The Photographers’ Gallery reopened to the public on Saturday 19 May after being closed for nearly two years while refurbishments on its new building were completed. The Gallery in its new location on Ramillies Street is much larger than its previous incarnation at Great Newport Street and now has substantially larger exhibition spaces. The beloved bookshop, a popular feature of the Gallery, is now located in the basement with the adjacent print sales room. Alongside the books for sale there is a range of ‘toy’ Holga cameras and accessories as well as a cabinet featuring, amongst others, a selection of refurbished Olympus Trips; all doing their bit to keep film sales alive.
Coinciding with ‘Oil’, Flowers Gallery, on Cork street is previewing Burtynsky’s new work ‘Dryland Farming’; which depicts the agricultural region of Monegros in Spain. These images will form part of his next extensive project ‘Water’ to be completed in 2013.
