During my few days in London, I walked around the streets of Soho. It still has character but is no longer full of bars, strip clubs, etc. The locals are complaining it is becoming gentrified and bland.
I dropped in to The Photographer’s Gallery at 16-18 Ramillies St, Soho to see the Roger Mayne exhibition. Mayne was known for his black and white images documenting life in the streets of the 1950s and 1960s.
Mayne died in 2014 and this was the first exhibition of his work since 1999. Once again, I learned the value of seeing original prints instead of images in books or on line. Unfortunately I couldn’t hang around long enough to see the exhibition of Gregory Crewdson’s work.
