London, between real and dream

Landscapes and city views were alongside portraiture and still life the first genres to be established in photography. The exhibition Land/City/Real/Imagined explores the two genres from the 1930’s onwards, from black and white photography through to digitally manipulated imagery.

The exhibition is divided into two sections, Land and City.

Highlights in the Land section include.

British photographer, Marcus Doyle, spent several years of the last decade travelling across the USA taking photographs. Doyle never intentionally visited Las Vegas but rather found himself stopping off en route to Death Valley. His image of the Las Vegas skyline, taken through curtains in the Mirage Hotel, is not only startlingly beautiful. It’s also a hyper-real photograph of a city that is in itself hyper-real.
