Photography #ChristianDior

Following on from my Christian Dior post a few days ago, I thought I’d share a few more in the form of a montage, especially as a total of 594,994 people visited the Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams, a record for a V&A exhibition.

Gr8at: Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams Exhibition

I don’t normally reference fashion (save perhaps for Fashion and Art at The Chocolate Show and Film Quizzes: Stylish and Iconic Female Outfits) but I had to share these photos from The Christian Dior Exhibition at the V&A. Are you a big fan of Dior? Have you been to the V&A? They do great exhibitions, including the Pink Floyd one last year.

Gr8at: Good Grief Charlie Brown

I quoted Charlie Brown recently, with a photo from the very fun exhibition at Somerset House, Good Grief,Charlie Brown! But i just had to add some more to give you a sense of how great it was to see the Charles M. Schulz’s characters brought to life again.

Line(s) of the Day #Peanuts

charlie brown

Worrying won’t stop the bad stuff from happening, it just stops you from enjoying the good.

As said by Charlie Brown in Peanuts, the hugely popular comic strip written by Charles M. Schulz. The photograph is from Good Grief, Charlie Brown!, an exhibition at the Embankment Galleries at Somerset House, featuring original Peanuts cartoons as well as work from other artists inspired by the cartoon itself. I’ve previously quoted Charlie Brown’s very accurate take on chocolate here

There are always so many great exhibitions and events at Canary Wharf. I’ve covered some in the past, including the Rememberance Art Trail and a specialist flower sculpture, as well the 2017 Winter Lights. So I just had to share my photos of the 2018 Winter Lights, starting with the indoor shots.

Gr8at: Flamboyant Outfits Worn by #ElvisPresley in the 1970s

Is there a more important and more influential individual in music than Elvis Presley? ‘The King’ had everything. Looks, charm, sex appeal, the most wonderful voice and a love of music that always shone through. John Lennon himself said The Beatles would have never existed without him. That’s why demand was so strong for another Elvis exhibition at the 02, only two years after the last one. Below are eight of the most striking outfits worn by Elvis in the early 1970s, as shown in Elvis on Tour. Do you have a favourite? Can you ever imagine wearing any of them?

Gr8at: #EnchantedWoodland Part 3

I’ve displayed quite a few photographic exhibitions in the past, such as this year’s National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year and Astronomy Photographer of the Year. But I do try try and show photographic events I’ve been to in person too. So it’s no real surprise I’ve added a third post to parts 1 and 2 of my time at the Enchanted Woodland at Syon Park. As always feel free to let me know if there were any in particular that caught your eye.

Things to See: Star Wars Identities at the 02

Star Wars is a phenomenon that shows no sign of abating. Ever since its introduction with A New Hope in 1977 it has blown audiences away with its fantasy charm, good v evil battles, memorable heroes, sinister villains and, in the lightsabre, the best weapon ever. Even its recent spin-off was a huge smash. So when I saw there was an exhibition  entitled Star Wars Identities at the 02 featuring over 200 props, models, costumes and artwork, I just had to go. Tosha Michelle who was in town, came along for the ride.
