This weekend there are three must-do events we can’t wait to visit. From exhibitions, art fairs and a seafood brunch, we have something for everyone.
“When we do not know why the photographer has taken a picture and when we do not know why we are looking at it, all of a sudden we discover something that we start seeing. I like this confusion.” – Saul Leiter.
It is only recently that Saul Leiter (1923-2013) has received due recognition for his pioneering role in the emergence of colour photography. He moved to New York intent on becoming a painter, yet ended up working for magazines such as Harper’s Bazaar, Elle and British Vogue and became known for his impressionistic colour street scenes.
As early as 1946, and thus well before representatives of the 1970s new colour photography school (such as William Eggleston and Stephen Shore), Leiter was using Kodachrome colour slide film for his free artistic shots, despite it being despised by artists of the day.
You can see his exhibition at The Photographers Gallery, Oxford Street from 22 Jan – 3 April.
Fish Market are collaborating with new foodie start up ‘Claw’ to bring you a special weekend brunch menu. CLAW’s menu features highlights including the Crab Burger with handpicked Devonshire crab, samphire, claw sauce and the Lobster BLT made with Padstow lobster, smoked pancetta, Isle of Wight tomatoes, citrus aioli. You can also choose the CLAW Bloody Mary, served with a side of Shrimp Grilled Cheese.
The pop-up is only running for the following four weekends – so head down soon to avoid disappointment.
