Work of lesbian and gay artists showcased at Pride In The House exhibition at Lauderdale
Lauderdale House in Highgate hosted its annual Pride in the House art exhibition showcasing some of the best work from the lesbian and gay community.
Artists from all backgrounds were invited to submit photographs of their work before a panel of judges selected three artists to exhibit at the historic house in Waterlow Park.
This year the winners were Stratford artist Frixos Papantoniou, Tim Knight from Yorkshire and Melanie Menard from Brighton.
The overall winner, who will have her own exhibition at Lauderdale House later in the year, was announced as photographer and video artist Ms Menard at a private view last Tuesday evening.
Her atmospheric and haunting photographs of former asylums in Ireland impressed the judges.
