Michael Heffernan/27 Stops Exhibition at East Gallery
Hot on the heels of his success last week at the AOP Awards, images from another of Michael Heffernan’s personal projects are in a collective show at the East Gallery in Brick lane from this evening until the 12th October. The Uncertain States Exhibition features two images from a personal project Michael undertook in 2010 called 27 Stops. The London Underground is comprised of 11 lines with a total of 27 terminuses. In 2010 Michael travelled to the communities at the ends of each of these lines to shoot a single portrait. The objective was to photograph a series of 27 portraits in locations that define the outer reaches of London, to portray some of the people that live in or visit the end of the line at evocatively named places like Cockfosters, Barking, Stanmore and Morden.
Here are some images from the project, please go to Michael's website to see the full set of images.
