Photographing London Streets
The Museum of London
18 February to 4 September 2011

Two of Bridget's images from 1950s Portobello Road were shown in Photographing London Streets. This was major exhibition at the Museum of London which showcased an extraordinary collection of London street photography with over 200 candid images of everyday life in the street. From sepia-toned scenes of horse-drawn cabs taken on bulky tripod-mounted cameras to 21st century Londoners digitally ‘caught on film’, exploring how street photography evolved from 1860 to the present day. The exhibition examined the relationship between photographers, London’s streets and the people who live on them, and reflected on the place of photography on London’s streets today as anti-terrorism and privacy laws grow ever tighter.
