  An exhibition of stunning shots of East London by a group of Cafe Art MyLondon photographers who have experienced homelessness is due to open in Qbic hotel next week. Qbic Hotel partnered with Cafe Art and The Royal Photographic Society (The RPS) to take photos of East London. Paul Ryan from Cafe Art says Rebecca Waters from Qbic approached Cafe Art wanting to give them a new challenge - to take photos of interesting parts of east London near Qbic. "They wanted to add a more personal and interesting piece of work created by local artists of the area. Rebecca said they thought of our MyLondon photography project. After a meeting we decided to give the challenge to the photography mentoring group. It was a perfect challenge - it was a real job for them. Our goal is to empower people and this has more than achieved that goal." Neil Cordell from The RPS says that the Society has been helping the MyLondon calendar project for several years and this type of extra project was perfect to improve their photography skills. The 14 East London photos will be hanging in Qbic Hotel cafe from Monday 2 October. The annual MyLondon exhibition will be also hanging in the hotel on their gallery staircase from that date. Join us for the Private View in Qbic, 42 Adler Street, London, E1 1EE at 6pm on Monday 2 October
