The exhibition, which has taken two years to shoot, is titled ‘Waged London’ documents the working lives of millions, who, through their often low-paid labour in areas such as healthcare, transportation, manufacturing and tourism, underpin the entire economy of London.
Larry Herman’s work already enjoys international acclaim and has led to him winning several awards as well as grants from the Ford Foundation and the International Fund for Concerned Photography in New York. He was also a finalist in the International Fund for Documentary Photography, San Francisco.
“The opportunity to showcase true silver halide prints to such a large and diverse audience is great news, not just for me, but for the wider medium of monochrome photography”, said Herman.
Sponsored by Ilford Photo, the specialist monochrome business of Harman Technology, the exhibition can be seen at Herman Focus on Imaging, Stand E60, Hall 9 at the Birmingham NEC.
