Impressions Gallery opened in 1972 as one of the first specialist contemporary photography galleries in Europe. Since then we have established ourselves as a leading international exhibition space for photography and digital art. We support and promote innovative and creative work that extends the boundaries of current photographic practice. Digital imagery, film and video are essential resources for the contemporary artist, and this is reflected in our programme. We are a small not-for-profit organisation who are dedicated towards providing the local community and our wider international audiences the very best of contemporary photography and digital media.

Who Do We Think We Are
- 13 December 2014 — 7 February 2015 *on now
Over the past year, we toured Red Saunders’ Hidden exhibition, a series of epic photographs recreating overlooked events from British history, to twelve schools across Bradford.
Students worked with photographer Jonathan Turner to create new artwork, playing roles to re-imagine scenes in British history, as well as producing inventive contemporary portraits. This exhibition looks at identity and what it means to play a part in society.

Funded by Arts Council England Strategic touring fund with support from Bradford Metropolitan District Council.
