Brentford: The Shape I'm In
  • London Fringe

An exhibition of street photography taken locally in Brentford, each with its own story to tell. The exhibition is themed around 'reducing Brentford to basic shapes' where the use of shapes in every photograph provides a striking and unusual vision of Brentford today.

The group originated in a Hounslow Adult Education class and the students, local photographers of all ages and backgrounds, formed Better Pictures as an informal and friendly way of continuing to improve their photographic ability.

The Better Pictures' photographers meet regularly to practice and improve their skills. Photographic outings in Hounslow, Richmond and further afield; sharing and appraisal of work and, of course, socializing over food and drink, are key to the Better Pictures ethos. The works in this exhibition convey the fun and enjoyment of photography shared by the group. The pictures displayed here represent this year's theme of a changing landscape in Brentford.

Many of the Better Pictures photographers have had their pictures presented in public exhibitions and some have even won awards for their work. You can find out more about Better Pictures, and view some more of their photographs, on their website: https://betterpicturesblog.wordpress.com/brentford-the-shape-im-in-2020-exhibition/

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
