A must see exhibition at the moment is on at the Barbican – the pioneering documentary photographer Dorothea Lange and contemporary photographer Vanessa Winship. I am in great awe of Dorothea Lange and this exhibition cemented my feelings – she was a determined and powerful woman, using her camera as a pollitical tool to shine a light on cruel injustices . it really is inspiring and even at my age she was visiting those migrant camps showing the world the deep sadness and upset that many people had to experience. I quite liked the photographs of Winship too, but they are very different in style, much more contrived, but still very poignant.
we took a walk around the barbican – one of my favourite places in london – take a walk around the conservatory garden, quite like a mini Eden or Kew conservatory, however you do have to book in advance for afternoon tea. how lucky we are to have so many wonderful free things to do in london.
