lovelondonscenes 127 – View from the Photographers’ Gallery towards Oxford Street

The Photographers’ Gallery is on Ramillies Street, between Oxford and Great Marlborough Streets in Soho. These shots were taken from the fifth floor of the gallery, through a window, with some kind of covering to mitigate the light coming through.  The gallery is really worth a visit. You can see all the exhibitions for £4, and I think it may be free before midday. Highlights for me, when we were there on Good Friday, were Roger Mayne’s photos of people in West London, Leeds, Sheffield and Nottingham in the 50s; and a series, made over the last twenty years, of the people of South Central Los Angeles by Dutch photographer Dana Lixenberg. Both stark and revealing, in black and white.

Anyway, I liked this view, with a narrow sight of Oxford Street, but an odd bit, with trees. Perceptions disorientated.
