Masters of Photography 2019
Nov 20 – Dec 20, 2019

Robert Mapplethorpe, Tulips, 1988

The fourth edition of Huxley-Parlour Gallery’s annual exhibition Masters of Photography will include over 30 masterworks by leading international photographers, spanning the entire history of the medium.

Masters of Photography is specifically conceived to promote understanding and connoisseurship of the photographic print, as much as the images themselves. Carefully planned and selected for up to a year in advance, the exhibition contains works of the finest quality that have been chosen for their particular subtlety, age, history and rarity.
