Museum of London - Announcing London Nights, a new major photography exhibition in 2018

11 May – 11 Nov 2018

Explore the capital after dark in a new, evocative photography exhibition at the Museum of London in 2018.

Fusing portraiture, documentary, conceptual photography and film from the late 19th century to the present day, London Nights features over 200 works from photographers including Alvin Langdon Coburn, Bill Brandt, Rut Blees Luxemburg and Nick Turpin.

Join us for this dramatic, nocturnal study of the capital and discover how photographers have long been inspired by London at night, from the twinkling lights and buzzing nightlife of the West End to the more sinister aspects of a city in darkness.
Groups of 10 or more can enjoy 20% discounts on adult tickets and can arrange an exclusive curator talk to enhance their visit.
