To celebrate this year’s Black History Month, Canary Wharf Arts + Events and the Association of Photographers (AOP) are holding a special month-long exhibition. The exhibition looks to celebrate Black culture through the images on display the stories of the photographers who have taken them.
e launched the competition in June this year, asking photographers to submit images that display the creativity, beauty and strength that is found within the Black community in Britain as well as the challenges faced.
A gold and silver winner were selected and are on display alongside the works for the six runners up. The competition was judged by the AOP for All, a group striving to increase awareness of photographers of colour by making both them, and their work more visible within the industry.
This exhibition is part of Black History Month at Canary Wharf, which also includes dance performances from Joseph Toonga’s Just Us Dance Theatre and literature curated by Booker Prize Winner Bernardine Evartisto.
