Billed as a “significant new space that seeks to champion photography made in Britain,” The Centre for British Photography is a free public galley that’s well worth visiting,
A charitable initiative, the three floor venue has exhibition spaces, a programme of public events, an archive, and a shop, and aims to provide a dedicated home for British Photography in all its diversity.
The aim is to host exhibitions curated independently by outside curators and institutional partners as well as to provide access to the Hyman Collection and in so doing present an expansive overview of British photography past and present.
The centre is located in Jermyn Street, just off Piccadilly in central London for an initial period of two years.
All exhibitions are free to enter, and all profits from the gallery shop will go to fund the centre and its grants programme.
