About Us

The Photographic Angle (TPA) is a charitable organisation with a dedicated team of permanent staff members who ensure that all of our exhibitions are curated, marketed, and installed to a high and consistent standard.

The Team
Trustees
Ambassadors
Installation Crews
Each member of the team brings with them a particular skill set that helps to transform otherwise unused buildings into venues that bring photography to life. We aim to enable the public to engage with our exhibition themes whilst at the same time gaining some valuable knowledge that can help them to improve their own photography skills and enhance their appreciation of the art and science of photography.
