Exposure : Lives at Sea
We were super excited to be invited into the National Maritime Museum last week for a sneaky preview of their brand new small but perfectly formed exhibition - Exposure: Lives at Sea. Through the camera lense of six salty seafarers and researchers this photographic exhibition provides a really fascinating snapshot into their everyday working lives. An Alaskan fisherman doing a handstand on his frozen fishing boat, to a Chief Officer on a vast shipping container taking a time-lapse film you can expect some pretty professional looking snaps.
Conserving the shark filled reefs of Mexico to the isolation of the Antarctica it's a truly remarkable insight into what life is really like for these seasoned ocean workers.
The penguins waiting in line getting ready for their icy launch on 5 Dec made us smile too. Book your tickets and glide around this socially-distanced rink right next to the historic Queen's House.
If you have time nip over to the Old Royal Naval College and gaze at the British 'Sistine Chapel'- the jaw-dropping Painted Hall that took 19 years to paint. The most beautiful hall in London we think.
We are also bursting to see NEW Masterpieces from Buckingham Palace opening at The Queens Gallery on 4 Dec showcasing 65 paintings which usually hang in the spectacular State Rooms in Buck Palace. Titian, Vermeer, Rembrandt, Van Dyck, Rubens, Claude and Canaletto.will will all be lining up! A once in a lifetime chance to see these priceless paintings normally tucked away in the Palace. Check back for our review next week.
Another one not to miss is the V&A's largest ever installation of children's artworks All Will Be Well: Children's Rainbows 🌈 from Lockdown. Over 100 pictures will be on display. Open Wed-Sun from 2 Dec. NHS workers get 10% off in the shop.
