P1330334As you all know, the maritime world, that is basically Shipping is more than interwoven with the world of arts, any sort of arts:  be it paintings, sculptures, jewellery, photographs the lot! You need commissioning just over one thousand original paintings for a 2, 000 passenger cruise ship for its 1, 000 plus rooms/apartments; just one and the 1, 000 lot are on board. Big business too but also support to the arts world, the artists, hence you can find in this site over 250 articles on arts, paintings and photography you name it! Thing of the above as a message and pass it on…

Yesterday as I was leaving Lloyd’s Register Head Quarters in the City following the Lloyd’s Register on Ship Efficiency Solutions – A Cost Effective Approach seminar,  I visited the Gallery@LR, a very well thought initiative by its CEO Richard Sadler, which intrigued me the moment I saw the poster in the LR’s building main entrance off the pavement of 71 Fenchurch Street;  Lloyd’s Register is hosting a series of special exhibitions by selected artists and groups in its Richard Rogers building in this exciting new space Gallery@LR!P1330335

The current exhibition SKY.LINES by Christopher Hauser was beyond imagination, photographs of high quality, theme 9all being well known ports or river-side photographs of major cities, capitals of world shipping in their own right: Hong Kong, London, Singapore, San Francisco, Sydney, and Tokyo… all magnificent shipping capitals!

Christopher Hauser’s work in this particular exhibitions of super photos (I can judge as I have been, amongst other things, studying photography from the age of 12 at the Anargyrios and Corgiallenios College of Spetses) and these pictures focus on the beautiful, dramatic and complex scenery of skylines found around the world.P1330333

I guess this short of thing should – exhibitions, must take place around the world not only from Class Societies, as there are many involved in this charitable and supportive idea, but from many others in our industry to support both ways arts, artists and business of all kinds…

The exhibition opened on the 29th of May and ends on Friday the 3rd of July 2014 Monday to Friday 10:00 to 16:00 free of charge. Find out more on
