An Easter Weekend Idea: Simon Frederick Exhibition @ Gallery Different

Simon Frederick is a very talented photographer who is potentially on the brink of major recognition for his work. He has spent a number of years perfecting his work in Lisbon, but has now returned to London and is keen to mark his arrival with a (super cool) bang. His upcoming exhibition "My Mates at Work" is set to be a pivotal exhibition in his career, and will certainly mark his homecoming aptly. The exhibition will be showing at Gallery Different on Percy Street in London from Friday 29th March - Friday 5th April, so be sure to make the most of the Easter Weekend and make it a priority to go and see Simon's unique work.

The exhibition is packed full of portraits of the rich, famous, and industry giants (from various different industries). I am lucky enough to have had a sneak preview of some of the portraits that will be displayed at the exhibition, and there are some beautiful images of Johnnie Sapong (above - hairdresser to anyone who is anyone), Mark Powell (a well-respected tailor), David Adjaye (architect), Azzi Glasser (perfume designer extraordinaire), and David Harewood MBE (Actor). And two images that I am really looking forward to seeing are the portraits of Sadie Frost (actress) and Steve Lazarides (art dealer and curator). This truly is an exhibition not to be missed!

On the exclusive opening night, Simon and the gallery have very generously offered to support the charity that I work for - Street Child World Cup - and so I am incredibly excited to be attending the launch night to represent the charity. I'll be blogging all about the night after the Easter Weekend, but I just wanted to share the exhibition with you all in case you wanted to take advantage of our bank holidays that are coming up to go and see Simon's wonderful set of work. 

Let me know if you do manage to go along!
