Urban spaces have always been significant sources of inspiration for photographers for a very good reason; the dwelling places of much of humanity provide intensified experiences of how we shape our environment and how we live in the environment we create for ourselves. Cities offer a bounty of visual stimuli for the eye and the camera to catch. The structural beauty of the still lines and shapes of the buildings and streets provide for exciting compositions. The ever-changing swirl of the streets challenges us to capture precious passing moments. Urban life shows an entirely different face during the day and with the lights on at night.
Cities are usually busy with action, but recently we have experienced empty streets as well. There are endless ways of portraying the life of the inhabitants of cities, endless ways for photographers to construct their unique interpretations of what urban environments mean for them.
PH21 Gallery is a contemporary exhibition space established in 2012 in Budapest, Hungary.

Our main exhibition space is located in one of the most exciting and lively neighbourhoods in the centre of Budapest, at 55 Ráday St. The PH21 Gallery Project Room, a second space just across the street, opened in January 2019 at 52 Ráday St. PH21's Project Room programmes are supported by the Local Government of Ferencváros District (Budapest Főváros IX.
