Fleet Street Photo Exhibition

50 Press Photographs at “The Fleet Street Press” Coffee and Tea House

Authentic Fleets Street Photograph

Fleet Street is synonymous with British Newspapers – the “press”. Even though the last newspaper left the street over 20 years ago, the industry is still referred to as “Fleet Street” and as such, the street has a special symbolism for press photographers and journalists alike.

The exhibition is a collection of work from press photographers working for the national papers, international wire agencies and local papers around the country. It’s an insight into the world of press photography, covering wars, politics, features, portraits, disasters, press conferences and sports.

Images that are hard hitting, thought provoking or quirky; you’ll find the full gamut. We are not the paparazzi and as such, you won’t find any of that genre of image here. We are where the news is; we find the truth, we witness history and we are the eyes of the British public who rely on us to bring the news.

On a personal level, it’s with great pleasure that I share the news that two of my images have been selected to be exhibited in the Fleet Street Photo Exhibition:

The exhibition will be open to the public from Monday, April 22nd, 2013 and is going to be a long term, evolving exhibition of work by press photographers. The images on display will be for sale. Each of the 50 photos is 40cmx30cm (A3’ish, including border) and printed on fibre based Baryta paper.
