If you happen to be going to London in October, there is an alternative photography exhibition well worth a visit.

Six photographers working with pigment printing processes will be showing their work at the Clifford Thames gallery from 16 October to 15 November 2009. This exhibition will also include work by the inventor of the Temperaprint process, Peter Fredrick who recently passed away - a great loss to the alt photo community. Read more.
