In the gallery

I took a trip to the Photographer’s gallery with Alex. It was the first time I had been there since the gallery found its new home on Ramillies Street. It’s a great spot; very quiet, understated, yet just yards from the frenzied consumerism of Oxford Circus. A “behind the scenes” glimpse, if you like. I used to visit the gallery often when it was in Great Newport Street. It was a bit of a sanctuary for me when I was studying. I always enjoyed the cafe, and the bookshop, and I’m pleased to say that these are still there, and much improved. I could spend hours, literally, browsing in that bookshop, but Alex had to drag me away eventually! Five floors dedicated to photography was also a real treat.

There is an excellent exhibition: Perspectives on collage currently on. Collage is something I have been thinking about a lot recently, so it was very inspiring, and gave me much to think about.

I would thoroughly recommend a visit. It really is a fantastic space (and of course I took some pictures).

    • It got spilt, and of course I took a picture of it, rather than help to clear it up! Not mine though, it was Alex’s 🙂

  1. Nice shots, and a good recommendation when I’m fortunate enough to get that way again. I especially like the handrail shots, though all are nice.

  2. This is the place I enjoyed the most in London 🙂

  3. I haven’t been to the new gallery, I remember the one in the previous location. I’ll have to write it on my list of places to visit! I like these snippets of your day there.
