Finding the wait for your results too tedious. Why not visit one of the following to take your mind off things!

Photographers Gallery: Edward Burtynksy & Raqs Media Collective

After a multimillion pound make over, the Photographers Gallery has opened it doors again. The inaugural exhibition is by Edward Burtynsky, one of Canada’s most respected photographers. This exhibition shows three sections from Burtynsky’s series OIL: Extraction and Refinement, Transportation and Motor Culture and The End of Oil. The works depict landscapes scarred by the extraction of oil, and the cities and suburban sprawl defined by its use. He also eloquently addresses the coming end of oil, as we face its rising cost and dwindling availability.

Raqs Media Collective are three Delhi-based artists – Jeebesh Bagchi, Monica Narula and Shuddhabrata Sengupta – whose practice includes photography, new media, film, media theory and curation.This exhibition features two works. An Afternoon Unregistered on the Richter Scale (2011) is a silent looped video projection that transforms an archival photograph taken in Calcutta in 1911 through a series of subtle alterations.

Peter Fraser: City in Mind (25th May) – Brancolini Grimaldi Gallery

Brancolini Grimaldi announces a new exhibition by photographer Peter Fraser. Peter Fraser has created a portrait of London unlike any other. Inspired by Italo Calvino’s novel Invisible Cities in which the explorer Marco Polo tells the Emperor Kublai Khan of the many fantastical cities he has visited on his travels, Fraser has spent the past five years photographing his current home, London, with the aim of creating an imagined “city in the mind”. In a series of intimate and enigmatic images, Fraser reveals a poetic vision of London which appears to bear little if any relation to the city as we know it.
