OUR WORLD IN FRAME LAUNCH IN LONDON
Dec 3nd – Dec 23rd, Chepstow Gallery, Notting Hill,W11.
Our World in Frame launch a pop-up photographic exhibition, at the iconic Chepstow Gallery in Notting Hill, London. The exhibition which spans across a captivating 10,000sq ft listed building has mainly laid empty but will be rejuvenated and decorated to former glory for Our World in Frame’s debut exhibition opening to the public for free from Dec 3rd– December 23rd.
Across three floors and seven unique spaces people can discover and indulge in a range of photographer’s work, hosting events, facilitating workshops and much more. Over 100 unique pieces will be on view covering 5 categories of nature, built environment, abstract & light, science & technology and people & culture.
Submissions include photographers such as Kofi Allen, Jenny Hardcore, Carol Anne Storey and Jesus Mandriñan and the entries will be curated by the OWIF team, overseen by Turner Prize winner, Yinka Shonibare, Pandora Lavender of Central St. Martins and Hayley Peterson of Rankin.
The focus of Our World In Frame’s exhibition is predominantly selling artwork to support African Passions, who are a charity with a firm focus on the role of sport in life skills development. Their work involves the creation of sporting facilities and a ‘Coach Carter’ approach to building confidence and team spirit amongst children and their communities in Kenya.
“We are a creative collective who share the team-building ethics and values of African Passions. The opportunity has arisen to make something impacting that can also help a truly inspirational cause. The future for the Our World In Frame is bright and we hope to fulfill its potential” says Joel Bravette, the company founder.
Our World In Frame 2010 (OWIF) is a pop-up installation with a difference. The brainchild of one of the founders of The Urban Times, OWIF is firstly an online homage to framed photography and, secondly, an offline exhibition of iconic images in aid of charitable and noble causes. Although our full site is yet to go live, we already have over 200 contributors ready to join our visual revolution.

Prices ranging from £200 – £2000 will be available to buy in aid of African Passions.
