The Association Of Photographers

The AOP Gallery has been staging a broad range of photographic exhibitions and events for over 18 years. The gallery is committed to heightening awareness and promoting photography, presenting developments in the medium to a wide audience. Exhibition programmes represent the specific areas of advertising, fashion and editorial photography, incorporating both commercial and personal work, and producing high quality exhibitions of established and upcoming photographers. In so doing, the AOP Gallery exists to provide an appropriate and effective forum within which the membership of the AOP is able to display its creativity and professional excellence. Whilst the greater part of the schedule has always been devoted to the promotion of work of AOP members, through solo and group shows and presentation of the AOP Awards, the gallery has also shown a devotion to the AOP’s wider commitment to the photographic industry as a whole.

Forthcoming Exhibition

A Celebration of Kodachrome

18 January - 10 February 2011


Private View - Wednesday 19 January 2011, 6:30 - 8:30pm

The AOP Gallery is set to showcase a selection of captivating and evocative images all shot on Kodachrome slide film in the forthcoming exhibition A Celebration of Kodachrome.

Kodachrome, the slide-film that inspired songs, was discontinued by Kodak last year at 74 years of age. Upon hearing Kodak’s announcement that they would no longer be renewing stocks of Kodachrome, we thought it was time to celebrate this revered film!

The final selection has been made and the show features work from AOP members and members of the public. AOP photographer member Adam Woolfitt is planning an installation of his collection of Kodachrome slides inviting visitors to take a slide. So you could walk away with your own bit of history on a Kodachrome slide!

This eclectic and seminal exhibition is a must-see, featuring the work of top photographers and lovers of film.
