Photography Exhibitions London - May/June2015

I just booked my tickets for the 2015 Sony World Photography Exhibition, so I thought it’s time again to have a look what other photography related exhibitions are on in London over the next couple of months. Please find below a whole list with links and dates to exhibitions and galleries. Most of them are admission free, but for some of the bigger events you have to pay for.

As I just mentioned I will go to the 2015 Sony World Photography Exhibition at the Somerset House. Thanks to theprintspace, who printed, framed and mounted this year’s awards, you can get 20% off by using the code “theprintspace20”!

I’m also thinking of going to Photo London, a 4-day event at the Somerset House as well, where galleries will be exhibiting a diverse range of photographs. Furthermore there will be talks, music, screenings and social events!

Tate Britain has a very interesting and rare exhibition of salted paper prints from 1840-1860, one of the earliest forms of photography. I am fascinated by those old processes and find it very inspirational to see where we come from, so I hope I can make it to the Tate to have a look at some 150-year-old prints!

Speaking of inspiration I think it’s important to also look at and learn from other non-photographic arts, so I try to go to the National Gallery and the Tate Modern every now and again. I do really like the look and feel of impressionist paintings, so I will have a chance to learn more about it at the current exhibition at the National Gallery “Inventing Impressionism”.

I’m not sure if I can actually make it to all the exhibitions I just mentioned, definitely not to all of the ones I listed below, but I will of course find the time to pop into the Photographer’s Gallery and have a look at the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize 2015!

If you know of any other exhibitions or galleries in and around of London, please leave a comment and share :-)
