At La Galeria


To PR Newswire’s ‘Meet the Media’ event in SW1 last night. Guest speaker was Matthew Bishop of The Economist who, in between plugging his just-published book, offered some useful insight into the workings of this excellent publication. Hospitality was generous and following the Q&A session we were all invited to cross from one side of Royal Opera Arcade to the other where the photographer John Stoddart’s work was showcased in La Galleria.

On the street level of the gallery we played “if you could hang one of those at home which would you choose?” As I wasn’t wearing my specs I was somewhat chastened to be told rather sharply that I’d selected a photograph of Andrew Neil!

Downstairs we didn’t play any games at all – unlike the subjects in the photographs who were clearly enjoying themselves rather obviously without any clothes. Erotica? Or porn? You can check out some of the less raunchy images at
