See Southwark Inside Out at Menier Gallery

This exhibition investigates - and celebrates - the 'spirit of social change' in Southwark through a series of intriguing photographs.

Taken over a period of three days and nights in July 2008, within a five minute walk of the Menier Gallery itself, the photographs document ordinary and extraordinary life in one of London's most fascinating, ancient neighbourhoods as it confronts the pressures of 21st century social change.

Clive Boursnell, the exhibition photographer, has recently worked with Peter Ackroyd to recapture the spirit of old Covent Garden Market in the 1960s and 70s. Now, he's trying to catch a glimpse of history-in-the-making across the river in Southwark.

The photographs have been commissioned by Forster, the social change communications consultancy, which is based in the sister building to the Menier Gallery.

Forster is collaborating on See Southwark Inside Out as part of a week of events to celebrate the consultancy's ten successful years of 'communications for change' on issues ranging from renewable energy to mental health, Fairtrade, social inclusion and organic food.
