Underground Photo Exhibition Opening at theprintspace Gallery

theprintspace gallery are running a free photographic exhibition from 2nd - 21st March 2012 called '
Underground'. It brings together three photographers exploring a subterranean theme. 

London based street photographer, David Solomons will be exhibiting a selection of images from his series ‘Underground’ taken on the Tube. The images were shot over a three month period between 1994 and 1995, using colour with a flash to illuminate the dark interiors of the London Underground.

David said "On seeing Bruce Davidson's Subway, I became inspired to produce something similar for my first serious attempt at a project.  Using a flashgun on the Tube was a pretty scary proposition and one where I was mostly able to only fire off one shot at a time, unless I was able to ask some subjects beforehand.  It became a very steep learning curve, and has since stood me in good stead for my regular street work (which I now practice without using flash)"
