Archive Highlights

The Photographers' Gallery was founded in 1971 by Sue Davies, OBE at 8 Great Newport Street, London, in a converted Lyon's Tea Café on the Covent Garden side of Soho. It was the first independent gallery in Britain solely devoted to photography. In 2008 the Gallery moved temporarily into its new premises at 16-18 Ramillies Street near Oxford Circus tube before starting an extensive transformation of the building in Autumn 2010. The new building reopened to the public on May 19 2012.

Download a list of exhibitions and photographers who have been shown in the Gallery, from 1971 to the current day.

As part of a long-term project to document the Gallery’s history, we are currently in the process of digitising all our exhibitions archive and talks recordings. To date we have completed the digitisation of the documentation relating to 10 seminal exhibitions, and the archive of talks recordings. We intend to regularly update and extend these highlights over the coming year. Should you have any archival material of relevance to any of our previous projects, events or exhibitions, or should you wish to enquire about our archive or Study Room, please do contact us by email at tpg.archive@tpg.org.uk
