BARBICAN with Foss

Another lovely day in London makes way for a nice outing to expand our horizons. The ‘Constructing Worlds: Photography and Architecture in the Modern Age’ at the Barbican Art Center was a stellar exhibition that particularly moved me as it depicts in myriad ways how humans relate to their surrounding concrete environment. The works that stunned me were those by the South African photographer,Guy Tilim, with his Avenue Patrice Lumumba collection that portrays how the state of the buildings in various newly independent African Nations ultimately reflects human’s inner and outer turmoil such as corruption, war, poverty.. The tickets are 8 quid if you’re a student and it’s well worth it! Here is more info on this exhibit:

I went with my friend Sarah, had some nice authentic scones, and finished the afternoon with a nice chillin’ session.
