Tokyo – RPS Gallery

Reminders Photography Stronghold is a unique gallery in the Mukojima district of Tokyo. As well as a homing beautiful and spacious exhibition space it adopts a steadfast approach to supporting photography practise – hosting workshops and events, hosting artists in residence, publishing and awarding grants.

 Rome – Officine Fotografiche

Officine Fotografiche is a stunning art space and photography hub, and a major actor in the Italian photography scene, hosting talks, workshops and classes. The gallery itself offers an impressive environment for showcasing photography – tall, day-lit white walls juxtaposed against raw brick and polished concrete.

 London – Alternative showcase

Pop-up exhibitions offer a way to present images in a new context and to attract an audience that might not seek out photography in a gallery. With this alternative and experimental showcase outside the gallery walls, we’ll be pushing curatorial practice, and bringing images back to the community.

EVERYONE GETS PROFESSIONAL FEEDBACK

Collective comments are provided by our guest critic team at the end of each month. Every photographer that submits their work can earn to curate their best work and we can all discover a bit more about photography.

Sometimes you need a fresh eye on things; or perhaps you need a push out of your comfort zone. We provide impartial, unbiased and professional feedback on each month’s submissions – not something you can find just anywhere!
