MMX Gallery was founded in a former photography studio in South East London in 2014 by Mark and Magdalena Shackleton. The gallery uses photography as a catalyst to exhibit and support exciting new and established photographers and photographic artists.
Encouraging freedom of expression and pushing boundaries within the ever-changing face of contemporary photographic practice enables the gallery to show innovative works and ideas within its diverse programme of exhibitions.
Its seemingly endless possibilities is what fuels our passion for photography. Not ones to follow trends, we are always on the lookout to discover artists with a new way of looking at the world we live in. In turn, we are also unlocking archives to find hidden gems and vintage prints.
Photography needs to move us in some way and give that spark to realise what you are seeing is what you can believe in as a gallery. This way of seeing is how we will continue to bring wonderful images to our space and to a global audience.
As well as participating in prestigious Photo fairs, most notably Photo London in 2017 and 2018 our represented artists have been placed in numerous international private collections and institutions including the MAST Foundation in Bologne, Italy and the National Gallery of Art in Washington, US.
Housed in a Victorian building, the gallery is spread over two rooms.
Whether you are a collector, curator, someone who admires photography or just a curious soul, you will always get a warm welcome.
