David Cameron and Nick Clegg had better make sure their offices are spic-and-span, we’re coming over. Love Art Londoners will be privy to an exclusive behind the scenes poke around the Houses of Parliament guided by Simon Roberts, the official photographer of this year’s general election. We tried to book Guy Fawkes but he was unavailable.
The 25 photographs in the Election Project exhibition, one for each day Simon spent on the campaign trail, include the precise moment Gordon Brown called Gillian Duffy a ‘bigoted woman’, a gaffe that led to the darkest day of his leadership, and the moment David Cameron posted his voting card firmly in the Lib Dem ballot box on polling day. The Election Project also includes a 15 metre installation of the 1,700 photographs submitted by the general public. The creative talents of the good people of Britain know no bounds.
This event is for Members Only (15 Places)
