Gallery overload

A few weekends ago I had my monthly meet-up with my ex-colleagues (now friends, can't believe it was 14 years ago we all met), and it happened to coincide with Photo London. We spent the most part of a day walking through all the rooms at Somerset House, looking at what 90 photography galleries from across the globe had to offer. There was a lot of rubbish (in our humble opinions), but also some great work from various photographers. I wanted to take home the large print of the chimney pots (2nd picture), but I didn't have thousands of pounds spare (funny that). Yes, everything was for sale, and I spotted up some below par Saul Leiter prints for £16 000 a piece. Ouch. Mind you, there was also a William Eggleston one for sale for £135 000!! Still, it was really inspiring and if nothing else, I certainly got some great ideas of how to mount prints. Have a great weekend yo!
