Exhibitions at St Martin-in-the-Fields

About A Strand by Lewis Phillips (until Sunday 9 August) is based on the different extremes of life revolving around one of London’s major streets. The Strand is home to some of the world’s most famous landmarks, The Royal Courts of Justice, The Savoy, Somerset House along with elite restaurants and shops.

It is also home to some of the poorest people in the UK including some of the 5,000 people living homeless on the streets of London. This photographic essay depicts the huge diversity of the area from the high flyers to the poor who use the streets as a sanctuary for survival.

The exhibition subjects have shared their stories of success and struggle through their words and photographs. The project is hard-hitting but there it also shows the triumphs of people digging their way out of drug and alcohol abuse, mental health problems and long term unemployment in order to move on with their lives.

In addition, from the 7 August a stunning exhibition of art and photographs by homeless people who use The Connection’s services will be on display in the Crypt at St Martin’s.

It's a show not to be missed, so come down with friends and family and enjoy an immense range of creative talent on display. Some art will be available for sale and proceeds will support The Connection's services.
