London Photo Gallery Featured Photographer: Stuart Cashmore #photography #london #londonphotofestival #atlanta #londonphotogallery

Of all of the pictures I have taken this is my personal favourite. I woke early one Sunday morning in a hotel in downtown Atlanta, looked out of the window and this scene greeted my eye. From a technical perspective it’s probably not the best – it was taken on an inexpensive compact camera through a dirty window. However I love the stark “canyon” which the buildings create, their near monchrome countered by the bright red of the solitary car. If this picture had been deliberately posed it couldn’t have been better.

Stuart is a regular exhibitor at the London Photo Festival and went on to successfully exhibit this image at the Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition.

Stuart will be joining 20 other photographers for a group exhibition at Harris + Hoole in Twickenham for 3 months from 10 November.

Photographers of The World: KALOGIORGI MARIA PHOTOGRAPHY #photography #Greece #londonphotofestival

Hello my name is Maria, photography is my calling, my profession, and the thing that will undoubtedly drive me insane someday. I don’t photograph subjects. I photograph the way they make me feel. I am fortunate to be able to spend a good amount of time on personal projects, traveling and collaborating with a team of rad people. I make my bed in Kavala, Greece and am dying for assignments where I have the opportunity to travel. I am an an awarded photographer my work has been published in magazines and books, and I also have taken part in exhibitions in Greece and New York.

She is currently working on a project called ‘Eternity‘ –  a photography project exploring how landscape shapes and communicates with eternity.

Featured Festival Photographer #photography #London #londonphotofestival #art #exhibitions #sydney #australia #Montenegro

Featured Festival Photographer:-
Zorica Purlija won a place in the Festival on Instagram and is our first exhibitor from Sydney, Australia.
 
Zorica migrated age 8 from Montenegro to Australia in 1972: a country where she could not speak the language.
 
As she learned to live in a different culture, she observed that the nuances of human interaction often were more revealing than the words.
 
Since 1999, Zorica has been pursuing her artistic vision through the medium of photography.
 
Initially pursuing themes of beauty, longing and the human experience through photographic portraiture, Zorica developed a unique ability to capture the essence of her subjects, beginning (and continuing) with a series of portraits of her muse, Yumi.
 
More recently in addition to her portrait work, Zorica has been pursuing less figurative subjects, incorporating ethereal elements of landscape, and everyday objects seen in new ways.
 
You can see her image at the Festival 17-19 May 2018.

Featured Festival Photographer:- Denitsa is our first photographer to enter from #Bulgaria and you can see her images at this year’s Festival 17-19 May #photography #londonphotofestival

Denitsa Popova is 27 years old from Burgas, Bulgaria . She lives by the sea, which has always been her inspiration. Тhat’s why it’s present on most of her photos. She connects photography with the unexplained feeling that she feels only when she’s taking pictures.

One from the archives: when we spoke to @KarolinSchwab, our first Best in Show winner at the inaugural LPF in 2011! #photography

It’s been some time now since I have been part of the fantastic London Photo Festival, but my memories of it are still quite vivid. I heard about the LPF from one of my teachers at University in Germany, where I used to study for a Teacher’s degree in Fine Art at that time. Since I was planning to spend a semester abroad in London anyway and now found out there would be a chance to exhibit my work, I didn’t hesitate a second and booked my space.

So finally the big day of the private view came and I remember walking around the exhibition thinking “damn, there are some really good photographer’s in this show, who really know how to use their camera.” A little bit embarrassed about my own photo I tried to look at the positive sides, like that I got to meet a lot of interesting people and generally the whole experience of exhibition practice was very helpful. So, as I was in company of nice people and good wine, you can imagine how I surprised I was, when suddenly my name was called out for “Best in Show”.

I didn’t expect it at all I can’t emphasize this enough!) and I think it actually took me a few days to realize everything. Also the fact that my picture got sold straight from the show seemed very unreal at first. It was all too good. I’m still in touch with the collector who bought my piece and it’s such a nice thing to know my photo is now hanging miles away in somebody else’s living room.

Still, what was even more important to me – That night, after winning the award, my boosted ego decided to take my career as an artist seriously, quite my studies in Germany, stay in London and finish my Fine Art degree here. Looking back, there isn’t much to say other than: It has been the best decision I’ve ever made. After two wonderful years full of art, putting up and taking down many more shows and finally graduating from Uni, I am know back in Germany, Berlin dividing my time between working for a gallery and concentrating on my own art work.

Nothing left to say than life is good. In fact, it’s great and I really have to thank everyone from the LPF, without whom all this might have never happened.
