BLEEDING LONDON

SIG: Travel

The London Region of the RPS is running a photographic project over the next six months which aims to photograph all the streets of London.   Further information on this can be found at bleedinglondon.co.uk and on the RPS website. The project is being launched in May and an exhibition is planned for 2015.

 

The London Region is looking for the Special Interest Groups of the RPS, among others, to become involved in the project and the Travel Group has decided to undertake its own sub-project which would feed into the overall one.

The Travel Group Sub-Project

 

To photograph the streets of London that are above the Tube Lines.   This is based on the book ‘Walk the Lines’ by Mark Mason, in which he describes his walks along the whole of the tube network, taking each line in turn.

 

This is obviously a big undertaking and so to start with I suggest our sub-project centres on the lines that are bounded by the Circle Line.    If time permits, it could be extended to the remaining sections of the Underground.     In order to make it manageable I propose to break each line down into sections so that one person, or a group of people, would photograph the street(s) between a certain number of Tube Stations.   

 

Travel Group Members are invited to take part in this sub-project either individually or joining a group on one of the following dates:
