Our Bookshop OPENING HOURS are Tuesday – Saturday, 11am – 5pm and until 9pm on the first Thursday of every month.

The bookshop, situated in the ground floor gallery, is the only independent photography bookshop in Belfast. We sell self-published, limited edition and locally produced titles that cannot be found elsewhere, as well as critical theory, classic photo books, practical handbooks, photography magazines, journals and a range of postcards and prints.

The Bookshop also creatively connects with the Belfast Exposed programme by featuring titles and talks that engage with gallery exhibitions and events. The bookshop is a non-profit venture and all revenue is re-invested back into the organisation.
