A new exhibition opened at the KK Outlet on Hoxton Square showing work from photographer Matt Stuart. Matt is a regular at the coffee shop and told me about the exhibition. Armed with a small Leica, patience and lots of optimism, he captures the small things that pass you by, the things that make you wish you had taken your camera out with you, the things in life that are just natural. This was my favorite piece of the exhibition showing the head of a peacock with the covered skip resembling the bird’s lower body.
Kew Gardens is the Royal Botanic Gardens of England and this week my housemate and I decided to go for a little trip there together. I don’t know what I was expecting from a large area of plants and trees, but it was a great escape from the city and a chance to breathe in some real fresh air. There is a exhibition on at the moment called ‘Tropical Extravaganza’ showing exotic plants and cacti in enormous greenhouses. The height and beauty of the plants is incredible and it’s amazing to think that they are all grown from what we walk over everyday. It may be London Fashion Week but there really is nothing more beautiful than natural beauty.
