Photographers' Gallery re-opens today

The Photographers' Gallery in London re-opens to the public today after a major refurbishment and rebuilding programme. Speaking to BPH at the launch yesterday Brett Rogers, Director, said that the refurbishment has exceeded her expectations.

The building has been extended and the first major exhibition over two floors is Burtynsky's Oil which runs to 1 July. The new space does full justice to the large format colour prints.

An extended print room, bookshop and cafe add to the venue and the latter seems set to to become a great meeting place for photographers.
