Slowing down opens up space for memories, for spirituality, for finding hidden corners of a city, for looking beyond visual clichés, for interacting with the people in front of the camera, for playing with light, for thinking about the meanings of a photograph. Here are, among other genres, still lives, nature photographs, cityscapes and portraits. Some of the photographers have slowed down the process of making pictures itself, either in the camera or in a wet or dry âdarkroom'. This exhibition brings photographs together in wide range of themes, styles and techniques; from all over the world and through seventeen different lenses. And now, instead of being flashed across social networks, the images are on a gallery wall, forcing the viewer to slow down too.
About us: London Independent Photography is a community organisation for amateur and professional photographers with more than 600 members. Set up in November 2010, the LIP Central Satellite Group is a group of photographers from the LIP membership who wish to further their creative developments through presenting their work for critical discussion. Members, whether amateur or professional, aim to improve their own individual approaches and produce a meaningful body of work or portfolio. Meetings are held the second Wednesday of every month in Central London.
