At Snap Galleries we specialize in contemporary pop culture

Snap is a commercial retail gallery, and everything you see is for sale. Our customers are a global group of discerning collectors, art lovers and music aficionados who are looking for something special to hang in their homes and offices, and we ship regularly to clients in the UK, US, Europe, Australia and the Far East.

We have a deep specialism in the music photographs of the sixties and seventies, and our most popular subjects come from those two decades: Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, David Bowie, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and Jimi Hendrix. Our remit extends beyond music photography, though, and exhibitions have featured sport, fashion, dance and advertising photography. We also work with artists who produce work in non-photographic media.

In November 2011 we launched our publishing arm, Ormond Yard Press, and our first ultra-large-format book, Born To Run Revisited, with photographs by Eric Meola. We publish one or two titles each year under our Ormond Yard Press imprint, always in a spectacular large format.

Because our customers are spread around the globe, we realise that a visit to the gallery is not always possible and so the website has been designed with this in mind–to give you all the information you might need about these great artworks and the men and women who made them–and enable you to place an order quickly and easily online.

Maybe you just want to have a chat to narrow down your choices – if so then please do get in touch and we’ll be happy to help with some advice. We are only a phone call or an email away if you have any questions. We hope you enjoy browsing through the site and that you can find something extraordinary for your walls and bookshelves.


Collecting great photographs and books is a lot of fun, but there is a lot of material out there to sift through. Our mission is simple: to bring you the very best pop culture photography available anywhere on the planet, often exclusively, and often for the first time.

To bring you the best, we have to ignore the rest, and as a result we don’t work with every single artist out there who has ever worked within this genre – just the ones who made those magical photographs that grab you by the guts and connect with you on some emotional level. Our goal is to hook you up with a special piece that you can hang on your walls and enjoy every single day – whether its an instantly recognisable classic, or an obscure treasure that you always wanted but never knew you could get.


Snap is privately owned by husband and wife team, Guy and Jane White, who launched the gallery in 2004. In April 2010, we relocated to beautiful premises in the heart of St James’s in central London, moving from our previous base just outside Birmingham. We hold a series of exhibitions throughout the year at the gallery. You can read about current and all previous shows in the ‘Exhibitions’ section of the website. Photographs continue to be available after an exhibition has ended–although the best prices are invariably obtained if you buy during an exhibition.
