I love it when we get the chance to marvel at our friends' creativity. We've got a lot of really talented friends - DJs, actors, musicians, chefs, artists and photographers, so when we get an invite to see their work we're there like a shot. Last night it was Chelone's photography exhibition - The View - that we went to, which is on all weekend at one of the coolest spaces I've come across in London, House of Vans, near Waterloo.

House of Vans is a huge space run by the Vans brand. As they say on their website, they're "always embracing and fuelling creative expression through art, music, skateboarding, BMX, street culture and fashion; the space offers a solid platform for the local communities to experience and engage with Vans’ ‘Off The Wall’ spirit. With creative expression at the forefront; The House of Vans London is showcasing an art gallery, a VansLab artist incubator space, cinema, live music venue, premium cafĂ© and bars, gifting suite and skater built and designed concrete bowl, mini ramp and street course". It really is the most incredible space and one you should definitely check out. They're open until 10pm this evening, then from 10am - 10pm tomorrow (Saturday) and 12pm - 6pm on Sunday.


Chelone was exhibiting photographs he's taken of musicians and people - portraits that completely capture the mood of the subject, creating images that you can't tear your eyes away from. Primarily shot in black and white his images have so much depth to them. I don't think I can really say it better than the man himself, who says he takes photographs to provide "lasting, emotional memories in our increasingly disposable world".

Most of the photographs in the exhibition are available for purchase - contact Chelone direct for further details, or if you're interested in booking him as a photographer.
