The recognition of UK-based black photographers is long overdue. The launch of the Roots to Reckoning photographic exhibition exposes a body of works which well deserves its currently received attention. Featuring the works of three black pioneering photographers, Armet Francis, Charlie Phillips and Neil Kenlock, the exhibition captures the changing face of London's black communities from the 1960's to the present day.
The ground-breaking works of these three photographers are an inspiration to a new generation of photographers and videographers striving to translate the cultural idiosyncrasies of their communities through the eye of a lens.
The exhibition covers diverse observations, from Black Panther demonstrations to Bob Marley's visits to Britain. It explores everyday scenes of life in London, from the streets of Brixton to the pubs of Notting Hill.
