EYES ON THE TOUR DE FRANCE PHOTOGRAPHIC EXHIBITION SOUTH BANK
THE Graham Watson photographic exhibition – Eyes On The Tour de France – is showing at the County Hall Gallery on London’s South Bank until Monday, July 9.
The show, which celebrates the Grand Depart of the Tour from London this weekend, features over 200 of Watson’s photos from the Tour taken over the past three decades.
They depict the Tour in all its grandeur, crossing the plains of France, scaling the Alps and Pyrenees, the spectators who turn out to watch and of course the men themselves in close-up, in both their lighter moments and in purgatory.
Riders such as three times winner Greg LeMond, five times winner Bernard Hinault, Sean Kelly, former World number one and Tour points champion, Miguel Indurain the first to win five straight Tours, Pedro Delgado, Laurent Jalabert and yellow jersey holder Phil Anderson, and of course, the Tour champion himself, Lance Armstrong, winner of a record seven Tours.
The Eyes on the Tour de France occupies the entire White Space Gallery in County Hall Gallery, Riversides Building, County Hall, Southbank, London SE1 7PB.
Opening times: 10.00 – 18.30.
