Two snippets today from L A Noble Gallery: the launch of the gallery’s London Life Competition and a reminder that Chris Steele-Perkins wonderful show, Japan Suite, ends on 1 February. So why not head over to north London and see work by Steele-Perkins who joined the Viva agency in 1976 and Magnum Photos in 1979 – the year that his first monograph, The Teds was published. The book is still available and has since become a classic of British documentary photography.

LONDON LIFE COMPETITION
The London Life Photography Competition is open to all and L A Noble Gallery is looking for “dynamic, exquisite, challenging and creative images… that capture the current age of austerity and decadence in all its forms to be included in an exhibition in Summer 2014”.

From the Roaring 1920s to The Great Depression of the 1930s “it was an age of unbelievable wealth, glamour, freedom and decadence where not only artistic, but also individual, expression broke new ground. However, it was also a time of great social upheaval as millions lived in poverty and/or faced persecution on social, political, religious and ethnic grounds. Thus, many parallels can be drawn between this period and today. The spirit of the lifestyle that this ethos encapsulated, serves as an escape from the current economic climate, just as it did in the 1930s.”
