The Marlene Neumann Centre for Photography and Light is possibly one of the most calming things to do in East London. The beautiful garden is set under the a giant wild fig tree. The garden is currently in full bloom and is under guardianship of Tigger the cat who keeps a watchful eye on the comings and goings around the centre.
The centre features two galleries displaying Marlene’s prolific career in photography. Her Dark Room gallery displays her images that have been developed in the dark room using ‘The Neumann Technique’ which she has developed and perfected in her 30 years of capturing photographs. The Light Room displays Marlene’s Black and White photography, which she is currently producing photographs for. Focusing on landscapes and nature, these images manage to draw people in and ground them in the present.
The centre is the site of many holisitic events on the East London calendar. Iyengar Yoga classes are held in the gallery every Monday and Thursday. The centre becomes a concert venue every once in a while for International acts such as Desert Rose. Marlene herself hosts a Creativity through Photography course twice a year, which welcomes students from across the country to learn how to capture photographs with meaning. The garden is opened up once a year for the Pam Goulding Gardens of East London event once a year.
For more information on any of the events at the centre, please contact Claire, the centre manager at 043 726 1877. The centre can be found at 8 Kent Road, Vincent.
Please remember to rate the centre! The higher ranking it receives, the more people can know about the gallery and the beautiful garden.
Marlene hosted her 86th Weekend Workshop on Creative Photography last weekend and it was overwhelmingly successful. Everyone who attended felt more aware of their surroundings and awake by the end of the weekend. All except Tigger, the center guardian! The course is aimed at anyone who needs a shift in the way they think and feel about photography and about their lives. Contact Marlene directly for more information about upcoming courses.
