So another day passes, yet another exciting trip to central London was on the horizon! On Friday me and my trusty blog photographer Faiza (who now has Instagram, go follow her!) got the opportunity to be part of the blogger preview evening for the late Dennis Hopper exhibition that will be open to the public from the 26th June - 19th October 2014; so it is definitely a date for your diaries if you a photography lover or are around the Burlington Gardens area.
If you don't know who Dennis Hopper was, he was a highly talented artist, photographer, filmmaker and Hollywood actor who starred in huge blockbusters like Easy Rider (which they actually showed on a projector, near the end of the exhibit), Apocalypse Now and Blue Velvet just to name a few. His craft and his legacy speaks volumes, as he does not have one but two exhibits on this summer honouring his work; the current one at RA and a film showing at the BFI Southbank - so definitely something to visit if you love classic films.
My ootd for evening, my cardigan is from New Look, I borrowed the necklace from my sister, my pretty dress is from Boohoo, my belt is from ASOS and my shoes are from Next.
Now I am not arty person, just ask my art teacher haha (please don't) but I really like photography and this exhibit definitely didn't disappoint, I liked how real and emotion-filled each photograph is. Dennis Hopper really had a gift for capturing people's true emotions in the heat of the moment and me and Faiza were definitely shocked at how many locations, events and people he actually got a chance to shoot. He really had an amazing and inspiration career.
I hope you enjoyed this post lovelies.
Until next time
