Sense the City
Saturday 21 January - Sunday 18 March 2012
Have you ever noticed what makes London a city that never stops, or stopped to take a picture of the elements of the city that help London thrive?Londonist, London’s website for news and culture, and London Transport Museum, invited Flickr users throughout November 2011 to submit photographs that captured the hustle and bustle of London, and the activity that helps make London flourish and thrive. 648 images were submitted and of these 50 were shorlisted for inclusion in Sense the City - the dynamic Flickr wall exhibition which will be on display at the museum from now until Sunday 18 March 2012.
Sense the City is a photography project inspired by the museums current exhibition Sense and the City: smart, connected and on the move exhibition. This exhibition unravels the digital future and poses questions about mobility, society and work in the Capital over the next decade, and compares this with past visions of the future. The exhibition closes on 18 March 2012.
Of the 50 shortlisted photographs three were selected at the exhibition private view for special commendation by our advisers Clive Birch, Visiting Tutor on the Royal College of Art’s Vehicle Design Programme and Johanna Empson, Talks and Events Programmer at the Photographers Gallery. These were Tube Story by Danielle Houghton, Better to just ignore him... by Stephen Banks, and See Red by Geoff Holland.
