An intriguing photo exhibition will take place in London and will present a photobook comprising photographs from all countries worldwide. The exhibition is part of the East London Photography Festival ‘PhotoMonths’ and will be open for visitors and tourists from October 15 to 18, at the Old Truman Brewery, in London.

Exhibition organizers said that over 28,000 photo entries were sent in, out of which only 600 were selected and will be presented in the photobook. Photo were taken by random people across the globe and captured real individuals in real situations with different types of cultural background.

Organizers of the exhibition said that many people, from ‘pros, students, mums, dads and granddads have joined in to capture real people, mesmerizing cultures, iconic landscapes and exotic wildlife from every one of the 193 countries that make up our world.’

Each one of the 600 shortlisted photos that will be exhibited will also have a story presenting what the picture is about. The event also represents an attempt to a new world record, by creating a 20 feet by 13.8 feet photobook.

The exhibition can be visited for free from October 15 to October 15, from 11:00am BST to 18:00pm, at the Old Truman Brewery, in London.
