The Photographers' Gallery was the first independent gallery in Britain to be solely devoted to photography. It hosts multiple temporary exhibitions, which focus on high-quality international contemporary photography. A visit here is always full of surprises, as no two exhibitions are alike. There's also an excellent bookshop, which stocks over 5000 titles and runs a worldwide mail order service. There is no admission fee, however some exhibitions may be charged.
There is something about photography that has fascinated people since its inception. Exhibiting some incredible shots, Atlas will enthrall anyone who appreciates the serene beauty of still images. The gallery's immense catalog includes artists from around the world, and spans works from the beginnings of photography as an art form, all the way up to limited edition prints from contemporary artists. Check out their online gallery to take a peek at their wonderful collection.
One of the few galleries to dedicate itself solely to photography, the Michael Hoppen Gallery which opened in 1993 is an absolute must-visit for amateur and professional photographers. Aspirants will love this intimate space that has made its mark on the international scene too. Each photograph is aesthetically mounted onto carefully crafted frames that call for as much attention as the works they hold. Check the website for more information.
