I went to Somerset House the other week to see exhibitions. I love Somerset House as it’s a wonderful location and there’s always so much going on there!
Tim Walker Exhibition
I went to see the Tim Walker Exhibition. It was fantastic to see the work and especially with the set up including lots of his props. Some as big as the room itself and others in cabinets and displayed around the room. So much to look at! The exhibition did really well to put us in Tim Walkers dream like world. You follow text around corner of the walls and through doorways. Some of the rooms are so full with props they give us an insight to the scale of a Tim Walker set.
To my suprise one of my favourite photos turned out to be this one simply because I had never seen it before:
I thought the idea suited the Monty Python lot so well. What a fantastic idea!
You can see and read a little more about it here:
Henri Cartier- Bresson Exhibition
This exhibition featured Cartier- Bressons work as well as other photographers who have taken influence from his work. My favourites were the classic photographers such as Cartier- Bresson and Saul Leiter. I enjoyed seeing the different eras and times depicted in the photographs.
Next Exhibition to see: Valentino!
