England Uncensored at White Cloth Gallery
Peter Dench’s England Uncensored will launch at the White Cloth Gallery today, alongside work from the ‘Great British Public’ as part of the gallery’s Best of British summer season. The exhibition includes the award winning photographers, Simon Roberts and Zed Nelson.
England Uncensored is a warts-and-all account of real England by celebrated photojournalist, Peter Dench. During a summer of British celebrations, the exhibition provides a geographical and socially unrestricted tour around England, covering themes of love, ethnicity, style, gastronomy and of course - the weather.
From the book of the same name, England Uncensored takes us from traditional Morris dancing at the annual Hobby Horse Festival in Oxfordshire to some of England’s most unusual events such as the War and Peace show in Kent – which gives civilians a license to dress up as Nazi soldiers and drive around in military vehicles.
Twelve years in the making, the exhibition is not only a laugh-out-loud romp through this often badly behaved nation - it also provides an underlying social commentary with the power to both amuse and shock all at the same time.
In line with Dench’s exhibition, the White Cloth Gallery will be hosting a selection of work from the Great British Public, recently shown at the London Festival of Photography, as part of its Best of British summer season. White Cloth Gallery’s ticketed launch event on the 19th of July is being held in support of Leeds based charity, St. Gemma’s Hospice, and all proceeds from the night will be donated to the charity.
