The River Within - London

2 September to 16 November 2019

Come and share a journey through London by kayak. With every picture taken from this small boat, you will get a unique and intimate perspective of the Thames. 

About the exhibition

Ancient and contemporary London, from boats and buildings to riverbed art and misty sunrises. The familiar Thames is reframed seen from so close to the water. Even if you know the river, you will find something new to surprise you.

Photographer Annette Price is a professional photographer specialising in outdoor environments and adventure sports. Used to working in, on and under water, she takes us beneath pontoons, inside tunnels, up tributaries and between houseboats. Sharing her intimate water level view, we see the changing London skyline coming into a new and sometimes startling focus.

Kayaking photography must be planned to work with the ever-changing tides, weird currents and waves created by wind blowing against the tide and wash from passing boats. Juggling these unpredictably changing elements delivers constantly renewing opportunities to reveal hidden gems, as we look outwards from the River Within.

Totally Thames is an annual celebration of the River Thames with a creative and diverse programme that includes art installations and exhibitions, photography, dance, music and much more.

The River Within - London is a part of Totally Thames 2019 that runs from Sunday 1 to Monday 30 September 2019.
