We love our Flickr friends, we really do. Where would we be without our obliging and outrageously talented photographer friends happy to share their work with us in the Londonist Flickr pool and be sent off on snap happy adventures once in a while? How marvellous then to see one of ours making good. Chutney Bannister's been a Londonist stalwart for some time and was one of our earliest Londonist Behind The Lens-ers. He's since had more shows and been splashed all over Time Out, even being commissioned to photo-witness the shambles of the Booze Tube party the other week.
This week though, you can own your own bit of Chutney if you hotfoot it along to trendy uber-salon Flaxon Ptootch in Kentish Town on Thursday night where he's participating in a group show, tellingly entitled the Affordable Art Sale. Facebook page here. This is a party with a purpose which isn't just hedonistic. You may well get very drunk, dance to DJs and leave with an outlandish haircut but if you remember to wave an affordable wad of cash about you could leave with a groovy piece of artwork to hang in your tiny flat. Be sure to pay your respects to the Prince of Kentish Town while you're there, though. Or else.
Performance, chat, a bit of this and a bit of that all kicks off around 8pm at Flaxon Ptootch, 237 Kentish Town Road. And if that wasn't enough, Chutney - sorry, Yusuf Ozkizil - also has an exhibition of his Underground photos at the Sun and Doves, Coldharbour Lane, Camberwell SE5 until 2 July. Get him now, while you can still afford him.
