The London Photo Show is set to return to the Southbank this autumn, giving professional, semi-professional, independent and amateur photographers from all over the world the chance to exhibit their work to the general public in a professional and high-profile location.
Now in its fourth year, show organisers are calling upon photographers of all abilities to enter their most well-loved shots, which will be displayed at London’s Bargehouse Gallery, situated in the iconic Oxo Tower Wharf, between 15 and 21 October 2019.
Founder and professional photographer, Andrew Mason, who established The Photography Show in 2016 to shine a light on undiscovered talent, said: “We’re absolutely delighted to be returning to the Southbank. The Bargehouse is a raw and atmospheric gallery space – the perfect place for photographers to show off their most dynamic and authentic images to friends, family and other aficionados. I know the thrill and fulfilment that comes from seeing your own work exhibited in a public arena and don’t want this to be limited to just those at the top of the profession – it’s something that everyone should be able to experience.
“The London Photo Show is a totally unique, accessible event that brings together aspirational and committed photography devotees under one roof, giving them the opportunity to build their profile and get noticed, whilst offering visitors the chance to see some truly original artwork. We are passionate about ensuring that photography can be enjoyed by anyone and everyone – the show is built on an ethos of inclusivity and celebration and we can’t wait to open our doors again this October.”
The open exhibition, which welcomes all subject genres including portraiture, fine art, wildlife, architecture, fashion, nature, travel, sport, reportage and landscape is expected to host submissions from around 60 photographers around the globe.
Also making a return to the 2019 line up, will be artwork from CafeArt, a social enterprise that connects those affected by homelessness to the wider community, through their art.
Paul Ryan, co-director at CafeArt said: “Being part of the show last year and exhibiting our work was amazing, you really felt part of something. We all thoroughly enjoyed connecting with other photographers and we look forward to what this year holds.”
