Goodbye Brixton

As we take down our ‘Silhouettes & Shadows’ exhibition at Photofusion we reflect on the amazing six weeks we have enjoyed in Brixton.

When we decided several months ago to run a David Bowie exhibition, celebrating his life and career, Brixton was our first choice location. We wanted to hold it in a place that had meaning and would allow us put on a very personal show that captured the reflections of the photographers who knew and worked with Bowie.

There are many great galleries in Brixton, but Photofusion stood out. Not only is a long-standing and important part of the local community, but with its heart in the training and promotion of the art of photography, it was the place we knew we had to partner with.

It proved to be a great decision and they have been wonderful to work with over the past few months.

We owe a huge debt of gratitude to our photographers, who allowed us to show their work and trawled through their archives to find previously unseen or unexhibited images. They also brought the exhibition to life through their very personal anecdotes and recollections of working with the ‘Starman’.

The exhibition has received the most wonderful reviews and has smashed all our expectations with over 2,000 people visiting it since mid-September.

The two sell-out events held during its course featuring Terry Pastor and Jill Furmanovsky & Dave Hogan were entertaining as well as enlightening and provided great inspiration to those wanting to pursue their dream of being a photographer.

So, we leave with a heavy heart, but take comfort in the fact we have made some great new friends and have been able to share these fantastic images with so many ….. and who knows, maybe we will return to Brixton before too long ….
