30 photos from the Push The Boat Out opening party taken by Richard Barr

'Push The Boat Out' is a group show curated by James F. Johnston and Harry Pye with Amelie Lindsay that's on at The Art Academy, 155 Walworth Road SE17 until the 30th of July. The organisers were delighted Richard Barr attended the show's opening party and that he brought his Canon E0S 600D camera with him. Originally from Bangor, County Down, he is now based in South London. Richard Barr is a very versatile and talented photographer with a knack for capturing magic moments. These 30 images serve as a good introduction to the exhibition and will hopefully whet your appetite enough for you to come and see the work for yourself. Today (Sat 28/07/18) at 3pm, the esteemed critic Sacha Craddock will be discussing the show with the curators plus Nicola Hicks, Corin Johnson, Cedar Lewisohn, and Kate Murdoch. This event is free and open to all (please try to arrive a bit before 3pm). You can also see the show on Saunday 29th of July (from 11am till 5pm) and on Monday the 30th of July (from 10.30am till 6.30pm).
