Exhibiton: ‘The English Summer Season’ by Peter Dench
30th April 2019 - 28th June 2019Free
Join us at the Wex Photo Video Gallery in London for ‘The English Summer Season’ – the latest exhibition by Olympus Visionary Peter Dench.
We are proud to present a collection of previously unpublished work entitled ‘The English Summer Season’ by renowned British photographer Peter Dench that will be exhibited at the Wex Photo Video Gallery from 30 April to 28 June 2019.
Taken over the last two summers, Peter Dench has captured the spirit of typically English sporting events, such as Henley Royal Regatta, Cartier Polo, Epsom and Royal Ascot, which are now frequented each year by characters from all echelons of society. The humorous work portrays the eccentricities, colourful personalities and outrageous antics of spectators enjoying the generous hospitality on offer.
Peter commented, “The events I’ve portrayed were once the preserve of the rich upper classes, but through the years, have become open to a much broader audience. The rules of society have been rewritten. With this reportage, my intention is to capture the humour, the entertainment and the downright craziness of the scenes I have encountered in a light-hearted but truthful manner.”
Throughout his 20 year career, Peter has become a widely recognised name thanks to his distinctive narrative and documentary photography shot in numerous countries around the world, with a particular focus on the quirks and behaviour of the English at home.
