I love this gallery and have visited for several years. The exhibitions are varied and well curated and I have seen stunning retrospectives here as well as work by both leading and very new photographic artists. Excellent books too.

Always interesting to pop in and see the latest exhibitions - but check opening days and times. Clean lines, lots of natural light where needed and worth the visit.

I've visited a few times since moving to Fitzroy a year ago - I don't always 'get' the work I'm seeing but I enjoy visiting - the photography on show is varied and interesting.

It is small and sometimes (not often) the visit is worthwhile but rarely amazing. Mostly the exhits are disappointing. I would only recommend if you were already in the area and had some time between other engagements.

Yes, as other reviews state it is a small gallery, so just be aware of this and if you're a random traveller you may not know what to expect to be on display. It's a stand alone destination so you need to want to visit...More

This gallery is a trifle disappointing. I can't say any of the displays were outstanding. The venue is good. but the compulsory "gold coin donation" for entry is tad off-putting. Black and white photography is a medium that requires real skill and artistic ability. I...More

This place was much smaller than I expected. It's only about 2 rooms large, and they rotate exhibits through it. Not a lot of it was actually photography, which was disappointing.

Bit hit and miss - although I have seen some impressive works here. Worth a look if you are in the area.

Fitzroy is an unusual blend of working class roots,
hip gentrification, and a robust bohemian work ethic.
Along Brunswick Street and its side streets, you'll
find little independent shops where local clothes and
furniture designers display their wares. There are
specialist bookshops, funky record bars, and quality
vintage clothing shops where browsing is the next best
