Summer is officially over, kids are back to school, nights are drawing in, Christmas is approaching. Some people love the onset of winter, with cosy nights in front of the fire or long walks in the autumn-coloured forests, followed by a hearty roast in a country pub.
Personally, autumn makes me really melancholic - I try to book adventures and activities so I have plans to look forward to, and photography exhibitions give me creative inspiration once the sun has deserted us.
If you're like me and need some inspiration, here’s our list of London Photography Exhibitions showing this autumn. Maybe we’ll see you there!
