Quilter Cheviot has announced its sponsorship of the Royal Photographic Society’s (RPS) Bleeding London exhibition.
Taking place at the capital’s City Hall for a month from the 8th July, Bleeding London is the most ambitious photography project that the capital has ever seen and aims to capture photographs of every street in London – mostly taken by Londoners themselves.
The exhibition is inspired by Geoff Nicholson’s novel Bleeding London, in which protagonist Stuart London is determined to walk down all of the capital’s roads, streets and alleyways.
Discussing the exhibition, Martin Baines, Chief Executive Officer at Quilter Cheviot, said: “This is a very engaging concept from the RPS, and we really are delighted to be able to support it.
“Gathering photographs of all 58,000 of the capital’s streets was no mean feat, but Londoners have certainly risen to the challenge. We’re very much looking forward to seeing this celebration of one of the world’s greatest cities.”
Dr. Del Barrett ARPS, London Regional Organiser for the RPS, added: “This project is unique in that the public, and their city, is the star of the show. We’ve been amazed by the response we’ve had and are extremely grateful to Quilter Cheviot for helping us bring this exhibition to fruition.”
