Hidden away down an alley from New Oxfotd Street, the five story Photographers Gallery hosts a changing programme of international photography exhibitions in its three floors of galleries, plus a small space in the lower ground floor where prints are for sale.
There is also an excellent photography-focussed bookshop and a cafe with excellent and wholesome fresh food which is great for tea or coffee or lunch.
The current exhibitions have an American focus with filmmaker Wim Wender's poleroids - remember them? - the precurser of the instant digital photograph, and a photographic and archival expliration of the 1930's modernist and ground-breaking opera 'Four Saints in Three Acts' resulting from a collaboration between Gertrude Stein and Virgil Thompson.
There is free admission in the morning, so go then if you can, but it is not very expensive compared to other galleries.
If you can coordinate exhibitions, go from here to the Getty Images Gallery across the other side of New Oxford Street.
