Although I hate to post about something that has past, but sometimes little gems which you perchance to stumble across are just that worthy of sharing. I managed to catch The London Independent Photography 22nd Annual Exhibition on it's very last day of showing at the Strand Gallery. Beautifully displayed in an open and airy space across two floors, it was a pleasure of an afternoon browsing along all the selected photographers work.
London Independent Photography was founded 21 years ago by Janet Hall and Virginia Khuri under the inspiration of the workshops organized by Paul Hill at the Photographers Place. They decided to set up a
a community whereby other like-minded photographers could get together and be able to share and support one another in development of expressive photographical approaches.
An organisation representing the amateur and professional photographers a-like they now have more than 500 members. Every year all members are encouraged to sumbit there work to be considered for the LIP annual group show in London. Each year they have a pannel of impartial selectors to view submissions and choose what work will be in the show. Here are a few of the cream of the crop shown below:

Judith Jones series of photographs 'Poundbury' were immideatiely drawing and intriguing, the simple nature of the subject of focus almost makes looking at these ordinary illuminated houses have almost a doll's house quality to them. Find out the Artist intentions and inspiration about these images here, it really is a thought-provoking concept.
