First Impressions: Portraits from Prison. Great exhibition @stmartininthefields @koestlertrust
★ ★ ★ ★
+
An exhibition of prisoners paintings curated by the Koestler Trust (google them for more information about their work helping prisoners through art). It's in the foyer of St Martin-in-the-Fields until 9 June 2018.
+
From the St Martin-in-the-fields website: "The exhibition has been curated by the Koestler Trust, at the invitation of the Prisons Mission of Churches Together in Westminster. The Prisons Mission provides support and assistance to multifaith chaplaincy teams in prisons and aims to ensure that prisoners while out of sight are not out of mind. The exhibition showcases a selection of portraiture and sculpture entered into the Koestler Awards – an annual scheme run by the Koestler Trust for over 55 years, inspiring participation in the arts by people in the UK’s criminal justice system".

The guy who produced these paintings didn't seem too optimistic. I'm sure it's the same for women.

WINDSOR CLEANSED OF HOMELESS FOR THE ROYAL WEDDING.

The Ark project is a fantastically innovative idea, a double decker bus that has beds for 10 rough sleepers and a kitchen to prepare a hot meal for them. But despite the bus being bedecked with congratulations to the royal couple, it has been seized by armed police on a technicality and removed from the streets of Windsor ahead of the Royal wedding.

In the run up to the royal wedding the leader of Berkshire conservative council Simon Dudley wrote to Thames Valley Police demanding rough sleepers should be removed from the town. After a backlash from the public, the council changed stratergy and confiscated rough sleepers rucksacks and sleeping bags to make Windsor look pretty for the Royal couple on their big day.

Perhaps a better stratergy would have been to hand out plastic Union Jack flags to the homeless so they melted into the hundreds of royal fans who slept out the night before the wedding but didn't have their sleeping bags confiscated.

Victorian Giants: The Birth of Art Photography ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ I loved this exhibition. Unfortunately, it's closing tomorrow, or I would go again.
+
It explored the relationship between four ground-breaking Victorian artists: Julia Margaret Cameron, Lewis Carroll, Lady Clementina Hawarden and Oscar Rejlander, and looked at the emergence of art photography. It showed the influence of historical painting and the association with the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood.
+
Julia Margaret Cameron didn't start working with photography until someone bought her a camera as a present when she was 48. As an oldster, it's always good to see people starting new things later in life.
+
For more images follow the hashtag #victoriangiants and google the National Portrait Gallery and the four artists. There's a lot of material on the website of the V&A.

Bit of a long one, but here goes the sad story of my attempt to help the homeless tonight... #Homeless #HelpTheHomeless #London #RoughSleepers #ITried #Sad

Tonight, after walking my friend to her train, instead of hopping on my tube to make my own way home, I decided to do something nice & I went to Co-Op & Tesco and spent around £12/13 on 10 sandwiches to give to homeless people who might need a bit of help and are more than likely hungry. I walked a route where I have always seen many rough sleepers, I went from Charring Cross, to Leicester Square, through China Town, along Shaftesbury Avenue, back to Piccadilly Circus and then back along the other side of Shaftesbury Avenue to my bus stop. When I said to people I dont have any change, but I do have spare sandwiches, I was told the following by the people I tried to do something nice for... 'Do I look like I want a sandwich love' 'Id rather just have the money' 'Aint you got any cigarettes' 'F**k off' 'Bring something f**king useful next time' 'Does my sign say I need a sandwich' 'How is food going to help me' & 'Cant you read, I need money, not bread' I also got called a Slag & a Bitch.
One person took a sandwich & told me I 'could have selected better flavours' (I wanted to get as many as I could for my money so brought a selection of cheese, ham, ham & cheese, cheese & onion, chicken mayo, and chicken & sweetcorn) One person took a sandwich & threw it down next to him. Only one person said to me 'Thank You sweetheart, I hope you have a lovely evening'
I realise maybe I just walked past the wrong people and that this probably (hopefully) doesnt represent the majority of Rough Sleepers & Homeless people in London, but I dont understand how people who seemingly have nothing can not only turn down a kind gesture, but also be so rude and hurtful to the person who is trying to be nice to them out of all the people who just walk past them as if they arent there.
Needless to say, I started out feeling like I was going to be doing a nice thing, but ended up feeling stupid & got on my bus back to Victoria feeling quite sad, and am still carrying a bag containing 7 sandwiches. Maybe one day Ill try again.
