Photography Exhibitions London - Dec2014/Jan2015

Every time I see an ad for a photography exhibition I take a quick picture with my phone or if I see it online I save the link to my reading list or tweet about it. Most of the times though I forget about it soon after and when I actually think of going, the exhibitions are usually over.

So I thought I’ll put all these exhibitions and galleries into one notebook in Evernote, so hopefully I’ll see a few more exhibitions in the future.

When I finished the list of current exhibitions, I thought I might as well publish them on my blog, so you also have all of them in one place. I added the dates, the standard admission fees and the links for further information. 

Unfortunately I don’t have time to see all of them, but on my personal shortlist are the Taylor Wessing Prize in the National Portrait Gallery, the Great Londoners at the Hoxton and Celebrated at the Atlas Gallery.

When I’m around Oxford Circus and have some time spare, I usually pop into the Photographers’ Gallery or the Getty Images Gallery to see if they have anything new and interesting.

If you want to see some exhibitions between Christmas and New Year, just check the opening times, as they may differ during the holiday.

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