If you find yourself in Soho, near Dean Street, slip into the French House. Photographer Orlando Gili (who's taken a few snaps for us) is exhibiting his photos of "The Day It Snowed" (that day being in February 2009). He describes how "everyone who set foot in the city walked into a scene from a Bruegel painting. Transportation was brought to a standstill, and with it, all indications of time." Indeed, a shot of the French House itself could have been taken anytime since black and white photography began. These images capture the magic of snowy London beautifully and if you happened to be out sledging on Primrose Hill that day, it might be that you're starring in the big picture halfway up the stairs. The pictures are hung in the downstairs bar and the upstairs dining room, amongst the usual pictures of the famous patrons of the bar, until February 28th.
Missing The Snow Already?
