The end of summer and start of the new school year has coincided with quite a few new London photography exhibitions starting this September. Charles March (of Glorious Goodward fame) has a new Seascape exhibition, shot mostly in the Bahamas. The use of intentional camera movement creates an impression or feeling of the seascape, leaving some room for the viewer’s imagination to fill in the detail. It is worth going to see that London photography exhibition soon as it has quite a short run. Even shorter is the one day London Photography Fair – a must for anyone looking to snap up up vintage photography. For something a little different, there is the first ever U.K. solo exhibition of British photographer Cig Harvey at Beetles + Huxley gallery. Her use of colour in the capture of mundane objects in surreal compositions make for a compelling show.

Quite a few of the London Photography Exhibitions mentioned are closing soon. Details of closing dates are given with the other details below.

See the regularly updated London Photography Galleries list. The London Photography Galleries list compliments this post on London Photography Exhibitions, in addition to information on opening times and maps for the London photography exhibitions.

Charles March: Seascape

Closing soon.
Free admission.

Lord Charles March, the founder of Glorious Goodwood events, turned to landscape photography in 2002 long after he was well established as a successful commercial photographer having published campaigns in Harper’s Bazaar and Italian Vogue. Earlier in his career, he worked as a apprentice to film director Stanley Kubrik. His landscape photography is freer and bolder, less controlled than this early work. He uses intentional camera movement (ICM) to create impressions of his subjects rather than a recording of the object. He can take thousands of exposures until he is happy with the results of the fluid movements of the camera.

Seacapes at Hamiltons Gallery in Mayfair features impressionistic prints of beaches mostly shot in the Bahamas between 2013 and 2016. The captures on the island of Eleuthera were made at different times of year and fluid movement of the camera for each recording captures the transient nature of the Atlantic.

Hamiltons Gallery is in Mayfair, close to Grosvenor Square and a short walk from Green Park tube station.

Closing soon.
Free admission.
Where: Hamiltons Gallery.
Ends: Saturday, 16th September.
