Originally founded as the Photo Co-op in 1984 in Wandsworth, South London, Photofusion has metamorphosed from a small collective of documentary photographers to becoming London’s largest independent photography resource centre, moving to new premises in the vibrant heart of Brixton in 1991 and receiving a National Lottery Award in 1995 for further expansion of premises.

Photofusion provides a diverse range of photographic services that continually respond to the revolution and evolution of lens-based imagery. With analogue, digital and moving image facilities, Photofusion accomplishes its key function of delivering vital training, support and career progression to photographers of all abilities.

The centre's facilities include digital suites, professional photographic studio, darkrooms, exhibition production services, picture library/agency alongside a contemporary gallery which places an emphasis on showcasing emerging photographers, alongside new work by mid-career artists. The exhibition programme includes artist talks, panel discussions and occasional related masterclasses or workshops.
