We spin around the nights 13
Meditation on an Ending is a haunting exhibition of photographs of pubs at closing time is on in Bermondsey until 5 October.

There’s a fascinating interview with the photographer, Chilean artist Nicolas Sanchez, on our sister site Kentishtowner today in which the London-dwelling Chilean artist describes pubs as being “like ships in the night. A mid-distance front take, showing the shadowy exterior, empty streets, abandoned bikes, useless phone cabins, mailboxes, everything lit by a few lamps. And then the bright interior that invites us to look in on what’s happening inside. A bunch of people hanging onto the remnants of that damned hour when pubs are almost closing.”
