Exhibition of photographs taken in Battersea's Ethelburga Tower

Click here for more picturesLondon's Geffrye Museum is hosting a fascinating new exhibition by photographer Mark Cowper in which he explores the interiors of Ethelburga Tower, Battersea where he has lived for the last 20 years.

Cowper approached his neighbours and asked to photograph their living rooms, just as he found them at the moment he made the request, in order to capture the way the residents are living. The resulting collection of images gives a fascinating insight into how these near-identical architectural shells have been shaped by the contrasting lifestyles, interests, and tastes of the residents into distinctly individual homes. The exhibition runs from 7 April to 30 August, and you can see more photographs from the exhibition by clicking here Admission is free.

You're invited to join Mark Cowper in the exhibition gallery on Saturday 9 May at 2.00pm as he gives a personal insight into living in Ethelburga Tower and into his experience of recording the space. There is no charge, and no need to book in advance.
