Stills has a gallery space in which it presents four exhibitions a year. The research and development towards our exhibition programme is delivered by a specialist team of staff up to three years in advance of each project.

We receive numerous requests for feedback on work and proposals for exhibitions at Stills but, due to limitations on staff time, we are only able to respond if we are interested in requesting more information.

If you would like to make us aware of your work or an exhibition proposal, please email to: ben.harman@stills.org We recognize that this is an important way for us to learn about work that we may not be aware of.

Artists' BookMarket with Fruitmarket

This year Stills is delighted to collaborate with our neighbour, The Fruitmarket Gallery, to co-host their annual Artists' BookMarket event. The BookMarket is a celebration of artists' book culture and will take place at both galleries, alongside a busy events and workshop programme. This is the first year Stills has hosted a BookMarket and we are particularly keen to create a space for photographic publishing at this event.

We invite publishers, book makers and artists' book organisations to apply for a stall, which costs £75 + VAT.

Artist' BookMarket is open 11am - 6pm on Saturday 17 February and Sunday 18 February. Expect an excellent weekend of book sales and discoveries. Be part of our strong selection of book makers, art publishers, illustrators and designers, and artists working with book forms.

To apply, please email us your CV, details of what you'd like to sell at the Book Market and a selection of up to 6 images of your work.

Email; rachael.cloughton@stills.org

Please also send us your website and telephone number. If you'd like to host a workshop during the event please also send details about this.

Deadline 5th December, 5pm

Volunteer Opportunities

Stills recruits Front-of-House volunteers for each exhibition and will advertise all opportunities here when positions are available.


FRESH FOCUS at Stills is a new community for graduate photographers where they can seek peer criticism and support for their creative endeavours. The aim of the group is simple - to bring fresh practitioners together in a focused and supportive environment with the intention of fuelling critical engagement, promoting good working practices and connecting them to the wider photographic community.

The group meets twice a month at Stills (one weekday evening and one weekend) for a critique of work in development. Stills also supports the group to develop a programme of talks, critiques with guest speakers, pop-up exhibitions and participation in a range of events.

You should consider joining if you are:

  • In the early stages of your photographic career 
  • Making concept-driven thematic bodies of work 
  • Familiar with providing and receive critical feedback on such work 
  • Motivated to attend two critiques each month with new work to show 
  • Driven to develop your professional practice

Membership is for three years from the date of joining.
If you are interested in joining the group simply fill in the form below and we'll get back in touch within a week. If you have any questions you can email nic.rue@stills.org.
