Black and Light: George Nicholson at

The exhibition consists of a wide variety of black and white photographs that range from people groups to landscapes.

Many of the photos were taken in markets and other locations around London. Viewing all 47 photographs does not demand a long period of time because they are laid out in a spacious area allowing easy viewing.

Nicholson utilises the artistic elements of contrast, focus and the absence of colour to captivate the viewer and encourage a closer look at the photograph.

The viewer's imagination is a key element as the edgeless landscapes fade into the shadows of sunrise or sunset.

In some photographs only outlines of figures and objects are visible leaving their identities hidden. In others, the light places emphasis on facial expressions or features of nature.

George Nicholson – a well-known local figure for his involvement with Coin Street Community Builders and Borough Market – spends time at the gallery promoting his work and selling his photographs, books and postcards.
