The London Photo Show




A great opportunity to discover new ways of seeing through the eyes of photographers from all over the world.






     ︎Everybody knows that London is one of the most important cities in the world, always buzzy, and full of exhibitions and artistic activities. Every week you can discover new galleries and museums around the city that keep you inspired.

One of the most important photographic events of the year here is The London Photo Show, that brings together over 50 international photographers, with a wide range of different styles and techniques.

The 2019 edition took place in the famous Bargehouse Gallery, a space that belongs to the OXO Tower Wharf on the Southbank, in the heart of London. It is a cultural hub, home to leading design studios, contemporary exhibition and event spaces.

I was delighted to be a part of the festival, displaying, for the first time, my photography project Tales, a collection of Silver Gelatin Prints that explores the ability of photography to nourish the imagination of the viewer.

Showing a new body of work is always an exciting experience, especially if you have the chance to spend time with the visitors, photography collectors and other photographers who give you invaluable feedback.

I was also thrilled to see the other photographer’s exhibitions. I discovered the work of Nick Hodgson and his breathtaking landscapes of Namibia, Gary Heiss, who explores poetry through minimal black and white pictures of nature or Greg Brennan, with his powerful portraits of celebrities such as Lady Gaga and Bill Clinton.

I consider photography to offer an opportunity to understand the world through another’s lense, and The London Photo Show is the perfect place to experience this.

I would also like to thank all my friends and family who joined me for the exhibition, to be surrounded by my loved ones is one of the best gifts photography gives me.
