Exhibition Photos

During London Design Festival I staged my first exhibition alongside furniture designer/maker Sebastian Cox. The show was part of the first South East Makers Club, a series of events connecting Depford, New Cross, Brockley and Peckham. Chooisng the images to print from fours years of shoots was quite a challenge! This will be the first of many shows, I've got the exhibition big now. I'll be starting to sell photographic prints through my website in 2017 - stay tuned.

The space at Depford Market Yard was kindly donated by U+I. We transformed a raw industrial unit into a showcase of photography, furniture and ceramic work from Billy Lloyd.

Well Lit. 

We met some lovely people, many who lived locally and enjoyed discovering this new space. I must say a big thanks to my studio assistant Mugdha who was a huge help in staging the exhibition. 

The wall of mini prints I created especially for the exhibition.

The weekend's events also included talks, studio tours at Cockpit Arts , a 'designers pub quiz' plus a wonderful show called 'Gradient' held at Simple Shape studio in Brockley, read a review at:
