Chiswick Through The Camera Lens 2019
There are some fantastic photographers living in Chiswick: a surprising number of award-winning, internationally known professional photographers as well as keen amateurs who make Chiswick the focus of their pictures.
Chiswick Through the Camera Lens is a collection of photographs – portraits, landscapes and surreal creations – all shot in Chiswick, brought together by The Chiswick Calendar for an exhibition at the Clayton Hotel Chiswick from Monday 1 April to Saturday 11 May. Chiswick Through the Camera Lens is sponsored by Snappy Snaps Chiswick, who have done much of the printing, mounting and framing. As it is in the atrium of the hotel you can pop in and see it at any time of day. These are the photographers taking part, each with one of the pictures they have on show.
