It’s good to see the photographers’ Gallery open again after a major extension and refurbishment. There is more exhibition space, extra room for workshops and study and better scope for new media, both as exhibits in their own right and to interpret other work. The 'What do you see?' space encouraged me to sit down and write about what I was looking at. Exhibitions are accompanied by a creative programme of talks and workshops.
The cafe is on the ground floor and the bookshop in the basement, both open from 09.00 (weekdays) providing the perfect start to the day - I sat at the window watching the world go by and browsing the magazines. The exhibitions and other spaces are open from 10.00 (11.30 Sunday). A new addition is the camera obscura, which is open 12.00-15.00 Monday and Thursday and the first Saturday of every month.
