Powerful

Outstanding way to highlight the lack of care on offer to anyone with stage 4 breast cancer

Shocking but true

These ladies deserve the very best in treatment and care along with compassion and understanding.

A great gallery with two floors of exhibitions. Every time I’m in Belfast I make time to visit, as they always have an interesting program featuring both the work of emerging photographers and better known photographers. They also have a small bookshop of photography books to spend time perusing!

Regrettably unable to provide a thorough review as the gallery was closed despite being registered as open on trip advisor and on the door of the gallery. WARNING call before you go!

We are sorry to hear that you came when we were temporarily closed. Our galleries open Tuesday to Saturday, 11am to 5pm, as listed on TripAdvisor, but unfortunately the galleries were closed today as we were installing our next exhibition. Each of our exhibitions are on show for around two months, and then we have to close the galleries to begin installing the next exhibition. We are unable to show these times on TripAdvisor, but our website and social media would show we are closed. The new exhibition opened this evening at 6pm, and from tomorrow the exhibition is open during the normal opening hours until 22nd December. We hope that you are still in the area and are able to come and see the exhibition!

Had booked a two day documentary photography course but did not bother making the journey for the second day. The person conducting the course appeared to be out of his depth and simply read out the notes on the screen which we could all read ourselves. Found it odd that someone who admitted that he wasn't comfortable photographing strangers should lecture on a course like this.Towards the end of the session, no-one seemed to know what to do and we all drifted off and did our own thing.Was disappointed overall and could have learned more if we had been given a list of photographer names whose work was on the screen. Could've looked them up online.Just didn't feel it would be worth making the journey to Belfast for the second day.

This was excellent, I learnt so much in the time and would have loved another more advanced follow up course on the same subject. Conor was brilliant, very knowledgeable and extremely helpful. Thank you.

Great place to casually call in or attend exhibition openings. Wide range of books in the book shop.

Beautiful galleries and exhibitions. Highly recommended. Really friendly, well informed and helpful staff. I've also heard great things about the photography courses and would love to do one very soon.
