The Photographers' Gallery was founded in 1971 by Sue Davies in a converted Lyon’s Tea Bar in Great Newport Street in London’s Covent Garden. In 2012 the gallery relocated to a 1910 warehouse in Ramillies Street, Soho. The specially designed building in the heart of the West End, offers three world-class exhibition spaces, a dedicated education and learning studio, a digital media wall, an enhanced area for the bookshop and Print Sales – including a gallery – as well as a spacious café area.

The Photographers' Gallery is the largest public gallery in London dedicated to photography. From the latest emerging talent, to historical archives and established artists, we're the place to see photography in all its forms. It offers a wide range of talks and events, including artist talks, free film screenings and career advice for aspiring photographers.

A key part of the gallery's programme is the prestigious annual international photography Prize. Founded in 1996 with Citigroup, the Prize is now sponsored by the Deutsche Börse group and celebrates its 10 year anniversary in 2014. This high-profile exhibition and award of £30,000 celebrates and commends a living photographer for a distinctive body of work or publication (produced in the year before the award is given) that has significantly contributed towards photography in Europe. Past prize-winners include Andreas Gursky (1998), Shirana Shahbazi (2002), Juergen Teller (2003) Luc Delahaye (2005), Robert Adams (2006), Walid Raad (2007), Esko Männikkö (2008), Paul Graham (2009), Sophie Ristelhueber (2010), Jim Goldberg (2011), artist duo Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin (2013) and the 2014 winner Richard Mosse.

The gallery represents around 35 photographers and offers prints for sale.
