continuing the contemporary theme, our next stop is 125Live where you can see and buy the latest works (prices start at £100).



Today’s recommendations start at the Working Men’s Club in Bethnal Green for The Photographic Guide to the Pubs of East London, by Jan Klos (opens at 12:00).  A quick tube ride to the West End finds us at The Photographers’ Gallery for Burden of Proof (satisfy your inner forensic scientist) and then go further west to The Science Museum for Julia Cameron’s Influence and Intimacy.
