Foto8 Summershow 2011 : Best In Show
On Friday night I attended the Foto8 Summershow 2011 at the Host Gallery in Honduras Street, London. The greatest thing about this event (apart from the obvious amazing images on display….) was that it was actually a mini street festival, with music, food & PLENTY of free drink. I may very well have indulged in a few sherberts. I may very well have indulged in a bucket load of sherberts. Either way, I indulged. Mainly in rum & coke.
2,853 entered images were edited down to a 150 which were shown in the exhibition on the night, of which my ‘Downtown Las Vegas’ image was included. It was a fantastic event to be involved with & I urge all photographers out there to think about entering next year, as the taking part itself is inspiration enough.
I had quite a few favourites, but it was no surprise that Luca Sage won ‘Best In Show’ with his very ‘striking’ & full of vibrant colour ‘Ivory Coast 2011’ image of boy footballers. But could you imagine fast forwarding ten years & the boy at the front turns out to be the new Didier Drogba…? That would make this image even more amazingly iconic!
