The Leicester Peoples Photographic Gallery (The LPPG)
This dedicated space houses around 168 photographs and boasts to be the second largest single collection of photographic works outside of London. The gallery which is the first of its kind provides a mixed array of spaces for photographers to display their work. The nice thing about The LPPG is that all photographers are welcome to show their work, from the most dedicated amateur to more talented professional.
The LPPG has two main exhibition spaces, the Main Gallery and the Long Gallery.
On the mezzanine level of the building the Main Gallery is housed. Images are displayed in the original lending library shelves making an unusual backdrop to host each photograph. The expanse of space is actually a continuous circulating balcony gives viewers the chance to not only view images at a first-hand level but also glance across the entire space at the whole collection with a bird’s eye view. The Long Gallery with both wall and floor space is a more traditional setting which houses photographic exhibitions and can be hired by private individuals to show their work.
The Leicester People’s Photographic Gallery is seen as a fantastic way of encouraging creative local talented individuals to showcase their work and is supported by a number of professional photographers and local businesses including John e Wright the printers.
