Press Release from theprintspace:
Leading East London photographic gallery theprintspace will make the virtual a reality this September when it opens its doors for SoShowMe, an exhibition curated entirely from its social media interactions.
With the growing use of social media in our daily lives, theprintspace will enter new territories by showcasing – for the first time – a range of fascinating photography compiled through monthly Facebook competitions and a Flickr group. All the photographs have been chosen by acclaimed photographer and photojournalist judges, over the last year.

Featuring a wide range of fantastic photography, with themes such as light, documentary, portraiture and landscapes, the exhibition is an exciting and colourful celebration of social media from photographers all over the world.
theprintspace’s Max Munton said, “Social media has provided a great way for the sharing and discussion of photography, provoking passionate live debate and opinion. theprintspace gallery replicates that online network with its unique environment for photography and art lovers to meet.”
SoShowMe opens at theprintspace gallery at 74 Kingsland Road, Shoreditch on Thursday, 2nd September from 7pm-10pm with drinks provided. The exhibition then continues from 3rd-15th September, Monday-Friday 9am-7pm. Admission free. – END –
One of my photographs “Smash Me and Laugh in my Face” was chosen from the dedicated Flickr group to feature in this exhibition, which will be the first time my work has been exhibited anywhere, so I am understandably quite excited!
