The firm pointed to “shifting trends” since the pandemic started, particularly online growth, prompting the decision to move.

The new gallery space, which will be used for exhibitions, is not ready but will be “more intimate in scale and a place where you can view and handle work, engage with our team of experts, meet our artists and browse our archive and library”. An opening date and full details will be announced later this year.

For now, the gallery is moving to its new archive space at the Pall Mall Deposit off Ladbroke Grove in Notting Hill where works can be viewed from June 10.

“The transfer to new pastures has been on the cards for some time – and the huge move under Covid has not been without its challenges,” said the gallery’s Michael Hoppen.

“Although we will not occupy quite as much space as we have in the past, our appetite for big projects and interesting photographs is by no way diminished.”
