I've just been to an exhibition of photographs by my friend Gaby. It was in a beautiful gallery with white washed walls just off Brick Lane, and the whole thing, which was sponsored by Olympus, felt incredibly swanky. There were fancy hors d'oeuvres, glasses of champagne and a slightly eccentric display of parkour.
The pictures themselves were of inspiring Icelandic women; leading figures from the arts and science living in a country which I'm sure intrigues most of us. The portraits themselves were stunning, but the tantalising views of the landscape in the background behind were something else.
Gabs is a wonderful photographer and I'm thrilled things seem to be going so well for her.
