The new building of the Photographer’s Gallery successfully unveiled yesterday in London after a two year refurbishment project.
The gallery will be showcasing a variety of high-profile artists emerging in international and British photography.
The new construction was designed by award-winning Irish architects O’Donnell and Tuomey featuring three floors of gallery space.
At the moment, there’s an exhibition from Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky‘s photographic narrative capturing how oil impacts our lives through mechanics of production and distribution. Portrait and landscape shots show how dependent we are with oil as a finite resource.
The highly respected artist, Edward Burtynsky’s photographic depictions of the global industry have been seen at the following locations including the National Gallery of Canada, the Bibliotèque Nationale in Paris, the Museum of Modern Art and the Guggenheim Museum in New York.
The gallery is open seven days a week from 10a-6pm. Address: 16-18 Ramillies Street, London, W1F 7LW. Closest tube: Oxford Circus.
