Installation of the much anticipated second annual My Story exhibition happened in the Brixton Library on Tuesday January 3rd.
Twelve photographers from the RPS Cafe Art Photography Mentoring Group have chosen four photos each for the exhibition which will formally open on Thursday January 5th at 6pm.
After last year's great success, this January Brixton library will again be hosting another My Story exhibition showcasing photographic work by those who have been affected by homelessness.
Twelve participants from the RPS/Cafe Art mentoring group, who meet up several times a month to improve their photographic skills with the help of mentors from the Royal Photographic society, were asked to submit a panel of 4 photographs representing their style of photography.
This has resulted in bodies of work which helps showcase the personalities of the photographers as well as providing a wonderful variety of 48 images in total.
The objective of the RPS/Cafe Art group is to help the well being and confidence of those who have been affected by homelessness through photography and this exhibition plays an important part in enabling this.
The exhibition opens in the Brixton Library on Thursday January 5th, 2023. Please join us at the opening which will be in the evening, 6pm-8pm. The closest tube station is Brixton (Victoria line).
The exhibition will be open all day from Wednesday January 4th. Open during library times. The exhibition closes mon Monday January 30th.
