RPS London Totally Thames Exhibition At Putney 2020 Image 1
Totally Thames Project 2019

London Region ran a photography project alongside the Annual Totally Thames Festival which was held for the whole month of September 2019.

Our Project started before the Festival with the start of the Clipper Round the World Yacht race in the last week of August and ended in the first week of October.

A selection of images were displayed in London Region's first out door exhibition by St Mary's Church, Putney. 

The exhibition was timed for the month of March 2020 to coincide with the Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race which stats from Putney.  In the event, the exhibition was mounted four days before the Coronavirus Lockdown and the Boat Race was postponed. 

As the Lockdown restrictions are eased, the exhibition is expected to be taken down in June before being re-erected for the postponed Boat Race in October 2020.

Breathing London

 

The Breathing London project was a London-wide Photo project to capture the diversity of London's public green and open spaces - the lungs of the City - over the course of a year.

The photography section of the project closed on 17th April 2017 and the data uploading phase on 30th April.  The website with all the images can be seen here:  breathinglondon.co.uk

End of Project Exhibitions are planned for July and August in Central London, at the Croatian Embassy, and in SW London, at the Putney Library - dates and details to follow.   We also hope to have an Exhibition in North London - yet to be confirmed.  Watch these pages for more details and to join in.

Just as background for those who are new to us, the project was launched at the 2016 AGM - see here: http://www.rps.org/regions-and-chapters/regions/london/blogs/2016/january/london-updat

The parameters for the project were that images could be taken in any publicly accessible space:  parks, heaths, woodlands, nature reseerves, rivers, canals and more.   They could capture landscape, cityscapes, nature, people enjoying and working in the open spaces - in fact anything that captured the attention of the photographer - unusual and entertaining was particularly welcomed.   As with all our projects, anyone was welcome to join.

We held Exhibitions during the course of the project at the Merton Heritage Centre, The Magic Gallery (The Strand) and the Greenwich Gallery in SE London.  We had articles published in London Landscapes magazine and took part in an Event at the Royal Festival Hall, where we had a rolling digital display of our images.  We were intereviewed on Radio London.

We held walks, during the height of the project, weekly - come rain, come shine and we ran a series of workshops (one for each season) with renown wildlife photographer Robert Canis

Our Facebook pages are still open:  please join up if you would like to

Bleeding London

Bleeding London

Read more about the Bleeding London project here.

Inspired by Geoff Nicholson’s Whitbread short-listed novel Bleeding London, in which a character named Stuart London walks the complete length and breadth London, Londoners and visitors to the capital have been following in Stuart’s footsteps and photographing every street as they go.

The photographs in the Bleeding London exhibition illustrate the exhilarating diversity that constitutes the fabric of the city – from the iconic sights to the lesser-known backstreets of the suburbs.  And the 600 participants have been just as diverse – from professionals with top-of-the-range kit to those who have picked up a camera for the first time.  And, unsurprisingly, a significant number of the photos have been taken on phones.

The Bleeding London project is the brainchild of London Regional Organiser, Del Barrett ARPS.  “The project has been an amazing experience and we are thrilled with the results.  The images from the project are not just views of streets, but an eclectic mix of details, urban landscapes, people, wildlife and everything else that London has to offer.”

Author, Geoff Nicholson, has been fully supportive of the project from its inception.  “An author is always delighted when one of his novels has an ongoing life.  As someone obsessed with London, walking and photography, I’m thrilled to have my novel reimagined in the form of contemporary images.” When asked about the title, Geoff said, “The central metaphor of Bleeding London is that the city is a living organism, it breathes, it ages, it is sometimes healthy sometimes not, it occasionally requires a bit of surgery, it has a gut and a heart and lungs and a nervous system.  And it has a life blood – which means that once in a while it will bleed.”
