The Shutter Hub OPEN 2020/21 brings together international photographers in a selected exhibition, celebrating the future of photography through diverse and creative imagery.

After the amazing success of the Shutter Hub OPEN 2018 at the Old Truman Brewery, we encored the exhibition at Amsterdam’s 5&33 Gallery. The exhibition took us through into early 2019 and was a huge success, showcasing 150 photographers and over 200 full tabloid sized newspaper prints, it was celebrated for the high standard of photography and democratic approach.

In 2020 we were invited back. Our provisional date was June 2020, but we re-scheduled for July 2021, everyone did their best to make this work but it just wasn’t possible due to the global situation with Covid 19.


Shutter Hub OPEN 20/21 is supported by:
