about us: what we do

Welcome to Impressions Gallery

Impressions Gallery is an independent, not-for-profit space for contemporary photography. Our mission is to show photography that gets you looking, thinking and talking.

We opened forty years ago as one of the first specialist photography galleries in the country, and played a vital role in changing the way people think about photography. With an international reputation, we’re proud to be in Bradford, the worlds first UNESCO City of Film. We continue to support and encourage artists and photographers who challenge and change photography.

We believe photography is for everyone. Every year over 50,000 people visit our exhibitions, take part in workshop and events, or come together to exchange ideas in a friendly environment. Be inspired and join in.

You can find us next to the new City Park in the heart of Bradford city centre.
