STAGING New exhibition for People of the Thames - British Rowing

New exhibition for People of the Thames


International photographer Jil Orpen uses pictures, sounds, and words to illustrate the impact of the River Thames on the people who live and work around it.

Described as ‘a unique tribute to 21st Century people who work on, live near, or have some connection with the special environment of the River Thames’, the People of the Thames exhibition will take place at the Milton Gallery, St. Paul’s School, London between Thursday 26 January and Friday 10 February (9am-5pm, weekdays).


GB Rowing Team world champions Katherine Grainger and Tom Aggar are amongst the rowing personalities on display, as well as past and present rowers from St. Paul’s School.

People of the Thames has been on display in museums along the river for the past four years, but this is the first time that people from the Tidal Thames have been represented.
