For our final month we’re delighted to welcome a panel of guest judges from London (and beyond)’s burgeoning art scene.
With our ethos of providing exposure to emerging, talented photographers, it seemed right to centre the final month on some of our young and home-grown art entrepreneurs. Our final month’s panel is comprised of Christine Santa Ana, Phil Anderson, Miriam Otterbeck, and Sebastian Richter, and is a celebration of London-focused talent, creativity and ambition.
Sebastian and Miriam hold the fort at theprintspace gallery in East London (our home for our upcoming inaugural exhibition). theprintspace offers a stunning modern gallery which has previously hosted the Professional Photographer of the Year Awards, Creative Review Photography Annual and the Hasselblad Masters. Miriam is also a talented freelance writer, and Sebastian is a gifted photographer in his own right.
Of the Afternoon
‘Of the Afternoon’ is the brainchild and passion of Phil Anderson. Each edition is a beautiful and considered body of work, as informative as it is attractive; with the first half of the magazine sharing work featured in pop-up exhibitions around the country, and the second half featuring interviews and studio visits with young photographers all over the world. It’s a labour of love and a masterclass in stunning image selection and tight editing.
Christine Santa Ana
Christine Santa Ana is a busy independent Curator with a background in photography. In 2011 she co-founded Underground Gallery, curating over twenty five exhibitions and working with many talented artists. Christine currently produces pop up exhibitions with Of The Afternoon, throughout cities in the UK. Her work is both fresh and timeless and her blog is well worth checking out for her sharp opinions and insider view.
