One of the most stunning collections of landscape photography you’re likely to find right now, the Landscape Photographer of the Year exhibit is also one of the most accessible exhibits in the country.

The exhibit will run from November 20th, 2017 until February 4th, 2018 and is housed in London’s Waterloo station. Entry is free and the exhibit will be available as long as the station is open, making it wildly accessible.

Once the exhibit has finished in Waterloo, selected winning images will tour train stations across the country.

Illuminating India

Shravanabelagola, Karnataka, India 1981 by Mitch Epstein

This exhibit showcases the work of Indian photographers in India. Many of the more wildly distributed images of India between the invention of the camera and Indian independence were taken by British photographers and used as a method of propaganda for people back in Britain, but also as a way to say to Indian people that the British way of life was superior.

The focuses of this exhibit are two key moments in modern Indian history – 1857, the year of the Mutiny, and 1947, the year of independence.

The exhibit is open now and will be available to visit until 31st March 2018 in the Science Museum. Entry is free but booking is required.

We hope you’ve enjoyed this look at some of the most exciting exhibits in London right now, and make sure to share your experiences with us on Facebook if you attend any of these exhibits.
