December 12th sees the launch of ‘Iconic London 2012‘ at the Truman Brewery on Brick Lane.
Taking place until 16 December, this exhibition showcases the work of some of the best London-based mobile photographers, with their images previously having appeared on Instagram, the 100+ million strong social network.
Hosted by local Instagram community Instagramers London (http://instagramerslondon.com/), the exhibition will feature the work of thirty influential ‘IGers’, who will each be presenting their own unique vision of London throughout 2012.
The exhibition will also feature images from the winners and finalists of Instagramers London’s year-long Iconic London image challenge, with all finalist images available for sale in aid of the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity.
Iconic London 2012 is the second exhibition hosted by Instagramers London; the first was ‘My World Shared’ (http://myworldshared.com/) in October 2011, which received high acclaim as the first of its kind in Europe.
This second event aims to be bigger and better, and takes a retrospective look at life in London during 2012, a key year in the history of our capital city.
Some of the worldwide Instagram community’s most influential users will be on hand to share some of their mobile photography expertise, including Phil Gonzalez (creator of the Instagramers.com network of worldwide Instagram community groups), Yvonne Bouman (one of the organisers of Instagramers Holland) and Thomas Kakareko (an influential mobile street photographer from Berlin).

- More about Instagramers London
Our community group was brought together on 24 March 2011 at the first worldwide Instameet set up by the, then, new app called Instagram.
Since then over 300 community groups across the world have been formed under the umbrella of the independent Instagramers network.
The group meets on a regular basis, allowing Londoners (and visitors) with a mobile device the opportunity to meet like-minded devotees of the app and share their love of mobile photography.
