Exhibition: London Nights / from 11 May 2018

Explore London after dark in a new, evocative photography exhibition at the Museum of London, opening in 2018.

Fusing portraiture, documentary, conceptual photography and film, London Nights will reveal the city after dark through photographs ranging from the late 19th century to the present day. Drawing from the Museum's extensive collection and loaned works, 50 artists, including Alvin Langdon Coburn, Bill Brandt, Rut Blees Luxemburg and Nick Turpin, will be represented through over 200 works.

London Nights will take visitors on a dramatic, nocturnal study of the capital. From the unexplored to the imagined, from Soho to Sydenham, see stunning images of a city illuminated by limited natural and artificial light. Uncover the more threatening side of night-time London, and see how Londoners work, rest and play when the sun goes down in one of the biggest metropolises in the world.

If you are visiting as a group of 10 or more, please book your visit in advance using the group booking form. Groups receive discounted exhibition tickets and can also book an introductory tour with the exhibition curator. Visit the group visits page for more information.
