Healthy Child Editor Dr Ranj Singh Opens Take A Moment Exhibition

Healthy Child celebrity guest editor Dr Ranj Singh has officially opened Art of London Presents Take A Moment 2022, a new photography exhibition and collaboration with photographer and artist Ray Burmiston in Piccadilly Circus.

The NHS doctor and TV presenter, whose portrait features in the exhibition, wants to communicate the positive mental benefits of pausing for a moment. Over a hundred celebrities including David Walliams, Stephen Fry, Alesha Dixon, Amanda Holden, Kate Moss, Richard Ayoade, Helena Bonham Carter, Ricky Gervais, Grayson Perry, Mel B, James Corden, and many others from the worlds of entertainment and sport have taken part.


The exhibition is now live on Europe’s largest advertising display, the Piccadilly Lights, and in a physical gallery directly underneath the famous advertising boards, supported by Westminster City Council. The free photography exhibition, which reminds people to take a moment to look after their mental health, will run until early April. Landsec, which owns the Piccadilly Lights, donated the screen time for free in support of the campaign.

‘Art of London Presents Take A Moment 2022’ also encourages the public to take a selfie photo and share their own moment of reflection on Instagram in March. The exhibition ends in early April with a ten-minute video featuring hundreds of celebrity and public portraits, curated by Ray Burmiston.

Ray Burmiston himself will run two photography sessions in a pop-up photography studio underneath the Piccadilly Lights. He also photographed the cast of Magic Mike Live (Jake Brewer, Charlie Knight, Mark Lace, Brian Siregar; The Hippodrome), Thomas Aldridge (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child; Palace Theatre), Aisha Jawando (Tina: The Tina Turner Musical; Aldwych Theatre), Karl Queensborough (Hamilton; Victoria Palace Theatre), and Zizi Strallen (Mary Poppins; Prince Edward Theatre).


The Art of London Presents Take A Moment 2022 exhibition follows other events in the area including the Augmented Gallery, several Pop-Up Art Exhibitions, and the Piccadilly Art Takeover and Trail, and there are plenty more to come later in 2022.

Dr Ranj Singh said: “I’m delighted to launch and feature in Art of London and Ray Burmiston’s stunning photography exhibition, which will help remind everyone to take a moment each day to look after their mental health. This powerful photography project is an important reminder to pause and address our feelings and mental health – go see it and don’t forget to take a selfie for Instagram!”

Ray Burmiston, Take A Moment artist and photographer, said “Over the years I’ve been fortunate to work with some incredibly talented people who have not only allowed me to capture their ‘moment’ but also to share it part of this exhibition. It fills me with immense pride, that the idea of everyone taking a moment together, has become a reality on Piccadilly Lights, the biggest stage London has to offer.”
