So, I'm not a regular blogger anymore, but that won't keep me from shamelessly plugging my friend Gesche's photography project and accompanying Kickstarter campaign! I'm uncouth like that.
Gesche is asking for support for raising funds for her Go for Gold! exhibition. Go for Gold! will be on view at the Underground Gallery in London from July 27th – August 9th, 2012.
Gesche started working on the Go for Gold! series six years ago and has continually updated the project since, critically documenting the social and geographical transformation of East London’s landscape in preparation for the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games
Gesche sees the current exhibition "as an important counterweight to the Cultural Olympiad and the images that have been distributed by the Olympic Delivery Authority and London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games. That's also why it is so important to me to show the series while the Olympics are actually on."
Through signing up for Kickstarter, Gesche is hoping to raise funds for gallery hire, the private view, and insuring her artwork. You can read more on the project here or visit Gesche's website to find out more about her work. The following photos are part of the exhibition:
