Blood, Sweat and Tides is the forthcoming exhibition of Ray Wise's photos of London from the foreshore of the Thames. One of our long-term Flickr friends, Ray's been shooting along the river for a number of years, seeking new and magical perspectives of the city from the riverbed at low tide.

The name of the show reflects the graft that's gone into making this happen - seeking the optimal spots along the river, being at the mercy of the weather, trying to get the best possible  shots while the tides allow and then finding places to exhibit the results. But he's done it and now you can admire this gorgeous collection of serene images at the following bars this summer:

15 June - 16 July at The Crabtree, Rainville Road, Hammersmith, W6 9HA

28 July - 30 August at The Mad Hatter, 37 Southwark Street, SE1 9NY

1- 27 September at The Greenwich Tavern, 1 King William Walk, Greenwich SE10 9JH

Great job Ray. I had hoped to visit but my house move means I will miss it. Best of luck, am sure it will be a success!

Don't go looking for The Mad Hatter on Southwark St. Correct address - from the hotel's website - is actually 3-7 Stamford Street. Given postcode is correct, but that's bugger all help if you're on foot and think you know to which street you're going!
