It's Not Curry

We've got a plethora of creative people living in SW6 - Fulhamites do fashion, food, art and design and photography and they do it well.

Combining two of my favourite art forms, food and photography, is SW6 local Kathryn Louise Geels of Ghel Creative (@girlondon) who is exhibiting a collection of her images from Karnataka, Punjab and Haryana, India aimed at debunking Western stereotypes of Indian food and culture.

Kathryn was inspired by her work as a photographer and extensive travels through India, finding that the diversity of culture, language, religion, environment and way of life was each day more apparent. Through her images she hopes to present "a unique perspective, not synonymous with most Western people's idea, of India and Indian food". Focusing on a nation with a zest for life, an abundance of colour and vigour and "an unrivalled fondness and appreciated for food, feasts and celebrations - from preparation, to serving and offering and of course its consumption."

If that's got your taste and culture buds going already, you can see "It's Not Curry" at Reynolds, 53 Charlotte St, Fitzrovia, London W1T 4PA from 10th October to 9th December.
