The Fitzrovia Photography Prize seen by many more...

It was only a few days ago when I saw the beginnings of the display going up...

Here is Camen & John who were putting it up & kindly posed for me. They loved the pictures too.

The work is now all up & looks fantastic.

Happy guests with their Polaroid ID badges taken upon entering having a fabulous time.

After a wonderful response to our competition 'The Fitzrovia Photography Prize' last year - where anyone could enter up to 3 images taken 'Within A Mile' of the gallery -  the finalists have a new opportunity for the public to see their work. The largest open air gallery in London, all 114 meters of it along Mortimer Street is currently displaying a wonderful selection of many of the finalists.

The launch at Black + Blue opposite the display on Tuesday was attended by many of the photographers & representatives of the Fitzroy Place development that will be built in the former Middlesex Hospital site. 

Finalists Fariha & Walter converse...

It looks wonderful all lit up at night & I encourage you to come & see it. 

 The half way point...

People stop to look & read the texts accompanying the artwork

Even people in the pictures came, spot the difference below!

Kate & Chris celebrate his newfound fame

These photographs are all taken by yours truly in the brief moments I could during the launch, much more to follow in my next blog taken by Co-curator of the prize Eleanor Kelly. 

The long view...

More frivolity at Black + Blue 

This is only the start of the story...

Finally I would like to thank everyone for coming, all the photographer's who entered & all the team from Fitzroy Place who made this possible.

Oscar speech over, till the weekend...


  1. Well done Laura, it does look great. Pleased that photography is having such a showing...

  2. Thanks for this interesting factor to discuss, but they can be a very interesting aspect of your company about all type of badges.
