About Proud

We are Proud

Over the last ten years Proud Galleries has become Europe’s most popular privately funded photographic gallery, consistently receiving some of the best press coverage in the country. With a focus on photography reflecting popular culture, encompassing rock & roll, fashion, sporting moments and more, our shows are always exciting, cutting edge and sometimes controversial.

Our unique position in the market makes us number one for photography enthusiasts, collectors, music lovers and newcomers to the field. With its finger firmly on the pulse Proud presents the very best photography in a way that cannot be beaten.

Proud Galleries Group was launched in autumn 1998 by Alex Proud to bring high quality photography to a mainstream market. Based upon a formula of exhibiting accessible shows around popular themes Proud Galleries instantly took the photography industry by storm. A series of landmark shows including ‘Destroy: The Sex Pistols’, ‘Rankin’s Nudes’, ‘The Rock n Roll Years’, ‘Underexposed’, ‘Rebel Life: Bob Marley’, ‘The Official Bob Dylan Show’ and ‘The Libertines’ attracted blanket media coverage and full‐house, star‐studded opening nights. With up to 10,000 customers per show, the galleries soon became the most popular private photographic gallery in Europe.
