NEW VENUE: Viewfinder Photography Gallery, 46 Greenwich Church Street, Greenwich, London SE10 9BL
The Greenwich Group of London Independent Photography returns again to Viewfinder Photography Gallery this August to showcase its exuberant collection of photographic talent and enthusiasm.
Greenwich has always looked outward and beyond the estuary and so do its photographers. The work created by the group reflects that outreach: the impact of tourism in Macedonia, the subtle shifts of landscape and ecology of a Texan desert, longshore drift in New Zealand, left-luggage in a Spanish airport, an Albanian corner shop, sheep birthing in the Hebrides.
The photographers encompass the widest constituency: those from round the corner and those from the edge of the capital; those who have lived in Greenwich all their lives and those just discovering it; folks who live on the hill to those who travel to the meetings from Dorset.
The Greenwich Satellite Group is rooted within the local community and many within the group are intimately involved in documenting the extensive evolution and regeneration of the peninsula alongside the perennial historic centre of the Borough.
From its gathering of eleven photographers in May 2007 to a membership of over 150, Greenwich LIP Group reflects the diversity of Borough, Capital and Continent.
Curator Louise Forrester comments: This annual exhibition never fails to delight - the open nature of the show means there's bound to be a photograph to appeal to each and every visitor!
Greenwich Peninsula is, for the second year running, generously sponsoring this exciting exhibition. Lynda Catt, Head of Marketing for Greenwich Peninsula comments: ìWe are keen to once again support this exhibition and see the creative work of talented photographers shared with the community as they capture a moment in time.
Greenwich Hospital, which is hosting the exhibition, comments:
We are delighted to host the Third Greenwich Annuale at 46 Greenwich Church Street. This will be a fantastic attraction within the town centre that visitors can pop into whilst browsing the shops and market stalls in Greenwich. Greenwich Hospital is always keen to support new talent in a variety of creative fields and we are pleased to support the Viewfinder in exhibiting emerging photographers. We wish the exhibition every success.
