Invisible London exhibition in London

I will be showing Invisible London in a joint show with Mimi Mollica called Seen/Unseen, as part of the London Street Photography festival.
I will also be showing 8 photographs from the project on bus shelters running from Mornington Crescent station to Chalk Farm station. If you are in London on the 7th July you are invited to the opening.

Here is the blurb from the press release:

This joint show by award-winning photographers Mimi Mollica and George Georgiou, takes a look at Londoner's journeys and public and private lives from two very different perspectives. Both artists use the London bus as a vehicle to penetrate the private spheres people create for themselves while navigating public spaces. In each case the subjects are unaware of the image makers so their thoughts and interactions are undisturbed at the moment of making the picture. It is only in later viewing that the audience has a glimpse of their private world.
Mimi Mollica's brand new work Bus Stories focuses on a hidden view of London’s bus passengers and questions the ethics of public surveillance. His photographs have a dark, almost eerie quality although they are strikingly familiar.
George Georgiou's ongoing project Invisible:London surveys the diverse topography and migration in London through the windows of buses. The work explore the increasing diversity of a major Western metropolis as the movement and migration of people continues to change both the urban landscape and the community within it.

There are still a couple of places left for the 5 day shooting workshop I am teaching in London to coincide with the London Street photography festival: Details here.
