Fight for Sight Photo Exhibition
Celebrates Vibrant, Beautiful Views of London
Fight for Sight, the UK’s leading eye research charity, will host a free public photography exhibition titled “My View of London” from 1 July - 31 July, 2010 in the lobby of Park Plaza Westminster Bridge London.
The free exhibition, comprised of photographs submitted to the recent My View of London photography competition, features the best images entered in the categories of People, Places and Escapes. Each image was photographed in or around the capital and was one of nearly 1,500 entries submitted as part of a campaign to raise awareness of the charity and its important work in the field of eye research.
Numerous celebrities supported the competition with photos of their favourite views of London. Among them are actress Joan Collins, gallery owner Tamara Beckwith, TV presenter Jasmine Harman and WBA Heavyweight Champion David Haye.

In the UK, an estimated 100 people begin to lose their sight every day. By encouraging people to take a moment to appreciate the spectacular views London has to offer, Fight for Sight is hoping the photo competition and exhibition will bring home the importance of our sight.
Annu Mayor, Fight for Sight Director of Communications, said: “Living with sight loss is a reality for too many people. ‘My View of London’ has provided an excellent opportunity to raise awareness of the importance of research in preventing and treating blindness and eye disease while celebrating the vibrant, beautiful views of London.”
Park Plaza Westminster Bridge London is located at the foot of Westminster Bridge, 200 Westminster Bridge Road, SE1 7UT. For details about the exhibition please see www.myviewoflondon.org.uk
