The Photographer's Gallery is currently hosting 3 main exhibitions - a Saul Leiter retrospective, an installation by Rosangelo Renno and photographs documenting the Easter Uprising 1916.
The Photographer's Gallery is one of my favourite places in London. A variety of exhibitions that change relatively quickly so I feel a fairly regular impetus to visit. Free admission before midday and only 3 quid thereafter. They also have a really great bookshop and a print sales room (I wish!).
The Saul Leiter retrospective is the exhibition I enjoyed the most this time, though I hadn't heard of him before the visit. An American, a painter by trade, and a real proponent of colour photography. I really enjoyed Leiter's use of reflection and framing in the images, and hand colouring over the top which really highlighted his skills as a painter.
This one is my favourite image from the exhibition - ignore the reflection of other attendees! I love the framing of the umbrella, the flashes of other colour in the image and the way my eye is drawn in different directions by the geometry of the image.
