In the foyer of a Canary Wharf skyscraper can be found a range of photos that mark the fiftieth anniversary of the Association of Photographers (AOP).
Some small, others exploded up to a size probably unimaginable to the original photographer.
The grand scale of the photos works really well in the triple-height foyer of One Canada Square, although they can be harder to see without getting a bit of a sore neck from peering upwards all the time.
The exhibition, curated by Zelda Cheatle, presents a collection of images that define 50 years of the AOP, selected to illustrate the impact, diversity and quality of work by its members since 1968, who have included David Bailey, Lord Snowdon, Barry Lategan, Patrick Lichfield, Giles Duley, Nadav Kander and Rankin.
Many of their images have defined a generation and helped to shape public opinion and create change.
The exhibition is free to visit, and is open daily 7am-8pm until 1st June 2018. There’s a leaflet on the tables with a map of the photo and explainer of each of them.
Although the foyer is the entrance to the skyscraper, it’s also a pseudo-public space, and you are free to wander around anyway, just not past the security barriers.
