"The OM-1 was the first model in the OM SLR Series. It earned wide acclaim as the world's smallest and lightest 35mm single-lens reflex camera at the time of its launch in 1973. The OM-1’s many ground breaking features included an incredibly high magnification viewfinder (0.9x) that used a special prism condenser design, a mirror mechanism with air dampers to reduce shock, and a shutter speed ring integrated with the lens mount."

80 AT 80 – A COLLECTION OF PORTRAITS TAKEN AT THE MANDARIN ORIENTAL

by John Nassari

May 3 – May 7

To mark the 80th anniversary of OLYMPUS cameras, OLYMPUS UK and Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, London are proud to present a major exhibition of new photographs by OLYMPUS Visionary John Nassari. A collection of images were commissioned by Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, London to give a glimpse inside one of London’s most celebrated 5-star hotels, narrated by the portraits of the colleagues who deliver the hotel’s legendary service. 80 at 80, a collection of 80 portraits, celebrates the 80th anniversary of OLYMPUS Cameras.

Nassari was given unprecedented access to all areas of the hotel over a period of several months in 2015. This allowed him to experience the essence of the hotel and its workings. Remaining unobtrusive whilst the hotel was operational was challenging, although using the OLYMPUS OM-D E-M5 Mark II allowed him to quietly observe and capture the staff as they went about their very diverse, busy duties.

The exhibition will be available for public viewing from 2nd till the 7th May 2016 at OLYMPUS’ Art Bermondsey Project Space.
