Finchampstead photographer Gina Soden's first exhibition at London's Groucho ClubBy Luke Matthews

Just a few months after making her mark in London, Finchampstead photographer Gina Soden is about to stage her first solo exhibition.
The 26-year-old’s debut collection, which focuses on abandoned and derelict structures, will be on display at The Groucho Club in Soho during a pop-up exhibition curated by Rob and Nick Carter.
The Groucho Club, a private members’ club, is renowned for its young, trendy vibe with patrons including Sienna Miller, Lily Allen and Liam Gallagher.
After embarking on a career in professional photography five years ago, Gina is excited by the prospect of her first headline exhibition, Retrogression.
“It has taken a lot of planning and I am thankful to Rob and Nick Carter for curating the show, and to The Groucho Club for hosting my first solo exhibition,” says Gina.
“I hope it will be a success and I am looking forward to sharing the stories behind the artwork.”
Some of Gina’s work has been hanging on the walls of the club since she met its curator earlier this year, but it will be the first time she exhibits a complete collection at the venue.
The work is based around abandoned buildings and Gina travelled across Europe to capture sites of beauty, nostalgia and decay.
Retrogression opens on Tuesday, November 6, and runs until Tuesday, November 13. For more Gina’s work visit www.ginasoden.co.uk.
