The theme of the festival is 'The Four Elements: Earth, Water, Air and Fire' and it's the third year we have been invited to participate by Emma Mapp and Kit Shah who run the festival. Louise Danby is representing Cafe Art again with photos taken on camera she bought with money earned selling the My London calendar. Her last year's entry of a clown during a housing protest on Tower Bridge was used to promote the first London clown festival on The Reviews Hub website yesterday. Louise decided to use the theme of Fire. All of her photos have been taken on . Louise is a member of the Cafe Art Photography Mentoring group run by Neil Cordell from The Royal Photographic Society who was also exhibiting in the exhibition. The mentoring group, set up in November in an effort to expand the My London programme, meets every two weeks on Fridays and Saturdays and is open to past top 20 winners of the project. The participants learn the basic of using digital cameras and meet in the Qbic Hotel's cafe. The Qbic gives Cafe Art storage for it's paintings and photographs and also has a permanent exhibition of My London photographs.

Two other members of the photography mentoring group to exhibit in the exhibition are Goska Calik who had two photos in the 20i6 My London calendar (June and December) and Frances Whitehouse, who had a photo in the 2015 My London top 20. They had to upload their photos and the public voted on them as the space on the wall was limited. See the London Photo Festival at The Crypt, St George the Martyr Church, Borough High St, London, SE1 1JA (Opposite Borough Station) 19 May to 21 May. You can purchase the framed A3-sized photos for £60 each.

The Cafe Art Team: Paul Ryan, Frances Whitehouse, Goska Calik, Louise Danby and Neil Cordell.
