    Travelling to London: where can I find some exhibition?

    Hi,

    I am about to leave with my family for a couple of weeks in the London area for a vacation. We'll be heading downtown 2 or 3 times.

    Is there any museum or gallery that you can suggest where to have a look at some good photographs? In the internet I have found the Photographers' Gallery, but I am sure that there might be something more to see.

    I appreciate your tips!

    You've already spotted the Photographer's Gallery which is always worth a look.

    The Victoria & Albert Museum has a small gallery dedicated to photography. The Tate Modern might have something on. I think their next show is Francis Bacon who used photography as a reference for some of his painting.

    The Magnum Print Room is worth a visit just to feel the energy of the place.

    The Stephanie Hoppen Gallery is showing work by Martin Osner.

    Grab a copy of one of the free papers they give out on the underground. They have an exhibition listing in the back.

    V&A has a print room you can visit but it's a bit slow - only a patient photographer waiting to see real photographs in the flesh with no glass in the way will understand waiting to see some pictures for 5 minutes. It's free but they don't allow pens and anything bigger than a sheet of paper (or thereabouts) into the room. Check your items into the cloakroom on the ground floor (sub-ground floor? near the subway entrance), take the lift up to the right floor and you'll find it easily. Can't remember which floor off hand. You should also have a list of what you'd like to look up to ask to be brought out as it's not a browsing sort of gallery.

    The Atlas Gallery often have good exhibitions on (they are a fine art photography gallery), they had a great selection of Josef Hoflehner's Iceland work earlier in the year and aren't far from the British Museum which you could take in at the same time:
