Dench does Dallas
50 decisive moments
Olympus commissioned Peter Dench to photograph the American city of Dallas using the OM-D E-M5 Mark II. Dench normally uses a full-frame DSLR so using a different camera in a new setting was a potential challenge for him. “The lightweight camera and accessories saved me energy in sweltering conditions and its performance gave me the confidence to discard the flash in many low-light situations,” comments Dench. “I was really excited to point the camera at people, and it was great to
see that people wanted the camera pointed at them. “It mademe a better photographer. I was inspired to explore more intensely; I paid greater attention to the movement of light and tightened upmy compositions.” This exhibition opens on 29 October at the Bermondsey Project Space and runs until 7 November. Entry is free and it’s open 11am to 6pm Monday to Friday and 11am to 4pmon Saturday.
