    This year will be an exciting one for the gallery… We are thrilled to announce that we will be taking a new exhibition space which will open in the autumn. This will not be conceived as a traditional gallery like the space we had at Jubilee Place, but will instead be a more intimate environment that will see photography in conversation with other media and arts. We see this as an opportunity to present a much more eclectic array of artworks and objects, such as drawings, textiles, sculpture and prints alongside photographs. 

    At the end of March we will exhibit at AIPAD in New York. We will include vintage prints by Danish photographer Krass Clement, whom we recently started representing and whose work will be shown in America for the first time. The images and stories that accompany his work are extraordinary in so many ways. 

    Our commitment to Japan continues and we will be revealing some incredible, previously unseen prints at the fair, as well rare vintage works by Lartigue, Blumenfeld and Cartier-Bresson. There will also be newly released editions by Tim Walker and Sarah Moon. We are also excited to present our new rising star – Monsieur Roussel whose unique prints from the 1940/50’s are sure to cause a stir upon their first showing in New York. 

    I am very excited by the appointment of Shoair Mavlian as the new Director of The Photographers’ Gallery and wish to congratulate her on new role. We have known Shoair since she joined Tate Modern in 2008 and worked alongside Simon Baker, and we then continued to follow her work during her five year tenure as the Director of Photoworks in Brighton. We are sure there will be some fascinating changes to The Photographers' Gallery program.

    I very much look forward to seeing you in the coming months.

  • Summer Newsletter 2022

    It has been a very busy few months of fair activity for us with our first AIPAD in New York for two years and more recently, Masterpiece in London. At both fairs, it was wonderful to re-engage person to person again. The photography community is a strong and international group of dedicated dealers, curators, writers and of course, wonderful, and talented practitioners from all over the world. We are collectively focused on preserving the history and legacy of our medium and together we are helping to steer photography through these strange and challenging times.

    AIPAD gave us the opportunity to once again meet with American museum curators, many of whom had not been able to travel to Europe in the past two years. They delighted in the work of Sîan Davey, and also in poignant new photographs by Lucas Foglia. The rare and exceptional works by Japanese post-war masters Masahisa Fukase and Eikoh Hosoe that we took to the fair were placed in the collections of important American institutions.

    Siân Davey’s work is now part of the V&A's permanent collection thanks to the incredible generosity of the acquisition committee, and we are delighted that Siân is continuing her Garden project this summer. We anticipate new, wondrous images from her and look forward to sharing them with you. Eamonn Doyle has a new body of work and book to accompany it. As you know, Eamonn is a consummate photographer and publisher, and this book is beautifully designed and conceived and I am sure you will agree – his continued success is well deserved. There are only 300 copies so don’t delay and order your copy!

    Our wonderful artist, Ishiuchi Miyako will open a large exhibition at the Stills Gallery as part of the Edinburgh Festival in August and we would urge you to visit her show if possible. Details are enclosed below.

    Whilst photographs travel on the web very comfortably and can so easily be viewed on your screens, there is still nothing like the haptic experience of the actual photograph, in all its glory and scale. We look forward to continuing to curate these physical presentations for you, with Frieze Masters in October and then Paris again in November, our 26th Paris Photo!

    We are always available at our Pall Mall Deposit location by appointment and do hope that you will find the time to visit us. Our planned re-opening of an exhibition space is still in the offing, and we will be in touch with you once all is confirmed.

  • John Davies at Weston Park Museum, Sheffield

    The Sheffield Project: Photographs of a Changing City January 12, 2021

    During the 1980s, Sheffield’s Untitled Gallery, now Site Gallery, commissioned a series of photographers to document the city at a pivotal moment in its history. It was a time of great upheaval, which saw the aftermath of the Miners’ Strike, the steel industry’s workforce decimated, mass unemployment and dereliction. But it was also a time in which the city began to imagine its future, one that would include the Meadowhall retail development, the transformation of the lower Don Valley, and the World Student Games.


    The Sheffield Project will show how these socially-engaged photographers, including John Davies, John Kippin, Anna Fox and more, reflected on this monumental period of change for the city and its people.
