In the press...

The River People exhibition finally came down on Friday 10th June, having been up for 7 weeks. I have been absolutely blown away by the response from the media, the press and the public towards the portrait series, detailing the lives of 12 people whose lives are connected to the Thames. It was heartwarming to revisit the exhibition one evening, whilst showing a friend around who was visiting from San Fran, and get to read some of the many kind words and comments various visitors had left in the guest book. It really does make all the difference when an idea I had 10 months ago transforms into a project that has not just intrigued people and put a great deal of attention back on the River Thames, but also genuinely touched people by causing an emotional reaction.

This was all helped by the attention it received from the press and media. The exhibition was recommended by Time Out, featured on Londonist.com, I was interviewed on BBC Radio London, ITV London news and also given a very generous full page 3 spread by the Evening Standard. It could also not have happened without the great support of the host venue: ICE.org.uk and the sponsors of the project: Tideway.London

I'm flattered. Now onto the next project...
