 The London Alternative Photography Collective aims to bring together artists and photographers around London who wish to share alternative photography ideas and processes.

(We also have a sister group in Manchester.)

The group currently meets monthly at the Double Negative Dark Room on 178A Glyn Road in Hackney, E5 0JE. The first meeting was in July 2013, and we have had some fabulous alternative photographers to speak, including Sam WhiteHelen Pynor,  Constanza Martinez,George CrazyGLincSarah Leslie Sarah Evan JonesDouglas NicolsonTereza Cerenova, Jennifer Brookes and Gavin Maitland to name but a few!
