Museum of London - What's on in May?

Opens 11 May until 11 November

Our evocative new exhibition explores the capital after dark through the eyes of historical and contemporary photographers.

Discover how Londoners have experienced their city at night throughout the twentieth century and uncover the secrets of the contemporary capital through portraiture, documentary, conceptual photography and film.
The exhibition draws on our extensive collection as well as loaned works from over 50 artists, including Alvin Langdon Coburn, Bill Brandt, Rut Blees Luxemburg, Tish Murtha and Nick Turpin, to explore everything from floodlit landmarks and beautiful illuminations through to the more sinister aspects of the capital at night.

From £10 when booked in advance. Open late on Friday evenings. Free for Friends and under 16s.
