Anti-Racism: A Statement from Photofusion

Photofusion stands against racism and supports Black Lives Matter. We continue to work as we have done, towards embodying the values of anti-racism with our work and organisation. The barbaric killing of George Floyd has had a significant and distressing impact on us all. We acknowledge the presence of systemic racism in society and further consider what we can do to counter racism whenever and wherever it occurs.

In response to recent events and in support of Black Lives Matter, we have been working alongside our young people’s collective, Sorry2AnnoyU (S2AU), to craft a visual response and related programming.  As from tomorrow, we are excited to be turning our social media over to these young people.  We are immensely proud of the work they have made over the past two weeks.  Announcements on programming and funded opportunities for BAME artists who wish to make work in support of Black Lives Matter will be forthcoming.


Photofusion is closed to the public!

We hope you are all safe and well and that you continue to wash your hands like they are fibre prints! We continue to support photographers and our members during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Like the rest of the art world, we have had to make the decision to close to the public from 6pm on Friday 20th March 2020 . 

Most of us will be working from home, so feel free to email or call us on 020 7738 5774 if you need anything, even if it’s just to commiserate!  

We are still offering printing and mounting services, but with reduced interaction with clients. Please email [email protected] to discuss requirements and time scales.


Film processing – Hybrid Mail order service

You can now book film processing online, and drop films off in person to the reception of International House, Monday – Friday 10:30am – 4:30pm.


We have been thinking of ways to keep our community active during this very surreal situation and have developed online events and workshops. Please follow us @photofusionuk to find out more or get involved.


Buy Now, Photograph Later
(and get 25% extra)

We anticipate that this will be a very difficult few months for photographers, organisations and for us. We rely on earned income to survive, so we have just launched a Photofusion Pre-Pay Voucher. 

Well over fifty percent of our income comes from you, attending our courses, processing your film, printing your photos, using our darkrooms & scanners and just spending time here at Photofusion with us. Without you, well, there is no us.

To respond to the very real issue of cashflow, we are offering you the opportunity to buy vouchers worth 25% more than their cost (spend £100 and receive £125 in return).

These vouchers will help put cash in the till and provide vital funds to ensure we are here for you once this emergency is over. You can spend them anytime, there is no time-limit.

We are determined to survive and keep being your photography centre.

We hope to be back soon, but in the meantime please stay safe.


Film Developing


Mail order service only!

We offer a range of film developing and scanning services. Drop your film off and it will be hand-processed by our highly skilled technicians. We can develop both black and white film and C41 colour film in 35mm, 120 and 4×5 film formats. We also have a postal option if you can’t make it to our space.

Photography Courses


We run a wide range of photography courses, each led by an experienced professional. There is something for everyone – whether you are new to photography and want to learn camera basics or you are a pro looking to develop additional skills. We even have one-to-one options available so we can tailor the lessons to you.

Exhibition: SIXTEEN x S2AU


7 February 2020 – 19 March 2020

This exhibition is the culmination of its year long tour across Britain, visiting 15 cities and towns, from Shetland to Belfast, via Hull and Newlyn. For our show at Photofusion, we turned over the Sixteen project to our youth collective, Sorry 2 Annoy U (S2AU). They have curated, programmed and planned the exhibition, including inviting local artists to respond to the themes addressed in the exhibition.

Talks And Events

We are running a reduced schedule, with darkrooms open on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays (11.30-4.30pm) only.
