The Great Leap Sideways is a gallery space dedicated to showcasing contemporary photography. The site comprises small and extended surveys of work by contemporary photographers alongside extended interviews, features, videos and extracts from texts that illuminate the practise of photography and its wider context. This site grew out of a tumblr blog of the same name, which continues to place these interests in a broader context.

The site is organised primarily around the exhibition of photographic images, the publication of critical essays and in depth conversations with artists about their work, with features on other areas of visual arts providing some occasional perspective and variation. but it exists primarily to add some small contribution to ongoing dialogues about the making of images, the production of art, and the way these things reflect on or illuminate everyday lived experience. Thanks for stopping by.
