Hull International Photography (HIP) Gallery was opened in Hull’s Princes Quay Shopping Centre in 2014 by the Lord Mayor of Kingston upon Hull, Councillor Mary Glew. With an exhibition by international Leica photographer Fred Trobrillant. Fred’s stand out work spontaneously captures his surroundings. He lives in Montpellier, France, but his photography has taken him far and wide.
Since then the public have been invited to the successful, well attended launches of new international exhibitions every 2 months.  The exhibitions are open every afternoon free of charge.
Photography enthusiasts of all ages visit the gallery which hosts high quality international photography exhibitions in an accessible space in the city centre. There arel also be on going opportunities for local photographers to use the gallery’s resources –both studio and dark room – to develop their photography skills. Following the success of the first Hull International Photography Festival, HIPfest2014, HIP Gallery has been a year round base to view and enjoy photography and participate in HIPclub. Hull based Festival Sponsors G. F Smith have been instrumental in developing the gallery and with their support, HIPfest has already gained international interest and will take place in October 2015 and annually, including a special HIPfest in 2017 as part of the City of Culture celebrations, sharing the Quay location with the Turner Prize.
Alan Raw, Chief Executive Officer of the Creative and Cultural Company explained, “It was clear from the success of HIPfest 2014 that Hull appreciates the art of photography. Now the HIP Gallery is the place to access world class works and get involved in photography all year round.”
