About Strange Familiars

The people we meet, the places we visit, or even a simple object we have or use can seem very familiar. But occasionally, when we are in that familiar place, or with those familiar faces or holding that familiar object we look again, and discover something new, something strange.

Twenty-two London photographers present 'Strange Familiars', a vibrant exhibition that perhaps catches a contemporary mood as much as it explores nuance in the everyday. With work ranging from nature photography, street photography and portraiture to architectural studies and abstract, this compelling show presents a very diverse range of contemporary photography.

The exhibiting artists are Robin Barr, Hady Bayoumi, Héloïse Bergman, Dorota Boisot, Eric Boscia, Chris Burrows, Jan Cylwik, Austin Guest, Andy Holliman, Steve Jones, Teresa Levitt, Hugh Look, Rashida Mangera, Heather Martin, Frankie McAllister, Eve Milner, Ingrid Newton, Jim Paterson, Edith Templeton, Geoff Titley, Alec Wyllie and Astrid Zweynert.

Strange Familiars is curated by Jenny Nash who is an alumna of both Photography BA and MA By Project at London Metropolitan University. Details about the exhibition and opening hours can be found on the Espacio Gallery website.
