The London Alternative Photography Collective aims to provide a forum for anyone interested in alternative photography ideas and processes. London Alternative Photography Collective will now be meeting on First Tuesdays at Doomed Gallery Dalston, 65 – 67 Ridley Road, E8 2NP.
Accessibility and experimentation is at the heart of LAPC. We provide monthly artist talks, opportunities to exhibit works and will organise special events such as: photo walks, demonstrations and workshops.
Our most recent event was London Pinhole Festival, which included a curated exhibition at Doomed Gallery Dalston, a pinhole camera workshop, artist talks, a pinhole camera flashmob and a Large Format Portrait tent on Ridley Road in Dalston.
We encourage everyone from amateur, emerging and established photographers to get involved! If you would like to learn a particular process, please do contact us, as we are in touch with many specialists who may be able to help you.
