More Guys Hanging - picture preview
Friday 10 June 2011
More Guys Hanging, the second annual exhibition by the Gay Photographers Network, opens in London in just over a week.
Staged to coincide with the Pride Festival, the show has been devised by a group of 40 gay photographers who meet on the last Wednesday of every month in central London to share ideas and knowledge about photography.
Notable contributors include Dean Stockings, Zach Burns, Gaz and Leigh Carter and the collection includes portraits, landscapes, cityscapes nudes and news photography.
Actress and singer Toyah Willcox, who featured in Stockings’ ‘Sofa So Naked’ series, will open the exhibition which is also a fundraiser for the Disabled Photographer’s Society and London Friend.
“[The exhibition] is such a great mixture of talent and creativity in support of such worthy charities,” Wilcox said. “To see collective works such as these intensifies the individual visions of each photographer. It is inspiring.”
The show at the Strand Gallery opens on 21 June until 26 June.
