Open Eye Gallery, 19 Mann Island, Liverpool Waterfront, Liverpool, L3 1BP – Visit Now

Open Eye is one of the UK’s best-such galleries, an independent photography space and archive in Liverpool with a 35 year-plus history. As well as a regular programme of changing exhibitions, featuring both national and international photographers, Open Eye also runs courses, workshops and talks for serious photographers. Its archive, meanwhile, contains images that date back 80 years. Open Eye moved to its current location in 2011; it is housed in a dedicated space within the controversial ‘fourth Grace’ development at Mann Island, part of Liverpool’s waterfront and a few minutes’ walk from Tate Liverpool.
