SUMMER 2018-EVENTS AND EXHIBITIONS IN LONDON

2018 is shaping up to be another great year of exhibitions and events in London, including gallery re-openings, blockbuster exhibitions, carnivals and many more. In this post I will be mentioning some of the events I am looking forward to this summer.  Check it out and drop a comment 🙂 Somewhere in Between (8 March 2018–27 August 2018) In this exhibition we have 4 artists, Martina Amati, Maria McKinney, Daria Martin and John Walter, who each collaborated with scientists to examine ideas that are important to human life – ideas around our senses, our food sources, our sexual health and the limitations of our bodies. In this exhibition you will see: ‘Alien Sex Club’ by John Walter                     https://wellcomecollection.org/installations/WqwC1iAAAB8AJgFB ‘Sensorium Tests’ and ‘At the Threshold’ by Daria Martin    https://wellcomecollection.org/installations/Wryoox8AAAjk9Xr0 ‘Under’ by Martina Amati                   …

THE LIFE OF A QUEER, BLACK, FEMALE ARTIST

AN ARTIST BORN & RAISED IN LONDON This is Naya Aka-Kwarm, 20 year old artist, born and raised in North London. She is currently working as a bartender part-time,  also a poet and a film maker with her brother. Where are you based in London, describe your environment?  Well where I grew up was pretty rough. It didn’t feel rough but reminiscing on it, and seeing it as it is now, it was, still kind of definitely rough. Although I still reside in North London, I spend most of my time East where things feel a lot different. Definitely a lot more diverse that is for sure. Explain the life of a young adult in London, how do you feel life is for you?  I mean as expensive as London is, it is never going to be that easy for someone that is young and working class. In this moment,…

DAVID NOBRE PHOTOGRAPHY

I would like to introduce to you one of the most passionate young photographers that I have recently met in London, David Nobre. He is “new” in the photography world and has already developed his own technique and style. Born and raised in Portugal, he moved to London a few years ago with his family. Ever since, he has been exploring the city with his camera, meeting new people and  climbing buildings! David’s work mainly focuses on portraits and urban photography.

What Brought you to London?  It was something my parents had decided a few years ago and I followed. What Do you Love About Photography? To be honest, my favourite thing about being a…

ANOTHER KIND OF LIFE – EXHIBITION REVIEW

Photography on the Margins. . . THE BARBICAN CENTRE PRESENTS AN OUT OF THIS WORLD EXHIBITION A translucent thought into what the world could be and what could seem to be, forms from  this mind-blowing exhibition of photography. Experiences like this barely exist, depending on what type of person you are and how you perceive your life. Being the thoughtful thinker that I myself am, and exposing myself to this exhibition brought harmony to my soul. As an artist, creator and a writer, to know that there were these photographers that were alive and some still are. You witness this overwhelming feeling of emotion when you walk around the gallery, it is incredibly heart-warming. Gazing upon the 20 photographers with such diversities, the exhibit opens your mind focusing it to witness and read. I am refusing to speak details of the work, names of pieces, from this exhibition. As for…

BEING AN INTERNATIONAL STUDENT IN LONDON

Live each day with the breeze of the moment. INTERVIEW Tell Me About Who You Are And Where Your From? Hey! My name is Ilaria Iannarilli, 21 years old. Photography Student at London Metropolitan University. I was born and raised in Rome, Italy but now I live in London. Why Did You Apply To Study In London? The reason why I have applied to study in London, is because there are no opportunities to study anything like photography in my home city. I always felt they do not take it very seriously. For example, here universities give space to pave a way for creative people, while in Italy, they do not get a degree but something more similar to a certificate.  Why Did You Consider This As A Great Opportunity? Living and studying in another country at my age is always a great opportunity, I guess. It’s that time of your…

Explore the areas of Beijing, Shanghai and Xi’an. I will be covering brief explanations of my most intriguing moments and memories I had. Travelling across China for 9 days, non-stop with Tour Guides (John, Lily and colleagues: as pictured below). It was all so vast, that more would need to be written. Best to keep it short and sweet! The Environment & Architecture. . .…
