This exhibition shows our 100 Centenary portraits; a celebration of people who contribute to making City Lit special. The photographs offer an insight into the wide range of learning possible at City Lit, from the skills and knowledge that tutors offer to the many talents that students develop. Participants were invited to loan a piece of work for this inaugural exhibition to highlight the breadth and variety of skills accomplished in their subjects.
Photographs by Dominic Harris; 'My ‘100 Portraits’ series celebrates the people that make or have made City Lit so special. I started two years before the college’s centenary and have roughly taken one portrait per week for 100 weeks. The series includes current and past students and staff across the college and the majority of the photographs have been taken outside of the college, such as during performances or lectures, or in their studios and work places'.
As part of our 2019 Centenary celebrations, the City Lit Gallery opened in September 2019 by Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London, funded through the Mayor’s capital investment programme.
