Through the Lens of Roger Mayne

Confessed as one of Britain’s frontrunners in "humanitarian" photography, until 11th June at Photographer’s Gallery in Soho, feast your eyes upon the work of Roger Mayne and understand why he earnt his title as the country’s most celebrated post-war photographers. Mayne took inspiration wherever he could find it and would even ‘climb over people, if necessary, to get his picture,’ claims daughter of the photographer, Katkin Tremayne.

This thought-provoking exhibition will showcase some of Mayne’s most famous work, including the pre-gentrified photographs of the slums of Southam Street in West London in the late 50s. Mayne was so fixated on this particular street that he visited it an astounding 27 times, building his portfolio of this London location to approximately 1,400 photographs. That’s what I call artistic passion!

In addition to a that display of captivating images, this exhibition will also feature creative stills of bicycle factories in Nottingham and urban pictures of council estates in Sheffield, collated from his quest around Britain over his lifetime, capturing the moments that enthused him the most.

Escape to the Riviera at Mondrian London

Don’t let the grey weather deceive you, because summer is upon us at Mondrian Hotel at London’s Southbank. As of Monday 22nd May until September, Mondrian London will open its doors to its Riviera-inspired Summer Terrace. This seasonal opening will transport you to the glistening coastline of The Côte d'Azur while you sip on one of the bespoke Grey Goose cocktails from the exclusive summer menu.

Guests will enjoy sweet summer evenings with panoramic views over St. Paul’s and the iconic City skyline. Plus, there’s no need to feel anxious about getting caught in a spontaneous burst of cold wind the British weather can often surprise us with, the staff will be prepared with a selection of plush blankets and cushions at your signal.

After a long, hard week at work, nothing could be better than chowing down on Giant Ceviche Tacos with a refreshing Transatlantic Travel cocktail to match. It will be a true taste of summer.
