London will be featured in an open-air photographic exhibition this month. Faith in the City of London, which showcases the work of photographer Niki Gorick, will be presented in Paternoster Square until the 28th of October, before transferring to Aldgate Square for its 29th of October to 26th November run.
The free exhibition will feature images from weddings, communions, evangelical bible studies, Livery company carol services, Muslim worship, and Afghan music to reveal the Square Mile’s vibrant and diverse spiritual life that stretches out into many faiths. The exhibition complements Niki Gorick’s book, also entitled Faith in the City of London, which was published by Unicorn earlier this year.
