jfFrank online » Home » Latest » London Photography Exhibitions


The London photography exhibition landscape this November is certainly looking interesting. There is the promising Penn / Warhol exhibition which recently opened at Hamiltons Gallery in Mayfair to start. American social portraiture photography Catherine Opie is at the Thomas Dane gallery for the first time this month too. Meanwhile the masterful curation of the Beetles+Huxley annual exhibition is a treat, just north, in Mayfair.

Some London photography exhibitions, including Niko Luoma’s Rhythm, Direction Light are coming to an end. Details below for closing dates and opening times for this exhibition and others.

See the regularly updated London Photography Galleries list. The London Photography Galleries list compliments this post on London Photography Exhibitions, in addition to information on opening times and maps for the London photography exhibitions.


Penn / Warhol: Signs

Just opened

Penn is probably best known for his fashion work and associations with Vogue and Issey Miyake. Though he is known as a fashion photographer, he was, above all, an artist.

Hamiltons Gallery is in Mayfair, close to Grosvenor Square and a short walk from Green Park tube station. Nobu, on Berkeley street is on the way back to the tube station, if you fancy stopping off for some sushi.

Catherine Opie: Portraits and Landscapes

Free admission.
Catherine Opie is a U.S. photographer who, in a word, specialises in social portraiture. Talented in portrait and landscape photography, she is known for working in the foreground of calling attention to sexual identity. She is at the forefront of social American photography and accordingly won an United States Artist Fellowship Award in 2006.

Thomas Dane Gallery presents their first ever solo of Catherine Opie photo exhibition. Portraits and Landscapes showcases Opie’s most recent work. The ongoing project draws on the styles of the old European masters and include portraits of fellow artists punctuated with abstracted landscapes.

Thomas Dane Gallery is around the corner from Christies, on St. James’s Street, in St. James’s. The gallery is not at all far from Green Park and consequently St James’s. As long as the weather isn’t too bad, a walk in the parks might a fantastic opportunity to digest mentally the exhibition’s work.

Free admission.
Where: Thomas Dane Gallery.
Ends: Saturday, 18th November.

Instant Stories: Wim Wenders’ Polaroids

Free admission before noon.
Wim Wenders is probably better known as a film director than for his photography. Though one of the Oscar nominated film maker’s best known films – The Salt of the Earth – a colourful portrait of Brazilian photographer does encroach on the world of photography.
Rather than focus on Wim Wender’s artistry, this exhibition at London’s Photographers Gallery features vernacular photography providing a rare insight into Wenders’ thought process, preoccupations and aesthetic inspirations. The images date from a prolific stage in his career during which he took some 12,000 Polaroids. The Polaroids on display – with faded colours, many marked and some creased – have a certain characteristic, evoking sentiments of a classic era. A point underlined by some of the portraits including one of Dennis Hopper.

The Photographers’ Gallery is by Liberty of London, not far from either Oxford Street or Regent Street. The gallery has a great café which also serves scrumptious salads, and some less healthy treats!

Free admission before noon.
Where: The Photographers’ Gallery.
Ends: Sunday, 11th February.

Torbjørn Rødland: The Touch that Made You

Free admission.
Torbjørn Rødland is a Norwegian photographer, born in Stavanger, who creates often surreal work: portraits and landscapes. His landscape work dates to earlier in his career including the Norwegian Landscapes series made while he lived in Bergen, Norway. His early passion was drawing rather than photography. This early work, often featuring caricatures was too easily decodable for Rødland’s visually advanced mind, despite his young age at the time. So he moved to photography seeking the challenge of creating images which were required more thought to decipher and made the viewer want to reflect. In fact with his more emotional photographs, Rødland tries to make the viewer reflect rather than entertain or provoke reaction.

The Touch that Made You, at the Serpentine Sackler Gallery is Rødland’s first solo UK exhibition. A diverse selection of his work made over the last two decades is on show.

The Serpentine Sackler Gallery is in Kensington Gardens, Hyde Park, probably equidistant from South Kensington and Lancaster Gate tube stations.

Free admission.
Where: Serpentine Sackler Gallery.
Ends: Sunday, 19th November.
