Shutter Hub OPEN 23/24

The Shutter Hub OPEN 23/24 brings together over 130 international photographers in a selected exhibition and promotes the future of photography through diverse and creative imagery.

From 27 November 2023 to 16 February 2024*, we’re taking over four floors of the ARB building at Cambridge University (where we’ve shown many other awesome Shutter Hub exhibitions, including POSTCARDS FROM EUROPE and EVERYTHING I EVER LEARNT) transforming the space and covering the walls.

We’ve teamed up with our favourite newspaper print partners, Newspaper Club, to produce this exhibition and we’ll fill the space with 100s of fabulous images.


As always there’ll be an award for the ‘Best in Show’, where viewers will get to vote for their favourite photographs from the exhibition. This is much more about audience participation than it is about big prizes, but it’s a fun and engaging way to involve more people in responding to photography.

Join us for the exhibition launch on 10 December 2023 and alongside our ‘private view’ get-together (RSVP here), we’ll be hosting a Book & Zine Fair too! Joined by over 25 exhibitors, we’ll be bringing along our Shutter Hub Editions photobooks, and alongside these, we’ll be fundraising for Camera Amnesty Projects with the sale of a selection of secondhand, vintage and antique books, vintage postcards, limited edition collections, accessories, and photography paraphernalia.


*The Shutter Hub OPEN 23/24 was originally scheduled to close on 02 February 2024. Due to popular demand, the exhibition has been extended to run until 16 February 2024.
