Top Deck Exhibition Launch

Also on Thursday night in London is a new exhibition by PYMCA photographers James Pearson-Howes and Will Robson-Scott in conjunction with Utile and Mother London.

Top Deck, is a series of images made over the course of two years on the top decks of east London buses giving a new a perspective on the monotony of the every day commute. The work will result in a newspaper publication and a two-week show at renowned advertising agency, Mother.

Foreword for the publication is written by journalist Justin Quirk, who writes for the Guardian and is the editor of HOUSE magazine. Here is a little excerpt:

In popular myth, Margaret Thatcher reportedly said that any man
still travelling by bus after the age of 30 could consider himself a
failure. The quote is almost certainly apocryphal, but it stuck in
the public consciousness because it sounded like the kind of thing
that an arch-conservative would say; cars were the preserve of the
rich and successful, whereas buses were how the poor, the failed
and the antisocial travelled around the city. If there’s any truth in
that distinction, then it damns an awful lot of people in London.

Justin Quirk  2011

The publication, which is a limited addition off 500 copies, will be on sale here or pick one up on the night.
