The World in London

Oxford Street, London

Rarely have I been so gripped by a photography exhibition as I was by The World in London, which depicts a London inhabitant from every single country of the world (well, almost.) Each portrait was taken by a different photographer, so the style varies considerably, and the best thing of all that it’s not in a gallery, but accessible to all those 1000s of people who walk along Oxford Street every day. My favourite is the portrait taken in the unmistakable London ambience of a tube carriage of a Yemenite. The exhibition is up for the duration of the Olympic Games until September 9th 2012.

My own attempt at featuring countries of the world in one unifying theme is my Waiting for the Bus photography project. It includes quirky fruit bus stops in Japan and fast food themed ones in Bangkok.
