Travel Photographer of the Year at University of Greenwich

If you’re a frequent reader of SEEN, you’ll know that we love photography. That’s why we’re so excited to announce that some of the world’s best travel pictures are on show at the University of Greenwich from 22nd July until Sunday 4th September. They have been taken by photographers from over 100 countries, offering their unique insights into life, culture, and landscapes from all over the planet.

This is the first time that the Travel Photographer of the Year exhibition has come to the University of Greenwich Stockwell Street building, which is a new hub for creative and digital arts. This annual London exhibition is a free event, attracting tens of thousands of visitors every year. The 2017 show will also be held at the University.

As Professor Neil Spiller, Deputy Pro Vice-Chancellor at the University, says: “This is a major coup for the university and we are delighted to be hosting this exhibition of some truly wonderful photography. Stockwell Street is a grand setting for what will be a great show.”

Exhibition founder, Chris Coe, adds: “This is a very exciting step for us and we are delighted to be bringing this exhibition to Greenwich, a popular destination steeped in the history of both time and travel. The Stockwell Street exhibition space is flooded with natural light so will display the photographs to their best advantage. The new exhibition venue will allow people visiting the hugely popular Maritime Greenwich World Heritage Site to immerse themselves in stunning imagery in a spacious, serene environment.”

The exhibition is next to Greenwich’s other major tourist attractions, including the Cutty Sark, the Royal Park, the Meridian Line and Observatory, the National Maritime Museum, the Queen‘s House and the famous Greenwich Market. It’s a ten-minute journey by train from London Bridge (with trains every ten minutes). If coming from Central London, then take the boat, there’s no finer way to access Greenwich. SEEN recommends that visitors make a day of it.

Sculpture in the City, Art for Everyone

SEEN thoroughly enjoyed a preview of the 18 new artworks around the financial district’s square mile. Set up by The City of London in 2010, this excellent initiative expands its footprint every year, improving the area and proving that when people are happy, they work better.

Alex Evans at the Foundry Gallery, Chelsea Quarter: LDF17

The astute reader will have noticed that SEEN loves art about London. There are many artists in this city who draw (pun intended) their inspiration from it, none more so than Alex Evans whose fractal renderings hint at the entropic nature of urban life and perhaps also our anxieties and isolation in the 21st century. His latest exhibition ‘Invisible Systems’ can be seen at the Foundry Gallery, tucked away off the King’s Road until 26th October.
