Ways of Seeing: Inside The Photographers' Gallery
The Photographers' Gallery was founded in London’s Covent Garden in 1971 as the first public gallery in the UK dedicated to the medium and its practitioners. It has been a tireless champion of photography’s pivotal and influential role, socially and culturally, and continues to advocate it as one our most significant and resonant art forms. From the outset TPG has been an institution fuelled as much by the passion and commitment of its staff as by the many photographers who have shown there. This Viewpoint aims to share the different histories and perspectives from the people that have worked and shown there alongside key moments and paraphernalia from our archive. As with all of our Viewpoints, this one will be added to over time.
