Exhibition 2 – Strange and Familiar: Britain as Revealed by International Photographers
Barbican Centre
Ends June 19 2016

Strange and Familiar is an appropriately named series of images from 23 international photographers who have turned their unique eyes on the average British people and are presenting their work for all to see.

This exhibition will be both warmly familiar, as you star into the eyes of people just like yourself, but will also be incredibly revealing as you see Britain through the eyes of people looking from the outside in.

Exhibition 3 – Paul Strand: Photography and Film for the 20th Century.
July 3 2016

Following the life’s work of Paul Strand, this series documents the evolution of the 20th Century through the lens of a man who watched the automobile replace the horse and cart, lived through 2 of the greatest wars the world has seen, and documented everyday life for Americans throughout the Depression.

Strand’s work is a beautiful exploration of everyday humanity in an ever changing century that saw humanity advance further and faster than ever before.

Exhibition 4 – Vogue 100: A Century of Style.

Vogue, a publication synonymous with following and setting fashion and lifestyle trends, is also a publication that has seen over 100 years of publication.
This exhibition follows the evolution of Western fashion styles over the last century, showing far more than what the “in” style of that season was, but also showing how society was evolving in its views and opinions.

Exhibition 5 – Breaking Stones 1963-1965: A Band on the Brink of Superstardom
Proud Gallery Chelsea

Capturing the very beginning through his lens, Terry O’Neill’s images show The Rolling Stones before they became world renowned, but as a group of middle class young men at the start of their careers, in a time where money and power were becoming less important, and the “average” was becoming the extraordinary.
