Sponsored by Nikon, the stock photo agency Getty Images opened a new Gallery at Westfield Stratford City.
The current exhibition showcases a unique selection of London’s most iconic black and white photographies, reflecting the city’s rich visual history.
Located on the main thoroughfare and next to Jamie’s Italian Kitchen, it takes only a 30 second walk to the Olympic Park.
Adrian Murrell (Senior Vice President, Global Editorial) says: “We are absolutely delighted to be part of the launch of Westfield Stratford City by being able to showcase London’s most iconic imagery through our prestigious exhibition space, opening up the doors to our vast photography archive.
We believe our content will help inspire Londoners to get further excited about the impending London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games and the magnificent city which we are living in.”
Visiting the gallery is for free. I loved looking through the collection and catching a bit of London’s glamourous and historic sphere.
The Getty Images Gallery is a nice way to combine a shopping trip to Stratford with a touch of culture and enjoy a tasty pizza at Jamie Oliver’s restaurant afterwards.
