As reported in our preview, Wednesday, August 12 saw the opening of VICE Magazine’s Photo Exhibition, a traveling show organized in association with G-Shock on occasion of the 2009 VICE Photo Issue, at Printspace in London.  The inaugural event was well attended by English art fans that were able to see fantastic photographs up close from some of the best contemporary photographers in America, including Terry Richardson, Ryan McGinley, and Richard Kern.  Londoners have two weeks until the show travels to Spain, so be sure to check it out before it disappears!
