Jan Svoboda: Against the LightHaving hosted Jan Svoboda's first solo exhibition back in 1982, the Photographers' Gallery now presents Against the Light, the first major UK presentation of the Czech photographer since that first exhibition. Svoboda's ground-breaking experiments and visionary methods led to him becoming a pioneer in photographic appropriation and he went on to redefine many aspects of photography by bridging the traditions of Symbolism and Romanticism with the conceptual and self-reflexive tendencies of late Modernism. Co-organised with The Moravian Gallery in Brno, the exhibition puts around 50 vintage works on display showcasing a broad range of biographical material, personal photography and video interviews.

About Photographers' Gallery

The Photographers' Gallery - Britain's leading centre for contemporary photography - emerged from a 3.6 million pound redesign in May 2012 revealing the work of Irish architects O'Donnell and Tuomey. Relocating from Great Newport Street, its home for the past 27 years, to occupy a former warehouse built in Ramilies Street in 1910, the Photographers' Gallery has three floors of galleries, a studio floor for education activities, a bookshop, cafe and print sales space.
