Hg2 : The Hedonist

Photographers’ Gallery

Depending on when you read this, The Photographers’ Gallery will either be a very progressive ‘location-independent’ space (up till late 2011), or (from winter 2011, we are promised) resident in its vast, gleamingly whitewashed new home with a space for talks and events, a café and its excellent shop selling collectors’ photography books, hard-to-find equipment (handmade pinhole cameras and, yay, Polaroid paraphernalia) and – we almost forgot – three galleries in London. Until then, director Brett Rogers, ex-British Council curator, will be having much fun hosting the public gallery’s typically wide-angle (groan) programme of contemporary British and international photography – including its acclaimed Photography Prize (previous winners include Richard Billingham, Juergen Teller and Paul Graham), photographers’ talks, screenings and seminars, as well as 2011’s 40th anniversary celebrations – all offsite. It could even be more exciting than what’s promised in bricks and mortar, with access to edgy, original spaces (check website). Perhaps that promise will be delayed.
