The Photolounge was open at the Old Truman Bewery for a few days as part of East London’s Photomonth, so I took a look. The Old Truman Brewery at the north end of Brick Lane about 10 minutes walk from Liverpool Street station. There are lots of retail opportunities but above ground level there is lots of space available for exhibitions.

Some of the 30,000 entries in Photobox’s Around the World in 80 Days competition were also on display:

But I do like  to see the work of young photographers who have matured enough to be telling me truths about the wider world.

  2. Hi Malc
