The Museum recently collaborated with Londonist on our first Flickr photography project.
Taking inspiration from our current exhibition: Sense and the City, we challenged you to stop a while and sense the city. We wanted snapshots of ‘smart, connected and on the move’ London: a city buzzing with activity 24 hours a day.
We had an amazing response to the project, over 600 photographs were submitted: http://www.flickr.com/groups/sense_the_city/
Fifty short listed photographs were selected and are now on display on our Flickr wall in the Museumgallery. Judges Clive Birch (Visiting Tutor on the Royal College of Art’s vehicle Design Programme) and Johanna Empson (Talks and Events Programmer at the Photographers gallery) selected three of the photographs for special commendation. They were:
- Tube Story by Danielle Houghton
- Better to just ignore him… by Stephen Banks
- See Red by Geoff Holland
We thought it might be nice to learn a little bit about the photographers behind the chosen entries, so we will feature the three photographers in a ‘Meet the photographer Q & A’ session.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank again to all those photographers who took part in the project, the judges and of course Londonist. Interviews with Danielle and Geoff to follow soon!
