The World In London
THE WORLD IN LONDON
The Photographers Gallery embarks on an ambitious photography project for 2012, celebrating London's diversity and photography's unique role in capturing the human form.
The Photographers Gallery have commissioned over 200 UK and international photographers to make portraits of Londoners, each of whom was born in one of the 203 nations competing in London's 2012 Olympic Games.
The portraits will feature in an outdoor exhibition in London during Summer 2012, accompanied online by interviews and stories from the people portrayed.
