Young Lincolnshire photographer Henry Kenyon, is opening his new exhibition, Postcards from London on Monday 26 August 2019 at Wrawby Moor Gallery, Elsham Hall.
Postcards from London is a slice of his street photography, shot on film, across London over the last two years.
Now 23, Henry held his acclaimed first one-man show BEAKS at just 17, a collection of 27 portraits, featured in Tatler. “Photos to pierce the soul”, said one commentator.
He captures people, mood and place as he criss-crosses the city, a city he describes as "the richest possible environment for photography”, multiple times a day by bicycle.
Here he sees the vulnerable and the lonely, the bizarre and the humdrum, the moments of joy and and of desolation.
Henry's street photography acts as counterpoint to his portraiture, which includes Ian Hislop (after he sent Hislop a poem on satire), Simon Sebag-Montefiore, John Lloyd and Ali Smith. His portraits of women mathematicians at Cambridge University were toured throughout Europe last year and his work has been in publications ranging from The Guardian to The Sunday Times.
He will be exhibiting in Paris later this year.
Postcards from London Monday 26 August - Sunday 8 September 2019
