Voting has opened for ICE members to decide which images from the River People Photography Exhibition will go on permanent display at One Great George Street.

The River People Exhibition, by Wandsworth Photographer Matthew Joseph, explores the importance of the River Thames to London’s everyday life.

The exhibition contains two collections of photos: River People, which looks at the people of the river, those connected to it, those who work on it and those who make the most of it for its recreational benefits, and the Super Highway collection, a series of timelapse photos capturing the hustle and bustle of life on the river.

Members are invited to select their favourite photo from each collection via the virtual exhibition space online. The images with the most votes will go on permanent display in One Great George Street, taking their place amongst the vast range of civil engineering artwork in the historic building.

The Exhibition has been delivered in partnership with Knowledge Partner Tideway, the organisation behind the Thames Tideway Tunnel. The Tideway Tunnel is a 25 kilometre sewer tunnel needed to prevent an average 20 million tonnes each year of untreated sewage discharging into the tidal River Thames in London.

Having received a large amount of media coverage, including in the Evening Standard and ITV News, it has been decided to extend the Exhibition by an extra week to 10th June due to popular demand. You can attend the Exhibition from 10am to 6pm Monday to Friday, free of charge and with no booking required.
