Open Doors Gallery is a global platform for emerging contemporary photographic artists. Representing and developing the careers of several award winning artists, each with their own unique approach to the medium. From mixed media and sculptural artworks to darkroom creations and documentary work. We believe the limitless possibilities of the photographic medium make it the perfect prism through which to explore the world and to build a collection.

Open Doors Gallery believes in making art accessible and affordable. With no permanent fixed location, we display our artists’ work regularly through our programme of Art Fairs, exhibitions, events & publications throughout the year

Shapeshifters is the latest chapter from Jennifer Latour’s ongoing Bound Species series. Using locally sourced flowers the artist carefully constructs ‘new species’ by hand in her studio. These surreal and enigmatic characters are then photographed in her studio. Capturing these unique structures forever as limited edition prints…. READ MORE
