Tate Gallery Reopens After Lockdown: A Photography Playground

Tate Gallery Reopens

The Tate Gallery reopens this week after a 4 months closure due to the pandemic. Actually, not just the Tate Modern but all Tate galleries across UK. I’m very happy this is finally happening. As an art-lover but as a photographer as well.

The Tate, specifically the Tate Modern, is a massive playground to all London-based street photographers. Its architecture may not appeal to everyone. I, for one, am not necessarily a fan of Brutalism. But I do like this structure for the photographic opportunities that it offers.
And then of course it hosts all sorts of amazing exhibitions. I became a member only to be able to go over and over to see the Olafur Eliasson one.
So… I didn’t think I would, but I missed it in these 4 months. I’m glad the Tate gallery reopens.

The entrance is free, as always, but now you have to go through the booking process. It’s a necessary measure for crowd control, to make sure every visitor stays safe when inside. So I booked it and managed to secure a spot with the very first batch of visitors. I was first in line (almost)!

Now, London being London, I was not greeted with the stereotypical Summer. It had rained all night and it was cold a fair bit as well. Nevertheless, I managed to find enough light to shoot an infrared photo as well, which of course then had to become my YouTube thumbnail.

The Video

I was so inspired by the reopening of the Tate gallery that I took quite a few pictures worthy of being included in the video. I stuffed 45 photos in this 11-minutes clip! And over 2 minutes are taken by a very nice chat with a special guest I randomly met just outside!

But I’m not going to digress any further. The Tate gallery reopens after the lockdown, this is the big news. And this my video:
