I have just received the periodic email from Somerset House, which lists the things they have on each month and they are featuring an exhibition of photos of London taken by one Richard Bryant, a noted photographer.
Apart from the exhibition though, there is also a competition for the best photos of London taken by amateurs.
The fluff about the exhibition reads thus:
Richard Bryant is one of Britain’s leading architectural photographers, and in this new exhibition he presents his personal account of London. Picking out views, spaces and architectural detail, the combination of world-famous buildings and little known secrets forces the viewer to reassess what they know about the city.
The competition though – that is being run via the ubiquitous Flickr website.
Richard Bryant will judge the entries himself and he’ll take the winners on a personal guided tour of his exhibition, offering advice on how to take great urban photographs. His favourite photos will also be featured in a winners gallery on the Somerset House website.
The prize is fame and glory!
