Exhibition of 14 stunning shots of East London by homeless group proves a hit


An exhibition of 14 stunning shots of East London by a group of Cafe Art MyLondon photographers who have experienced homelessness is due to open in Qbic hotel on Monday 2 October.

Qbic Hotel partnered with Cafe Art and The Royal Photographic Society (The RPS) to take photos of East London.

Paul Ryan from Cafe Art says Qbic approached Cafe Art wanting to give the MyLondon photography group a new challenge – to take photos of interesting parts of east London near Qbic. “They wanted to add a more personal and interesting piece of work created by local artists of the area.”

Rebecca Waters from Qbic said they thought of our MyLondon photography project. “After a meeting we decided to give the challenge to the photography mentoring group. It was a perfect challenge – it was a real job for them. Our goal is to empower people and this has more than achieved that goal.”
