Part of London Pride 2013, Beyond Words is an exclusive photographic competition and two exhibitions presenting the wide-ranging talent of members of the Gay Photographers Network, with the exhibitions hosted in the Gallery and the Café at Foyles flagship store in the heart of Soho's gay community.
The 2013 Pride celebrations are set to be the biggest and the best to date and the Gay Photographers Network and Foyles have joined forces to devise Beyond Words, an exclusive competition and two unique exhibitions highlighting the spectrum of talent to be found within the gay photographic community. Members of the GPN are invited to submit images interpreting a range of themes, from Literary London to Love (and Marriage), and shortlisted entries will be hosted in a free exhibition in the Gallery at Foyles' Charing Cross Road store. An additional exhibition in the Café at Foyles will present a range of pieces taken from the GPN's wider collection, illustrating the breadth of talent within the network.
