Duracell Rechargeables: “How do you recharge your batteries?”
Now showing 29th September – 25th October 2008
This summer, to celebrate the re-launch of its rechargeable range Duracell teamed up with The Independent to launch a nationwide photography competition, challenging the public to interpret the theme “How do you recharge your batteries” in a unique and diverse way. A panel of highly respected photographers, including renowned international fashion and portrait photographer Huggy Ragnarsson, selected the top 50 images from an extraordinary 900 entries. The result is an exhibition of breathtaking, original and creative entries illustrating how the UK like to recharge their batteries.
From the classic cup of tea, picturesque village and magnificent landscape to the more unconventional extreme sports and abstract hobbies, the exhibition is a fantastic opportunity to explore how the British public have responded to the competition.
“We are absolutely thrilled to be able to showcase the great talent emerging throughout the country”, says Huggy. “The brief was fabulously wide and fun, and has therefore inspired some really imaginative, high quality entries. The competition has had an astonishing response and it’s amazing to see how the UK likes to recharge its batteries!”
Louise Garczewska, Director of Getty Images Gallery, continues, “This exhibition is a true testament to the diversity of modern British society. The judges had an extremely difficult time whittling down the top 50 photographs from the staggering 900 entries, which has resulted in a fantastic, professional standard exhibition”
This is an ideal show for all of you bustling city-goers out there - a step-by-step guide showing you how to relax, refresh and recharge!
