Exhibition : Facing Uncertainty 2011

John Kenny

21-SEP-2011 to 02-OCT-2011

12-6pm daily (closed Monday 26th)

Facing Uncertainty – Portraits from Africa, a new collection of photographs by John Kenny, is now open at 3 Bedfordbury gallery, Covent Garden, WC2N 4BP.

The work is drawn from John’s recent journey to the north of Kenya and includes both intimate black and white portraits along with large format figures in landscape.  John is renowned for the remarkable level of detail he achieves in his portraiture, which is now enhanced by using a 10×8 format Chamonix camera for some of his work.

The proud people he photographed face daily challenges that we would find insurmountable, and yet, through the strength of their cultural traditions, they are able to survive the extreme climate of the region.
