Following up its recent successful `Road to 2012: Aiming High` exhibition, The National Portrait Gallery is showcasing a considered examination of the communities in the East End lying in the shadow of the Olympic stadium.
Entitled `Road to 2012: Facing East`, the exhibition includes a series of photographs taken by fine art and photography students from the University of East London, documenting the impact of the Games on residents surrounding the landmark arena.
The exhibition added further ‘texture and vibrancy` to the gallery`s overall Road to 2012 Project according to Liz Smith, the NPG`s Director of Participation and Learning.
This thoughtful and considered take on the overall effect of the Olympics on London residents represents just one of many fantastic cultural experiences available throughout the capital.
