London by night from the air (@LaforetAIR)

Sometimes you can discover the vision of your capital city from a different angle/point of view.

This is what Vincent Laforet has done!

This particular work is titled “The AIR project“.

Two hours in the air at 6,000 feet to capture beautiful images of London. Great work!

Rare NASA photographs @breeselittle #London

Always great to discover new London based exhibition spaces (or unknown by most some people until now).

BREESE LITTLE is the art space located at

30b  Great Sutton Street

London

EC1V ODU

The gallery represents contemporary artists based in the UK and internationally, additionally organising exhibitions with non-gallery artists... Source

It is fantastic to visit new places and put aside the usual spaces such as Tate, Serpentine, NPG…etc

For almost a month – from 19th September to 25th October 2014 – some incredible images taken in space by astronauts (1961 – 1980) will be on display.

There is a real vintage feel because these particular photographs were genuinely taken when film cameras were the only way to capture a scene.
