The Walking Reading Group at The Photographers’ Gallery London AUGUST 2014

Sat 30 Aug 2014 2:00 – 5:00 pm. The Photographers’ Gallery. London


This walk was commissioned by The Photographers’ Gallery as part of their programme of events accompanying Lorenzo Vitturi’s exhibition, Dalston Anatomy. Texts by Su Braden, Sarah Thornton and Sam Berkson provided stimulus for our 4.5 mile walk; we made our way from Soho to Ridley Road in Dalston, passing through Bloomsbury and Angel, then took some respite from traffic on the Regent’s Canal until we reached De Beauvoir Town. From there, we headed towards Ridley Road Market via Kingsland Road. Throughout the afternoon, we talked about gentrification and class, compared the art market with Ridley Road market, and discussed how photography can and cannot effect social change. We finished up at Market Bar on Ridley Road.
