Ashley Jordan Gordan @ The Book Club

Last friday we popped down to the aforementioned Ashley Jordan Gordan photography exhibition at The Book Club. Here are the visual highlights of the night:

Although nothing to do with the exhibition, in the adjoining room, this amazing live music display took place:

The book club living up to its name in the cosy underground, log-cabinesque back room, with Ashley Jordan Gordan’s pics upon the wooden walls:

Late into the night some deeeeee-jays came on to spin some tunes, including this amazing silver-haired fox:

All in all, a tremendous night.

Girl on Kingsland Road

Buying the Guardian on a Saturday is sometimes as close as I get to all the major exhibitions I want to see in London. But this weekend I am making the effort to go to the National Portrait Gallery where my amazingly talented friend Ashley has her very own image in the annual Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize exhibition. Pretty amazing really. Her image, ‘Girl on Kingsland Road’ feels beautifully spontaneous yet at the same time manages to capture that sense of ‘mutual awareness’ between subject and photographer where an ‘understood’ pose is representative of a socially visual generation. Never without her camera, friends, myself included, are well accustomed to being snapped at on random outings and finding ourselves on her blog. Always beautifully executed though Ashley is like the Polaroid camera, she has that unique eye and talent to make everything just look beautiful! Cool Hunting recently interviewed her, but make sure you pop to the NPG Gallery before February 14th to see not only Ashley’s entry but the other entrants and winners of this year’s competition.
