BLOG is The Photographers’ Gallery’s edited weblog – a central location for new writing on photography and image culture, interviews and video and audio content from our programmes and archives on photography. We commission content that responds to a variety of themes, changes and developments in photography, image-making and digital and visual culture. All of our posts are open and we actively encourage opinion and debate through our comments form.


About the Gallery

The Photographers’ Gallery was founded in 1971 and is the UK’s foremost venue for presenting and learning through photography. The Gallery organises photography exhibitions and delivers an education programme of talks, workshops and projects that involve its audiences and participants in looking at, discussing, making and using photography as a starting point for learning. The Photographers’ Gallery takes advantage of our familiarity with the medium of photography to inspire, inform and challenge our understanding of the world. 


Submissions Policy

We accept writing submissions only. These may have accompanying images and should focus on a particular theme, idea, form of practice or individual’s work in photography. We rarely publish articles that exceed 1500 words in length and we will consider much shorter pieces of writing too. There are two ways to submit:


  1. Send a short proposal (150 words) on the text you would like to pitch, along with an example of your essay writing (max 1500 words).

  2. Send a complete, unpublished essay that you would like us to consider publishing.
